We came for lunch without a reservation on a friday. We expected a long queue but luckily we were there a little early (11:20 am). To get seated at the couch or at the other well decorated areas you need a reservation so we were seated at the corner which wasn't too bad at all. The overall ambience of the... More

This restaurant is so nice and the food is very good! Nothing about the ambiance and the food is authentic filipino as it clearly attracts tourists. It is nevertheless a very nice place to eat. I would definitely recommend this place!

I made a reservation on my last night in Puerto Princesa to cap off my first solo adventure. As a solo traveler, I ordered the plated meal just to be practical with the price and serving size. Food was tasty and I like the cleanliness of the place. Great ambience because it reminds me of a native home plus friendly... More

Though reservation is really a must on this restaurant we were lucky enough to get to have a seat even through the wave of people coming without any. We dined on dinner and lunch time and it will indeed be packed, come by early so they can accommodate you first among other walk ins. Their seafood is really great! We... More

We are lucky to get a table as walked in guests, as there are always full with reservations guestlists for dinner. This place is beautifully decorated with local paintings and arts. Food is delicious we tried the fish steak, tempura, prawns , sisig and the sashimi. Fresh and delicious at very reasonable price. Dont forget to drink the fresh coconut... More

I love this place of so many reasons. A Philippine native look, made of wood & bamboo. At the back there are some handicrafts & artworks displayed on the wall. Once you enter this restaurant staff will assist you to put your shoes in your own group cabinets, go in barefooted then guide you to your table. As you go... More

The first time I went to Kalui was so many years ago and I don't remember making a reservation. However, many years have passed and they are now one of the most popular restaurants to go to. My friend and I almost didn't make it since we didn't have reservations, thankfully, there was a couple who didn't want to eat... More

Our tricycle driver dropped us of at Kalui's at around 7pm, he told us that we need to wait, i... More

I was told this was the best restaurant in Puerto Princessa so we had to try. Our hotel phoned to book a reservation for us but when we appeared, they claimed not to have received our booking. Happily they gave us a table almost immediately. The seafood was so fresh. Servers are very efficient and are trained to deal efficiently... More

A large group was really hard to manage but the restaurant had a set meal good for 3-4 persons that we just got 8 sets to feed the hungry travelers. The presentation of the food was also so unique that we enjoyed our dinner there. Tourists visit this restaurant because of its uniqueness. We had to remove our foot wear... More
