There was also a singer in the boat who sang some local songs with a guitar.The boat stops at a small village where group of women perform a cultural welcome dance. The stick dance was quite interesting.worth a visit.Make sure to tip the dancers... More

People and the local government were smart to have this idea where locals can earn for a living. They entertained tourists and made them savor the local food while presenting a cultural show. Very well coordinated. Good job!

if you visit bohol then try this famous loboc river floating restaurant , i highly recommended to try during dinner because it has nicer view due to the lights you can see near the riverbanks, the foods are good, then you will have fun listening to the locals singing while the boat is moving.

A very touristic attraction! River is nice but would be better to enjoy it with a small boat! We could just seat at our table so we had no view of the river! The music was food but the food wasn t great... could be nice for a family or people with difficulties to move

This visit was nice. It is a peaceful river cruise which is quite relaxing if we don't focus on the few stops that are just here to make you spend a few more pesos on typical philippin dances or buying art crafts. The band on the boat is not too loud so it covers just the light noise of the... More

I got grabbed screaming to this rather hockie 1-2 hour lunch cruise. Food is edible, and the guy singing throughout the cruise on an overly loud amp was mostly annoying. But otherwise pleasant enough, some nice scenery, and thankfully it didn't go too long. But I wouldn't do it again.

This place could easily win a prize for the worst of the worst across many categories in Bohol: the worst food, the worst organization, the worst buffet, the worst service.... the cruise itself is nice, but the experience is a joke. The buffet food served is truly awful and can't believe that similar leftovers can be even served! Skip confidently... More

Loboc Floating restaurant for me is more of the experience than the food. Food was good on doubt but it was the demeanor of the guests and the tour that made this experience worth while. The tour had that very festive mood. Guest was multi cultural with a number of foreign tourist on board. Shore side entertainment was interesting. A... More
