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

Forget all other pizza restos here in siargao. Just go straight to kalinaw resort resto and order their pizza. Wood oven baked, crunchy crust edges (not burnt) and soft and chewy in the middle. Add their homemade green chili sauce. Perf! Dont forget the dessert!...We chose the creme brulee (crunchy burnt sugar, cracks perfectly!) and triple choco (brownie base, nuttu caramel filling, glazed with choco ganache!). Nothin but good reviews for this resto!More

So we ate out almost every night in Siargao. Most of the food was okay but we were looking for above average or excellent food. I am so glad we decided to try Kalinaw Resort Restaurant our last night - delicious and great service! We...arrive early around 5/5:30pm since we had kids with us and at first were disappointed because we were too early for dinner service and told we could only order from a limited menu.. but then the staff unbeknownst to us, spoke to the Chef and he came out and waved at us while the staff said he felt bad we came all the way with kids and since he had time, he would make an exception and cook from the dinner service menu! The food was excellent - we are from the San Francisco Bay Area, so we have high standards and the food was on par with many excellent restaurants back at home - not just tasty but beautifully presented. The outdoor seating was lovely - overlooking a small bay, and the staff really provided the best restaurant service we encountered on this Island. The facilities were also the best I've seen on the island. We had to time take a look at the accommodations and wished we had booked to stay at this hotel - it's probably the only luxury hotel on the whole island. I would hands down, visit this restaurant again!More
