Boat Station 2, 马莱Aklan Province 菲律宾
I merely dropped in for drinks during happy hour which is from 4-7pm with 40% off. I had two lovely cold San Miguel Lites. Lovely beachfront location with outdoor seating and they have moved further along from when I last visited and dined a few years ago.
2 adults/2 late teenagers. Really tasty seafood which you choose at the bar and pay for by weight. We were all hungry so our bill was Peso 3,395 including 8 drinks & tax. We ate whole steamed fish, King Prawns, rice, noodles and King Crab. The Crab was absolutely delicious! We were also entertained by a great jazz band: I think they were called Kuerdas Gensan?... after a great band called Jam Busters from Hong Kong. Great venue (in Stage 2) for people watching & music, including the fire-eaters entertainment next door.
We ordered a lobster, 3 prawns, a blue marina (all grilled), a plate of fried vegetables and some soft drinks, which cost us about USD80. We find that the seafood were over grilled, resulting in a dry and tough texture. The staff seem unenthusiastic about serving their customers and lacked the initiatives. Eg. at the seafood ordering counter, the staff did not bother to acknowledge our presence till we had to catch her attention. She simply gestured us to wait and disappeared for more than 5 minutes and we had to get help from one of the waiters. After settling our bill, we asked for direction to the washroom. The staff pointed to the building behind us. But when we walked over, the security guard asked from us coupons from the restaurant where we dined in before we could enter. Why didn't the restaurant staff issue us a coupon when we asked for direction? These are little annoyances which affect the overall dining experience. On the whole, we are not impressed by the service and food quality.
