OKEANOS MOALBOAL REVIEW: Good Vibes & Great Food

Feb 14, 2021 | Philippines

Okeanos Moalboal

Okeanos Moalboal is funky little cafe in the heart of Panagsama, known for its vibrant atmosphere and ultimate good vibes. What was once just a little hotel has since expanded to include a cafe, attracting day visitors and overnighters alike. Since we were staying at an airbnb just down the road, we decided to swing by for dinner one night to see what all the hype was about, and we were not disappointed!

WHERE IS OKEANOS MOALBOAL

Talk about prime location! Okeanos Moalboal is right on Panagsama Road, the main strip in Moalboal where all the action happens. It’s just a few hundred metres from Panagsama Beach and the famous Moalboal sardine run, so it makes a great to eat before or after a snorkel.

GOOD VIBES AT OKEANOS MOALBOAL

The first thing you’ll notice (because it’s hard not to notice!) is the colourful and psychedelic murals painted everywhere. The bright furniture, fairy lights and tasteful use of hardwood elicits nothing but good vibes, from the moment you step inside.

GREAT FOOD AT OKEANOS MOALBOAL

Of course, good vibes will only get you so far in a restaurant review! Luckily, the food at Okeanos Moalboal is just as good, if not better, than the ambience! They have a strong focus on Greek cuisine, but if that’s not your thing don’t worry, their menu is extensive. You can check out the full menu here. They also do unlimited wings with fries and ice tea on select evenings for P249 or $5 USD! What a steal.

MIDSCALE: ADAM’S VIEW HOTEL

Simple but with all the amenities and facilities you need – including a massive pool – Adam’s View Hotel is our top pick for those looking for a little more luxury than a backpackers. Located in the main town, Adam’s View Hotel is right next to Gaisano Mall, but still close enough to the action of Panagsama Beach to remain convenient.

LUXURY: TURTLE BAY DIVE RESORT

If you have deep pockets and an appreciation for the finer things in life, Turtle Bay Dive Resort is the place for you. Tucked away on a private cove in the quieter part of town, this luxury resort is perfect for couples looking for a little exclusivity.

AIRBNB: LRS APARTMENT

We can personally attest to how great LRS Apartment is, having spent two weeks there. Aside from a beautiful private pool, the apartment itself is modern, well furnished and spacious enough for a couple. (And a cat!) It’s just a 5 minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the restaurants and bars along Panagsama Road, but far enough away to offer a little peace and quiet. We can’t recommend LRS Moalboal enough!
