“Great food but takes a while”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

Quite hard to find but great food and be prepared for a very long wait. Amazing pork adobo and fish curry. We waited one hour but some people we met had to wait for three when it got busy so get there early.

Hired a motorbike and found the kiwi place as I am a kiwi. A little off the beaten track. Very friendly.

“By far the best food on Malapascua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

We were very glad we found this place through tripadvisor.
Fresh ingredients, unbeatable price, good portions, authentic cuisine and exceptionally friendly owner.
Food takes a while but definitely worth the wait!

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

Just behind the local school, we came across this place on one of our walks around the island. Gemma is a lovely lively lady. She cooks with heart & passion and her portions are huge. This was the cheapest food we came across during our 12 days on the island and I have to say probably the best. We ate here several times. You do have to wait a long time to get your food as she cooks every thing from order, so if she has a few guests in be prepared to wait a while to be served.The Chicken curry is amazing & the spring rolls are the biggest I've ever seen!! You don' need a starter & a main here. Just a main will do!!
