Blackbeard's Seafood Island: Sumptuous Seafood Feast for the Entire Family

Back in my high school years, when I would spend my summer vacation over at my uncle's place in Muntinlupa, he and my aunt would occasionally take me to her parent's house in Ayala Alabang and just before going home, we would drop by Alabang Town Center (ATC) to see and get something either for ourselves or for their house. It's been ages since the last time I went to ATC. So when I was given the chance to check the place out, with my blogger friends this time, I didn't hesitate to go. But other than the sights and the shops, our mission was centered solely on food. We were there to sample the offerings of Blackbeard's Seafood Island, another awesome restaurant under the Red Crab Group.


For this food trip, I had quite high expectations as I have tried eating at other Red Crab restaurants before (John Bamboo and The Flying Pig). As it turned out, my expectations were met and our Sunday lunch was a gastronomic success.

The dishes on our table:

bsi-lPinoy Nachos, P165

Steamed Lapu-Lapu, starts at P999

Sampler de Grande, P685

Tali Beach, P1150 (5 to 6 persons)

Prawns in Chili and Garlic, P425

Let's do the Liempo, P185

Crispy Sisig con Bagnet, 195

Pakbet de Vigan with Bagnet, P240

Pork BBQ (5 pcs.), P220

Ensalatang Urdaneta, P175

Among the dishes served to us which were mostly Pinoy favorites, the stand-outs for me were the Halaan Soup (the perfect way to warm my body and whet my appetite!), the Garlic and Cheese Overload Oysters (ate more than my share of this seafood that was oozing with cheesy goodness!), the Crispy Diniguan (loved the crispy chicken intestines and the tantalizingly sour sauce!) and the Tuna and Crabmeat Sisig (rich in yummy seafood meat and had just the right kick from the chilies!). I must have liked the food so much because I was already asking for rice even if we we we're still into appetizers! Funny but true. Haha. When the entrees came, I had to limit my rice intake or run the risk of getting bloated with all the food in front of me. Hay, I could only eat so much food.

Garlic & Cheese Overload Oysters, P295

bsi-dCrispy Dinuguan Classic, P290

Tuna and Crabmeat Sisig, P250

Our desserts had a Pinoy touch. It's called 2nd Floor and consisted of suman (glutinous rice cake), ripe mango slices, banana turon and palitao with a glass of vanilla ice cream in the middle. This came in a big platter and was perfect for sharing.

2nd Floor, P320

Blackbeard's Seafood Island is the place to go for families (or group of friends) who would like to celebrate milestones over a seafood feast. Their food come in big servings that partaking of them is a no-brainer. They even offer boodle combos (prices start at P675 for a group of 3-4 persons) that are sure to unleash the "happy eater" in you. If you're fond of seafood and some grilled meats, the restaurant has a lot of dishes to choose from depending on your budget and of course, appetite.


To wash down all the seafood goodness, I suggest getting the perfect drink. Mine was a tall glass of fresh guyabano juice. I love, love, love guyabano! It's not just thirst-quenching but also packed with nutrients (some are known to have cancer-fighting properties). It was too sweet for my liking, though. (I think it'd be great if the staff at the bar would go easy with their sugar/syrup.) They also serve cocktails and other alcoholic beverages because they also double as a bar at night.



While the ambience at Blackbeard's Seafood Island is cozy and laidback with a tropical beach mood, the service was warm, fast and friendly.


The man behind the restaurant's extensive seafood menu, on the other hand, is John Paul Sentero. We met him during our sumptuous lunch and he was kind enough to answer our food-related questions and take his photo with us.


Our group was among the first diners to arrive in the restaurant and I was surprised to see that after we have settled on our table, people started coming in to eat. With the many restaurants that dot the second level of ATC, I think Blackbeard's Seafood Island stands out because of one thing: their delightful seafood feast that's perfect for the entire family. Seriously, I can't wait to go back.

  1. Would you believe that me and my girlfriend finished their big set meal (tali beach) with only the two of us! Their set meals are great!

  2. @Matt See: Wow! I can't agree more. We dined at Blackbeard's Seafood Island-Greenbelt 3 just last night and we ordered the Chang China Chow boodle feast at P1,395 (good for 4-5 persons). We were four and we polished off everything. Haha. :)

  3. everything we had was fairly good--we had the tali beach and were quite floored with how much food we got...the pork sinigang was yum and had the perfect sourness to it.....staff were attentive as well so no complaints about here was the thing we had the rice and the pork sinigang packed to go because we barely touched the pork sinigang--i had the soup mostly..and the rice was still plenty....not to waste we asked them to bag it for us..

    later that night i opened the pack and was surprised to find the pork contents were visibly missing--i know there were loads of it as i barely touched it...what we had were fatty parts instead...and so anyway i immediately transferred the rice in a clean container and microwaved imagine my horror when i saw a long brown thing embedded on the rice and picking it out i realized it was actually a grown cockroaches' antennae!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!arrrrgggghhhh.....
    this branch is around the east_wood area:((((!!!
