We were so looking forward to a steak after finally managing to get the attention of a staff member were told there was no beef steak. So again perused the menus and again tried to get the attention of a staff member as they seemed to disappear downstairs too often. We were then informed there were also no pork steaks.... More

Maribago Grill is a hugely popular Filipino grill, particularly with visiting Japanese and Korean tourists. It came to us highly recommended by our hotel staff, but turned out to be a big disappointment. The restaurant itself is in a delightful garden setting, with individual palm thatched gazebos where you can sit and enjoy the ambiance under garden lights. The trouble... More

This is a good location if you want to stay on the island and get a little bit of the native cusine. The only problem is you need to go early because by 6 PM the Koreans take over the restaurant and it is very crowded. The down side of eating here is that they are quite slow and it... More

What saves this place is the ambiance, especially when you're placed a bit out of the way. The food is average, typically Filipino and portions are fairly small but cheap. Staff were friendly, professional and prompt with service.

The ambiance is very nice I was in that place many years ago and it's still the same. I have to say that not all dishes are good, but some are really excilent, especially the spare ribs. Don't forget to put musguito protection, because there are a lot.

We have been to Maribago grill several times and never been disappointed. We went there for dinner with some visitors and the liked it so much we went back for lunch a few days later. All the dishes are great but the sisig and the kinilaw are outstanding.

Wide selection of Filipino food with affordable prices. Those little cottages make a good place to relax and dine but I think it added to the delay in serving our orders -caused by distance from the main area. We also need to get up to call for a service crew. But overall, it was satisfying because we love Filipino dishes.

The food was great and price is not so expensive. This restaurant is very popular, so I recommend to go there around 5:00pm-6:00pm for dinner, or make a reservation :) Service charge 5% is included the bill, so you do not need to give them a tip.

This restaurant serves typical Filipino dishes. Taste is fine. Not extra-ordinary. Just fine. Reasonable prices. Ambiance made it all worth it. Really good laid-down feel after a busy day. Recommended for foreigners who want to try local :)
