Real Customer Reviews at Bougainvillea Spanish Restauran and Wine Bar:

Nois- 07:31 05/01/23
Pretty good Spanish restaurant in Panglao, the Paella was even better than the ones you get in many restaurants in Spain. Friendly service and they won us over with the Estrella Galicia. Worth the visit if you are homesick as we were, or just want to have good food at fair prices in a beautiful terrace.

Amy Hu- 11:52 04/02/23
food was absolutely fantastic and good for value! The portion was big, seasoning on point and the best paella I have had since traveling to Spain. Want to applaud the service as well, super friendly and attentive! Only small complaints are that the table is a bit small, so when you have multiple dishes, things would need a lot of shuffling around to be placed on the table. Also, it's a little warm considering the AC was on as well. Overall though would totally recommend for a good night out. Does get very crowded as it's super popular, might want to either come early or make a reservation.

Finding Jeremy and Sebastian- 11:53 03/30/23
What a great find! This Spanish restaurant has a broad selection of Spanish foods, and the quality and flavour are excellent! Most pleased with the service and my dining experience! Worth the visit.

Misha Hubacek- 11:12 07/15/22
We went there twice and loved it! The vegetable paella is so delicious and the potatoes are great too. They only take cash. Enter from the parking lot or from the road going to Alona beach.

Josh Cawley- 11:06 03/20/22
An exceptional fish and squid paella. Didn't expect the squid ink but a great addition. Churros were delicious and good beer and wine options.Be aware, toilets aren't ideal as they are round the back of restaurant but still a deserved 5 stars for food, service and experience.

Dianne Odtohan- 22:21 10/30/21
Food is absolutely excellent! We got overwhelmed with the side dishes and unlike other samgyup restos, here in Kun's Stick and Bowl, the meat has lesser fats or no fats at all. There are touches of Filipino food as well and not just purely korean food. Highly recommended for all samgyupsal/kfood lovers!

Real Customer Reviews at Sisa Bistro:

David Wong- 12:26 04/25/23
Amazing Filipino food. This is easily the best restaurant we’ve been to since we’ve travelled from manila to palawan to cebu. You can tell it’s good because they have good rice and professional service (they can actually answer questions).

Ralph Kristoffer Yee Porio- 06:33 02/05/23
One of Panglao's gems. Food is absolutely delightful, and would definitely recommend the banana blossoms strewed in coconut cream (Corazon, I believe).Great for tourists wanting to try very good Filipino food, as well as locals as they execute their dishes very, very well.The desserts are also great!

Ophelie Chuffart- 21:49 12/20/22
We loved the food so much, so we came twice. The dishes take some time to come out, yet you understand why at the first bite. They are perfectly seasoned, and the flavours are delightful. It is not the cheapest restaurant around, especially for Philippino Cuisine, but it’s worth coming to. We got to try the pork adobo, the Corazon with shrimp and the one with tofu, and the Tiago, which is vegetarian. We devoured all of them, although each individual dish was supposed to be shared :p. Additionally, we top off dinner with a must-to-try divine dessert called Bonifacio.

Migs Bassig- 05:25 10/14/22
Best Filipino food on the island. Every menu item is a hit. Generous portions, affordable prices, friendly service, and reliable quality whether you’re dining in or ordering delivery. Haven’t ordered a meal here that wasn’t delicious. My current favorites are the adobo, pork chops, spicy prawns and kare kare.

R Lim- 10:25 05/21/22
Sisa Bistro is one of my fave restaurants in Panglao. They have healthy and delicious food. The service is great (kudos to the owners and staff)! I also like the cozy ambiance. Bonus is the ample parking space.

Ján Dudič- 01:52 03/03/23
Absolutely perfect place to have lunch if you are in the area. Good selection of both Filipino and western food and tasteful. Seating is sheltered from the main road but still offer a breeze to feel cool in the sunny lunch. Waitress was fluent in English and always smiling.

