The best Steaks in Alona Beach are found at Helmut’s Place. Owned and operated by a German expat, it’s naturally primarily a German restaurant and bar. However, you’ll also find fantastic Italian food and tasty sandwiches at this cosy little place on the outskirts of town.

The bar also has a pool table, but watch out for the regulars who play for drinks and have a lot of practise. It’s got a great atmosphere with good music playing, too. Something of an Alona Beach institution, Helmut’s really is a little slice of Germany in the Philippines.
