Where to EAT in BATANES: Bunker's Cafe at Naidi Hills, Basco Batanes

Restaurants in BATANES

An awesome way to end our first day in Batanes is to savor on a sumptuous dinner at Bunker's Cafe. As the name suggests, it's used to be a bunker during the American occupation which was converted into a cozy restaurant. Obviously, one of the best things about Bunker's Cafe is its location. This small restaurant is located in Naidi Hills beside Basco lighthouse; it is closed at day time and only opens at around 6:00 in the the evening. At Bunker's Cafe, diners are treated with the best view of Batanes sunset during dinner time as well as moonlit dining perfect for those romantic dates. So, if you're looking for where to eat in Batanes, check out Bunker's Cafe.

Together with our new-found friends whom we met at the homestay facility where we are staying, we walked for about 20 minutes from Marfel's Lodge to get to Bunker's Cafe. Since reservation is needed to dine here, our food were already prepared when we arrived. Guests can choose to dine inside or outside the restaurant where a few tables were set up. We chose the latter for that al-fresco dining experience.

    As I am doing my itinerary, I texted bunker cafe and it did not answer. I asked our Tryk Driver Guide and he said the establishment had already been closed for a while. :(