A G- 04:29 12/20/22
Kind staff, good food. Chicken schnitzel and vegetable curry recommended!

Momo Su- 14:13 12/08/22
Friendly service but the vegetable is unfortunately very salty. It's pretty expensive because the portions are small. They said the seafood are from the frozen ones. In general we are unfortunately not impressed by the dishes. We like the fruit shake though.

Ma.Rinna Lorion- 14:53 11/25/22
There foods is good especially there kinilaw my god its so lami/taste good and affordable price...staff are friendly and nice ..but the bad thing is its alot of mosquitos...

Tim Mitchell- 06:39 10/19/22
We liked this place. We were early for dinner. No problem, staff was friendly and efficient, with typical island chill vibe. The place is HUGE. Two levels with clean washrooms upstairs.Portions family size, small family but still good size for two. Good vegetable choices, dark style adobo, and choice ice cream on halo halo.Mango shake very tasty - more fruit taste than powder taste.Recommend and would return.

Banananaa Anchel- 05:06 01/02/23
tried one eating there in the restaurant and once order from the delivery.pizza and cheese plater is wonderful, almost every of my friends enjoy it.

Juan Pedro Vicente- 08:01 12/24/22
Pizza, watermelon shake, chicken sandwich and ham and cheese omelette. Everything was very good and tasty. Friendly staff. The owner is an Italian who makes his own mozzarella in panglao. Only for that it worths the visit!

Damyeon Kim- 10:27 12/17/22
It was such a nice place to chill out and have a great meal!Not to mention their authentic pizza and pasta, I enjoyed their prawn something a lot!(forgot the name of the menu😢)Everyone was so friendly and the vibe here is beyond expectation!!! I'll definitely come back again!

Vincent Cortesi- 12:46 07/16/22
Excellent, tasty food. Genuine buffalo mozzarella cheese made on the spot. The pizzas and bread are made in a wooden oven. That's so rare to find in such a place. Everything we ordered was top notch. Moreover, the place is comfortable, clean, with good relaxing music and with a lot of space for children to move around in total security. There is a great babyfoot too to play, while waiting for the food to be served. Last but not least, the staff and owner were welcoming and reactive. Excellent experience

Food Lovers (FoodLovers)- 10:18 06/13/22
2 stars for the service; they were very nice people. Unfortunately the food was no good. We went for the pizza and the lasagna.They told us that they did not have homemade mozzarella di buffala but they had a imported one. They had delivery issues… Okay, that’s fine! I mean if the guy is doing it’s own mozzarella di buffala, he probably knows what’s he’s doing and the pizza must be awesome right?We couldn’t have been wronger… No fresh mozzarella at all on the pizza but just some sort of grated cheese. Being myself a pizzaiolo, I greatly doubt it’s was fresh or homemade dough. More like a pita bread. And the lasagna was made from fresh pasta, but fresh frozen (just like Gorgon would say) and microwaved. We haven’t eaten this one. Terrible.The real problem with all this is, it’s written everywhere on the menu that almost ALL pizzas are made from fresh mozzarella di buffala and pasta are fresh. But it’s not.Please advise properly your customers and don’t try to fool them. We tried to tell the owner but wasn’t interested of hearing it.COVID has been so hard on F&B businesses. We know it. We’ve been working in this industry for decades my wife and I. We hope that things get better for them and everyone else. Be considered for those tourists, customers that are spending their hardly harvest money at your place.Wish you sincerely the best.

Everything was perfect. 5 stars to the food, the view, the staff, especially Kate who made us feel like royalties and took great care of my family. I won’t say more, just book a table and enjoy!

Nico Samneil Salado- 12:45 01/10/21
Service is great! The servers has good initiative. Food is pricey and food quantity is small. They dont have much in their menu. Taste is not that distinctive but i think the pay i had here that became reasonable is the view and the architectural design.

