The restaurant is inside the Vitton and Woodland Beach Resort. Their menu is quite extensive and meals are inexpensive. Usual price is P240.00 with servings good for two. Their Pansit Bihon was actually good for 3-4 people. Food was ordinary but because it wasn't costly, we took almost all our meals here. They cook upon order, so serving time takes longer. Value for money.
Semi outdoor restaurant overlooking the beach, very nice food, and Juliet, the owner, is very friendly and nice. Have a dinner here, with candle light dinner on the terrace is awesome.
Favorite Dish: Anything they serve is GOOOOOD!! Very fresh seafood, well-cook, not so many sauce, western type of food. Don't forget to drink their Margarita.
There are many stalls selling ready cooked local dishes near the market center, but I tend to avoid food that are cooked and exposed for more than 2 hours. I prefer hot or freshly cooked dishes as I do not want to be ill while travelling.
Marilyn of Razo Inn will cook to your liking to the best of her ability, and provide good home cooked Philippino food, like nangka in coconut milk.
There is a "edible" pizza outlet near crossed road at the town center near Baby & Andrew homestay. Beer is available at Baby & Andrew at P25.
Better western meals are available at Vitton Resort if you are not adventurous.
La Meza Taza is unquestionably the finest restaurant in Donsol. Located adjacent to the Visitor Information Center, the menu-less restaurant features a variety of delicious fresh seafood selections. The owner/waitress/some-time cook buys the seafood each morning at the Donsol market, so the selections are forever changing. In addition to lacking a menu, the restaurant also lacks set opening hours. As a result, if you plan to eat dinner, you should be sure to check with the owner and fix a time so as to avoid disappointment. When available, the grilled whitefish (P200) and spicy crab (P55) are two of the house specialties and not to be missed.
This is a resto/carinderia type of place with very nice people. We stayed at vitton and checked the menu and found the usual resort meals (at resort prices), so I opted to look for other places to eat that would fit our budget (and hell, we travelled many hours to bicol and eat the same food we can get in manila? no thanks!) . Its just a 3-4 min walk from vitton and here you'll meet Boy as he wanted to be called and you can ask for the local menu's like the kakanin, pating (shark) sa gata, pancit bato and igado. Meals are just 30php.
It has flexible schedules, they usually open at 9am but I asked Boy if he could serve breakfast for us at 645 am before the whale watching and so he did with a smile! =) That's Filipino hospitality! They can also close at very late hours for the customers since they have a billard table, videoke and beer at 22php for the pale pilsen.
It is also a great venue to talk to the BIO officers since some of them eats here. =)
Usually the whaleshark watching is from 7am to 12nn, with this you'll have a rumbling stomach in between. I suggest you bring food on the boat. In our case, i woke up at around 6ish, went to the school nearby casa bianca and bought small shrimps and crabs from the catch during the evening. Its really cheap compared to the local market! Just steam it with a little salt and sprite and viola! Great food and the cost of about 50 pesos there is enough to share it with the people you'll be with in the boat!
