There are not many standalone Banaue restaurants and most establishments seem to be attached to the lodges and guesthouses of the town. They tend to offer Filipino staples such as chicken adobo and pork sinanglaw as well as soups (usually from a packet), hamburgers, pasta and sandwiches. All the Banaue restaurants listed here have meals from around US$3.
Many restaurants in Banaue boast fantastic views over the stunning rice terraces and relaxing for an evening with a San Miguel, or perhaps some native rice or sugarcane wine, is a atmospheric way to see out the day. There may not be any real nightlife in Banaue of note, but this is more a place to drink in the breathtaking landscape and gasp at man’s seamless interaction with nature.
