We found Sunzibar through our Lonely Planet book and went here to get some late dinner. And wow! We had heard about their excellent Ribs but they were so much better than we imagined! The food was served so quickly which was very nice compared to other places we've been. A yummy red berry iced tea was served with the... More

This restaurant is easily the best in Tacloban. The interior is trendy but reserved and the service friendly and attentive. The menu has plenty to offer. I had the Rum Ribs and the beef nachos. Both were equally delicious and my plate was cleaned. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Food is great. Not that pricey too. And there's that small town, homey, non-commercialized vibe about the place that I always love. One of my favorite restaurants in the city.

I think if your looking for good food, Sunzibar is one good option to satisfy your appetite. I love their Diablo Chops. The only thing I dont recommend is their Quesadilla. it was a bit expensive.

We ordered a lot, but I still felt like I wanted more. I guess that's how it must be when the food's great but your host is paying, so I did not order more haha. Seriously, the ribs is great! It is so tender you won't need a knife. Come to think of it, i just used my fork. Definitely... More

Yes! You read it right! It is the best grilled Bangus I have ever tried! The right sauce and the marinade made the culinary experience unforgettable! I would definitely come back for another dish! Oh wait! Tomorrow!

Went with a local friend and enjoyed the food and laid-back atmosphere. It was our second time trying to get in; it was too crowded on our first visit so we returned a week later. The food choices range from Mexican to Asian and are fresh and light. Delicious fruit "Swirlies" (like a smoothie) are a highlight. Seating is at... More
