My wife and I live in Puerto Princesa for nine years. We know perfectly the Tiki Bar, as all locals here. It is almost the only place to go out on the night in Puerto Princesa. Usually, it is a good place for listening music...and dancing. For single foreigners, it is a good place to meet girls who usually are prostitutes. For them also, it is also the unique place to find customers. Everybody knows that here. It is not a problem to enjoy of time there. But, on April 28, 2022, around 11 p.m. that place became the hell on Earth. At two tables from ours, began a bloody fight. A man used a long knife (about 25 cm long) and stabbed a foreigner on the left in his stomach. First there was no blood, but when the guy removed his bloody knife from the belly of the foreigner, the blood squirt on the dance floor. Then, another foreigner has been stabbed in the throat, like a slaughtered sheep. His blood squirted on 3 meters and my wife got blood on her shoes! We were stunned looking at the crime scene. Ambulances and police came to the place and removed the bodies. There was blood everywhere on the ground, and my wife took pictures of it. She was very shocked to discover that blood was like jelly under his feet.More

It is a sad and very bad place. The band takes requests from the audience for a money. They took our money but didn’t sing the song. So we weren’t happy and for that got beat up infront of the bar by emplyees and locals....Just save yourself a hustle and don’t go there!More

We had fun watching the band and drinking. The atmosphere was good and the area was clean. There were many lady boys bothering us to dance with them and take pictures with us. Also, we had to pay entrance, pay for the band to play...our requested songs and when we were leaving the bouncers asked for a tip (no idea why) Anyway, it was a fun night just expected to spend moreMore

This is a lively bar in the centre of Puerto Princesa. The live band / singers were great. Prices are ok as mainly caters to a local crowd. Main issue was with the spirits. I ordered a Absolut Vodka with mixer and they provided some...clear liquid in a glass but definitely wasnt vodka or alcoholic for that matter. I complained to the staff 3 times but they didnt care and I still had to pay for it. (They suggested I pay for another shot, ha!) Could be a regular scam so Id stick to bottled beer thats harder to mess with.More

Just a quick one here, it was a good night. Drinks felt watered down, I had four jack Daniels and coke in just an hour. Didn’t feel it one bit could’ve had another four straight after. The vibe was pretty good with the music decent...enough. Some creep was hanging around the backpackers I was with. Making some uncomfortable gestures to me. The security cane anyway and asked the guy to move away so that was really good. Made the girls feel more comfortable also. We left soon after. I believe it’s one of the best places going around here. Worth a look.More

I ordered calamari and a beer and it took forever. Beer was served after 28 mins and the calamari was served after an hour! What made it worst was the undercooked calamari. Music was very loud too.

Came for a drink post-dinner. Ordered a frozen margarita and it arrived completely liquid with no hint of ice (also it tasted foul). I sent this back, but our waiter argued with me and told me it was icy when it arrived (it wasn’t). The...‘bill’ we asked for was just our waiter telling us the amount owed, no paper in sight. He’d charged for the margarita, argued again with us that it was meant to be watery as customers had complained in the past that they were too icy. He was so persistent and rude that we just paid to end the argument. Also bought us the wrong change- we couldn’t find him and for 35 pesos we couldn’t be bothered so just left. A rip off, rude service and a bartender that can’t make a basic cocktail.More

Crappy place where we walked in and they had a staff meeting so no attention was given and on the way out they asked for a cover charge that was more than the drinks. Drinks were expensive for PH.

Meet up with a couple of people from our island cruise group who we only meet that day. We had such an enjoyable night with a very interactive band who take requests from Rock to Korean pop.they also mingle amongst crowd during breaks. The atmosphere...was very friendly with even the bouncers being helpful (not used to in Australia). Didn’t encounter any negativity and we all had a great night that sadly had to end at 2am so we could have a brief sleep before early flight. TIP: Tuesday night is ladies night with free margarita with entry fee (50 peso). TIP: plenty of fast food outlets a short walk away.More

I have seen kids there, too. I would recommend going before 9pm as that's when the loud music starts. Of course, people will be drinking a lot more at that time. Before then, say around 7pm, it's fairly quiet.
