This restaurant definitely serves fantastic seafood. We loved it.

Many celebrities seem to share this opinion (see the pictures on display).

For a great atmosphere, try the roof-top deck.

And the prices are most descent, to say the least.

Harbor View is a restaurant located right at the port and a part of the premises is on a bridge right on top of the water. The restaurant is decorated with hanging lights which gives the place a magical feel. The staff were friendly. But the waiters were not updated with the menu that was available and they had to come back every now and then to make us change our orders. The original wait staff didn't come back after one of our orders were not available anymore. However the next wait staff that handled our table with patience and style, aside from his being friendly which we appreciated. The food was fresh and delicious. The kare-kare was very nutty and tasty (thumbs up). Overall we had a great time in the restaurant.

Food was Ok and within the budget. Staff was fairly attentive. However, a bit smelly perhaps due to smokers around or could be some other sources of unpleasant smell nearby. The waiters here just carry the glasses of water with their hands, not on a tray as what I am used to see. I left a small tip because one of the waiters helped take our picture.

We stayed at the Manila hotel around the corner from the Harbor View and went there on our last night in Manila. Very attentive staff serving good seafood fare at a very reasonable price. The only issue with the outdoor setting is the amount of people smoking (as per everywhere else in the Philippines) - if only a restaurant could put a fish tank in the corner for all the filthy smokers then this place would be perfect!

Don't understand the "expensive" comments - very cheap food. For three people we payed a total of $70 - including tip. We each had two drinks, two entrees, and a desert and paid less than $25. Other than that, very friendly staff, good food, good service, charming location. Definitely recommend this restaurant
