Very tasty and great portions of the Filipino food, although they have other options, try the spicy Sinigang a real treat. I doubt you will be disappointed.

This is a great place. I ate there two nights and the seafood was excellent. Clearly very fresh and well cooked. The free starter and post meal drink were an added bonus. Very pleasant staff as well. A must visit when in Moalboal
