With lots of restos and a vibrant night life, you won’t be missing out on any of the good food that Puerto Galera has to offer. From local cuisine to international flavors, these restaurants have got you covered. Make sure to check out any of these best restaurants in Puerto Galera for a great food experience.
Take advantage of Puerto Galera’s thriving beach and coastal scene by indulging in authentic Italian food that generously serves seafood in every dish, at an affordable price range!
Luca’s Cucina Italiana is almost a Puerto Galera staple for many tourists who come and go every year. Founded by Italian expat Luca and his wife Anabelle, you won’t have any trouble getting here because almost all the tricycle drivers know exactly where to go. It’s that famous!
If you want to detach yourself from the tourist mayhem that is constantly keeping the party scene alive in Puerto Galera’s white sandy beaches, but you still want to enjoy the scenery and the vibe, try eating (and staying!) at Coco Aroma. Founded by Cora and Joel M. de Veyra, Coco Aroma is divided into two areas, one is the restobar while the other contains cottages.
The vibe in this part of Mindoro is more slow-paced and chill. There’s reggae on repeat, musicians jamming like Bob Marley, hammocks adorn every part of the lodging, and it’s so exclusive that there are only 5 rooms available to stay in! But you need not book a cottage to eat at the restobar—just pick a spot by the nipa cabanas and enjoy the night with great food, wonderful people, and quality drinks.
They’re named after the City that Never Sleeps for a reason! Big Apple Restobar is a great place to hang out if you’re single ready to mingle, or if you just want to be surrounded by the atmosphere of sports-lovers and bar enthusiasts.
They have your typical sports bar fixtures, with games constantly playing on the giant TV, while the bartenders are ready to take any and all of your orders from dusk till dawn! You may even make a new friend or two, since so many people come here to relax and have a good time.
This open-aired restaurant has been in service since 1981, and has continued to serve tourists and locals alike with delicious barbeque that attracts customers from every end of Sabang Beach. In fact, their reputation was built on their sumptuous grilled items, including pork ribs and steaks and grilled seafood. Servings are huge, rice is generous, and Tamarind opens up to a great alcoholic menu selection as soon as night hits the beach!
Expat Stefan fell in love with the Philippines, deciding to stay behind and make a life by the sandy shores of Puerto Galera. His way to give back to the country is through the restaurant cum diving shop, Verde Divers White Beach.
It makes sense to serve delicious food to customers who come for a day of intense diving and swimming, right? And while the restaurant is not as attention-catching in its exterior as the diving shop is, you can’t mistake the aroma of freshly cooked food in the air when you pass by.
The best kinds of meals are the ones where your eyes feast on an equally splendid view. This is what you’ll get if you dine at Capt’n Greggs. The entire establishment is a dive shop turned accommodation turned restaurant, and it’s the first ever of its kind, created in 1983! It’s nautical themed exterior and interior can really put you in the mood to dine and dive.
If you want to experience one of the highest rated restobars of Puerto Galera, splurge a little and grab a seat at The Verandah! Described as casual dining with a world-class view, The Verandah is a restaurant located at the Out of the Blue resort.
One of the owners, John Booth, says that the food they serve should give a sense of comfort and familiarity to its diners, despite the complexity of their menu. Don’t be intimated by its Mediterranean exterior and higher price point—the Verandah is always marked as excellent by all its patrons for a reason.
Named after the influential American writer, Ernest Hemingway, this restaurant is a food critic’s fave and a tourist hotspot for great food that never fails! Its menu is probably the most unique among all the Sabang Beach food spots because of its eccentric yet highly delicious menu, jumping from culture to culture that just shocks the palette. Why is it named after Ernest Hemingway though? It’s because the cuisine listed on the menu is inspired by his travels across the globe!
Although this restaurant is named after the loud, oftentimes scary gecko that makes a “tuko” sound when active at night, Toko is actually a more refined place to dine.
While you’ll be splurging on the menu items, the quality of the food is nothing short of amazing, if the soaring reviews are any indication. In Toko, they only want guests to experience world-class beach resort dining at a price that’s still relatively cheaper than other “luxury” chains along tourist spots.
Full Moon offers another take on eating affordable yet quality meals while surrounded by one of the most scenic views this side of Puerto Galera.
Specializing in Asian, Filipino, and Australian food thanks to the influence of the head chef, Full Moon is a great place to take your family after a long day by the beach. It’s also a quiet hub for opening up your laptop and working to the best view of the riverside!
