Woody’s Bar and Grill is located at the Kaylaa Resort at Dimiao about a leisurely half hour drive from Tagbilaran towards Jagna on the eastern side of Bohol. Set on a beautiful beach overlooking the bay the restaurant offers seating around the pool, the beach or the covered bar so you have the perfect place for a ‘get-a-way’ leisurely lunch or dinner.
Our party of four started with an entree of deep fried prawns and calamari and then moved on to a Swiss Cheese and Mushroom Burger, Baby Back Ribs, Fish Tacos and a Mexican Burger, of course accompanied by the pre requisite accompaniment ….beer!
As our venture out to Dimiao was more about a leisurely and informal lunch we didn’t explore the menu past the ‘pub food’ offerings so we can’t talk to the expertise in regards to the broader menu (which is actually attractive and offers a large selection).
The food we tried was competent, satisfying and well presented but nothing out of the ordinary. The real star of this restaurant is the ambiance and the exceptional service from the staff. The setting is beautiful and relaxing however the pool filter noise detracts somewhat from the natural surrounds. We understand the restaurant has a chef that excels in Thai cooking. This cuisine is sadly lacking in Bohol, other than two offerings at Alona Beach, so we will venture out again and report to our readers.
It’s nice to venture further afield on a sunny Sunday afternoon and its great to have a consistent option to the sometimes overcrowded Alona Beach.
