After Cagsawa Ruins, me and my niece ventured out to Sibid-Sibid Restaurant located at Bonot, Legazpi City. Sibid-Sibid is a full service restaurant that serves seafoods and traditional pinoy dishes at very reasonable prices. Love the ambiance of the place built by local fishermen.
We had fresh coconut, Bicol Express Seafood, Pancit Seafood Canton, Sizzling Seafood Plate and Garlic Rice…Yummy!
The best seafood restaurant in Legaspi!
