This pirate-themed restaurant in Subic will let you enjoy eating by the sea on a whole new level. Everything inside Pirates Bistro is an allusion to all things pirate and adventurous.

A station for hungry pirates.
Even the food offered at Pirates Bistro is fit for mighty pirates. If you’re not a pirate but got a roaring appetite of one, then you would certainly enjoy Pirates Bistro! Their dishes are all cleverly named after pirate characters and places. Take for instance one of their best sellers, Captain Teague’s, named after Jack Sparrow’s father who’s also a notorious pirate in the Caribbean.

Captain Teague’s is a big serving of baby back ribs smoked and glazed with barbecue sauce, crunchy chicken wings, and mixed seafood on a wooden platter. It is served with your choice of four side dishes: plain rice, garlic rice, coleslaw and/or potato chips. Captain Teague’s meal can feed a hungry crew of three to five persons.

The Shipwreck Cove is another reference to a location in the Pirates of the Carribean movie. Pirates Bistro’s interpretation of Shipwreck Cove takes on a form of a taco-style pizza, loaded with beef, vegetable toppings, and gooey cheese.

Gotta love all those toppings!
Their Pirate King, meanwhile, will make all nacho lovers go arr! Looking like a cake that pirates would certainly approve, the Pirate King is a big pile of nachos that looks much like a pie. It’s topped with sour cream sauce, chili con carne, and different types of cheese, with the salsa sitting at the center.

Other highly recommended items are Calypso, a pasta dish with assorted seafood in pesto sauce, and Wicked Wench, Pirates Bistro’s own version of Oreo cheesecake.

Wicked Wench (Php 129)
Here at Pirates Bistro, you’ll regret nothing—ever. That’s what Captain Jack Sparrow would say!
