Silangang Nayon in Pagbilao, Quezon
Hurrying to the place due to excite since it was still early in the afternoon, his effort to get there turned out alright with the sun-bathed sand near a beach though not really fit for swimming but just lounging at the huts on stilts.
first look at the restaurant houses on stilts with a long foot bridge
the foot bridge looks daunting from afar but actually sturdy when you get there
your order will be delivered using an "airplane" suspended on a cable, sort of a zipline delivery
below the huts on stilts are oysters grown by the restaurant for their own consumption making them the freshest there is for the customers
the largest hut is shaped like a ship ready to sail out to Pagbilao Bay, Tayabas Bay and beyond
you can admire the place from above the cliff with a view of Pagbilao bay, Pagbilao Power PLant, Pagbilao Grande Island and Patayan Island with visible white sand beaches from afar
A bottle of San Mig Lite (low calorie pale pilsen) costs P45.00 each, quite cheap for the ambiance of the place jutting out of Pagbilao
steamed capiz in oyster sauce complemented the cold san mig light. Cost is P165.00 good enough for the three of them
How would Tutubi review Silangang Nayon? It's Tutubi's first and only visit there and he ordered just a round of beer and the steamed capiz. The orders came fast, probably because there were only two groups of visitors there. Prices are ok, quite cheap actually for a place with nice ambiance. Tutubi intends to return to the place someday.
Silangang Nayon has hotel rooms available for overnight accomodations, something Tutubi intends to try someday since the place is really relaxing and probably use as a base to explore other interesting places in Pagbilao.

I knew a few guys from Pagbilao Quezon from dorm days. So each time I see a Pagbilao on the title I read it immediately.
It looks like a relaxing spot dragonfly. Very inviting indeed. I'm sure with this post, people would go and see for themselves.

I've been there! Nice landscaping, excellent view. The place is serene and relaxing, sea breeze is soothing and cool. The food is excellent at very reasonable price, the waiters are very efficient and quick to deliver orders. It's a Shangri-La. I plan to go there again on my next vacation.

my wife and I stayed here 4 nights in 2007, it was great and really cheap. Everyone was friendly. The view was great even with the power plant on the other side of the bay. I would like to go back again someday. Sorry for getting drunk and throwing your toads off the cliff, I realized they were for controlling the bugs after I sobered up.

Silangang Nayon is really majestic... so are the foods... yum...
However I suggest you try Kamayan sa Palaisdaan Restaurant in Tayabas, Quezon....
You will definitely enjoy the view and the foods...
