Great news for all visitors to Padre Burgos - two months after closing, Alma & Jerry have opened a newly constructed restaurant immediately next door to the closed Moose & Squirrel...name changed to Alma & Jerry's Kitchen. Food the same standard as before, although menu changed a little.

Sad situation - the demise of Moose & Squirrel. We have been eating in Moose & Squirrel at least four times a week for the last few months while staying in Kuting Reef. The food was always good; mainly local dishes prepared to foreign expectations - meat served without skin/grizzle. We had sensed that Alma & Jerry were under some... More

Ok food. Not a huge selection but nice and fresh. They'll cook it in front of you while you wait. The food is good authentic local food and priced accordingly The staff are very friendly and accommodating. All in all a much better eating experience than eating at one of the overpriced the near by Resorts. If your in the... More

A few people in Padre Burgos told us about the place, so off we drove looking for it. had a hard time finding it, but it was right in front of the whole time. No one was in the restaurant and we were a little skeptical, but were we ever pleased. The food quality, quantity, taste and service was outstanding... More

I have eaten here many times over the years and I can recommend this food and service. It's a bit of a" mama's kitchen " in that the food is fresh and limited but that is what makes it so good. Drinks are limited to beer (San Miguel) and juices etc The food is traditional philippine food cooked by Alma... More

Food is awesome for the price. The owner will pick fresh coconut just to make a coconut shake for you. Likewise, she's really nice.

The staff at Moose and Squirrel was so absolutely lovely that I can not even begin to explain the pleasure I had eating at this restaurant. Everyone here went out of their way to make our meals as enjoyable as possible. It was amazing. We wanted coconut shakes and in the rain one of the employees climbed a coconut palm... More

Small restaurant adjacent to Sugod Bay Dive run by a husband and wife team - Alma being the chef, and Jerry the front man/waiter. Their clients appear to be mainly foreigners visiting Padre Burgos for recreational diving. The fried shrimp, grilled squid, singigang pork are amazing. Being a small restaurant, not all the dishes are available - we got into... More

I cant say emough good about it. Everything we ate was fresh amd tasty and inexpensive. The restaurant only opens at 4:30. It is near the Sogod beach resort and you have to look carefully for the sign, a native hut with bamboo furniture overlooking the ocean. The service is friendly and sincere and all food is cooked as you... More

We spent a week scuba diving at Peter's Dive Resort and had dinner here every night. It was that good!. It was recommended by a local (Peter's was full and had no lodging; they arranged for us to stay in a private house for a few days). After a full day of diving, we always looked forward to dinner.
