After a walk along the seaside boardwalk, we opted for this restaurant, as we were craving some grilled fish and this place seemed to be the most appealing option. We went for red snapper, rice, fried calamari and veggies. We were not served glasses for the water (?!), and the tablecloth was not clean. Regarding the location, it's on the... More

We were told not to comeback and that my bf was "tarantado" by one of the restaurant's male staff after we informed them about the quality of their marinara. (refer to the photo) took almost an hour for them to serve our order and for this quality? the male staff refused to give us his name and the other staffs... More

This restaurant has been here for twenty one years, pretty good going considering the competition. I have eaten here many times, it's consistently good and a great atmosphere eating on the beach and generally chilling out. Their new bar is a clever idea and seems to be attracting the customers.. A word of thanks to our lovely waitress Arlene who... More

This restaurant had the best selection of fish on the beach and we chose a lovely red snapper that was grilled very well. We ate this in a beautiful setting. These were the positives. The side of vegetable skewers were terrible. They barely cooked some onions, tomatoes, aubergines (they really need to be cooked well) and cucumber (weird) on the... More

We refer to this restaurant as 'Woderick and Wivien' and love it! Arguably the busiest restaurant on Alona Beach we have been eating here for years and never disappointed either with the food or the atmosphere. Just before the typhoon they only had four tables set out on the sand, we sat at one of them whilst the remainder stayed... More

The food is good. All night fresh fish from the bbq on the beach. Point of critic is that they are serving lots of reeffish (like parrotfish). Also the hygienic standards are not "western"

Restaurant located right on the beach serving fresh seafood and grilled meats. Try their sour seaweed sallads, butter and garlic prawns and crabs togehter with grilled fish and seashells. The prices are humane.
