Things to be aware of:

  • There are no bookings at Mosa Restaurant Bohol, so prepare to wait. We grabbed a seat at the bar and had a few scoops as we waited. It’s beautiful so hardly a chore: as you can see from  my nine-year-old below,
  • There is nothing else around it, so don’t expect to walk there from the buzzing Alona area, or exit lunch/dinner and pop next door to do something else. It’s quite isolated.
  • MOSA Restaurant Bohol now accepts cash and credit cards, so ignore any other messaging of cash-only.

Mosa Restaurant Bohol Chicken Platter

CHIMI and POLO. Tow Mediterranean inspired roast chickens, with roasted root veggies. 

PHP 899: ~ USD $16.10

Simply delicious. I love the concept of two flavours and two sauces with this MOSA dish. One was very Mediterranean (on the left) and the other very much curry flavoured, akin to a Coronation Chicken Curry. Spanking. Super-moist too. Really good, and highly recommended by ISLIFEARECIPE.net.

Mosa Restaurant Panglao Braised Rib

Golden Pot Roast. Slow-cooked beef plate, marinated with herbs and served with roasted roots and mashed beetroot.

PHP 599: ~ USD $10.74 (BARGAIN!!!)

Yeah, this was good. Although one little complaint, a little dry, just a little. Still very tasty, and with that beetroot puree and some rock salt (yes it needed seasoning) was killer. Plus, I love the gold leaf touch on the top – food theatre on steroids.

Mosa Restaurant Panglao Big Steak Rib and Marrow

CaveMan Steak. Slow-cooked oven-grilled beef shank, with truffle and wild mushroom cream. Served with grilled corn and mushrooms.

PHP 999: ~ USD $17.90

Yeah, this one I missed out on. But the feedback wasn’t massively positive from the Wife and kids: very chewy with lots of silver skin ( which is impossible to eat). The flavour was good though, as in the truffle sauce, especially with some of the bone marrow. Maybe we’d give this one a miss next time.

Mosa Restaurant Panglao Empenadas

Calzone Bites. Calzone bread filled with beef and spices with Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese inside.

PHP 325: ~ USD $5.83

WOOF!!! My absolute favourite today. These are up there with the very best Empanadas I have ever eaten. The pastry was killer, crunchy, and chewy all in one with a lovely salty overtone. This is the must-try here. INvrecible food. #BeProudMosa

Mosa Restaurant Panglao Bruschetta

Quatro Bruschetta. A slice of bread toasted in the oven or grilled often rubbed with garlic and topped with extra virgin olive oil, tomatoes, and salt in four different flavours.

PHP 325: USD $5.82

Sorry guys another bit of a miss for me. It sort of tasted like cheap Hawaiin Pizza. I kind of didn’t get it, or I missed the point altogether sorry… Now, some toasted Anchovies with this would have been killer, to add some saltiness, depth, and umami. Just sayin’: Have a look HERE

Mosa Restaurant Mocktail with Popsicle

Orange Bubbly. Orange juice, Kiwi jam, lemon soda, Calamansi, lemon syrup, garnished with an orange ice pop.

PHP 219: ~ USD $3.92

Mosa Restaurant Mocktail with Teddy Bear

Bear-Y Bliss Smoothie. Comes with mango and strawberry jam flavour fresh milk, and fructose, topped with diced mango fruit, mango boba, and mango bear.

PHP 258: ~ USD $4.62

My little monkey finally grows into his Cat Taco shirt, which is ideal to be standing and posing next to the surfboards on display at MOSA Bohol.
