This restaurant has really the best pizza on the island. A nice place located just by the beach. They also have a great wine selection and great appetizers. Highly recommended.

We were so happy to have made the long schlep from where we were staying to have dinner at the Kalinaw Restaurant. The food was superb. Our eclectic fusion choices of fish spring rolls, tuna pizza and Med salad were all perfectly prepared and presented....Nor surprising I suppose when you a have a Filipina head chef with French ownership of a mostly Italian-themed restaurant. It works! Our romantic beachside table made for an exquisite experience all around.More

An excellent romantic dinner surprise was successfully prepared during my birthday last december 20 of this year. Being one of the luxury resort- resto, i give it additional superb points for its kind employees going out of their way to plan this surprise for me...together with my makulit and so sweet husband. Special mention to Ms Shane and Ms Kristel for spearheading the candlelit beachfront dinner together with the whole group complete with a buoquet of roses, balloons and cake(which Ms Shane bought from an outside store). My stomach and heart was full. I ordered honey glazed pork belly and my husband fish tartare- true to French cuisine. My husband rarely eats fish meals but this time enjoyed it so much and was all praises. The garlic rice was the best .We even met the Chef himself that night. The December weather cooperated too giving us a chance to enjoy the dinner with the ocean breeze amongst the trees. We will definitely come back and is now considering to book a room in the resort itself.More

Candle light dinner, soft music, excellent service, and good food. French and Italian owners (you can definitely tell) and they really pay attention to details. The only thing I did not like so much is to find butter on the tapas selection (mixed bruschette) but...I should have asked, knowing the 'French touch'. Highly recommended in Siargao for a romantic and peaceful experience.More

Kalinaw Restaurant is a hidden gem in the busy life of General Luna area. Dinner there can be very romantic but also good for groups of friends. They have very tasty daily specials. We tried Mahi Mahi ceviche, piza peperoni, fish rolls and greek salad....We found everything very well presented and truly good. The service was very professional, friendly and kind. We really enjoyed dinner and would recommend it without doubtMore

Amazing food and great service. The pizzas, truffle risotto and chocolate cake are to die for! Only pay a lil bit more than other restaurants to have this good quality food! 🤤 also it was very romantic with a candlelit meal on the beach 🏝

The pizza, pasta and wine are all good. It's really one of the restaurants in the island. You can have your meal on the beachfront. Their wines list are great and reasonable price - even their house wines are so good. Compared to other restaurants,...they offer good rate and good quality of wine here. The pizza I have to say is really the best, simple but the flavoring is perfect. It will really satisfy you would noy disappoint. We had the campagnola di parma and for the pasta Tagliolini al frutti di mare. Staff are kind and accommodating.More
