Aug. 9, 2013 – The new resto in BGC opened last Dec 2012 and I missed its grand opening event and also its media event around January 2013. I’m hearing good reviews about the fish resto there in BGC bec. the resto’s main specialty is to serve fish in different pinoy cooking and fusion style. It took me 7 months to visit this resto, I even stumbled the resto when I went to Picadilly bldg few months ago, and I even pin pointed the resto to my wife like a kid shouting…hey! hey! I finally found Fishman restaurant.
The resto is located at the Ground Floor, Bonifacio One Technology Tower, 31st Street, Bonifacio Global City – I just can’t say yet if its originally part of Taguig City or Makati City haaha. Which ever city it belongs… Fishman restaurant is here to stay. . The resto was popular during the Lenten season, because they can serve you all fish food from their menu everyday. But for the fish lover and non meat eaters, this is a resto haven for you!
Upon entering, you’ll see two kinds of dining area, one area with a small table and stool chair and the other is with long tables and normal chairs. The resto is spacious, they have more tables and chairs for all customers. During its first month of launch, the building allows them to have an al fresco dining area, but then today, they removed the al fresco dining area because it blocks the sidewalk of the building.
Wifi network in Fishman is fast!!! go use it while eating hehe.
I forgot about the food service simulation of the resto. I didn’t got a chance to experience on how they do service us customers. I’ll go back there again for the store and customer relation simulation.
The sign is like a flooring of a pool.
They don’t have any aquariums and display of fish here at Fishman, but we suggested that they should put up an aquarium just to add a fishy ambiance to the restaurant. Maybe they can put up a live aquarium with tilapia, tawilis or bangus. I’m sure kids will love looking at those fishes.
Here’s their menu.
I noticed that food ranges from Php 88 up to Php 250 only, Its quite affordable for a fish restaurant.
Not only fish, they also have Pork and Chicken meat, The carnivorous foodies will never be left behind here at Fishman.
Okay, here are the fishy food that they served to us that day.
Vegetable seafood stir fry with rice (PHP 175)
Double belly paksiw (PHP 250)
Leche Flan with Macapuno (PHP 70)
Bangus sisig (PHP 230)
Assorted balls seafood with hawker sauce (PHP 150)

Classic Fish n Chips (PHP 190)
Bangus belly paksiw
Grilled Pork Liempo (PHP 180)
Kung Pao Calamares (PHP 155)

I super love this.. I was looking for a special food from Fishman resto, but I’m betting that this will be the next “talk of the town”
Butterfly Tilapia with ensalada (PHP 230)
Dynamite Fish Lumpia ( PHP 125)
They said that its not that chili…after I took a bite… it exploded like a real dynamite inside my mouth.
I enjoyed eating this after my 1st bite.
Tilapia Pinoy Fish and Chips (PHP 190)
Also the pinoy version of Fish n Chips are starting to have a craze here in Fishman. I know it’s a best pulutan for your beer nights, they used Tilapia fish meat for the American snacks.
