When you're in Baler, don't miss to try their foods. It's very yummy. We ordered grilled fish (blue marlin) and sinigang na hipon. We went here Saturday night so expect the number and of people dining here. We were seated on the first floor where the grilling is happening. The smell of the grilled foods were very good but after eating here, your clothes smells like grilled fish too. I hope to come back here when I'm in Baler again.

Right after a long tiring day of going around Baler, seeing the different rock formations, beaches, the balete tree, the amazingly beautiful mother falls, and not to mention, the tiring and bumpy (but fun) tricycle ride, we felt like we are entitled to eat anything we want for dinner. My surfer friend suggested we eat here. I've read a lot of good reviews about this place so I agreed. 128513

For sharing, we ordered the following:

Liempo - 150
Yellow Fin Tuna - 250
Garlic Fried Rice - 30/cup

When they served us the Tuna and Liempo, we were all surprised with how generous and big the serving size for both. Look how big the tuna was, sobra na sa paper plate! 128563 We liked both the liempo and tuna. Typical inihaw na liempo and tuna. Very malasa and sarap isawsaw sa toyo w calamansi and sili! 128557128525128076šŸ¼

My other friends ordered the Beef Pares and Longsilog which costs around 60-80 pesos lang. Hindi lang mura, masarap pa daw! 128521

Service was just okay. Si Kuya medyo lutang. 128517 But all our orders were served in less than 10 minutes.

Lastly, it's best to eat here at night when you have no plans of going out anymore because after eating here, amoy inihaw ka na. 128514128518 Unless you eat here after surfing in the morning then ligo after. 128521

Poor ventilation - their griller was not well thought out and the whole set up of the place wasn't taken to consideration.
Really slow service given that yes their were a lot of customers but they could have system of making sure the orders were taken right away and informed the customers that there will be a delay or something.
Grilled chicken wasn't warm any more it seemed like it was ordered by another person and decided not to get it anymore.

The beef pares was good.

tried this place since we got curious, 'coz the dining area is situated on a tree top like 2nd floor :) the stair steps are really big (for a petite like me) sound system was okay (makes me wanna move, hahah) food was good too (we had grilled pusit, sisig, pork bbq, nachos --- must try!)

Ordered Bangsilog since I had been craving to have that for breakfast. I ate a bit but too bad, the fish was itchy in my mouth! It was no longer fresh! I did not eat dinner that night (04/21/15). The following day, I had diarrhea! The good thing though, they did not charge me for the food!

Firstly, food was cheap. I recommend the Grilled White Marlin and Grilled Squid. Service is horrible. They have no strategy when it comes to how to handle guests, so do not expect.

Sorry, no photo...

I promised to myself not to rant but... Service is really slooooooooow! It's morning, a few people around for breakfast but it took an hour before bangsilog (milkfish-fried rice-fried egg) got served and for add'l 25 pesos you can have a hot water and sachet of Nescafe Classic 3-in-1.

Someone told me I can ask for a cup of hot water for free and bring my own coffee sachet of choice. I could try this when I get back but, no!!!, because of the slow service.

We spent our first lunch here in yellow fin! Kind of reminds me of the spots we also found in Coron, atmosphere is pretty laid back. Casual grilled dishes.

The Php150 order of the liempo is not your usual good for 1 as it's actually 3 slabs of pork. The yellow fin tuna is ordered half or full - but it's kinda misleading as a "half" means half of the whole side of the tuna - it's 1/4 of the fish. Php250.

The marinade is pretty good, grilling is ok too - not overly done. The rice is served on banana leaves, meals are really for sharing as even the soft drinks is best priced for groups with the 1.5L bottles as the typical order.

We were lucky being one of the first groups, as the entire 2F got full about 10 mins after us. The entire area probably seats 40 folks.

Paid Php575 for 4 of us - cheap for most folks from Manila. Expensive for the locals so tourists are the ones who order the grilled items.

When we attempted to eat at Hungry Surfer for dinner and they told us it woul take an hour to arrive, we go directly to yellow fin.

Super great food, I must say! Love their grilled food! The place tends to get too smoky, hopefully they can install some exhaust (they grill directly under you - you dine at the 2nd floor like a tree house). That doesn't really put me off, hello it's a grill bar so expect smoke all over and expect that you'll smell like bbq afterwards. ;)

Last time I was at Baler, there were no bars at all. There are restaurants and karaoke joints that offer alcoholic drinks but no place that really gives that legit bar feel. Well, now they have Yellow Fin! 127882128123

During our first night, we ordered all of the available cocktail drinks:
LOL - four seasons with alcohol 127775127775127775
Robot robot - coconut juice DAW na wala naman with alcohol 127775127775
Pweeeh! - calamansi with alcohol 128534 sakto yung name! 127775

Though the drinks were not good, we still enjoyed our stay. Or maybe because the drinks had a little more alcohol than it's supposed to. 128111 We also ordered the sisig and it was good. The music was great! We loved the playlist! Service was slow and it was a challenge calling the server's attention because the bar was located at the second floor. But they were all very friendly. At the end of the night, we talked like we've been buddies for life. Haha.

During our second night, we ordered a bottle of JƤgermeister. Bummer because it wasn't chilled so we had to put ice on our glasses. For our pulutan, we ordered the grilled liempo and chicken! Both were good!

Actually, the place was just okay but it is the only bar at Baler so the place gets full very early. 4 stars because of its existence and of course we enjoyed our nights like crazy! Haha.
