“Terrible meal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

The outdoor setting on Sabang beach was nice. Unfortunately, we went on Christmas day, so maybe that explains the terrible service. My meal (bbq seafood plate) was inedible, but some of my companions enjoyed the local kinilao (ceviche with ginger) and curry.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Visited this restaurant based on other reviews but found the food to be over priced for what it was and nothing special. The location is good, right on the beach and it seemed quite popular so after the first disappointment we thought it was worth a second try just in case it was the chef's day off or we had made bad choices first time around but unfortunately it was just the same the second time. Not good, not bad just average food at the most expensive prices we found at Puerto Galera.

“5 Star in Sabang, the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

This is the best place for a good meal in Sabang. The staff at Hemingways know what they are doing, thank you for remembering my order from three days before. Little touches that make the difference like a finger bowl when ordering sea food. Food is 5 star all the way. Food is freshly prepared to a very high standard. Splurging comes at a suprisingly affordable price at Hemingways.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I visited Hemingway's a few times, and each time with great pleasure.
Not only for their staff and owner Wolfgang, but also for their food.
Although it can get a bit pricey, you won't get disappointed in what you get on your plate!
