If you are a big group, consider making a reservation if you are planning to dine there, since the restaurant fills up quickly. The staff is really polite and will recommend some foods to try if you wish. The specialty's of the day are worth a shot and also the pizzas are really tasty, so I would recommend to try... More

The terrace has the most amazing view and furniture etc. are simple and elegant. Good quality Italian food. Focaccia is very tasty, loved fruits and vegetables. A possible suggestion would be to try out (create!) some Italian-Philippino fusion dishes. It might be very interesting for the more internationally oriented clients.

Great location, the owner, Italian lady, I presume she was the owner, gave all the information you could possibly need regarding the menu. The terrace was fully occupied so we were seated inside, however a table on the terrace became vacant and we were offered the switch, and we moved there. Really enjoyed the food, pasta for us both.

The place carries a variety of Italian and local foods. I did not try the local food but the others were pretty good. The portion is made for asians and relatively well priced. The view from the outside is enjoyable although not spectacular. There were a ton of flies hanging around the buffet area at breakfast - not sure what... More

I had heard good things about the Amihan and as it was situated right next to my hotel so my wife and I saved a rainy walk and popped in for dinner.

We very much regret that due to the rainy evening you couldn't appreciate the outside terraces of Amihan with tables lit from candles and the starry sky reflected in Malapascua bay. We will improve our service, making it more friendly and warm, but we can't do anything about the weather. During rainy evenings it is normal that the wooden windows... More

Description
On 25 May 2013, we opened the restaurant Amihan, in a panoramic position on top of the hill at the entrance of Tepanee: it offers Italian cuisine, pizza, BBQ (grilling) and much, much more.

From breakfast to dinner, all the ingredients are selected to satisfy the most demanding clients, first and foremost ourselves: if a recipe does not pass our test with flying colours, it will never be served to the customer.

This ensures the quality of our cuisine, while our experience ensures that our food and our drinks are a pleasure to the eye as well as the palate.

The offer is wide and includes pasta, fish, meat, vegetables, fruit, cheese and vegetarian dishes, the inevitable rice and desserts: the important thing for us is to use mostly seasonal ingredients, our little secret for serving genuine flavours.

Come to enjoy the best pizza in Malapascua Island, and our grilled fish, meat and vegetables: you will love it!

As for the cellar, we offer a small selection of the wines available in the Philippines that have seduced us more, not necessarily Italian, and an excellent value for money.

Come and enjoy!

Amihan is open daily from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
