10 Fintastic Seafood Restaurants to Give a Go Around the Metro
Surrounded by large bodies of water, the Philippines is not only an ideal place for swimming and diving but also a good place to try various kinds of seafood.
Here’s a list of some of the restaurants specializing in seafood perfect for those on a meatless diet or those craving for a fresh round of seafood:
What better way to start the list than with a classic? Ask anyone for a good seafood place in the metro, and Dampa would most likely be the first answer you’ll get. Dampa gives diners a chance to shop for seafood from their own wet market and lets them decide how they want it cooked.

We’ve been hit with eat-all-you-can restaurants lately, but here’s something for the certified seafood lover. Originally from Cebu, Isla Sugbu is the first and only unlimited seafood paluto in the country. The original rate per head is Php 1,300, but you can enjoy a discounted rate of Php 848 or Php 888 until May 31, 2019.
Dubbed as a modern-day Dampa restaurant, Market Basket is also a seafood paluto place located along River Park in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Its interior is also something worth noting as it exudes a truly sofishticated vibe.
Address: River Park, Festival Mall, Filinvest City, Muntinlupa City
