    the best place we have found is JP's restaurant about one klick north of bacong on the ocean side. very social environment plus a book exchange. jerry holloway is the owner and very good at creating a comfortable place for expats to mix. personally do not know of any others tho i would imagine there are some

    JP's restaurant about one klick north of bacong on the ocean side is a good and casual environment frequented by expats and partners. jerry holloway has created a nice place there plus it has a book exchange and good food. its really the only place we go in the dumaguete area for social mixing

    I assume the place to go is Grumpy's.
    Several Expat - groups gather there due to the first class food and to socialize.

    You always find nice people there. For breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saturday night they have life music.

    If you look for top food for fair rates and like to have a chat with other guys, go to Grumpy's.

    And the owner, Ralf, is always available for a chat and certainly he can give you a lot if advise about living in Dumaguete.
