Taraw Restaurant: Good Food, Poor Service
What could be more special than having lunch at a restaurant in the beachfront?
After a tiring tour of the Underground River, we looked forward to our buffet lunch at Taraw Restaurant. There were already so many people in the cottages and buffet table when we arrived, but a place has been reserved for us by our guide. We eagerly lined up for the buffet lunch, then noticed that the line was not moving. Reason? The buffet trays have not been replenished with food! I could see in the faces of the tourists the impatience and anger due to hunger. After a long time of waiting, rice came, then the "adobo", then the grilled fish...the foods came in installment delivery. No one was on top of the situation; I didn't see a manager/supervisor overseeing the buffet service. I learned that this has been a perennial problem with Taraw, but they have the monopoly of buffet lunch service for tourists, perhaps that's why no effort is made to improve their service. (Another restaurant has now been tapped for the buffet lunch of guests of other tour agencies)
Favorite Dish: Their "Adobo" was good enough for me, but I can't say it's a favorite.

food is poor but princely in price. we had our simple breakfast which consists of a cup of garlic, corned beef and fried egg for a ridiculous 95 pesos! go somewhere!
