  • dream wave (i'm not too sure of the name though): the yummiest dish!

    by joei Updated Apr 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    one of the better restaurants in white beach, ambiance and crowd-wise.

    Favorite Dish: dreamwave's special seafood rice!

    the kebab's good, too. but my friends say the ones being grilled on beachfront stall's are much better. but if ever you do try the kebab in this restaurant, chicken tastes better than pork but pork has no bones unlike chicken.

    Dreamwave Hotel Restaurant: Loved the Cheezy Squid!

    by mistletoe63 Updated Apr 14, 2007

    The restaurant's food was really good. We ordered the Sizzling Cheezy Squid P210 and garlic rice P20/cup. It was enough for my boyfriend and I. We also tried the Four Seasons Shake P95. We really loved the squid; a bit expensive, but worth it! The restaurant's look is pretty... definitely better and more upscale than the other restaurants and food places in White Beach. It also has a pleasant ambience, and has a nice view of the sea. The service was excellent; they really made you feel at home.

    Favorite Dish: Sizzling Cheezy Squid P210 - squid stuffed with cheese, onions and tomatoes in a sizzling platter! So yummy!

    Seafood Restaurant: I LOVE SEAFOODS

    by Airalicious Written Apr 1, 2007

    A place where you can relax in the early evening. The huge round bar is a good place to sit with a good drink and talk with other guests or with the bartenders who might challenge you some cork games or a round of billiard.

    The foods was really great and one thing i like is that the orders doesnt take long!the place is clean and quite and you can feel the fresh air coming from the ocean!

  • Hemingway's Beach Cafe: The best food in Puerto Galera

    by johninlipa Written Feb 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were guided to Hemingway's on Sabang beach by out Lonely Planet Guide, that said it was the best restaurant in Puerto Galera. We weren't dissapointed as we had a lovely meal - mostly Caribbean, but with great Spanish Tapas to start.

    The ambience is very relaxed with soft lighting and lovely views over the sea. Soft Spanish music playing in the background.

    Favorite Dish: I had the mussels to start - fresh from the tank with white wine sauce. Great with fresh French bread. My wife opted for Spanish meatballs with an usual dipping sauce from the Canary Islands - lots of garlic and paprika.

    We both had the same main course. Fresh black fish baked in banana leaves with black squid ink rice and a mango salsa. Absolutely delicious. It made a refreshing change from all the other restaurants in the area which seem to serve exactly the same 'international' food.

    Paul's Restaurant: Friendly owner & Staff

    by amphitrite30 Written Jan 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Their dishes are pretty much the same as the other restaurants in White Beach Puerto Galera, what made us stay there is service they gave us eventhough we haven't told them we're really going to eat at their resto. I asked the owner (I think he's Paul) the size difference of the Grilled Liempo between the Grilled Porkchop, there are only 2 of us plus our baby who will eat so we wouldn't want to other too much and he gladly called his nephew to assist us. The owner's nephew (I forgot his name though) is very accomodating and he even offered to take our picture after we finished our meal.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered the Grilled Liempo (Php110) Plain Rice (Php20 each) and Mango Shakes (Php40 each), our total bill is Php 230 and we left a Php20 tip.

    Hemmingways: Best on Sabang

    by B16BLR Written Oct 14, 2006

    The best meal we had during our 9 days on the island. Even though we had two power cuts during the meal preparation it still came out well cooked and presented. All of our party enjoyed their food (6 adults 2 kids) and it was very good value for money

    Favorite Dish: All of the ones we had were very good

    Bondi Restaurant: Worst attitude on the island

    by B16BLR Written Oct 14, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food for our party was terrible. The fish was offf but this was denied by the owner. My wife's beef was so salty as to make it inedible. When she complained about it the owner said she had been offered a replacement meal (which she had refused as everyone else had almost finished by that time) and that it was cheap anyway so we should not ask for that to be taken off the bill. This guys attitude and comments were abysmal. He also refused to take anything off for the rotten fish.

    Favorite Dish: None

  • Hemingway's: Cuban food with a twist!

    by johninlipa Updated Aug 24, 2006

    We tried several places to eat in Puerto Galera. Most restaurants seem to serve good grub - but nothing to write home about.
    Hemingway's was different. The Lonely Planet Philippines said it was the best restaurant in the area - but we've found that their book is as often wrong as right. In this case they got it right!
    The restaurant is located right on the beach with a nice natural decor of stone and wood. It has a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We spoke to the owner who greeted us at our table and he talked us into some Mojitos. This was the first bar outside of Manila tha I found with Mojitos. Really authentic with mint and lime muddled directly in the glass.
    Hemingway's is themed on Caribbean, Cuban and Italian food - apparently everywhere that Ernest Hemingway lived. It definitely stands out from all other restaurants in the area with great attention to detail and we'll be going bck for sure next time we're n Puerto Galera.

