kalui: tourist spot indeed
well, the exotic decor is tasty and there is that special tropical atmosphere a tourism professional will qualifies as " tropic romantic"...back home you will remember the decor and the quality of the light . about the food its not far from transparent . transparent is also the word for your statue versus the staff. price are reasonable ( at least for a swiss guy..)and we will definitely recommend it if you don't look for anything special about the culinary experienceso 5 star for the decor 2.5 star for the food
Baker's Hill: Walk in the Park
One of the unique restaurants in Puerto Princesa. Offers sumptuous bread and pastries. They also have a resto where you can eat "true" food. The bakery also displays its mini park with different animals, plants, cartoon characters, as well as playing ground for the kids. Best to hire a van when you go here coz jeeps are rare in the area.
Ka Lui: A Cozy Ambiance
Probably the most popular and most visited restaurant in Puerto Princessa. Best if you have reservations. Located just minutes away from the city proper. Cozy ambiance. Need to take off your shoes/slippers. Artworks are also displayed. Food is good but not that extraordinary.
seafoods pa din..hehe
Squidos: Save your money
This is the most popular restaurant in El Nido, and the owner knows it. Shestopped caring about service and quality apparently because she knows people will come regaurdless. I ordered a cesar slad with avocado. I ordered this because I have not had an avocado in almost a year and when I saw it on the menu I got excited. For 120 pesos I expected far more than what came out. It was tiny saucer, no bigger than the one you put your coffee cup on, with some lots of sour dressing, making the lettuce soggy, and some cheese grated on top. No avocado. Apparently there was no more left in the kitchen. I wish she had told me that. I was a waitress for 5 years, I don't ever send dishes back, but come on, it was such a ridculous portion and completely lacking the one thing that I wanted. Plus the woman was rude as hell. I kindly asked her to atleast add more lettuce so that it could be worth 120...
Kinabuchs Grill & Bar: Tamilok Challenge
If you want adventure and challenge go to Kinabuchs Grill and Bar. THey offer meals and alcoholic drinks. Nice place. They offer tamilok for P115 per order. Tamilok is also known as wood worm.If you want to chill out and have fun you need to go to Kinabuchs.
Ka Lui: Best Place to Hang out in Puerto
You should never get out of Puerto Princessa without dropping by Ka Lui. Food is great and the ambience is excellent. Be warned though, you must be ready to take off your sandals as everybody in the resto walks around barefoot. The entire place is decorated in ethnic designs, different tables offer you different sitting arrangements. Be ready to sit on the bamboo floors with pillows to make you more comfortable. We stayed in Palawan for 3 nights and we ate at Ka Lui, twice! That says a lot and to think... we also came back to our hotel full on both occasions.
Try the Ka Lui Set menus. It Comes with your choice of seafood, uniquely cooked vegestable, soup and dessert. Yummy for only 150 Pesos, less than US$5. Great bargain. Also try their to die for Sinigang Seafood. Its the best one I've ever tasted in my life. I think they made it with fresh coconut juice and tamarind.
Ka Lui: Great place to eat
The first thing that struck me was that you have to take off your shoes at the entrace to the restaurant. From the gate entrance, there is a little path that leads you past a small garden before you reach the restaurant proper. You take off your shoes there and you will be guided to a table. They have quite a variety of seating arrangements. You can opt for the normal chair and table; or you can sit on the floor Japanese style; and they have areas where you can have your group to yourselves.The food is nice. I ordered the standard and supposedly to be the best set lunch. There was a soup, then seaweeds (this is nice !) then 2 lovely prawns, some vege and rice together with a coconut. All for Peso 500.
Kahlui: Beautiful setting and ambiance
When you 1st see the restaurant you will be tempted to get inside because of its distinct style. The whole structure is made of kawayan. You will be asked to remove your shoe or sandals before you step inside. You may choose to sit in a conventional wooden chair or at the floor with huge pillows. The food is mostly seafood and grilled. The price is very economical. The menu is changed everyday and the caption for every menu has a distinct touch (watch for the wordings).
Tribu Cafe at Puerto Pension: Tribu Cafe at Puerto Pension
Serves continenal breakfast (comes with the rooms usually) - either at their Garden Cafe, at the veranda outside your room or at their restaurant at the 3rd floor overlooking the Wharf.
They have this upgrade promotion - eat all you can eggs (cooked in any way you want)

Don't order their grilled tuna meal - my mum had a bum tummy after. :(Athough ambiance of the restaurant was very cosy, some tables have a hammock installed.
I ordered grilled spareribs with java rice - about P90Mango Shake - about P40 i think
