On a clear day, this place is very, very glorious. The wondrous view of the ocean adds to mystique of this restaurant.
The food may look ordinary, but tastes very, very good. Soooo mouthwatering, making you want for more and forget that you need to watch your waist line.
It's true, it doesn't look like a five star restaurant, but the "native atmosphere" makes you feel relaxed...very, very comfortable...either talking to your friends and family or dining alone.
Need I say more? :-)
Oh, like the website says, it does get very noisy during lunch time, but during other parts of the day, it is very, very serene.
It's really best to try it out yourself. I have read some negative comments before eating here, but I...I mean, we...we enjoyed our visit.

Ka Lui's- one of the best restaurant in Palawan, with nice ambience. You need to go bare feet when entering the place, another great experience not all restaurants offer.
The place is somewhat native and cozy, with an ambience of simplicity and back to basic. That could be the reason why people keep on coming back to this place.
The food are not ordinary yet taste very good.
Favorite Dish: Seafoods are the best. They prepared every food in a distinct and not so ordinary way that it feels like you're in a first class hotel.
ambience was good...the service crew were really accomodating...It may not be a fist class resto but it was a fine one...the good thing about this resto is that it's located from the heart of the city...everything goes from there...
Favorite Dish: try their specialty "balinsasayaw rice"partner it with grilled meats , seafood's and other filipino dish...and also a must try of their different variants of shakes and salads especially the "buko pandan"so yummy....
WE WENT TO PALAWAN IN APRIL 2011 AND STAYED AT THE AUDISSIE PENSION HOUSE, WE VISITED FATSO'S CAFE BUT THEY WERE NOT YET OPEN, A FEW MORE WEEKS SAID ELVI THE HEAD CHEF. WE READ THERE MENU AND EVERYTHING LOOKED REALLY GOOD, THE PLACE IS RUN BY TWO AMERICANS, A KANO MAN AND HIS FILIPINO WIFE BOTH RETIRED FROM THE STATES AND REAL NICE FRIENDLY FOLKS. THEY HAD THERE BIG SCREEN PROJECTOR ON SHOWING A MOVIE, WE ASKED THEM IF WE COULD SKYPE AND SAID SURE WHICH WAS VERY COOL OF THEM EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE BUSY, AND EVEN OFFERED US A CUSTOMARY MANGO PAPAYA SHAKE WHICH WAS THE RICHEST THICKEST SHAKE I HAVE EVER TASTED. ALSO SHARED SOME JOLLY TIME POPCORN FROM THE STATES... IT JUST FELT LIKE WE WERE ACTUALLY HOME. SHOWED US THEIR IMPORTED CHEDDAR CHEESE AND PINTO BEANS FOR THERE MEXICAN DISHES AND TASTED THEIR SALSA, WELL, WE ARE FROM LOS ANGELES AND ARE VERY FAMILIAR WITH SALSA AND THIS TASTED REALLY GOOD. SHAME WE COULDN'T HAVE A MEAL BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE WHEN VISITING HERE.

Favorite Dish: Fatso's Cafe has the best shakes and salsa!
I love the view this restaurant have. Located in a mangrove with the clear blue sea as far as your eyes can see.
The food is good too. Price is not that bad.
The staff are ok, but very busy. There were a lot of people when we were there on Dec. 30, 2009.
It seem a bit far from the center of the city which is why you need to hire a local cab called "tricycle" and have it wait for you. But its worth it.... for the super nice view and great food.
I recommend this place to everyone.
Favorite Dish: Dishes are really good.
This place was great, from the moment we walked in the ambience was very upbeat, not a stuffy restaurant. Many tourists, in fact, majority were foreigners.
Just remember to take off your shoes before entering the dining area.
Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed all of the food. Their Green Mango Juice was excellant...But what made the dinner unforgettable was the desert. Our host ordered a coconut filled with fruits and a surprise... I can't tell what that was...you will have to see it for yourself....sorry!
Tom Tom Club definetely has the best steaks in Palawan and also the other dishes are excellent, international & filipino food. Every meal i had there was great. My friend enjoyed very much the Paella. The bar is a favorit meeting place of divers in Puerto Princesa and Tom Tom is always there to put in some nice CD's. He probably has the widest selection of music. They have life music once a week.
Favorite Dish: Pepper Steak with jacked potato!
The place is tastefully designed with a view of verdant gardens and clear waters.
The high-ceilinged tropical gazebo provides diners a well-ventilated and cozy atmosphere as they savor their seafood with wine.
Favorite Dish: Shrimps
