My favourite place to grab a coffee in the morning or to chill out with beers and cocktail around sunset time... comfy beansacks on the beach perfect for chillax after diving and enjoying a beautiful sunset. Amazing friendly service!!

The best restaurant on Malapascua Island! The food is excellent and the the menu has so many choices, local, Asian and Western food that it makes it very difficult to decide. The service is very good and friendly. Highly recommended!

This is one of the best restaurants in Malapascua. The setting on the beach with the bean bags is very nice for sunset drinks and dinner. The grilled chicken sandwhich is a winner, also try the daily baked treats. The staff are very helpful and friendly as well. Definitely try this place when you are in Malapascua.

I stayed on Malapascua for a few months last spring and this was a go to spot for after dive drinks and hanging out! Great location, awesome drink specials and a yummy menu! Comfy bean bags right on bounty beach aren't a bad thing either!

The food is excellent, the service is amazing! When you have an amazing waitress like Beverly, who says don't worry I will make sure you get home ok. I loved the ambience of it all. I miss this place so much now that I am back home! Book your flights around your booking at Ocean Vida. What memories I have... More
