Lab-as Seafood Restaurant

Top choice seafood in Dumaguete

Loud and lively, this Dumaguete institution has expanded from a small seafood restaurant in 1988 to a diverse culinary, drinking and entertainment complex that includes Hayahay and Taco Surf (you can order from any of three menus). Tanks of fresh seafood are on hand, and there's a steakhouse and sushi bar. It's a one-stop evening, and it's all well done.

Sizzling blue marlin, do-it-yourself Korean grill and Dumaguete express (fish, shrimp, squid sautéed with coconut and topped with crispy lechón) are especially recommended.
