Nice place with bean bags on the beach for relaxing. Good food to much on while you enjoy one of the best happy hours on the island. Fast and friendly service too. A "must-try" spot to visit as you spend time on the island.

Best food on the island. At first sight it seems a bit expensive, but that is only until you a) see the portion sizes and b) taste the food. This place is under Swiss/German management and they certainly did bring their eye for detail and high standards. Beautiful food, beautiful place, very atmospheric in the evenings.

We tried the restaurant and were blown away, was that good we had desert. We even returned for breakfast the next morning and we weren't even guests at the resort. Very good.

Beautiful setting, chilled out, nice music.... good food and drinks. Good location too. Seems the trendy place to lounge around in Malapascua.

We visited for lunch and happy hour. The lunch food wasn't particularly great as the various sauces, pesto and mayo were a bit overpowering. However the upstairs restaurant itself was a great spot; very bright and fresh with white table clothes and breezy sea views. Service isn't spectacular but it is friendly.
We turned for happy hour and had great calamari; so maybe some dishes here are better than others. Happy hour is from 4pm to 6pm and menu is varied and cocktails are strong. You can sit out in bean bags in beach and watch sun go down in a pretty spot. However it gets very busy here and so come for 4pm if you want a guaranteed chair! Happy hour attracts a mix of couples and party go-ers so if you want a quieter spot, try Craics.