HariHaran Amuthamozhi Venkatachalam- 12:23 01/24/19
Good Food - Cozy . The View is totally worth it 🤩. But their pizzas are garbage 😑 we tried Margarita it sucked to hell 😂 Guessing their other pizzas would be Garbage too but the Continental and the Filipino dishes and Desserts were all good

Carol Chang- 11:00 11/01/18
Deep fried seafood platter is good, but grilled prawns and red snapper with bacon was under cooked . Ask for redo, but same dish been brought back in 5 minuets, means microwave only . Service was lazy, we pour wine by ourselves, paper napkins was thirty 。 maybe we had bad luck today . Not recommend.

Real Customer Reviews at Bamboo Place:

Anthony James- 13:40 03/16/23
Avoid. There are many nice bars lining the area that stray away from the false pretentiousness of this place. I was made to stand for a long time waiting to be seated and being ignored by staff, despite having spoken to many of them. The place looks nice enough in aesthetic, but the staff are none attentive, no customer service is present and the menu lacks anyway. You’re better off heading to the bars round the corner or in the promenade if you’re looking for a good time, you certainly won’t find it here.

Артем Чанчин- 07:53 02/03/23
The place is great. I fell in love with tuna seviche for sure. Drinks are very good and prices are reasonable. Was very surprised, how slow chill vibe and soft lights change for a huge party after midnight!Ah, also the best shisha I tried in Panglao!

Cozy, good food, cool drinks and very friendly staff. This is a must eat/drink in Bohol. Very accessible location as well, near McDonalds going to the beach.We really enjoyed their food. They have a very huge selection on their menu and all seems to be very delicious.I ordered the signature burger as I am craving for one the whole vacation and it was really yummy. One of my companion didn’t like the turmeric drink but I really liked it. I’m the one who finished it haha. Soothes the throat and clears the palette.

A MUST visit in Bohol!!Food is sooooo good! Must try garlic butter shrimps with fried rice and the red curry. Portion is decent and the prices are good. Ambient is very chill and relaxing, decorated with memorabilia from the owners adventures around the world.Staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner/chef Mike is wonderful and super hospitable. Don’t miss this gem when you are there!

leo- 07:06 07/23/22
A must-try resto here in Panglao. No wonder their review rating is so high! Sumptuous meal in large serving! The place has random stuff scattered all over the place yet it’s still aesthetically pleasing— a beautiful disaster! 😂 Seriously, this is highly recommended.

김강현- 10:40 07/14/22
One of the best restaurants I've visited in Bohol!! everything on the menu is great 👍you should definitely try out this place!!oh and by the way, Chef if you see this comment, you should reply me a post with a pic of a dish made from the canned Kimchi I left with you ;))thanks for the great lunch we had two days in a row!!

We went around 11:30am. The handsome chef/owner opened the resto and assisted us. He was quick to deliver our order knowing he is a one-man show.Food didn't disappoint. All Google reviews are true. The food is tasty. Quality is on point. The serving size is huge. Fresh ingredients. Thoughtfully made. Friendly prices.No wonder at night, this bistro is full and queues are long!Plus the creative interior!!

Mary Josanne de Castro- 13:23 05/27/22
The food is very delicious! The chef/owner is very hands on and accommodating. This place is highly recommended when visiting Panglao. So far the best food I had in our week long stay. We ordered the shrimp coconut soup and the salmon.

Kenny Hawley- 12:32 04/08/23
Absolutely the best Chinese style seafood I have eaten so far in the Philippines! The shrimp both styles I ordered and the chop suey were crazy good in my personal opinion. I have eaten Asian style seafoods in Thailand, Philippines, China and USA and this place is in my top ten.

Finding Jeremy and Sebastian- 12:11 04/01/23
Really enjoyed my meal at Lamoy tonight. The food was really tastey and the staff were really nice. Also a big bonus is that you can pay with card! Thank you team at Lamoy for a lovely dining experience.

