Isdaan Floating Restaurant in Calauan, Laguna

To cap off our Laguna day trip, my family and I decided to have dinner at Isdaan Floating Restaurant located in Calauan, Laguna. Coming from a whole day of exploration, we were all hungry by the time we arrived Calauan. It was almost 7:00 PM when we arrived and the sun had just set. We were literally rushing out of the car just to have a glimpse of the statues and structures before the sky gets dark.

Last April, I had the chance to visit the Isdaan Floating Restaurant in Gerona, Tarlac and I was fascinated by the overall Asian-themed vibe of the place. Much like its main/original branch in Tarlac, the one in Laguna is filled with gigantic figures, floating huts, and lively music.

We have a couple of floating restaurants in Cavite which my family frequently go to–there’s the Balsahan in my hometown, Bacoor, then there’s the Fishing Village in Island Cove, Kawit–but this one is not a typical floating restaurant. Over the years, Isdaan has become one of Laguna’s most visited attraction due to its fascinating theme.

I am so in love with these mermaid statues!

Isdaan also houses the famous (as far as I can remember, this has been featured in numerous tv shows already) Tacsiyapo where guests can throw breakable things stuff like plates, glasses, and appliances directly at the wall. It’s actually a great way to release resentment or let go of inhibitions.

The food is also great! I made sure to order a pitcher of melon juice which easily became a favorite drink after I tried it last time in Tarlac. The food is pricey but I think it is reasonable and worth it (given the ambience and the bonus photogenic site).

Sisig for life! 🙁

All in all, it was a pleasant dining experience. We think the food is great and we really enjoyed the place. It was the perfect way to end our long and adventure-filled day.

Here are some of my photos. Meheh.

After we settled our bill, we headed back home. As I slowly doze off along the streets of Calamba, recalling everything that has happened and everything I have seen that day, I cannot help but feel extremely grateful for the gift family, the gift of adventure, and the gift of life. It’s always fun and exciting to travel. I enjoy traveling alone as much as I enjoy traveling with my friends. But nothing compares to the feeling of traveling with the my wonderful family. It has been a while now and while everyone is busy with their respective work and studies, I am really looking forward to our next out-of-town trip.
