The name Isla Sugbu comes from the local name of Cebu, giving tribute to the place of the restaurant’s origins.

So how exactly does “Paluto-All-You-Can” work?

First, choose from Isla Sugbu’s fresh and live seafood selection what you’re craving for.

And what a selection it is! Take your pick: fresh fish such as kingfish, lapu-lapu, tuna, salmon, pompano and more; and other marine bounty such as scallop, crabs, squid, shrimp, octopus and a whole lot more.
