The resto was small, the male owner and another lady server on the counter would insist where you should be seated, they gave us a seat where it was a breath away (literally) from the counter and see through kitchen. We wanted to seat beside...More

What is interesting of Ellen's Tuna Queen the name signifies the abundance of Tuna foods. The grilled panga, the grilled tuna belly and the runa kinilaw are the best sellers od this place. Very fresh.

Simple yet good food. We ordered Kinilaw and Tuna Sisig. Both had salted eggs that added to the dishes' good taste. Dining here is easy on the pocket. The best thing about it was that the owners were hands-on. They were there to personally take...More

Observing our Friday Lenten abstinence, we went to this restaurant for lunch, expecting an all-seafood menu, mostly of tuna. We were mistaken. The menu is Filipino fare but cooked rather well. Special mention goes to their laing which was so creamy and tasty, the only...More
