We have a few favorite restaurants in Moaboal on Panagsama Beach. I would say these five places cover pretty much every wish in terms of food.
Little Corner. Perhaps it’s the most popular place on the beach. Sea view, prices are not high, a variety of dishes, grilled seafood. All people who work there are Philippines. They live next to the restaurant. I recommend the pancakes, shrimps or squids in garlic or sweet souse. Andrey prefers Chicken Canton – good and satisfying. Many people buy fish and seafood on fish market in Moalboal and bring it to a restaurant for cooking. It’s not super cheap, but still cheaper than to buy a grilled fish in the restaurant. There is no internet in the restaurant, but you can find a night bar here with young and sexy girls, if you know what I mean.
The Pleasure Principle Resto-Bar. It’s a place with excellent service and good Wi-Fi. The owner of the place is Steve from Great Britain. He cooks, supervises the staff and entertains guests with stories. Prices are higher than in Little Corner, but the place is clean, there is no cockroaches and a service is very customer-oriented. In addition, Steve gladly answer any questions. By the way, the place is #1 on Trip Advisor. Best pizza in Panagsama is here. My favorite is Hawaiian, Andrey prefers Steve’s Specials pizza. Another great dish is Tom Yam soup and, of course, Kano Breakfast with amazing orange marmalade. As a complement, you almost certainly get a drink and an appetizer.
Lantaw Restaurant is a place with the best quality for reasonable price. The restaurant is located on the second floor, above the Neptune dive center. It make the place more private than restaurants along the road, and also allows you to enjoy the beautiful sea view. Chef in the restaurant is a great cook, and also a very nice person. He gladly describes how he makes dishes. He brings orders themselves, so it’s pretty easy to talk to him. Overall service is really good, which can’t say about Little Corner, but the prices are about the same. At the same time the overall atmosphere and furniture are much better. All the dishes that we tried were delicious. I usually take vegetables, shrimps or squids, Andrey prefers chicken and pork. If you want something exotic, try Fish Kinilaw. This raw marinated tuna. It looks very exquisitely. The taste is a little bit too “vinegar”, but nice and unusual. As for Wi-fi, you can use Neptune dive center network.
Andy’s Talisay. It’s essentially a beach with a bar. It offers the lowest prices for drinks while the quality and a service are excellent! Coffee, alcohol, shakes – everything is here. Internet is good, so a lot of people came here just to check their email and Facebook. It’s located in front of Pacita’s Beach Resort. On Saturday there is a live music in the bar. Also you can find parties for Pacita’s guests. Grilled pig, a lot of fruits and a lot of fun!
Cafe Cebuano is a great place if you want to get some coffee. Best latte in Panagsama. You can find internet here, but it’s not very good.
