Marvellous beach side restaurant a few metres from a white sand beach. Apart from serving great food, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Whatever your preference, they can serve lunch or dinner on the beach, under a palm tree or at the pool, basically wherever ever you like. You must try the seafood, "catch of the day", which is...

My wife and I have visited Siquijor Island 3 times on our travels around The Philippines, totalling 6 weeks in all and we have become regular customers at Salamandas restaurant. It really is the perfect restaurant. The beach location is like something out of a dream, white sand and a marine sanctuary, it's absolutely beautiful. Our most recent visit was... More

Great for romantic dinners. Even with many guests, the vibe is very hushed and quiet. You can eat in the resto or enjoy the view by the beach. Service is a little slow, though, but they give free bread to tide you over. Food is a little pricey, more filling than the food from their other restaurants. Not good for... More

We had lunch at the Salamandas Restaurant, specializing in seafood, at the most upscale resort on Siquijor Island, the Coco Grove Beach Resort. A most pleasant walk past the pool and gardens from the reception area to Salamandas, lead us to the tastefully apppointed open air beach-side restaurant. The decor, with it's arched bridge over a fountain-fed pond, lots of... More

I love the setting of this restaurant - in front of the beach which was very soothing and relaxing for me and my family. Food was great too and, for the ambiance that it offered, the price for me was reasonable. Waiting time was tolerable too. This is a beach resort so no hurry.

I am really disappointed with this restaurant. Location is great, nice setting by the beach and background music. Staff were friendly and sat us down at a table with a view. Lighting is very poor I had to use the iPhone torch to read the menu, the lady also brought out a candle. We ordered garlic bread to start. It... More

I'm starting this review with the total cost of the dinner we had in this restaurant: Php 1,610 for 3 people. For the record, it was the most expensive we've had in our entire five-day trip to Apo Island-Dumaguete-Siquijor. And for it to be not the best dining experience is kinda heartbreaking. The food wasn't bad at all, but we... More

Even though its Sunday with only about few customers, it took about 90mins for our order to arrive - crispy kangkong, sinigang at sizzling sisig.they shouldn't say it will only take 30 mins or just offered complimentary nuts or bread while we wait

OK, let it be known, I am only rating the restaurant here. My GF and I were motorcycling by here and decided to stop for lunch. First, let me say, the ambiance and presentation of the overall hotel is very nice: seems cushy and well-taken care of, at least on the surface. And the beachside restaurant is very nice, with...
