I stayed in PG for a couple of weeks and visited this place every day. The only downside is that they refuse to serve breakfast after 10:30 (or 11 am?). I have my own experience in restaurant business, and I know for sure, there is no rational reason for that rule. You simply cannot run out of milk or eggs... More

Thank you for your patronage while in Puerto Galera, Lars. Very much appreciated. Regarding serving time for breakfast, of course we are flexible. Sorry for the confusion. Our staff member at the time actually went away to check if a late breakfast was possible and in the time that took, you and your friend had already left. We were disappointed... More

The verandah balcony looks over Small Lalaguna Beach with its colorful outrigger bunka boats and views of Verde island. Wide choice of international and local dishes and very attentive service. Prices are similar to some of the more basic restaurants nearby but the presentation and freshness is way ahead.

The Verandah is the restaurant within Out of the Blue hotel. We had 5 meals here and all items very fresh, tasty, and value priced. Special requests and allergy concerns were understood and accommodated with a smile. Service and food are top notch and we highly recommend them for your dining choice.

My husband and I stayed at Out of the Blue Resort with another couple and enjoyed most of our meals at The Verandah during our visit to Puerto Galera. We were delighted by the fresh fruit smoothies, tuna appetizer, homemade pastas, and, best of all, a special crab meal on our last night. The service was exceptional, especially the attentive...

Very cozy atmosphere, yummy food especially salads (Greek, Caesar) and very good pasta. I've been there several times with my friend and we found this place the best reastaurant in la laguna beach. It's very pleasant place with waiters always ready to help. It's quite hard to find not smoking reastarant, and we were very happy to finally find it.

Relatively new to Puerto Galera, this restaurant is quite a climb to the verandah dining area. Cuisine varied, interesting and tasty. Service good.

All just perfect, nothing to add. Most important for me that they have a smoke-free restaurant, it's rare in Philippines. It's not near the sea, but located on 2nd floor, and view is perfect - sea and trees. Egg noodles with vegs and seafood are the best in this area.
