One of the best places to have a drink and listen to some live rock music, but it shuts about 1am. Friendly staff and a big bar with good food, although the table service can be slow.

Good, reliable place to eat some simple food on the beach while enjoying the sunset. Nice staff, very relaxed, our food (chicken, pork, salads, pizza - we ate here twice :)) was very good. Please note that some of the rates are per 100 gram... so check the size of your chicken!

We came here a few times when we were in Bohol. The best dish we had was the jumbo shrimps with a spicy sauce. I apologize I can't remember the name, but it was amazing (photo attached), simply amazing. It's not a cheap restaurant, but it's reasonable. They have a 2x1 happy hour in beers and Tanduay ice, good ambiance,... More

Had at least one drink here nearly every night of our stay. Happy hour makes the drinks very reasonable and there is a good band that plays every night it seems. Shame they took down the dancing skeletons after Halloween! They were a great addition to an already great place!

Relaxing here was a nice was to spend the afternoon. Food was tasty and plentiful. Service was slowish, but friendly. Drinks kept on coming - cheapish, with specials during the evening. Relaxing and watching the world pass by. Was a nice way to spend a few hours.

Eat here quite often and do enjoy the food but service just gets worse all the time. It is a shame you have to flag down or yell out to a waiter or waitress, they simply walk past you if you dont. Food is good I will admit, great location, good music, just very slow service or lack of service.
