Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant

Nothing like deliciously cooked fresh seafood to make me happy.

I had the pleasure of dining at one of Mindanao’s dining gems, Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant in Opol, Misamis Oriental during a roadtrip to Iligan City from Cagayan de Oro City. When I was told we’d be eating at a restaurant along the way, I had expected a small quaint restaurant with a few dishes on the menu to served to weary travelers. I certainly did not expect a humongous seaside restaurant that served a selection of fresh seafoods which can be cooked according to the diners’ preference. I was in heaven.

The meal started out with servings of Kinilaw na Hipon (Filipino Style Tuna Ceviche), which I had only eaten once before in Iloilo. Panagatan’s version had pieces of salted egg and that made me extra happy. That was a nice start to the meal. We were then served with Tinolang Imbao (Clam Soup) which was a clear briny soup flavored with ginger and lemongrass. It had generous amounts of imbao in it. And I could taste the a hint of briny flavor from the imbao.

We were then served giant platters of various Grilled Seafoods and servings of Grilled Tuna Panga (tuna jaw). Even if I was already quite full from the shrimps and the clams, I still tried all the seafoods and everything was delightful. Each piece was seasoned and grilled perfectly.

Just as we thought the meal was over…



Who could say no to Crabs? I and my companions definitely savored the huge crabs. It was served with a delicious sauce which I think is schezuan as it had spicy tang to it.

Everything we tried and ate was simply great. The seafoods were fresh, seasoned and prepared well, and served in big amounts. It was definitely a greats treat for a seafood lover like me. The seaside view of the restaurant adds more to the culinary experience.

If you’re traveling through the Iligan-Cagayan de Oro-Butuan Road, you must not miss out on Panagatan Seafoods Restaurant. It is located in Opol, Misamis Oriental about 10 kilometers away from Cagayan de Oro City. That’s around 20 minutes away from CDO. They’re open Mondays to Sundays, 6:30 am to 10:30 pm. They’re also open on holidays.

    Certainly its a humongous seaside restaurant. When you’re from the airport going to CDO it is just along the way. You can drop by and have fresh seafoods meal which can be cooked depending on your own preference. To all the seafood lover out there, you should try it here.
