We were not impressed. After selecting a great looking red snapper of about 1 kg, we sat down at the table on the beach and waited for it to be grilled. It took ages to arrive and it was good to use the happy hour formula for double delivery of drinks. The snapper turned out to be overcooked which was... More

The bartender at Kalinga was very friendly so we ended up going back that night for the dinner buffet. The buffet was 280 PHP/person and it included crab and a bunch of other seafood, rice, soup, vegetables and a few meat dishes. The all you can eat buffet also included unlimited Iced Tea which was awesome. It was also happy... More

The buffet was a good deal for P280.00. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I just wish that they have more non-seafood choices and that they serve more types of beverages (as they only serve iced tea).

We decided to try their buffet for P280. They usually charge half for the kids but the waiter said no need to pay for the kids (6 & 7yo). They served sea foods like shrimp (small ones) shells, oysters, crabs, etc. We tried them all. I liked the oysters so I ate plenty of them knowing I would get "tummy... More

Although we had (a la carte) dinner at this restaurant last Dec. 2015, the European food we ordered was well prepared and good. Now in April 2016, the same food ordered was a disaster. The cook has no clue on what he or she is serving. What happened here? Beware.

At PhP280.00, you can have a variety of Filipino dishes to choose from with bottomless iced tea. Limited seafood dishes but worth the money you paid for. Alcoholic drinks can also be ordered at the bar.

At only P280/pax, this is truly a great deal for seafood lovers. Their offerings include: steamed crabs and crablets, medium-sized shrimps, clam soup, mussels soup, pork curry, pork stew, creamy soup, gelatin and senorita bananas for dessert. Seafood dinner buffet comes with free bottomless iced tea, but you can also order beer at happy hour rates if you're there from... More
