My favorite places to eat:
Table 35 –
I’ve been here a handful of times, usually on a Friday night, and every time they have run out of most of the food on the menu. That doesn’t deter me because the ambiance; crystal chandelier, island jazz band that plays on the weekend, low lighting and delicious food; is enjoyable. It feels like I’m not in Guam anymore and maybe in some cool city somewhere! I ordered a bottle of wine, had some great sausage pasta and mushroom soup and listened to the music. They serve a lot of seafood and the prices start at $11. It’s not a place I’d go to every weekend, but definitely for a special occasion or date night. I’ve also only been there in the evening, I hear there are lunch specials that I’d like to try sometime.
Meskla and Meskla Dos-
Meskla is a Chamorro fusion restaurant that impressed me with just their salad! The salad dressing was unique and tasted great, the meats were all very good and the service was fast. If you want to go on a nice dinner date or special occasion, Meskla is another good place to eat.
Meskla Dos is a burger place across from K Mart. The burgers start at $8 and they are MASSIVE and hearty. The fries are seasoned and my favorite. Everything on the menu is good. I recommend the grilled cheese burger with fries or the fiesta plate.
Century Lanes Bowling Alley-
Yes can you believe it I love the bowling alley food! At the moment they are remodeling, but they were home to my favorite hamburger — the onion ring burger. They also have a restaurant that serves Filipino and Chamorro food and it’s GOOD!
I love this place. It’s a fancy coffee shop that also serves breakfast, lunch and din din. Not to mention it’s set right on the beach and has an incredible view of the ocean. The ribs are my favorite. The downside is that the outdoor seating attracts tons of flies so most of the time you are swatting them away. It’s very nice and reasonably priced.
In the village of Agana, Caliente is the closest thing to authentic Mexican food. My favorite is to get a seat at the bar and order appetizers!
I went here for Valentine’s day and had a four course meal (first one EVER!). Unlike everywhere else on Guam, their Valentine’s Day special was about $35 and it was surprisingly good. The presentation was fancy and I really loved it. The downside is that the seating is a little too small and cramped. I have very long legs and it was uncomfortable and I kept banging my legs on the table.
The Beach at Gun Beach-
Another great place for food, music and ocean views. I ate here for the first time about a month ago. I ordered the Greek salad and the burger with this special spicy sauce. INCREDIBLE! I mean if you can get past the 80s hair band rock music going on in the background, you will love the food here. Which is surprising because I thought it was nothing more than just a beach bar! Also the perfect place to watch a beautiful Guamanian sunset.
Places to Skip:
Meskla on the Beach – BAD service and okay food.
Shirley’s – Fried rice was cold and very dry also expensive and not worth it.
Margarita’s – Salsa tasted like it had been frozen, stale chips and overly fried everything. Nothing special.
Proa – Highly overrated. Every time I’ve gone there, the cuts of meat they served were fatty and bad. Do try the desserts though!
Ban Thai – Overpriced and sloppy. Overrated.
There are SO many restaurants on Guam and I LOVE eating out! Although I haven’t eaten at every single one, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite restaurants and a few that I don’t really like. Guam is very small and even though there are a lot of restaurants, it’s nothing compared to what’s available in The States. For this reason, I think people who have lived here their whole life have been accustomed to and have set low standards for the restaurants on Guam.
