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

Been here my last night in the island for dinner and some beer, oh gosh I regret that now. Me and my friend we had a food poison from the food we ate here, chicken gyros, adobo, lumpia and bruschetta. I spent my return days...with diahrea vomit and fever. No words. The chefs need training in health and higiene. In 2020 it’s unbelievable this can happen.More
