One of the best views on subic bay. Just awesome sunsets.... really worth the effort to visit. Bur the staff is undermanned and under trained. The food is ok menu has never changed in all the years that I have been going.... Many things could be improved with staffing... Overall the short comings are outweighed by the shear beauty of the locati

Stayed at first floor seafront rooms (rooms 17-20). The hotel was kind enough to even setup a whiteboard for us in our al fresco work area right in front of our rooms. The rooms are spacious & clean. Lots of tabletop space. There's a TV, safe, mini-ref, alcohol dispenser, airconditioning, ceiling fan. The bathroom has an overhead rainfall shower and handheld option, toilet has bidet. The restaurant is open air, the servings are hearty. Vasco's is also the perfect spot to catch your Bay Marine Subic boat for a sunset cruise after a day of brainstorming.

Vasco's is a quaint, rambling establishment with seating for approximately 50 diners. The ambiance is nice, with the main seating area overlooking Subic Bay. The views are extraordinary. We were a party of four on our first visit. We were seated promptly and ordered Lemon Squash and Sprite. When the drinks arrived we indicated we were ready to order our meal. The waitress seemed a bit hesitant, like she wasn't prepared. We ordered two burgers, a taco, and a spicy curry. After 25 minutes we were starting to get anxious about not having received our food yet. It did finally arrive, with no comment from the waitress. While eating I attempted to get the waitresses attention for another Lemon Squash, but she wasn't reading her guests and never looked at me. Several times she passed our table without inquiring if we were happy with the food or if we needed anything. Note: this is quite typical for the Philippines. The food was satisfactory. Their tacos are huge and the curry was quite good. While there, check out the many artifacts from the nautical adventures of the owner. If you hadn't caught it, Vasco's is named after the Portugese explorer Vasco da Gama.

We ate there last Friday. We met and had an interesting running conversation with Brian Homan, the Australian diver and owner of Vasco's. Brian is the pioneer of underwater archaeology in the Philippines. According to him, he also founded the first dive shop in the country (in Puerto Galera, Mindoro island). The restaurant is full of nautical and diving memorabilia. Plus it has a great view of Subic Bay. It's a very nice place to spend a long leisurely meal over. We ordered Thai Combination Chicken and Curry Chicken. Their prices were reasonable and the service was good.Phreatic and other types of volcanic eruption. We would go back.

Mainly local food and variation and standard does fluctuate a bit. The view and location is stunning. Right by the sea in fact on a wooden pier. Natural breeze. Great to watch sunrise/sunset. Service was quick and efficient but it was an off-peak lunchtime!

Apparently the husband of the owner, shouted homophobic slurs and swear words at one of the customers and kicked him out because of his sexuality. It was pretty pathetic to say the least. Never going back there again.

Back to Vasco's seafront bar and grill for an early lunch / late breakfast. It's been two years since I was last here, I hope the extra hot spicy chicken wings are as good as I remember! Plus some San Mig Light to wash down the heat! 😎😜🍻🍗🍻 Good food, reasonably priced, service lacking compared to others (service charge - no tips - so no need for any effort???) Will come again.

Vasco's Has a nice outside deck. Sometimes hot out there if there is no breeze. Food is 3 star. The museum is free and interesting.Owned by an Australian. Business guys often gather there in the afternoon.
