After an entire two days of traveling, CouCou was our first restaurant and literally our first actual meal. Hunger alone should have made anything taste amazing, but neither the food nor the wait staff lived up to the numerous positive reviews we read prior to coming here. The pork sisig and the chicken curry platter were okay but the coucou... More

The food was definitely not worth the price. This is resort so we expected a little more. Not only the food wasn't great but the customer device was awful. Needs a lot of improvement.

The place catches my eyes, it's so cozy and romantic, though I am alone :) You get what you paid. The food and drinks are just awesome. I ordered cheeseburger, mango shake and pina coloda and they serve it all together. So I end up asking for an ice for my pina coloda coz it's not cold anymore after i... More

I liked the setting, sitting on the floor. Good location in the center of things. Food was decent but I was disappointed with the service. Having already spent a few weeks in the Philippines this was not a judgment based on Western standards at all. It was slow and I felt like as was a bit in the way. I... More

We were a big group of 12, and when we arrived, the staff ignored us. It would have taken a bit of initiative for the waiters to request for us to wait while they got the tables arranged. But they ignored us till we took the initiative to see where tables were available and where someone else was leaving, and... More

Great place for a decent coffee in the morning and the cooked breakfasts are very good. Lunch menu is tasty too and good value. We popped in every day at some point over our 6 days on island.

One of their crew is pretty and that's the only good thing about this restaurant LOL. The restaurant is accessible to the road and has a nice ambiance. Their food is kinda bland for my taste, the pancake has no taste at all. Bam-i and chicken curry is so-so. Danggit is the only food that has a taste in that... More

If the staff had been more motivated then the experience would have been better. Food was okay a little pricey but okay, the location is fine nearby shops, public market and other restaurants and nearby beach. Food: Fine but a little pricey A long time to wait no crew in dinning area... if you want to add additional order you... More
