Been here in January (2020). Didn't need a reservation, we could just sit outside on "the pier", above the water. I did order a Salmon Pasta, but also tasted the first time Sizzling Sisig. A well known Filipino dish. As a Filipino myself, i was...astonished by the view and the taste of Filipino food. It was my first time going back to the Philippines since i'm a adoptee. (I live in Europe)More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Harbor view on our first day in Manila. The location is ideal, it is actually a dock so you sit just above the sea, all the dishes we ordered were extremely tasty and the staff was very polite. The...only negative I could say is that it is a bit expensive for Manila standards. They could at least make the portions a bit bigger for that price.More

We ordered the seafood basket and they came without the basket. The waiter cut us short when we complained as the visit before the seafood arrived in a very nice edible basket which this time wasn’t there and no one gave us any explanation. Quite...disappointed for the treatment.More

Great location, good food. On a pier out into the sea. Great views of the sunset and Manila skyline at night. Good food, loved the clam soup.

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Manila. Because of its ambiance and uniqueness as this is the only floating restaurant in Manila. The food is delicious and affordable. Must try the sinigang belly sa miso and the the adobo baby squid

This place opens at 11 in the morning. It's next to the Ocean Park, It has a nice view of Manila bay and close to Luneta Park. They offer Filipino food especially seafood. A lot of people will say that it's pricey but they need...to understand that the location of the restaurant plus labor is expensive so I understand why the price is the way it is. Also the portion size is good for two people. They don't have their own WiFi but there is a public WiFi that you can use to take pictures for Instagram. They also accept Credit and Debit Card. I'm giving it a 4 star review because there is still room for improvements. - Find a way to open earlier than 11 am. - Have your own WiFi exclusive for guest. - Work on presentation, because millennials like me like to post pictures on Instagram. - Few improvements with the servers and the service. - Improvements with online orders and delivery. Overall I will recommend this place for locals, foreigners and balikbayans.More

After viewing previous reviews and seeing this restaurant had the #1 place for Seafood restaurants we were extremely disappointed. The main focus was on the highly recommended chilli crab. Unfortunately this was extremely dry, tasteless and for the price of 1,950 pesos (where we were...not asked which type of crab we wanted or an approximate weight) you would have expected more meat. One positive was the prawns with garlic and we wished we had ordered more of this and given the crab a complete miss. We ordered 4 dishes and they all came at once meaning some were cold by the time we got to them. The service was ok but we did have to ask for water. All in all a disappointing meal for 5,000 pesos (£75).More

A very disappointing experience! We came here to enjoy the harbour view and to have a fine filipino dinner. The view is nice but the food is tasteless and totally overpriced! My husband was served 15 minutes after me... The fish was not that greatly...cooked at all and the sushi was made of lot of rice and a few pieces of very common fishes. Nothing special besides the price!More

Came here to eat twice this month. (Havent been here in along time) They have maintained their quality of food and service through the years. Love the salmon belly soup and the sisig. They have a wide variety of dishes in their menu. Price is...pretty reasonable. Cant beat the view! You have the manila bay on one side and the Manila skyline on the other side. Very busy place tho. The wait could be long on lunch and dinner time. Staff are very nice and accomodating. Special mention to Jayson who did an awesome job! Will definitely go back when I visit manila again.More

Good location, good food but slow service. Perfect location with harbor view and nice food - I had prawns garlic. The service was uninspired and slow. More focused on TV sports than customers.

They have the room for 80 people - but I would certainly call ahead and make the arrangements.

I don't think they do delivery.. but try to go to their website and check anyway. It is actually more fun to eat it there though!
