Place was empty for lunch and we should have taken that as a warning. Took forever to serve, one meal at a a time. Food was average and not in relation to the price. Tamarind's just 100 metres away blows this place away as do others. Pity, the location is great and given a hospitality professional this place has the... More

As a regular visitor of Hemingway's for over 5 years, we learned that Wolly is no longer running the place. We decided to visit again and see how the new owner operates. We arrived Dec. 30, at 7.30pm in a almost empty place. After several complaints about the delay, our 4 meals arrived at 8.30 pm. All the time the... More

Hemingway's staff are very hospitable, polite and very well trained. We were happy to be served with cheerful and attentive staff. They speak English well and we had no problems ordering or billing out. The food was just lovely. Steak and burgers cooked to our liking, and not just well-done. We had ours rare and medium rare and cooked to... More

Went to HB with now new owner from Austria. Unfortunately I don't believe he listen to his staff. HB draw was it's selection of European wheat and pilsner beer. And the large selection of Bavarian cuisine. Now it's more Local and no beer other than San Miguel. Food was OK but not what It used to be. Fortunately he has... More

Good Restaurant overlooking Sabang Beach. Our party all enjoyed their meals. The service was very good with an extremely funny and accommodating waitress.Despite being primarily a Steak restaurant I elected to have a Thai Green Chicken Curry was was very good but the sauce was rather too thick and could have been more runny . All in all could recommend... More

The location is brilliant, just at the beach, very comfortable clean and nice decorated dinig area, top friendly service and a broad distinctive selection of food on the menue. The meat, it's preparation and consistency is absolute perfect. To all menues they serve a delicious soup, salad, side dishes and dessert. Also the wine (even the open in the carafe)... More

If you want a good steak and lobster experience this is definitely the top choice for Puerto Galera. Located at the end of Sabang beach right by the water it offers a nice selection of meat and seafood. It is a bit pricey for the area but it is because of the quality you get. Its a nice treat if...

Good place for a dinner especially if you are tired of local food, here you can find some Bavarian dishes and German beer. Overal menu is quite large and suites all tastes, though I would add some more fish and seafood dishes... Wine list is also very good. But the best thing we liked here were the cocktails, Daiquiri particularly.... More
