food was great but the price quite expensive (iced tea pitcher costs 253 And was too concentrated). 128528
i guess the excess price is for the ambience...

Place is really cool and food is great. It's a must stop over if you're traveling to Baguio, that is if you're not using SCTEX.

Dining with family should come with three key elements: ambiance, wonderful staff, and delicious food. In my opinion, Isdaan offers all.

Isdaan is a fun place to eat with family and friends. Once entering, you are surrounded by statues that are fun, that won't make children bored going to family outings. You dine in a nipa hut, surrounded by water to give a lovely and lively provincial feel. It's a one of a kind establishment.

Isdaan serves traditional Filipino food. Not only do they serve seafood, but they, too serve a variety of dishes consisting of beef, pork and chicken. You can even have a boodle fight to make it more fun.

I won't get into specifics on the food they serve, because it will take more than one post to cover what I had. All I will say that what I had, seafood, beef, pork, and chicken dishes were delicious and true to traditional Filipino home cooking. No need adding fancy stuff on these dishes. 128513

But what I will speak on is their halo-halo. Just look at the photo! In the hot weather we've been receiving lately, this was the perfect dessert to finish off our meal. The sweetness was perfect. You're able to taste all the ingredients and well as feel the different textures put into this dessert. And the flan in the halo-halo? WOW! It's smooth, rich, and very delicate. It was was very well executed.

To experience a place like Isdaan is one of a kind. It's a perfect place to enjoy the company of your friends and family and overall have a fun time.

Happy eating!!!

Went to Manaoag to guve thanks for all the blessings that my family received128522. My dad was thinking on where to eat lunch and I remenbered Isdaan which was featured recently. I was pretty much amazed with their floating restaurant! Overly nice decors. My dad kept on saying that thier kare-kare tastes like my Grandma's kare kare128522. It was peanut-y and delicious! We also ordered plain Bulalo, liempong Tinupig and Lumpiang Jalapeño. Everything is delicious. Their rice is 63php. Hahaha ang mahal ng kanin!! But I think its good for 2 persons.

After attending mass at Manaoag, we decided to had lunch here..

The food was just average a bit pricey to be honest!

Service was not that quick

Receiving area was quite crowded and seems like they are not that organized

The highlight would be the area where you can throw away plates/cups (5php each)

This is a late post.

Last October 4 (my birthday), we celebrated here. We ordered seafood bilao, sinigang na hipon, nilagang gulay with bagoong, and sizzling gambas. All of them are very yummy and tastes good!

The place is very cozy. You will eat in the floating nipa hut. ;) and some of the waiters are serenading you in while eating. And they sang happy birthday to me! So happy that time.

There are also lot of adventures in here. Like tacshapo wall. Boating. Crossing the one kilo bridge and more.

Though the taste of food improved, the service still sucks. They now have this light thingy, to catch the attention of the servers but unfortunately it did not help. There was also a huge rodent running in our kubo (dinning area). We waited for 40 minutes for the food to be served, and kept asking for the appetizer to be served immediately. Guess what, the appetizer came when we finished eating. You could also see part of the restaurant which is deteriorating. I think it's best if they close the restaurant for a while and renovate the place and find a way to improve its service.

The place is really nice. Lots of things to do especially the Tacsiyapo Wall where you can throw plates at a wall with different descriptions. :) The food tastes good but it's a bit pricey for me. The staffs were attentive enough but service was kinda slow. But I would definitely go back. :)

The fabulous place did not make up for the sucky service. Yes, the place is undeniably beautiful but the service was underwhelming. The server doesn't look happy at all, he looks bored or sea sick maybe because of the floating restaurant/hut. The food was okay, nothing worth writing about. Service was slow128078128078/ Place 128077128077/ Food 128078128076.

When I posted this picture in my FB account, many of my friends asked me if I'm in Thailand, and I said sa Isdaan lang yan.
Yes, it is!

This is my second visit in this floating restaurant and admittedly, I never saw this statue before. Well, I saw the one with the bell where you can make a wish and pull it's handle. But there are 3 Buddha figures out there and we discovered this in our last visit.

Kids love the place because of many statues, I want to describe it as a theme park not a restaurant. Nothing is so special with their food except for the Tinupig na Manok and very expensive especially the rice.

Since this was featured in many travel/magazine shows in our local channels, which made it very popular to the travelers from and going to the North. Guests are over pouring especially during long weekends and holidays, however good service is being sacrificed and most of the time they are more focused on singing than prioritizing to serve our orders.

Who would also forget the tacsyapo wall? Angry and want to release it? This is the perfect place for you, from mugs to TV, you can throw it all in the wall as long as you will pay for it. Haha.
Some friends who tried it said, it did helped them release their anger, some even said they cried after and felt relief.

If you will travel to North, this is a place you shouldn't miss! A good place for stop over.

This place in Gerona Tarlac will definitely catch your attention. Isdaan, the word that sits tall infront of humongous statues at the front of the resto per se. The place is unique because you will need to sit at a floating bahay kubo in a man made pond filled with Tilapia (if im not mistaken) . The menu is very expensive. Define expensive Filipino cuisine. I wouldn't recommend this to people who are just after a quick stop over from a roadtrip To/from North. There is an area in the vicinity of Isdaan where they call taksiyapo. Best for people who have issues. Because You get the chance to throw mugs and plates without having to clean up after or get scolded by your mom.

Not your ordinary floating restaurant! Ready your camera cause It's like a theme park with kubos floating on fish ponds! I could say its a child-friendly restaurant as well because children can feed the fish and they have acrobatic shows, magic, singing waiters etc. life vests were given for little ones cause some ponds were 6-9 ft deep. They also have massage service (for 150 Php) while waiting for the food!

FOOD: I like the Karekare, Bulalo, and Pancit (Canton noodles), Sisig na Isda! They also have large serving of rice wrapped in a banana leaf.

SERVICE: A bit slow maybe because of the fact that their place is big and our kubo was far from their kitchen.

PRICE: Yes, it's pricey. Dishes start from 260 but they're generous on each serving.

Best to go around 5pm onwards if you want to see their lightings and shows. Remember the lyrics of your fave song for a chance to have 1 kilo of free fish! :)) Try also their famous tacsyapo!

worst dining experience ever. plates, utensils, glasses, everything was incomplete. we waited an hour and a half for our food. yes, we're that patient. everything was placed at our table except for the rice. our server (which happened to be the third person assisting our table) told us that the rice is still getting cooked. we had to wait for another 20 minutes. makes you want to shout like a crazy person in the middle of the "floating" thing. there was no organization at all. nothing special about the food. the seafood bilao was entirely over-fried, crabs weren't fresh, iced tea was too sweet, oh the pinakbet ilocos was good (at least). after we had everything placed at our table, we immediately asked for our bill. and of course, it took them 10 minutes. we just wanted to get out, it's that horrible. in the end, most of the tables had their red light blinking and you can feel the rage of the hungry customers just by looking at it. i am not exaggerating. the server at the next table cried, i don't want to go into further details. isdaan was amazing 3-4 years ago, i don't know what happened but they seriously have to fix it. will never, ever go back.
