Seafood By the Bay (Block 1 Lot 5 Waterfront Road, Moon Bay Marina, Subic Bay Freeport Zone)

Seafood By the BayDate visited: May 2013

What we ate:

Sinigang na Maya-Maya, Mixed Vegetables, Fried Shrimps with Chili Sauce, Ensaladang Mangga, Ensaladang Seaweed and Fried Crab with Salt and Pepper

 

Taste = 4.5/5

–          The restaurant style is similar to that of a dampa, where almost all of the ingredients are alive just before cooking. The shrimp dish was very tasty and tasted very fresh, the sinigang soup was very sour (just how I like it) and the two ensaladas were refreshing. The crab tasted sweet and the meat was very fresh but the whole dish was a bit bland. Pairing it with vinegar brought out the best in the crab … yummy!

 

Service = 3.5/5

–          There were moments when the servers had to be reminded several times for our orders. The dishes were also served with long intervals in between. The ensaladas weren’t even served at the same time.

 

Ambience = 4.5/5

–          The temperature around the area was very hot. It was great that the restaurant had multiple air conditioning units and electric fans in the indoor dining area. The place had a welcoming feel and the table spacing was also good. There is a great view of the bay even from the indoor dining area.

 

Value for money = 3.5/5

–          The price was almost twice that of the dampa restaurants in the Macapagal blvd area with similar food quality. I guess that’s the premium you have to pay to get good seafood in the Subic Bay area.
