Floating bar & restaurant in Valenzuela City

In December 2020, Valenzuela City revealed its “best-kept secret” to the public – Tagalag Fishing Village, an expansive fishing site that now has a park, boardwalk, and several restaurants ranging from casual to formal.

For those looking for a unique, romantic, formal dining spot in the metro, the fishing village also has the floating bar and restaurant The Fisherman’s Point serving course meals not limited to seafood dishes.

The Fisherman’s Point at Tagalag Fishing Village serves a 3-course lunch and a 6-course dinner.

You can get appetizers such as salmon tartare drizzled with sesame oil, chili oil, and topped with mango, and tuna tataki – seared tuna on a salad of summer vegetables.

Meanwhile, their beef and seafood entree selections include pan-seared rib-eye and creamy French lobster thermidor cooked in a rich wine sauce.

The floating bar and restaurant also serves classic desserts such as tiramisu and creme brulee to top off an excellent meal.

There’s also an al fresco rooftop area if you’re not too keen on dining indoors due to the pandemic.

At night, there are also lights that make the place look magical, so it’s no surprise that it’s become a popular spot for wedding proposals.

If you and your date are looking for something a little more casual, go to the nearby Alvarez Park Cafe.

The cafe offers dampa-style dining which lets you select live seafood from their aquariums and choose a cooking style. This gives you comfort dishes such as sweet and sour fish and salted egg crabs.

There’s also more to do at Tagalag Fishing Village besides dining at restaurants – so you can spend several hours in the area and have a fun-filled day.

You can go around the fish pond in a boat or a kayak, or rent a fishing rod and catch your own fish. They have 40 fishing stations spanning the 10-hectare fishing area.
