    Another great place among so many... you can reach it directly from the beach! It's Located in Sabang.

    Nice atmosphere and good service as well.

    This night I had one of the local speciallities: grilled Lapu-Lapu, a local fish... very tasty... sure I recommend.

    Capt' Greggs: Nautical theme

    by Restless-in-kl Written Jan 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is done up in nautical theme befitting its name. Located on the 1st floor of a building, you get a nice sea view from here.

    Service here is not so friendly and waitress does not listen very well. We had to wait for more than 30 minutes for food!

    Favorite Dish: Good breakfast menu. We had lunch consisting of pasta, cheese omelette and 2 drinks for Pesos 335.

    Food quality is reasonable

    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.

    "bar by the South of the Border": ITALIAN!

    by moonlighting Updated Mar 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's not owned by the South of the Border but it's the nearest bar/restaurant outside. First time we visited it, it was owned by an Italian, CLAUDIO. This Claudio man is a great cook! One time, we gave him 1 kilogram of pasta to cook, with 1 small bottle of olive oil and 1 small can of tuna, giz! when the dish arrived, we couldn't believe how he managed to make every strand of pasta so delicious with the small amount of ingredients! Unfortunately, he's not there anymore but the new owner is also Italian who is great at pizzas! The area where the bar is located is away from the crowd and the grilling. Here, you'd hear good music from the hard-to-find cd collection of the bar. And at night, you'd hear the sound of the waves nearby.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood Pasta

    "Outside your cottage": Homecooking

    by moonlighting Written Mar 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not a restaurant, but as I have said some of the owners of the cottages allow cooking outside. So we always do this: buy raw ingredients form the Galera market, cook outside the cottage and eat right in the veranda of our cottage. This way you will create more bonding with your friends and you will also save a lot in your food expenses. When we're tired from swimming we eat out but in the 9 meals we take in our usual 3 days 2 nights stay, we eat out only 3 times, the rest we cook our own meals.

    Favorite Dish: We always grill different variety of fish. We also cook sinigang, pasta, barbeque. With fresh fruits and iced tea!

    lunch! no spoon or fork

    Encenada Beach Resort: Try the Seafood Platter for 2 Pax!

    by Jeannkelly Written Jul 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nothing fancy but since Encenada is a place where it doesnt get crowded very often, dinner should be perfect especially if you're with someone special (the house can make it really romantic for you!)...

    Favorite Dish: By far, the best dish for dinner that we always order everytime we stay in Encenada is the Seafood Platter for two. It includes grilled fish, prawns, mussels, and even king crabs and comes with vegetable salad... Take it with wine and it's a perfect dinner!

    Hemingways Bar & Restaurant: A little bit of Western

    by Restless-in-kl Written Jan 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cosy place with friendly service. Restaurant is by the beach with European ambience. There is a local craft shop next door

    Favorite Dish: Serves mainly Mediterranean/European food like pizza, tapas as well as local dishes as well. I'm used to more spices and so I find food here in Puerto Galera very bland. It's a good thing we brought our own mixed herbs which we used liberally. Should bring chili sauce too.

    For 2 pax, we paid Pesos 650 for beers, daiquiri, pizza and fish dish

    Vesuvio's Pizzeria: Great tasting pizzas

    by CEP1863 Updated Aug 4, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A tiny place with very limited seating, this place is a gem if you are looking for great tasting pizza.The wood fired pizzas done in the traditional italian wood oven makes all the difference. The pizzas were well cooked with a thin base, the edges were nice and crisp and the bottom was not at all soggy. The toppings are fresh and tasty and generous in terms of quantity. The pizzas come in three sizes - small is plenty for one, medium can be shared by two and large which would easily feed three adults. Prices were very reasonable with a medium pizza coming in at around 500PHP. If you cannot decide which to choose then they will make half the pizza with one set of toppings and the other half with a different set. There is a notice on the menu that if you do not enjoy your pizza you will not be charged.

    This is definitely somewhere I would recommend if you fancy a pizza.

    Favorite Dish: Quattro formaggi - the cheese was plentiful and full of flavour.

    Hemmingway's Bistrot: Service with a smile

    by CEP1863 Written Aug 1, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small bistro is situated right on the beachfront and so affords the diner a beautiful view. The menu was extensive and varied but if you are a vegetarian then you are very limited in choice.

    Service was good and the waitresses very very friendly and attentive. I opted for the Pasta Arrabiattia and was given the choice of spaghetti or tagliatelle to have with the sauce. All meals come with soup and a salad as well as coffee and a brandy.

    The pasta was cooked very well but the sauce left much to be desired, it was extremely hot (which I can handle) but there was very little flavour as there was very little in terms of either garlic or tomato. Overall, I found this dish to be somewhat disappointing.

    Overall, this is an expensive place to eat at when you compare prices to other restaurants in PG. I do not consider myself to be a person who will baulk at paying more for a quality meal but on the night,I did not feel that it was really worth the price.

    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! :)

    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.

    Lenly's Bar and Restaurant: To share food

    by cookie-sweetie Written Jun 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We ate at Lenly's for lunch. It's a very good choice because we were there the night before for dinner and the servings were big. Even if you ordered for a rice topping, they will separate the rice from the viand and the viand can be shared among yourselves.
    We also ate at Fernando's upon docking. And it's a huge mistake. Servings were small. The chicken kebab was half-cooked. Although their free soup was unlimited. The food was really not palatable.

    Favorite Dish: chicken/ pork cordon bleu, spaghetti, soup and others.

    Angelyns: No fab food at Angelyns

    Angelyns has a seaview location and we thought it would be nice to have lunch here. Though it's quite affordable, the food is not very good though.

    For Pesos 370m we got fried rice, calamari and chicken fillet for 2 persons

    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!
