They offer a superb dining experience on the island. Tables are well set, meals are freshly prepared. and on top of that, the friendliest and coolest crew ever! But what keeps me coming back is the cheeseburger! Just so deliciously made. Oh! and don't forget...to try their cocktails! ;)More

Coming here for lunch on most days, we were super impressed by what was served. The menu was large enough to offer a variety of tates and prepared excellently. Authentic Thai, Filipino and Western flavours served with a smile. All the staff were super friendly....Definitely try their yellow curry which was fantastic and also the Filipino tapas which gives you a tatse of many local dishes. Have a espresson and a flan on the beach after your meal whilst looking out at the sea. Drinks here for sunset were also great and not to be missed!More

The popular Ocean Vida is a popular restaurant at Bounty Beach with a wide selection of meals at the menu, and a large dining area on two floors. Not fine dining, but a solid dining experience.

Ilyn Banlasang (correct me if I'm wrong with the name) and her team handled us well even though we aren't able to check in on their resort still they did something that exceeded our expectations. Props to them and to the resort itself. By the...way this happened when malapascua was reannounced open to tourism back again.More

When our party of 6 arrived at 6pm restaurant was full of customers lounging in bean bags on the beach. Beautiful ambiance; LED Candles; sea breeze; sunset views; white sand under our feet. We felt lucky to get a nice table overlooking the beach for...6. Drinks arrived. A "pineapple" concoction that was essentially "Tang" with little or no alcohol. I had a glass of red wine which was just fine.Two people in our party ordered the "seafood" pasta. To me the name "Seafood" implies there would be some kind of seafood in the dish. Unfortunately there was NONE. Between the two orders there was not one shrimp, not one clam, not one mussel, not one calamari, not one piece of fish. Simply put absolutely ZERO seafood. We asked the waitstaff if there wasn't a mistake. Visibly embarrassed they explained that the "seafood" was ground or chopped and mixed into the sauce? The sauce by the way was essentially tomato paste (not sauce) mixed with undercooked pasta. I ordered the seafood platter. There were no discernible shrimp clams or scallops. There were bits of fish and calamari crispy crispy fried. The Chicken adobo was fine. My son had the cheeseburger. Essentially a meatloaf sandwich. Congrats on your success, however, please sit down and order some of your own food. Particularly the "seafood" pasta. Eat it. And then ask yourselves is this something you are proud to be serving? If the answer is no then change it or take it off the menu.More
