This restaurant has changed name and owners and is now an Italian, international, and Filipino restaurant. Personally we feel it is great food, service, and reasonable prices. New owners previously lived in Italy.

Friendly staff. The owners are warm and engaging hosts. They have a good food selection considering the location and utilizes fresh ingredients! Pizza is good, but I enjoyed the pasta more. Puttanesca and 'Tuna and zucchini with fresh pesto and home made pasta' are must tries. They serve wine and cheeses as well. The chocolate cake is moist and not... More

We received vouchers from our hotel owner for use in Republika. We decided to use it on our second night and we really enjoyed our dinner. We had sausages and steak. The sausage was good with plenty of mashed potato on the side. The steak was also tasty and tender. They have a lot on their menu that if you... More

This small establishment with tables upstairs and cooking area down congers up quite a decent selection of dishes - Indian and Thai curry, not bad and a variation of fish and chips. We failed to try the pizzas but watched them in the making, dough and all, downstairs on our way out. Looked very good. For a simple lunch in... More

Fully rehabed and under new ownership, the Republika remains the best restaurant in Romblon. Freshly brewed coffee any time of the day, the Republika is where I eat whenever I'm in town. Breakfast and lunch are great, but my personal preference is a "fully loaded" pizza and cheesecake for dinner with friends and family.

Laid back and a great location near the port area. I really enjoyed the stew and freshly cooked vegetables. I went many times and tried almost everything on the menu and a few specials too and loved them all. A nice little reprieve from the local food and a welcome treat to sooth the sometimes missing home & food times... More

This a small food joint tucked on a corner but this small food joint packs a whole lot more. The Front desk lady who never ceases to smile and gentle voice, always eager to help out and take orders. You will always get what you paid for as far as value for money is concerned big servings and always smoking... More
