PROS:

1. I ordered Sizzling Gambas with Rice and it was the Bomb. Super spicy, yet super yummy! The serving portion could be improved, but still everything was good.

2. Location. The restaurant is located at Bounty Beach (beside blue corals resort), where you will be dropped off when coming from Maya Port going to Malapascua Island. Very accessible.

This restaurant is located right at the entrance of Bounty Beach when you're coming from Logon Beach! They have lovely beach side seating under a large tree where you can spend hours just relaxing and reading!

This place has a very limited vegetarian menu, so I didn't eat here as often! Although, their mixed vegetable curry was perfectly spiced, creamy and absolutely delicious! Its absolutely one of the best places to have curry! They also do excellent shakes and their mango shake is particularly good!

The one thing that brought down their rating was the fact that I had ordered garlic rice -they were out of garlic rice, but no one came to inform me even after I had placed the order and my curry had been delivered. So while my curry sat there getting cold, I had to ask for my garlic rice to be informed that they were out! This according to me is completely unacceptable! They did give me plain rice after, but it didn't make up for the poor service!

This restaurant is not the cheapest restaurant on the Island. But its not most expensive either. I felt the prices they charged was comparable to the food that was served.

I was GRANDPAcking in Malapascua for 11 nights and tried a few different places.
There is one budget restaurant on Bounty Beach: the Mabuhay.
It is cheaper than the others but not, necessarily, better value for money.
You are paying to be on the beach.
You get better value for money going to the restaurants in the back street parallel to Bounty Beach.

The restaurant is at the end of the beach, close to massive building of Blue Coral resort. Has tables under the trees right on the beach, so you can relax at your meal. Any meal swe tried was tasty and prices were quite moderate. Very good option if yo do not need a super trendy restaurant.

The fried rice dishes were great and was the sea food good.

Its in expensive and located perfectly.

I ate here every day.

Avoid the pizza. This was a mistake, i thought it would be nice to have with the really inexpensive beer they serve. I was not. I saw an Italian Restaurant on the other side of the island (not a long walk from the Mabuhay and heard that it was good).

Service can be a little slow, but the staff a delightful and are really apologetic should they feel they have been a while. But, the beer is cheap, have another beer, it will arrive and its such a great location!
