Where to eat in Batanes?

Dining out in Batanes is pretty tricky. You either need to pre-order first to save you time from waiting or you have to reserve prior, otherwise, the restaurant might be closed. I don't know if this is applicable in peak season but I went there last week of November 2010. I don't think that's a low season.

You can see below the places we tried and what food we order. Check out the Facebook like icon "http://img709.imageshack.us/img709/1220/thumbsupfacebooklike.jpg" to know if it's recommended.

Fundacion Pacita

Want to eat at Fundacion Pacita? Call them up for reservations. If you're not a guest of Fundacion Pacita, you can't enter their premises. But if you dine there... you can! :) They have an excellent view of the Batan island cliffs. From there, you can hear the waves from below.

Casa Napoli Pizza (Batanes)

This place has the best restaurant ambiance in the entire island! Yes, it's small but, it's cozy and romantically-lit with santorini-like accents.
