Why Payag Restaurant is special ?
Payag Restaurant is build inside a Spanish styled house. From the outside, the place looks big and overpowering with its all wooden structure. You will be greeted with the friendly guard, the welcoming fat chef statue and a wooden stairs leading to the 2nd floor and the restaurant areas.
The place is decorated with roosters and chicken figurines, art collections, and wooden furniture. It also found on the table, plates and clocks (both dining area) and some old inspired material like old Capiz lamp, heavy wood chairs and tables. The homely atmosphere is enhanced more by the heavy wood chairs and tables, as opposed to the mono blocks that same-price restaurants usually have.
The restaurant has both al fresco and air-conditioned dining areas. The outdoor area, called Plaza Juanita reminds you of an old town square where there are cobblestones, a lamp posts decorating the streets, a swing and has a tree on an open area with the view of the street.
Must try dishes:
Payag Restaurant’s chicken inato (P121)
Binakhaw, or kilawin (P98)
Sizzling pork sisig (P135)
Chicken chicharon, or fried chicken skin (P80)

Tips for you
For sheer flavor of chicken barbecue, this place is the best. The restaurant has been a landmark of native food in Tagbilaran for several years now and it has maintained that reputation. Competition have come and gone but Payag is the place to go to fill that hungry stomach especially after a full day for frolicking in the island paradise of Bohol.
Aside from their Inato (crispy skin, tender meat), try their binakhaw (fish kilawin). Difference with others is it has chicharon garnish. Could use more chilis though
