For the first time, I enjoyed seafood! I'm not very much of a seafood lover, but I really loved the food here. And the place is also nice and artsy. Great for picture taking. PS. They have an amazing rest room!

Restaurant is highly recommended to all. The excellent dishes represent true Palawan cuisine. It will help if travellers will call the restaurant for reservations because the place can get packed.

Eaten here on several occasions and really enjoyed the experience. Nice touch to leave your shoes at the door with a nice variety of comfort sitting. Fresh food well cooked. Definitely recommend Kalui when in Puerto.

We spent 4 days in Puerto Princesa and tried almost everything and everyone on the food stage, and I must stay, the only place we felt like revisiting over and over again whenever we tired of trying new places, was Ka Lui. Reservations are a must, we emailed them a couple of times and they answered quickly, in case you... More

People in town and at other parts of the island said to visit this restaurant. You immediately walk into an atmosphere. And, since the restaurant is quite long, there's a lot of atmosphere! The service was wonderful. Even when some customers that came in later (next table) were annoying, the waiter kept a neutral look and helped them as much... More

This place is simply amazing. Food is lovingly cooked, ambiance is top of the league, service amazing and the owner tops it all. A trip go Puerto Princessa would be incomplete without eating here.
