Kinabuch is a bar and restaurant where you can sit inside or outside in a comfortable setting. The staff are friendly, fast and efficient and the food is good. Try the gising gising if you like spicy food....I almost always order it.

Tasty and flavourful foods with affordable prices. It was really an unforgettable night spending with friends and family. Hope we can taste their crocodile sisig when we come back.

We visited Kinabuch twice on our visit. The first time we had Laing and Lechon Kawali and then went back on our last night as the Lechon had been so good and we wanted it again before we left. That time we also had Kaldereta....All the food was absolutely fantastic, but we did have much better service on our first visit than our second (which is why we could only give it 4 stars not 5). On our second visit we ended up waiting almost an hour for the bill then for them to come and take payment and then to get our change. The first time however we had a wonderful waitress who didn't mind me trying out some of my tagalog either! I also have a nut allergy and they were great both times about this and I felt very confident eating there. Would definitely go back, it just seems luck of the draw about which server you get.More

Dined with extended family. It was very busy when we arrived but we were served promptly and the food was good.

All hype. Puerto Princesa needs an UPDATED list of restos especially for people like us who travel for food. and would just rely on online reviews. ▪️Garlic rice platter was sticky. ▪️Grilled fish still has scales. ▪️Crocodile sisig was burnt at the bottom. We paid...400php and expected a lot, only to be served with half burnt food. List goes on. No photos of food as it was not even appetising. Go here if you would like to have some beers. We orderd tequila shots and were surpised that they served us with a lot of lemon. For the first time the whole night we were there, we felt that we got our money's worth. Not joking - giving 2 stars instead of 1 because of the shots, but definitely not coming back, not recommended. Tourist trap.More

I've been here several times. A few times perhaps between 5 and 8 years ago, and then just recently. The food used to be better. It's ok, but just average. The atmosphere is ok. I'm not knocking it....if you want a bar, then go there...on the weekend eves....the place gets crowded and for whatever reason appears to be the happening spot. But then, that's when I'd avoid such a place. No desire to hassle with crowds, wait long time for service, and just sit and drink watching others do the same. So, if that's your thing, check it out. For a bar, the food is ok. For families, avoid evenings, especially weekends, and lunch might be ok.More

We just tried the famous and bestseller Crocodile sisig. It was our first time to try an exotic dish. It was surprisingly good. Service was good and fast despite the fact that the place was packed and busy. I will definitely come back and try...other dishes here.More

Went for some Palaweno (microbrewery) craft beer to accompany a meal. Despite having the product on the menu, they had no stock. The food ordered (seafood Sisig & Spinich stirfy) was terrible. The venue may be popular with those seeking the huge outdoor television screen...and local (tasteless) beer, but that would be about it!More

The food was okay, but expensive for it's standard. The staff didn't look at us once, wondering how they got the order right. Staff literally running around. Very sad atmosphere, basically just a tourist trap.

We ate here on our first night in Palawan, we found much better places to eat during our holiday. View from table was a large car park and a giant screen showing german football. We had spring rolls, sizzling prawns, red chicken curry. Wasn’t terrible,...but just not very good, hence average rating.More
