I'm a Taclobanon and I greatly recommend this resto to fami gatherings. It has space enough at the 2nd floor, live music to boot and good, warm ambiance. The food is great once you get it(it takes awhile). But overall, its a good place to reunite with family.

If you're fond of seafood, this is a go-to place. From shrimp to different fish are just in front of you and you just have to choose which really caught your eye. And, most of all, they're all FRESH! You can tell when it's already cooked and it is whenever I come to this place. Your money is worth of... More

Very good fish restaurant, excellent service. Nice wines, but unfortunately, as normal in Philippines, they don't understand how to serve it.

This is the only restaurant that I've gone for dinners for 3 straight nights (out of 4 nights of my Tacloban stay)! Definitely will recommend.

If you love seafood, this is the place to go! It was my first visit last December and it was a good thing we made reservations because the waiting line's too long. All in all, Ocho did not disappoint!

Their specialty is seafood. They have rooms on the second floor for groups. Service is efficient and friendly. We tried their kinilaw which was very good. The kinilaw is mixed with coconut milk similar to other regions in the Visayas. The spicy squid was also excellent. The ginataang kangkong was equally good. If you want a simple place with dependable... More

The yummiest Filipino seafood for a reasonable price. Don't miss if you're in Tacloban. Kinilaw na tangegui and tortang talong is highly recommended.

Highly recommended by a local, I went straight to this restaurant after my plane landed in Tacloban. The feel is homey and welcoming. You get to choose the seafood or meat you want to eat and the type of cooking to be done. Everything was fresh and I can't complain about the cooking. And the best part is the price!... More

the place looks fancy. And seafood they have. But rice was awful, the worst ever gotten in Philippines and seafood was overcooked. there's a lot of waiters. they have some walkie talkie system. But that doesn't rescue service. Feels more like a fast food service, not a fine dining
