restaurants & bars

Most islands with a limited infrastructure like Malapascua's offer very limited menus in their restaurants. But on Malapascua we are incredibly lucky and have some great restaurants that have set a very high standard.


Oscar's is the premier dining experience on Malapascua and has without a doubt the fastest service. It serves a mix of international dishes and there is almost always something on the menu that you will love. The menu changes every day, to take advantage of the freshest ingredients. It is beautifully located on the beachfront in an open air location, high up amongst the palm fronds above Thresher Shark Divers. It is especially popular at sunset.

Although they serve international cuisine, the bar and restaurant is British owned so look out for those British specials including weekly Sunday Roast Dinner, Full English Breakfast, Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash and the British national dish of Chicken Tikka Masala and other assorted curries including their signature dish - the Paratha Curry Roll. Possible the only place in the Philippines you can get a Cheddar and Branston Pickle sandwich.

The Pub Upstairs

The Pub Upstairs is adjacent to Oscar's Restaurant and serves great cocktails and bar food. Note of warning: Be wary of the shot bell. Once the bell starts ringing and the rounds of shots are poured, it barely stops for the rest of the night!

Angelina's Italian Restaurant

Angelina's is simply great Italian food. It is owned and run by Angela and Ricardo, who both overflow with the Italians' love of good food. Another beautiful location, perfect for watching the sun go down and whiling away the evening. The menu includes homemade pizza Italian style, and freshly made pastas. The ingredients include many meats and other items imported directly from Italy.

Isla Bonita

Fresh, well prepared food at reasonable prices. The menu includes a mix of European and Filipino specialties, all prepared with loving care.


Malditos serves excellent international food and has a popular bar that is usually open late. It has TVs and often shows major sports. Ask anyone if it is open when you are there.


Ging-Ging's is known for its cheap and cheerful food. The menu is fairly basic and the portions small, but it is inexpensive and a great place to eat if you on a budget. Very popular with backpackers.

There are several other restaurants on the island, but this is the pick of our favourites.
