“Average place to grab a bite or beer”
Review of Ganir Restaurant

Ganir Restaurant
Ranked #4 of 5 Restaurants in Colonia
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 August 2016

Ganir is located upon the second level of the YCA building. The interior is small but has a TV you can watch. There is also outdoor covered seating where you can look out at the bay. This is not a bad place to capitalize on happy hour and grab a relatively cheap beer.

Seating is wooden benches and your typical cheap plastic chairs.

The food is moderately priced but not overtly impressive. They have decent portions.

I recently spent 3 weeks in Yap, eating at the Ganir virtually every night. I worked my way through the menu! The food is great. Staff are very friendly and the service is swift too. It's only a couple of hundred yards away from the Manta Ray Bay Resort, which makes it handy too.

Only ate there twice, but I was happy w/the food, especially the portions. The salisbury steak w/gravy was good, and came w/a huge serving of rice.

We checked other sources and found a lot of good reviews for this place. So... why not try it, right?

Well, this place is a tease. -__- There's a really great menu on the corner wall (right above the cash register) that lists great prices for coconut crab and mangrove crab. When we asked about them, we found out that they haven't carried those items for years.

So we tried something else. A little disappointment never hurt anyone...? We ordered their special... which was still $7.95 when we paid (so I'm not sure what happened in underwaterfun's case). Asked for a coconut, but they were also out. What was their special? Canned mixed vegetables, rice, a couple slices of frozen tuna sashimi, and I think there was something else, but completely not memorable enough.

Why 2 stars? Taste was bland, quality was not great (maybe average), and the menu was filled with broken promises. On the flip side, the food's cheap (compared to the Manta Ray Resort), food came out fast, and the owner was nice...

The prices were very reasonable and the portions extravagant, the food was salty but deliciously fresh!
