Restaurant Review: Silangang Nayon Park and Restaurant (Pagbilao, Quezon)

Silangang Nayon Park and Restaurant

This popular destination and quiet retreat, located 6.5 kms. (a 25-min. drive from Lucena City) from the Maharlika Highway in Pagbilao, was opened in 2003 with just one seaside cottage.  

Today, it has a cozy park with a  main restaurant overlooking Tayabas Bay, Pagbilao Grande and Patayan Island; dining cottages nestled along the edge of cliffs on the mainland (another two, beside the main restaurant, are also connected to the bridge), function hall; a mini-zoo and a children's playground.  
The amazing, boat-shaped restaurant is connected to the mainland by a long footbridge with a sturdy  foundation of concrete stilts.  Oysters, served as part of the menu, are grown along the stilts.

Dining cottage
Aside from the very affordable and great tasting Filipino and Chinese seafood dishes it serves, it is also a very nice place to view the sunrise and feel the cool sea breeze.  
Its unique way of delivering cooked food from the main kitchen/grilling area to the restaurant  is an attraction by itself. Instead of the waiters carrying the meals along the walkways and the bridge, food is delivered via a helicopter-shaped dumbwaiter running along a steel cable.

They also have a bed and breakfast, on top of a cliff and overlooking the sea, with affordable room rates: PhP2,500 (good for 2-4 persons with free breakfast for 2), Php4,000 ( good for 8 persons with free breakfast for 4).  

Each spacious, clean airconditioned cottage has a TV and a private bath with hot and cold shower.
The mini-zoo is home to deer, some pheasants, ostriches, chickens, a monkey. a hawk. a falcon, a very huge iguana and a horse.  The resort also offers boat trips or kayaking to Patayan Island Puting Buhangin Beach and Kwebang Lampas.
