J. J. 's Bar, Restaurant, and Internet Cafe

Owner: Jiesa A. Oro

Solangon, San Juan, Siquijor

Phone: 09267101944


JJ's Internet Cafe, Bar & Restaurant is open at 7 a.m. and closes at midnight...or later.  When I visited the meal menu was not yet completed and the internet was not up and running at that time.  However, I did see a lot of customers enjoying a cool drink and relaxing.  Its location on the highway makes accessibility a snap, so the next time you are passing by stop in and check it out.

Little Italy Restaurant

Roxas Street

Larena, Siquijor

Owner: Guenther Sanin

Phone: (63) 918-694-8992


Little Italy Restaurant is a welcome addition to the Island.  I enjoyed what I consider the best pizza on the island at this restaurant on more than one occasion.  During my visits they had plans to open a beer garden on top of the building which offered a fantastic view.  Chef Jake and the Filipino Chef Glomar have created a menu that is sure to please everyone. 

I was told that there are plans to add a travel agency to the Little Italy restaurant, bar, and coffee shop in the near future.      

This business has been closed (September 2007)
