Food - Expensive and nothing extraordinary with their food. The staff told us that the owner of the restaurant is promoting healthy and organic food (no msg, no magic sarap and all). We ordered their omelette, we thought that since it's expensive they are using...More

In a small town like port barton with limited dining options, I hoped jambalaya would serve good coffee and food. Objectively, it just didn't do it for me. Food was average, and ate it only because I was starving.

I don't know why, but in several days, I've never seen it full, maybe because is a bit overpriced than the others bars. But food is good, and service kind.

Jambalaya pleasantly surprised us! We were just wandering on the Port Baton beach front when we decided to try it out! At the time they had happy hour and drinks were discounted! We asked for guidance on meals and both our meals were so tasty!...More

The Jambalaya Cajun Cafe is currently located in the middle of the beach in Port Barton. We are a small cozy restaurant, with amazing sunset views! We are highly recommended by all the leading Philippines travel guidebooks. We recommend making a reservation for evening dining.
