It has some nice views of the sea and the food was great but it was really expensive to dine here. The restaurant interiors and setting could use some more improvement.

The first time I was here was already two decades ago. Much has changed and so were the price of food. It has a view of some of the Hundred Islands hence, it is popular. We ordered lobster, the grilled mixed seafood and meat, Bulalo and Calamares. The lobster meat was tough and they only have two ways to cook... More

Aside from the cheap or affordable price of room accommodations, the establishment offers good food at a reasonable price. Located near the boat rides going to the 100 islands

Not an abundance of choices in area. We went for supper after the 100 islands tour. Our combined family of 15 enjoyed a pleasant meal here. Time for food was about 40 mins which wasn't bad for such a big order. Large seafood selection as you would expect. We were seated outside so it was hot. Price was about $10... More

This good location to access the 100 islands national park with good Restuarent on the water front. The service is great and the decor RTC is excellent. I loved sitting in the portion of the Restuarent protruding into the sea with the sea shell decoration singing in the breeze as I eat my meal.

Thank Hig11
