Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of my favourite parts about visiting Puerto Galera, was dining in Out of the Blue's in-house restaurant, The Verandah! With a menu that showcases a great variety of Asian & Western dishes, I felt like there was something to suit every craving. In our...short stay, the staff went above and beyond to show us the best the island has to offer. For lunch (upon our special request to taste local delicacies), we were served an amazing spread of prawns, barbeque chicken and pork belly. (It looked & tasted so good, that I didn't even get to take a proper photo!!) And for dinner, we decided to go with a classic Pizza, followed by the fabulous & fiery Banana Flambé - definitely a highlight! Not only was it delicious, but amazing to see lit right before your eyes! With amazing flavours, great service & an amazing view - this place needs to be on your list of places to go in Puerto Galera! I will be back!!More

My last night in Puerto Galera, finally I tried this restaurant which is next to the dive shop I go to (action divers - check out my review) I was surprised to see that I was the only customer tonight! I sat in the balcony...facing the pool looking out to the sea. It is very quiet here. The restaurant to very nicely decorated. Although I read that a lot of people liked the port tenderloin here, I felt like Filipino dish so I ordered sizzling sisig and a mango shake. I always like a dish comes with a raw egg on top. (You mix the egg on the sizzling cast iron plate to mix the egg in the dish. ) it was so delicious! By the way this restaurant takes credit card. Since i am on my last day here and I am running out of cash, this is definitely a plus!More

We were staying in the resort next door for a few days, the La Laguna Villas, which is also great. We needed a change of venues so we went to the restaurant Verandah for dinner. When we got there, only two other guests were there,...which after the experience we don’t understand at all. It is low season right now, but the place should have been packed. I had the pork tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection. Pink on the inside and just the right amount of crisp on the outside. So tender. I truly recommend this restaurant. Go there and try it yourself it is worth it. Easy accessible from the beach. And while you wait for your food, try looking at the room, the furniture and especially the ceiling, I have never seen wood put to good use in such a beautiful way, and I’m not an architect or a designer. Go.More

We had an evening meal and breakfast. The pork tenderloin was the best I have ever had and the seafood pizza was 10 out of 10. They make their own pizza dough from the right Italian flour we were told. Excellent cooked breakfast too.

Great dinner, Rendo was lovely. We went back because the food was so good the first time. The restaurant is up quite a few stairs but the view was worth it. We didn’t stay at the hotel. The chicken wings were lovely as was the...lumpia. There are quite a few options on the menu. We had ribs, bolognaise, chilli chicken, creamy dory. I would highly recommend supporting a fantastic local restaurant.More

None had anything to complain about (and we are a group of hard to please 50-something Caucasian men :-) Everything was freshly prepared - quality ingredients...and served with a smile.

Worth the short walk from sebang if you want a relaxing spot to look down upon the ocean with a lovely cool breeze and very attentive wait staff. It’s also a little bit fancy with something for everyone.
