We stumbled upon this place looking for a coffee shop with a view. We then ended up staying for a meal as well.

Dropped by this place facing the beach for a round of drinks. The place was rustic and quaint. Not too many people around as the timing was off. Staff was generally helpful . It was a warm and humid afternoon so we just had some drinks as we didn't feel like eating. Open air so only the sea breeze to... More

The place gets pretty during and after sunset, given this is right on the beach. The music is really good. Anyone who's avoiding pork, it might be a challenge to find a variety of food options. We were in a rush since we had a bus to catch. Requested a takeaway and later figured out they screwed up 3 out... More

Marbers is a great stop when you're looking for reasonable prices and friendly staff. The food is average but they give good portion sizes and always with a smile. It's a nice spot to sit with a San Miguel and people watch.

We checked out Marber's restaurant and expected a bit more. THe menu has countless pages, which include everything you can think of. THerefore the quality of the dishes obviously can't be kept up with. Filipino dishes, Pizza, Pasta, german dishes, etc.. and way too many of all categories!

Three stars is the average between the four stars of noodles with vegetables (very yummy), and two stars of the French fries, not good at all. Normal prices and service. Bonus, you're eating at the same sand, five meters to the sea.

Nice place to have a drink and eat a meal. Food is ok. Prices are reasonable, about the same as the other places on the beach, and definitely cheaper than the seafood places right next to it. Friendly staff. Pool table in the back, 50peso per game.

I didn't even bother to correct this order payed and left. Second time I ordered a brew coffee. I got a French press one quarter full, no sugar,... More

The German owner of the bar can often be found slinging shots behind the bar. He's chatty and fun. The drinks are fairly priced and the offerings include imported German beer amongst the usual San Miguel brews. We didn't try the food, but portions seemed fair and dishes looked good for pub/bar food - not overly high end. Definitely a... More
