Kapitan Gimmo in Quezon City Takes You to the Seafood Capital of the PH
Taste the fresh flavors of the sea right in the middle of Quezon City as Kapitan Gimmo brings you unlimited seafood feast straight from the proud province of Capiz—the Seafood Capital of the Philippines.
With a tagline “Namit Gid, Langga”, an Ilonggo phrase that translates to “Isn’t is delicious, love?”, Kapitan Gimmo will make you love seafood even more with their unlimited seafood priced for as low as Php 599.
Not to mention that they are known as the pioneer of the eat-all-you-can food scene in Fairview, Quezon City.
Kapitan Gimmo has fresh and mouthwatering seafood platters available in their entrees, like shrimp, crabs, scallops, oysters, mussels, among others.
They also have unlimited shrimp for Php 599 and unlimited seafood with crabs for Php 799.
If you think the eat-all-you-can is too much for you or your group, you may opt to have their ala carte dishes, which are as delectable, like a plate of their Garlic Butter Shrimp (Php 258).
