Situated on Alona Beach, Hayahey Restaurant is said to serve the island's best pizzas. Choose between a thin or thick crust and between chowing down by the beach or in the comfort of the restaurant. If you want something other than pizza, the fresh seafood is also very good and reasonably priced.

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.
- Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to late
