Awesome rasta vibes and great food

Very clearly labelled menu with vegan and vegetarian dishes that are mostly Filipino with some burgers, mushroom shawarma, and pesto pasta. The vegan gyozas are nice and the pakvet (indigenous dish from northern Philippines) was delicious. Cocktails were also nice (the rumhansi made with calamansi and rum is very refreshing). Love the decor and music!

Pros: Lots of clearly labelled vegan dishes, Delicious food, Chill rasta ambiance

Food was oke. Music and personel could be much better

Food was nice. Philipino dishes, curry. Don’t order the rice with tofu. Very boring. The guys who where working there didn’t speak english very well. It was a quite night but the food took way to long. It said reggea bar but they played very loud rock music. I wouldn’t come back here.
The menu was very chaotic😅

Amazing vegan Filipino food!

I loved the Aubergine omelette(I can’t remember the Filipino name) it was so tasty. I ordered a side aswell to takeaway as the portion sizes were small but it’s not expensive so that was fine. I did have to wait a while for my food but it was worth it

Grading on a curve...

It's nice to have a menu where I can choose freely, though it's quite a large menu and some decision paralysis starts to set in 😅

The food generally is okay, I wouldn't make a deliberate trip for this but it's fine.

I suppose the worst thing, really, is how long the food takes to arrive - if it's a busy night, be prepared to wait at least 1.5 hrs.

The non-vegans didn't enjoy it much at all, if that helps to know the type of menu 🙈😅

Killer views and vibe, ok food

Ala-e Hippie House has one of the best views in town to watch the harbor and a sunset. It’s got a through and through hippie vibe too.

Both of these come at some minor inconveniences: a bit of a walk from the town center and ticketing furniture and stairs.

The servers and knowledgeable and friendly, but at least the one thing I ordered wasn’t nearly as good as I imagined it would be based on the reviews.

Waited a long time, had no tofu...

I liked the vibe in here, very hippy feel, and obviously lots of vegan options - very rare for Philippines. But I waited a long time to get a menu, never mind get served. When they finally came to take my order, what I ordered was not available, they had "no tofu", which considering 50% of the options on the menu had tofu in them, was very frustrating. Would have been nice to be told up front. The food itself was ok, but a little boring and quite small portions. Shame.

Get the tofu sisig!

We ate here twice. The mushroom shawarma is nice but more a lunch option. The second time we went we shared the cauli-oli with mushroom gravy then had the tofu sisig and plant based chicken burger. It was all SO tasty!!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Delicious , Very cool vibe

Must-visit while in Coron!

This place is awesome for vegans and vegetarians alike. The menu is huge, really cheap and delicious, plus the hosts are lovely and the vibe is super cool! The only cons are that the food can sometimes take a while to be made - particularly during busy times/when you come with lots of people (burgers come out much faster). Still a must-visit in Coron!

Pros: Huge and delicious menu, Great prices, Lovely hosts

Cons: Food can take a while to arrive

Good food with a chilled vibe

Loved the vibe and really friendly staff. The staff told us about every meal in the menu. Some of the items werent available.
We didint have to wait too long and the service was fast.

Liked how the staff really seemed to know what is vegan. I asked for the calamansi juice and they told me it has honey. As a vegan of course I cant eat honey so I got the juice without honey. They also made everything for me vegan, changing mayo to hummus etc.

Food was good and overall a good experience, would go again.

Pros: Many vegan options, Good price

Cons: Some items in the menu aren't available

Vibe 10/10. Food 6/10.

Was really nice just to sit in this place and escape the stress of travelling and the Philippines for a second. Food could be better but was enjoyable and not bad.

Bad service

This place is on a hill so don’t make the mistake of walking here in the midday heat like we did 😅
Once we arrived we were told to take a seat upstairs with a really nice view.
However we sat there for about 20 minutes before we were told that we couldn’t order any food, we would have to wait 1hr 30 mins for the chef to come back. They offered us to stay and wait and enjoy the view but we decided to leave as we were hungry.
Disappointed they seated us and let us look through the menu and wait before telling us they weren’t serving food at 1:30pm.
I guess they hoped we would stay as it’s a long walk.
Can’t say we will go back again, as nothing on the menu jumped out at us anyway :/

Food not fresh, slow service

We literally waited for one hour to get our food even though there were just a few customers. And the tofu in the curry is stinky, the other noodle dish is just too salty. We never got the water we asked for.

Cool vibe

The place was awesome and has a lot of potential! They could probably invest in a few more fans to keep the place cooler though. I ordered sweet and sour tofu which was sooooo good but it was literally just tofu, no rice or veggies as you would expect. My friend ordered stir fry veg and same thing- no rice. But we combined our meals and ordered a plate of rice and all was quite tasty!

Amazing sunset eatery

Great food, clean and gorgeous hippy vibe. Recommend the sweet and sour tofu - it’s sat for two but I’d get it for 1 and add some rice!

Great vibes, good food

We had lunch here on a hot day in the off season. The staff were lovely and the view from the little mezzanine was great. The had Pink Floyd playing and the old Wizard of Oz on with no sound. Very relaxed/weed-smoking related theme. The nachos were good but they include mayo and cheese. My mate was very happy with his beef burger.

Pros: Fresh, tasty food, Good vibes, Great view

Cons: Don’t list all ingredients for each dish

Vegan menu but food is not great

There is a separate menu of vegetarian options, many of which are vegan, but the food was not great. Homemade and not with much skill. The place also smelt pretty bad, although it had been raining.

Pros: Several vegetarian options, most vegan

Cons: Poor food

Nice place!

They have 2 menus, one veggie/vegan and one with meat on it. The place is very nicely decorated and has an awesome view on the ocean. We spent a rainy afternoon there and I really liked the tofu curry. On the menu it said „good for 2 people“, but the portion was good for one hungry human. Recommended to check out this place!

Pros: Own veggie menu, nicely decorated, good view

Cons: Small portions, Long wait for food

Vegan options, great vibes!

According to the owner the cosy place/restaurant is currently in the process of removing its meat dishes (while still keeping fish). They happily created a vegan dish for me, just talk to the owner or his partner (the chef), as the staff might not be familiar with the term vegan. And a plus for musicians: Join them for a jam session! Highly recommended! Good people..
