Restaurants & Bars Near Hayahay

A number restaurants, sari-saris, and roadside vendors line the streets as you head north towards Hayahay.  Chris Fil’s Lodge is just a short walk from all of the action.  This is a great place to catch the cool ocean breeze and look out on one of the best views in town.  

Dishes available at the restaurants in on this strip range from the cheap snacks that any local student could afford to the extravagant.  The restaurants in the Hayahay complex are probably the best known in the area with new options that seem to appear all the time.  

Live bands play every night at Hayahay featuring some of the best in local talent.  On weekends you’ll also find live mostly acoustic performances at Azul Restaurant and Lounge just down the street.  Azul tends to have a more youthful crowd and has a really hip modern decor that you won’t find anywhere else in town. 

Trikes to Chris Fil's Lodge

It can be difficult finding trikes out the area and at times you will be asked to pay P20 or a special trip because it lies outside of the central Dumaguete business district.  Remember these guys will have to drive back downtown without passengers most of the time so this arrangement makes sense but can eat into your daily budget.  

Other notable places to stay strip of Flores Avenue are JJ Hoteliers on the opposite end near downtown Dumaguete and Ornamental Lodge just down the street.  The only thing we could really find out about this hotel and other on Piapi Beach was a reference to Ornamental Lodge and this scary picture.  Foreign tourist just in town for a short stay may want to take a closer look at hotels downtown or the budget pension houses we have listed on this website.
