Drool over Dagsa Restobar

One of the perks of traveling aside from the sceneries and the culture, you get to try the good food! Different places offer a different twist of everything. Your taste buds will meet a new variation of something that you have already tried before or maybe try something new, whichever is applicable.DSC00655

The last time we visited Siquijor, we stumbled upon a native resto bar in San Juan Siquijor. Dagsa is just right across Bruce Resort, the place where we stayed during during our visit.

Dagsa has a chill out vibe, the ambiance makes you want to just relax and enjoy whatever you’ll be getting.. They have this resto bar area if your the solo type who just want to grab a quick beer, if you’re in a group and want to eat together — the filipino way –in one long table, they have the equally native but beautiful dining area as well. My favorite part of the place was the chill out lounge.DSC00658The chill out lounge looks like a bean bag party! You need to go barefootof if you choose to stay on this part of the bar, but going barefoot is not an issue..even with the foreigners, who are the constant customers of the place.

DSC00662DSC00663The staff were very accommodating, we asked them what’s the best package good for 6 and they offered the boodle menu. They said it was only good for 4-5 person, although we still tried it and just planned to order someing else if needed. The food arrived and we can’t even finish everything! The taste was soo good, flavors from one seafood compliments with the other..so I am confident enough that the taste was not the issue for us not to finish everything. We’re not on a diet as well, so I would blame it to the serving size. They are very generous with the serving.

Dagsa Restobar is open from 8AM to 9PM. They also have live acoustic music every evening of Mondays and Thursdays. If you have the chance to visit Siquijor, check out this place and enjoy the good food! If you’ve been to Dagsa, how was your experience? ☺️

    The food looks so inviting and flavourful in this post! I am won over by the decadence of the dishes. It is great that you didn’t need to go too far for a delicious meal with very little hassle! I love the relaxed atmosphere with the bean chairs as well. That is chic in itself.

    Totally agree trying new foods is one of the best things about travelling. The decor looks sensational. Right up my alley and the serving look huge. How handy that it was right near your accomodation.

    This all looks delicious! I love the idea of having a chill space. I’m surprised more places around the world don’t copy the idea.

    Wow, this place exists in Siquijor now? Cool! The last time I was there, which was like 6 or 7 yrs ago, there was hardly anything! There were literally only 2 “bars” (if you could call it that) near the Pier. Now everytime I read or hear about Siquijor, more and more resorts and restaurants are mushrooming! I need to get back there and hopefully, not get too shocked of the changes! Haha! Thanks for sharing!

    The main photo of that mixed dish caught my eye. Yum, it looks delicious. What is it called? Where exactly is Siquijor and how do you get there?

    What a great looking place! Love that it was affordable, generous portions. It always makes me happy when I eat somewhere that leaves me full and feeling like the money I spent was worth it.

    Yum! And great that it was affordable. I’ve definitely heard that portion sizes should be taken to account in the Philippines. I can’t wait until the day I visit and get the chance to sit on one of those comfy bean bag chairs!

    […] Dagsa Restobar. Right across Bruce Resort is a great restaurant buzzed by a lot of tourists on the island. The place has a combination of somewhat Mexican and Filipino vibe. They’re famous for their native and seafood dishes served any time of the day. […]

    Too bad I thought I’d end up in Siquijor this October. I end up on a Legazpi trip. Anyway, hopefully, I get to go to Siquijor soon. I would love to try this restobar and hang out at the lounge. I also love seafood boodles. How was the food price?

    Seriously, would want to visit Siquijor because of that Resto Bar. I love to try the bean bag, seems so comfy. And of course, love the food. It is also comforting to know that the staff are accommodating.
