Puerto Princesa City Restaurants

  • Vietnamese Cuisine

    This is an authentic Vietnamese cuisine with homeground ingredients. Fish in a claypot, fish absorbed all the wonderful taste of the sauce.

  • More Than Just A Restaurant

    Badjao Seafood Restaurant is a must-see place in Puerto Princesa, not only for their foods but for the amazing view of the mangroves and the sunset. You have to make reservations if you want to be assured of a seats in their dining hall. It was our last night in Puerto Princesa, so we made sure to have our dinner there, and have ample time for...

  • "Paluto" & Ala Carte

    While in Baker's Hill, I noticed the crowd gathering infront of a building. They were reading the menu and looking at the pictures of foods for "paluto". It was only then that I realized there was a restaurant called Baker's Kitchen. If we only had more time and our own vehicle, we could have perhaps eaten our late lunch there. There were many in...

  • Where Guides Usually Bring Tourists

    Buffet lunch at Taraw Restaurant in Sabang is usually part of the Underground River Package Tour. Since we booked a package tour, we didn't have to pay individually for our lunch. Taraw Restaurant's buffet table is at the middle of the compound surrounded by native-inspired lodging and picnic cottages. It has a beautiful beachfront with white...

  • Craving For Coffee Concoctions & Cakes?

    After our dinner at Badjao Seafront Restaurant, hubby was craving for coffee so we tried Itoy's Coffee Haus which our guide recommended to us when he learned that we were looking for Starbucks. Itoy's Coffee Haus is in the City Proper near the row of restaurants.I noticed that yuppies (young professionals) and friends meet there. I liked iced...

  • Good Alternative For Local Foods

    We couldn't get reservations at Ka Lui so we tried Kinabuchs Grill & Bar which was recommended by some tourists whom we met during our tours. Our Resort van brought us there, but it would be very easy to find even without shuttle service because it is along the main road. Kinabuchs is a big compound where one can choose to eat al fresco or in one...

  • Local Foods In A Beach resort

    Aside from the improved service of hotel staff, one of the reasons why hubby and I developed a liking for Dangkalan Beach Resort is its food and amiable restaurant crew. We had free plated breakfast served by Dangkalan Beach Resort's in-house restaurant, a native-inspired cottage-like resto. We also ate some meals there whenever we were too tired...

  • A Gem in an Out of the Way Place

    There was no AC. The toilet is primitive. The seats were plastic. The utensils were mismatched. But Oh my Goodness! When the food arrived, the place didn't matter. I ordered the chicken hotpot. It was very delicious. The spice mix blended harmoniously without being pretentious. It wasn't over-the top, just right to tickle your palate. Nothing...

  • Drive In Restaurant

    This restaurant opens at 5pm up. More a bar than restaurant. It has a very big projector screen which was showing the World Cup when we were there. Its open air so the mosquitos might be a bother to some. Ok food. Nothing to write home about.

  • Ambiance

    The ambiance here is really great. Service is good. Toilets are clean. The food is good. Not all in their menu is good though. We went twice. The first night was so-so. The second time we went, we hit the jackpot.Order the Sinigang ni Kaka soup and if you order seafood and they ask how you want it cooked, make it grilled. The gata and sizzler...

  • Tara na Kina Buch

    We had our dinner in Kinabuch. We ordered the usual Filipino food like kare-kare, Shrimp Tempura, Sinigang na baboy, and sisig. I suggest you to order a platter of rice instead of one rice per person if you really want to get full. The food is ok and nothing’s special. If you’re lucky the bar sometimes has a live band. After we had dinner, one of...

    Prices are reasonable, excellent service, Very nice and clean restroom, and a UNIQUE way of eating experience. Two thumbs up for KaLui Restaurant!!! First off, we headed to Kalui Restaurant. We ordered:Kalui Special of the day set – four saucers of different kinds of viands. At first we got disappointed thinking we’ll eat a saucer of viand only....

  • Restaurant by the bay

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in the City. A nature-inspired restaurant, this is one of the most frequented restaurant in the City both by locals and foreign guests even if it's located quite far from the City proper.The restaurant offers Filipino and International Cuisines but they are famous for seafood dishes. Me and my friends favorite...

They offer wide variety of food... chicken, pork/beef meat, local cuisine, seafoods...A local delicacy called TAMILOK can be ordered here. Tamilok is wood worm that can be found in rotting mangrove...

  • Go Buffet!

    The place is quite far from the city proper (about 15-20mins away) but I like it's ambiance... The staffs are very accommodating... since we had with us our 2yo son...I guess buffet price is reasonable for PhP 250/person, drinks not included. And there's enough space for parking! Bulalo of course! It's their specialty! And baked tahong... it has...

  • A superb dining experience indeed!

    Great local ambience coupled with good tasting food is what Ka Lui is famed for. A by-word by local tourist guides, this place really lives by the reputation it has.Note: Prior reservation is required, notify your accomodation of your dining plans for them to arrange the reservations for you. Also, you will be requested to take off all sorts of...

    Wow, i cant describe how delicious chicken here is, spicy & sweet taste with a unique sauce that when combined together makes it even more delicious. A must in Palawan.

  • Death by Pistahan sa Oberoi and Pork...

    Their food is to die for... I swear.Our family tried Ka Lui and Badjao Seafront. I think they are overrated. I agree that they have very nice ambiance but their food tastes the usual.Try Oberoi... it's a little bit far from the center (bayan) but it is definitely worth the trip. Come at night. I think the ambiance will be a little better. But what...

