We visited after seeing good reviews about the bbq night. We arrived and sat on a veranda swamped with mosquitos and patiently waited for bbq choices. There were no choices we were told bbq is the order. Our plays arrived with deep fried chilli pepper,...veg spring roll, a bit of fatty pork belly clearly not bbq'd and a few other indescribable bits. It was barely edible and we all left almost all of it. Never again!! It was absolutely awful and more expensive than much better placesMore

This place has reopened in January 2024, under new management, after 1 month being closed. Having a dive center here in Dauin, I always bring all my guests here for breakfast, lunches and dinners because we always have a great meal and great times with...the people there. I come there often just by myself for a cold one from time to time. It has a home base atmosphere with friendly chats with the girls there. It now have a completely new menu with even MORE great meals!! You to should come and enjoy this place.More

We come to Dauin dive cafe quite often during our two months stay at the Philippines. Rowella is a great hostess (owner), and does an amazing job of selecting high quality ingredients which she uses in her recipes. Rowella and her staff are extremely enjoyable...to be around and make every effort to ensure your needs are met. The Cafe frequently offers specials. One of our favorites was Friday night barbecue. We definitely would eat there againMore

My wife and I stayed in Dauin 2 months. We ate here many times. Rowella sources really good meat. The pork tenderloin was my favorite. We ate just about everything on the menu and liked them all. They have specials where they do BBQ ,...roast beef and roast pork that are all great. The staff have a devoted local customer base and they call them all by name, have conversations etc and just generally make everyone feel very welcome. Highly recommend.More

Not the first time I've been to Dauin, and this is not the first review I've done on the Dauin Dive Cafe. Happily, here I am again because this place still has THE BEST chilli con carne, the best ribs, fish, chicken, great salads, cold...beer, and the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home which makes this place extra special. Don't forget, Friday is BBQ day. Mmmmmm! If you are in Dauin, make this place a must to visit. You'll meet people from all over the world that return again and again. Thank you again Ruella (owner), Janice, Ruffa, Rillette, Cathy and Geraldine for always going out of your way. My best regards Richie xoxoxoMore
