Their Prosciutto pizza was great. 8 large slices for 400 pesos is not bad at all. We also ordered mango shake which is also good.. Good service. You can bring your drinks on the beach except for food.

Good enough for a hungry stomach. Ready to take off for another touring around Boracay.
This time readying for an island hopping. One need to have taken something before longer swimming, boat riding, and more.

We ate lunch here every day during our trip! The pizzas and Spaghetti Aglio Olio were particularly good and the beer was always cold. At dinner time, you can eat right on the beach.

So much potential.....Such a crying shame!! Prime Location++
If ever a hotel and restaurant screamed out for someone with more than two neurons to manage it and make it a success no hotel I have ever stayed at screams louder.
Stayed longer than I normally would have because I was fortunate enough to have what I was told was the owner's room which directly overlooked White Beach.....so it was a comprimise.The room itself was very basic but the view was priceless.
The place is literally falling apart, it crys out for just basic maintenance....starting with the very basics like a coat of paint, the tiles on the floors are chipped....stood on one and got a electric shock as some electric wiring had become exposed from underneath.
Room service in terms of basic cleaning, changing towels,linen etc is non existant. You have to ask to get room cleaned....sometimes they do a reasonable job other times the job is so poor that one wonders why one bothered to ask.
The restaurant is well short of the mark. I had 2 meals there and the quality is less than ordinary....in fact compared to some of the other restaurants nearby it is poor. The staff although friendly enough appear to have difficulty conceptualising of what working in the hospitality industry entails.
This hotel is located near some rather prime upmarket accommodation facilities and with its location the restaurant should be tapping into that potential source of revenue by at least producing reasonable food.
All I can say is it's such a shame.....I could not recommend staying or eating here......Would love to manage it and reinvent it.

We had dinner here at Luna Rossa and I am telling you, it is definitely THE WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE WE'VE EVER HAD IN OUR WHOLE LIVES. This gay named "CLYDE" is the one pursuing customers who are passing by the store. We stopped by and he told us what we want for dinner and informed us that we can choose anything we want and they can cook it for free. We chose 2 seafood dishes for dinner. But he NEVER informed us that the price is per 100 grams. He is supposed to inform that us that the fish is 1.2 kilograms and the crab is 900 grams. We never saw him weigh the fish and the latter. When the bill arrived, we were shocked to see the price. 3k for both dishes that were not even cooked right, the crab smelled and tasted rotten or bulok and the fish is undercooked.

We got angry because we we're not informed of the per 100 grams rule, their signboard is very misleading compared to all the other restaurants in Boracay. We we're very angry because it was not even worth it! The place looks dirty and old, the staff were cold and unfriendly, and the food! The food tasted awful and they had the nerve to charge their customers the 10% service charge. Totally overpriced...

We told the staff that we will wait for the owner and explain our situation, we were definitely not gonna pay the 3k bill. This CLYDE failed to inform us and we don't want a 10% discount because that would only mean removing the 10% service charge. They increased the discount to 15%, we said NO. We want to have a 50% discount, and this CLYDE never even admitted his fault. He just doesn't care if customers will believe everything he says just as long as we order their food only to find out in the end that it is too expensive and we can't do anything about it. So we let one of the staffs call the owner and informed her that we will wait. We were quietly sitting in the corner for 10minutes when this CLYDE suddenly shouted at us, obviously pissed that we will let the manager know how incompetent he is for his job.

He suddenly stopped by our table then shouted, "Will you guys pay your bill or not?!? Do you want us to go to the police station??!?!" We were shocked because we agreed that we will wait for the owner but he suddenly got really mad, obviously scared to lose his so-called commission and probably scared to face the owner. My boyfriend dragged him out of the resto because people were already looking at us, then we argued and the other staff member, the one in charge, got frustrated and told us that she will give us the 50% discount just to end the scandalous scene.

We agreed but we were frustrated because the owner never arrived eventhough she was informed of the situation, and this rude restaurant waiter, his name is CLYDE, just gave us the worst restaurant experience in our whole lives. Everything about LUNA ROSSA is "Substandard." We'd rather eat grilled hotdogs or isaw for dinner than to eat at Luna Rossa the next time we visit Boracay.
