It is an old ancestral house
transformed into a cafe/restaurant........
What makes this famous is that ...they have this special menu and special ingredient....
which is the crab.....they get it in their own backyard......(they are near the beach that is why ..........the crabs are coming out from the holes in their...backyard)
Unique isn't it..........
The downpoint only is that staff are not well trained to interact with guests........
and second...they should let the tourist know...that their main menu should be ordered one day in advance,,,,,,
Because guest go there because of the crab menu...not the typical adobo or mechado.....dishes
Favorite Dish: Should be the Ginataang Alimango....but i did not get the chance to eat this because if you order this It should be one day in advance....the menu is hard to cook and will take long hours.......
But i ordered their other menu because its alredy lunch and the next restaurant will take sometime.......
BUt what i did i get the chance to get a picture of the live Crab.......good enough...i think.....
they have Boleno's singer singing reggae.......
any food.......is good......because you are cruising the Loboc river which is a great idea...
Ipaid 400 for the buffet.....
and 100 for the entrance fee
Favorite Dish: Everything is good from the main course to the dessert.....
The Pyramid is a new Restaurant on Alona beach.
It opened mid December 2006.
Right on beach.
Does a mixture of local and western dishes at reasonable prices.
Favorite Dish: The Pyramid Special starter is great. Fresh prawns in a great sauce.
While looking for a place to have dinner in Bohol, we first planned to eat at the restaurants along alona beach where you can pick fresh seafood and have them grilled. However, we found it a bit expensive. (Medium sized squid was P200-P250 per piece; A slice of tanigue was at P250 per piece-- expensive for budget travellers like us hehehe). Good thing there's Trudi's Place. They have a variety of dishes to choose from at reasonable prices (grilled squid is only P90/order :))
Payag Jo's Chicken Inato in Matig-a St where, predictably, excellent chicken dishes are served. The restaurant is very basic and native. It specializes in chicken barbeque which is very famous in Tagbilaran. You can eat with your bare hands. Price is cheap.
Favorite Dish: I love their chicken barbeque. Simply yummy!
Reasonable price (actually the cheapest in the beach area) , great food and you get to eat overlooking the sea. You can get Coke at the actual selling price. Cost should be about P160/meal.
Favorite Dish: Cordon bleu
Food was cheap compared to other place.
We ate here because we read this place had good reviews.
We ate cordon bleu and sauteed fish with brocoli.. Both food was cheap and yummy :)
DON"T buy the FRUIT SALAD Though, because it is only a mixture of friends and in small quantity. Not worth the 85 pesos.
IT also had wifi!
Favorite Dish: Cordon Bleu
No trip to Alona Beach would be complete without visiting Oops. An extensive menu featuring international cuisine, fresh fish and traditional Filipino dishes. Happy hours 6-7pm and 9-10pm. Saturday night disco is a favorite with tourist and locals alike. The service at Oops is both friendly and professional and the staff will always remember your name.
Favorite Dish: Fresh seafood.
If you choose to stay in BBC, be aware that they often have "set menu" which means you eat what they want you to eat. The buffet meals may look nice, but other restaurants anywhere in the Philippines easily offer better choices. My family went to Bohol Beach Club one night before us, and were so unimpressed with the dinner, they made sure we ate elsewhere from then on. Only problem is that the other restaurants and resorts are at least 15 mins away and securing transportation is expensive (roughly 500 pesos one way).
We stayed almost a week and were offered decent service by the regular waiters, however, it was often observed that typical customers had difficulty getting help. Aesthetically, all is beautiful, but poor choices and even spoiled food on the last night prevent us from recommending the restaurants at BBC.
Favorite Dish: Pan De Sal.
The only theme restaurant in Tagbilaran: Western. It is special in a sense that you don't mention to the waitress your order, instead you write it down in a paper which is given to you together with the menu... Almost all of the employees serving you are deaf people.
Favorite Dish: The onion rings.... I'll try their recommended steaks the next time I come back!
It's undeniable that the Loboc River cruise is just amazing. Add the sumptous feast of local food while cruising the experience is just amazing. That was the ideal purpose of our trip, but our tour guide brought us to this restaurant which served us with blandly flavored local cuisine and unappetizingly cooked. It was plentiful but you wouldn't be asking for another bite after your first. We didn't have stomach aches but surely our stomachs are craving for a better food than they served.
Favorite Dish: None
The restaurant is a local restaurant with an old western theme in it. The place was well decorated and oh the food was the best. The food has particularly rich flavor and you will have lots of viands to choose from their menu. The dessert of mango pie topped with ice cream was sweet and unique. It has a bakery inside and their specialty is mango pie.
Favorite Dish: Mango pie topped with ice cream
This restaurant is an old stone house just beside Dauis Church. It has its best location and a homely ambiance. The place had a large patio where you'd love to just sit and stare at the calm river. The food in the menu consist of native Filipino dishes and desserts. The humba and adobo was delicious. It has a gift shop inside.
Favorite Dish: Tsokolate eh souffle was awesome
The Bamboo Resto is one of the 2 restaurants of Bohol Bee Farm. You reach it by walking down from the parking area, passing by the refreshing greeneries and exotic flowers. It has a nice native decor motif, and has a viewdeck where one's eyes can feast on the awesome seascape.
Favorite Dish: We liked the organic vegetable & flower salad with honey mustard dressing. The flowers were surprisingly delicious!
located at the far side of the alona beachfront is lost horizon's resto. they serve the best vegetarian chopsuey...and their spicy squid...yum yum! the staff are friendly, though i think they're friendlier to foreign tourists. it's okay, thfood they serve makes up for that. the prices for their dishes are somewhat average, so expect to shell out around 300pesos per dish which serves 2-3 persons.
Favorite Dish: try their vegatarian chopsuey...i've never had a meatless dish this good!
