We stopped over for lunch as recommended by other people in El Nido where we came from , a 5 hour drive to the airport at Puerto Princesa. What a gem to find a beautiful restaurant with different theme for every area with an artist decor and Zen gardens. The food is awesome with a healthy menu to boot for... More

This is an excellent restaurant if you love seafood! There are no red meat options whatsoever. The food is fantastic and the service was great. The restaurant has a home feel to it where you take your shoes off like being at homes. You sit on the floor with pillows or on a low bench. Very casual dining. Highly recommend... More

This was my third time to visit Puerto Prinsesa and my second time to eat at Kalui. If you eat there in group of say three people, order the set meal and then just add extra dish. Everything they served were fresh and nice representation of the dishes. They gave us complimentary dessert of fresh cut up fruits served in... More

In some ways this is a good experience - it's a busy restaurant with a great atmosphere and you feel like you are visiting a bit of an institution. Some dishes were really nice - in particular all of the sashimi and ceviche was super fresh and delicious - also stand out and something unusual to try was the fish... More

My family of 10 came here for lunch last Jan 4th which was the day Kalui just opened after their well deserved Christmas Holiday break. Whenever my family and I visit a new city/country, we make sure to look at Tripadvisor to determine what the best restaurant that city has to offer. Kalui was on the top of the list.... More

Awesome food and service. They make you remove your shoes. Lots extras came with the meal. Before dinner a fish ginger soup was brought out that I could have eaten/drank several cups. After our fish dinner a platter of fruit was served. We had mango shakes which we loved. I can see why it is rated so high on TA.

Our hotel recommended this place to us and even managed to get us a reservation at the last minute. Reservation is essential which surprised us! We waited to be seated and took in all the beautiful design at the entrance. Shoes left at the door. Very helpful and efficient staff. Small and simple menu with incredible options. A pescatarian's delight!... More
