Jambalaya was everything it promised! Our first meal in Port Barton and we needed up going back for two more. The brewed coffee is the best around (other places have cheaper but they are flavored coffees), every dish was delicious and good portions. Service was...More

Nice location, but the food was only ok. As I said in the title, don't believe the hype. You'll know what I mean if you stand outside the restaurant.

It's really nice and a cozy atmosphere, good food but a bit pricy compared to other places. Great location on the beach, free wifi and you can leave your luggage there for the day if you're waiting for your check in or a boat etc.

Best taste value is their grilled seafood special platter(ylo fin tuna), served on a sizzling iron pan, w/crisply sauteed veggies, Book before noon to save 10%.

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.
