“Cool Ambiance, Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

This place is crowded especially on weekend nights wherein there are groups of people drinking and dining out. Seafoods serve fresh, especially the mudfish/catfish. The price is in the mid range, but worth it. It has a very cool ambiance since it is located just beside the lagoon.

“Yummy hito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Place is not along the road so it's not very easy to find but good thing we did because we were really hungry that time.. Hito is the best, i love the sisig also. We did not like the sinigang bangus belly that much, it's not sour enough to be sinigang. Fresh air, no aircon but it's ok to eat here even lunch time (we actually had our lunch here) because it's open-air. Resto with nature view. Over-all experience was good. :)

“Worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

The place was so quiet and serene. Perfect for family or even barkada get together. You can eat in your own hut or in the main resto where they have a big bar and tv. Your view is the lake where you can also go fishing.
They served the food just right on time and really tasted good. We all loved the kare kare and sinigang.
Everything was reasonably priced and we could come eat here again in our next subic trip.

“A man-made lagoon that shows no magic.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

Magic Lagoon Bar, Grill and Restaurant is accessible from the highway of Subic. We had our lunch here since most of the restaurants inside the Subic area are almost full. At first, when we passed this area the night we arrived in subic freeport zone, it is very much inviting because of the lighting effects. However, during lunch time, it is not that impressive because of the humid weather condition. But the area is clean, they have a fishing area and it is wide to accommodate a number of people in one setting. We ordered Filipino dishes: like inihaw na liempo, buko juice, ginitaang tilapia, tinola and plain rice. The food doesn't taste good. They have also a fishing area where you could do fishing and pay for the total kilograms you caught. I think to be fair with restaurant, this location is best at night since it is designed as such. Maybe we could try it at night next time when we visit Subic and the rest will be history.