    Favorite Dish: Starters: I had the garlic mussels which were fabulous, lots of homemade bread to soak up the juices. Jinky had the fresh fish soup - delicious and just loved the sweet potato fries on the side
    Main dish: I had the Blue Marlin Creole - I'd never tasted anything like this before. A big marlin steak stewed? in a tomato and cinnamon sauce. Served with fried plantain bananas which really gve the flavour of the islands. Jinky had the Jamaican jerk chicken - again something new to both of us. "Jerk' are the spices added to the meat. Really lovely with a nice side dish of mango salsa and saffron rice.
    Dessert: we shared a fresh fruit plate with some homemade sorbet.

    Restaurants in White Beach, Puerto Galera: You can eat a lot!

    by travelpitstops Written Apr 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ~~For every meal, be prepared to allot at least around P 100 ($ 2) to be sure of a hefty meal. You can also choose from the variety of the freshly caught seafood in almost every restaurant every night. There is not much variety but they some have pizza's (FERNANDOS) and a few other cuisine. But mostly, it is grilled (kebab included) and Filipino food. For the budget conscious, you can bring canned goods and have it sauteed by the restos for a minimal charge of P 60 ($ 1) and have your bottles of mineral water refilled starting from P 10.
    ~~Of course, nothing beats the traditional Filipino HALO-HALO (which literally means mix-mix made from fruits and sweets) and the fruit shakes! You can get each at P 50 ($ 1) in all restos. Best eaten under the sun! :)

    Tropicana: Another western place

    by Restless-in-kl Written Jan 12, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tropicana is situated at the road that leads to Sabang Beach (it's where the jeepney stop is). Shaped like an old castle, the restaurant is dark and rather damp. There is a money changer here as well.

    We ordered the caesar salad, aglio olio pasta and 2 calamansi for Pesos 445.

    Unfortunately, food is not good and I would not recommend it.

    Tamarind: Seafood place

    by Restless-in-kl Written Jan 12, 2006

    The menu at Tamarind mainly consists of seafood and meats. Its location right next to the sea seems quite nice so we decided to try.

    We had spare ribs, seafood with vegetables and 2 drinks for Pesos 720 which is expensive. Food is just acceptable.

    McRom: Very sizzling stuff - highliy recommended

    by Restless-in-kl Updated Jan 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sizzling hot plates, that is! That's McRom specialty. If seafood and curry are what you're after, this is the place.

    After placing our orders, we were given vouchers for a free 15 min head and shoulders massage while we wait for our food! Then 2 free Baileys shooters were given after dinner.

    How's that for extra treatment?!

    Food is so good here that we came back again for a spot of fish and chips and salad with bruscheta

    Favorite Dish: I love th grilled lapu-lapu (fish) in butter and lemon sauce served on a hot plate. The curry was not the same as the ones back home as it is just peppery hot rather than spicy.

    Mabuhay Dive Resort restaurant: For convenience

    by Restless-in-kl Written Jan 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We wanted to do 3 dives today and needed a quick, convenient lunch. Decided to have it in the hotel. The restaurant has a lovely ambience located at the beach. Many boat and people activities that you can sit and watch.

    As this resort has a German-Korean run dive center, it's not surprising to find quite an extensive Korean menu here.

    We had chicken teriyaki, sald with garlic toast and 2 drinks for Pesos 420.

    The food was so-so though we should have tried the Korean food as I watched some Korean guests finishing everything.

    At night, this place is quite romantic and is a good spot to watch the sunset with a cold drink.

    Deep Blue Sea Inn & Restauramt: Dive into great food!

    by Restless-in-kl Updated Jan 12, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We thought we should eat near our hotel this time and went to the left side of hotel in Small Lalaguna Beach. Found this cosy little piece that's located on the 1st floor and faces the sea. You'll get a gorgeous view to go with your lunch or starry nights for dinner.

    Service is quick and friendly. Food is quite affordable. For Pesos 450, we had a great pizza, pasta and beers for 2 persons.

    This place is also an inn at very reasonable rates and has its own dive center operated by Action Divers

    Favorite Dish: For the best pizza, come dine here!