  • Vietnamese Noodles

    In Manila to eat a Vietnamese food will cost you much, but here in Puerto Princesa, will only cost you less and more genuine cooking, due to vietnamese refugees here who shared their food delicacies in Palawan. noodles and long bread with pork.

  • Great Dining Experience

    great ambiance, all customers are required to take off their shoes. order specialty for the day, its already good for two, with sizzling squid, grilled fish, buttered prawns, and side dishes for less than P500.

    more
  • Dining amidst the Mangrove trees

    The best thing about the place is its location. It's in the middle of a mangrove forest and you can see one that's really old. The view is great and will be spectacular if you go there during sunset.But the food is pricey and not as good as KaLui's.[Update: Had dinner here again in my last trip because it's a Sunday and Ka Lui is closed. Their menu...

  • Sea Foods!!! Sea Foods!!! Sea Foods!!!

    All of their meals are good but the best for me is the complete platter meal (good for 2). With vegetable, fish lumpia, prawns, and grilled tuna. With free dessert (assorted fruits) Very affordable. It just cost us around P600 for two persons I like the buttered garlic prawns.

  • Most Affordable with Delicious Dishes

    You may get here what you can get from Kalui's for half the price. There are two branches in Puerto Princesa. Just tell the tricycle driver to take you where it is nearest to your place. Ambiance here is nice, too.. Very relaxing.. I love the Tuna Kinilaw. Unlike other restaurants, the sourness of the dish is just right. Also, the dish is very...

  • TONGUE IS TO TASTE

    It's a family owned biz, so to say that they do the cooking and serving. All that's in the menu list... are mouthwatering! Must try the Lengua (Ox Tongue), it's so creamy and yummy and also the squid or shrimp (can barely remember) in szechwan sauce! Smoothies to refresh!

    more
  • Great Place!

    They serve a variety of food but they're widely-known for their seafood. The place is very nice, clean (you have to take your shoes off before going in) and inexpensive. Spent $15 for their set menu of seafood for two and we couldn't even finish it all! Reservations for dinner are a must as this place is very popular with the locals, too. Ask the...

  • Seafoods Galore

    Food tastes great! Nice native ambiance. Price is relatively cheap. We only spent like P300 each for a full meal.Just be sure that you get your reservations ahead of time coz it's always full packed! You can ask your hotel to do that for you. Seafood platter - a little taste of everything

  • Surrounded by Mangroves

    The ambience is perfect and the best time to dine here is lunchtime. Worry free of mosquito bites during this time. Price is very reasonable and affordable! You get to enjoy the scenery and it's not hot because it is surrounded by mangroves. Try their SEAFOOD PLATTER and they also have set meals.

    In Kalui the dishes they serve are really great. For me it gives a dinstinctive taste compare to dishes serve in other restaurant. Ambience is good, I like the supershinny floor. When you go there you have to take off your shoes.It really feels great to dine in Kalui.

  • Dinner at KaLui!

    Don't miss having your dinner at KaLui. Their seafood set meal is really yummy! We spent less than 1k for 4 people. Really worth it :) Crab with vegetables. I don't know what they call it but it was great!

  • Excellant Food

    Very nice, extremely clean, cold cold beer, great food and wonderful hosts/staff. Live music 2-3 times weekly. Just get into a tricycle and ask for Tom Tom's, it is just off Manalo St extension. Great place to meet locals and the expat community.

    Popular with the locals and tourists as well. Have your meal in tiny nipa hut dotting the lush garden. Grilled chicken is their specialty.

  • Must book

    Ka Lui has sort of become a tourist attraction in PP and for good reason. The place is such a feast for the eyes, its amazing. And the food doesnt disappoint. Straight from the airport, we asked the tricy to stop by Ka Lui so we can book a table. And we got to choose where we wanted to sit.Open daily except sunday. 11-2pm for lunch, 6-11pm for...

  • seafood galore

    they should learn that soup is served first and not the last. sweet and sour lapu-lapu, sinigang na tanigue, iced tea

  • a good and long walk

    concept wise, i'd give the owners 4 stars, badjao refers to a tribe in the Philippines who live in boats - much like the floating market in bangkok - but more like a floating village in this case, so building the resto over a body of water seemed logicalthe place is pretty remote and i don't recommend going there on foot - especially at dinnertime...

  • unique dining experience

    mostly seafood and veggies - our meatlover friend wasn't too thrilled with the menurelaxing ambience, unique dishes, good serviceit's a custom to take your shoes off before entering the dining area where you usually sit on the floor, but the place is clean, so we didn't mind i'm not sure if the dish is exotic enough, but we tried the pague (manta...

  • Specialty Coffee

    This is a cofee-shop a-la starbucks or coffee bean in terms of style and ambience. But their coffee flavors are tweaked from the usual espressos and lattes to add in local flavours. Am not into coffee so I can't dwell on the variety and taste.But this is a cozy place with (usually) latin beats for a piped-in music that adds fairly well to its...

    more
  • Chao Long

    The restaurant is generally more like a carinderia or a turo-turo in size, service and ambiance. The type that would have their spoons and forks soaked in a glass of scalding water, a television running a "tele-novela" where crews' attention are to it than to you!Just the same you have got to try this as the food is not found in other...

  • Japanese Food and More!

    Quiet unperturbed elegance actually exists in Puerto Princesa City c/o this place. This is that spacious restaurant that greets your eyes upon entry into the Hotel Fleuris compound since it is that corner (on ground floor) nearest the street.Subdued lighting, minimalist decor, friendly staff, all the works! While this is a great place to savour...
