Went here for lunch, Ordered the Chicken Inasal, Pork Sisig, Halo Halo. The Chicken Inasal looked Sad and unappetizing, my cousin said that it did not taste like Inasal but rather more of Adobo, the Sisig was quite good, the Halo Halo was Refreshing. Overall it was a Good Lunch, served by friendly and attentive servers plus the amazing Beach Ambience of Lio.
Staff are reasonably friendly. Ordered happy hour cocktails, barely any alcohol in them although they did taste nice. Ordered the nachos. They had something bright orange I think was meant to resemble cheese but it was hard to tell. The tortilla chips were stale. I wouldn’t bother visiting again. The views of the beach are the only thing that make it worthwhile.
Cannot understand the negative reviews here! We ate here NINE times sampling several dishes and never got sick! Identifying exactly which food(s) caused the poisoning is VERY difficult given that we all eat at 2-4 places by the time symptoms appear! By ANY standard, their salads are excellent as is their BBQ pork, chicken dishes, tofu dish, etc. Shakes are also quite good. I'm not a big drinker/alcoholic so cannot speak to cocktails but other reviewers seem to like them.
Didn’t order food but I had a coffee and two whiskey sours that were very good and price was ok too. Wife had a shake that was more like a slushy but it was refreshing.
WARNING: I got food/water poisoning from Lio Beach from one of three places: Punta Playa (mixed croquettes, mixed Paella), Liam’s (lime daiquiri), or Manille Beach Bar (nachos) + service water at all three. The food at Manille’s was subpar - the cheese on the nachos was cold and my husband’s garlic shrimp pasta only came with a few tiny shrimp. Do yourself a favor and don’t drink the service water or ice anywhere even if you’re told it’s purified and be careful with mixed/blended drinks!