Frank Rudert- 16:09 02/01/23
the Sinigang was really awesome! Basically everything was what we ordered was good. The Restaurant is very clean, also the restroom. Privately owned Restaurant which is another big plus compared to the other chain based Restaurants at this spot. I can highly recommend!

Ian Reynoso- 10:47 01/18/23
Enjoyed the laksa! I’m not into spicy food and their laksa has just the right spice and coconut flavor. The kinilaw is not that great, just vinegar and not enough flavors. Overall, good food!

I have to say, I enjoyed every single bite of the meal in La Vara. Had the chicken with quinoa and mango, was delicious. Serving comes super fast. This place is great! Atmosphere is chill and cool and the staff is also really friendly. Absolutely the best meal while in Panglao, Bohol.YOU HAVE TO TRY THE MANGO FLOAT SHAKE !! AWESOME !!

Tim Mitchell- 04:05 10/24/22
This place is a beautiful little road side cafe of sorts. Definitely instagramable. Food size to cost ratio was more than fair.Very unique menu with familiar local ingredients with a Spanish/international flair of sorts (Quinoa, paella, burgers, tacos). Seating choice of cozy tents (!) to outdoor tables in a lovely setting.Recommend and would return.

야자수에코코넛- 14:45 10/07/22
Cream sause is really nice. I'd like to recommend a mac n cheese, if you don't have lactose intolerance. All the dishes are awesome. It's the best place where ever been I go to Bohol restaurant. But there has only one weakness, they aren't allowed the credit card.

Toi Bornas (Toi)- 09:56 08/21/22
Went here kind of late to fulfill that sweet cravings and we were the only customers around.The place really looks cool and hip.Anyway, we got the mango crepe and mango shake. Just full on mango test-tasting.First off, the crepe looked amazing. Served on an black slab, the ripe mango just stands out. Now the taste. The mango does stand out, as it should, because it was perfectly ripe.The mango shake was cool and the sweetness of the mango was just refreshing. It was a perfect cool sweet drink to end the our day after whole-day power interruption.Highly recommended!

Joy Tang- 12:08 05/27/22
A little cosy restaurant opposite the motado strip and Modala Beach Resort. We had nachos, paella and the kebab and they were all decent tasting. Drinks were alright but food tasted good.When serving the food the kebab fell off the plate to a serving tray for a moment, while we were fine with it will recommend to replace it for other patrons as the tray didn’t look as clean as the plate it came in.Overall nice vibes and will come back for dinner again when I drop by the area.

Great place to get a tasty nutritional meal.The smoothiebowls are very delicious!!!We ate here 2 days in a row since the menu has so many amazing options that you want try.Only comment I can give is that the coffee (I had a cappuccino and a flat white) is a bit too cold, and also it’s made with oat milk and there are no other options for the milk.. but if you like that, its great.

Pia Moll McCarthy- 10:00 02/14/23
Lovely little place with a varied and appealing menu. The food is nicely present. However, I found all the food to be too sweet. If you're offering vegan food, which is meant to be healthy, putting loads of sugar in it is quite a paradox.

Misha Hubacek- 20:13 07/17/22
The food is delicious and vegan! Really healthy and fresh ingredients. I love the setting as well and the staff are very kind. I highly recommend!

Anna James- 05:02 07/01/22
My absolute favourite spot in Panglao. I found it on the first day I was here and have been back for breakfast each day since. The coffee is the best. The oat milk latte and the Americano were both amazing and the all the food was delicious.I can’t wait to come back to Panglao so that I can eat here again. They’re open all day until about 8pm.

Jaki Teo- 03:04 05/05/22
Located close to Alona Beach on the corner of Ester Lim Drive, Shaka is the best choice for vegan and healthy dishes in the area. They have an extensive menu of fresh juices, smoothie bowls, burgers, and mains—all vegan! Really impressive variety in the menu. Some of the food could use a little more flavour but absolutely no complaints considering we are on an island in the Philippines. Nice atmosphere to chill as well.
