Where to Eat in Puerto Princesa ( Part 1 ) Badjao Seafront Restaurant

If you ever visit Puerto Princesa in Palawan make sure to have a meal at Badjao Seafront. It is within 15 minutes from any point in downtown Puerto Princesa. Badjao Seafront  ( or Badjao for short ) is a nature-inspired restaurant and is one of the most popular restaurants in Puerto Princesa for tourists and locals alike. I was brought here by my friends, Boom and Jaqui, and we were in the company of the City Tourism Office of Puerto Princesa. The restaurant faces Honda Bay and is surrounded by mangroves.

This is the entrance of the restaurant where you can see mangroves along the walkway.

According to Isay Dacanay, an officer of the City Tourism Office of Puerto Princesa, the restaurant was designed around the mangroves and even on a hot day, the surroundings cooled down the temperature.

When you enter the main dining area, all the tables have a panoramic view of the ocean, hills and the mangrove trees. It seems so surreal. The breeze naturally flows in as there are no windows at all only roll down bamboo shades.

This open-air restaurant rests on stilts in the water and every corner of the main dining room you can take a picture pretty shot of the nearby islands and mangroves.

The restaurant offers Filipino and International Cuisine --- it is reasonably priced and the seafood dishes are an obvious specialty.

Here was what we ordered:

Kilawin na Tanigue

Deep fried Lapu lapu

Halabos na Baby Lobster

Inihaw na Pusit

Guisadong Ampalaya

Guinisang Heart of Palm

Among the restaurants that I went to in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, this was the best. They serve good food, great ambience and good service. The best time to go is during lunch time...or during sunset. If you go at night you will not be able to see any view outside. This restaurant is ideal for family get togethers during the day and a very romantic place for lovers at night. This restaurant is not to be missed while you are in Puerto Princesa....

Happy Eating !!!!
