Burned my throat with the Bicol express but who cares?!!! Authentic Bicolano and Filipino food. Even the ordinary afritada was excellent. Must-have in Legazpi.

We got to the place before noon, it was already loaded. It was because the Buffet Lunch is very Good. The choice of food is limited to local dishes but they made sure you'll be satisfied with the taste. Delicacies to end your meal will...make your day.More

Honestly, we chose this restaurant due to the online reviews. At first glance, their buffet has limited choices. I thought their food taste good because I was really starving but when I was about to heartily devour the food on my plate, I saw A...BIG RAT on the ceiling. That sight made me lose my appetite knowing how dirty their place is. I thought it was an isolated case but to our surprise, we saw mice crawling around. Stay away from this restaurant. It’s very unhygienic. I really hope that the Health and Sanitary department of Legazpi City, Albay will inspect this restaurant for further fumigation and pest-control measures. Not good for Legazpi tourism!More

This treat came on the last day of our trip. I am glad we saved the best for last. All the dishes taste fresh and tasty. Every spoonful reminded me of my mom’s home cooking. The price is very affordable. The place is clean and...well kept.More

Only a few dishes offered but all were good. Not bad for a 299nett which includes drinks and dessert already. Staffs were attentive.. cozy and very cold place since all 6 A/C units were turned on👍

Unless you have 25 to 40 mins of time to spare travelling to the towns of Camalig and Guinobatan, Waways has the best deeply-rooted local dish in the city that is inexpensive and straightforward. there is nothing fancy about the place, but the taste is...definitely a 5 star to me. They serve real bicol express, which is chili vegetable with almost no pork in it. just plain bicolano chili. The Bopis is great and so as the crispy shrimps. Two thumbs up for waways.More

If you have kids and shun the big crowds and not very adventurous in terms of restaurant choices, this is a safe choice. Buffet is a bit more expensive compared to other local choices. Food choices are passable and so is quality. My kids had...a nice after lunch rest in this place before hitting the lava ATV trails.More

We had our lunch in the place and it was nice. The food like their sotanghon, fried shrimps, Kare kare, pinangat, etc are delicious. Their drinks and dessert are varied. They also served coffee or tea for the guest. The place is clean and parking...is available. I highly recommend this restaurant especially for first timer in Legazpi, Albay.More

This place is well-known in Legazpi, it is along the main road and just a few minuted from city center. Food choices were mostly local dishes and the place can accommodate big groups. Taste is mixed bag depending on the dish but overall it is...well worth the price.More

I was invited to eat here for lunch buffet. They offer Bicolano cuisine and other Filipino food. Price is reasonable considering it is a buffet.

The only buffet restaurant I know in Bicol. Value for money as the foods are delicious and not that pricey fora buffet. We will surely dine again.

Reasonably priced buffet, ideal location and a variety of food choices, especially Filipino foods and the "make your own" halo-halo....I love the Bicol favorites like Bicol Express and pinangat plus the seafoods.....
