We heard a lot about Giddy's Place, so E and I decided we'd have lunch there after our Butanding Encounter. It is about five-minute tricycle-ride from AGM Beachfront Resort where we were staying. It is located in the center of town and is a few steps away from the market.
Giddy's Place is a hotel. It looks quite charming from the outside, what with its pink walls and pretty little packets of garden infront. Their resto has an entire wall of a picture of a butanding, wooden tables and chairs, and a bar.
It has a dive pool and is open for diving lessons. Their rooms have WiFi and cable TV. And just beside the resto is a spa.

E and I had such a hearty lunch at Giddy's. The food was delightful and delicious. Although this shrimp dish wasn't what I expected, it was a pleasant surprise.
E ordered this Thai chicken and she loved it. We both had fresh mango juice which we both liked. E had coffee and we shared a plate of mango crepe.
Sadly, I didn't like the mango crepe. Too much gooey mango syrup. And a strawberry ice cream with it was just too weird. Apparently, they ran out of vanilla ice cream.
We spent almost Php1000 for this meal. Some people say it's quite pricey. Others say it isn't so bad. I don't know. What I know is that E and I don't mind paying for things that make us happy. :D And we did enjoy the food (except for the crepe) at Giddy's.
Giddy's Bar and Resto opens at 6am and closes at 1am the following day.
