“Avoid if you can”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We have now been on Boracay for a few days and this was by far the most disappointing restaurant we have experienced. The atmosphere is good and the decor alluring, but the restaurant is terribly run - there is no sign of a manager or anybody in charge and consequently staff are leaderless, inattentive and disenfranchised. The food was not at all good. We ordered a sea-food pizza and a burger. Both were nearly cold. The sea-food was processed (despite the restaurant being on the sea-front) and the burger was full of gristle. We were going to give feedback but the waiter he never asked us how anything was (in fact I am quite sure the reason he didn't was because he knew we were not happy). The chef was half in and half out of the restaurant and looked as though he was at best not wanting to be there and at worse hungover (his face was pinned up agains the glass looking at us - we were one of the only tables occupied). The staff were joking around, running in and out of the kitchen and altogether in a different world. Given the price (the most expensive restaurant we have eaten in thus far), I would certainly avoid. In fact, I feel rather sick at the thought of eating there again.

“Easily the Best Restaurant on Boracay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Have dined here several times now and have never been disappointed. The location is perfect being on the beachfront. You can choose to dine outside or inside where it is a lot cooler. The menu is very good and gives you many types of food to choose from. The Wine List also has many styles of wines from around the world which I like. The service is excellent and the staff are always ready to attend to any requests you may have. This is very good fine dining situated in Boracay 2 at the front of the Boracay Regency. Highly recommended.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Amazing food and service. We stayed at the hotel so we got to have free breakfast there with lots of choices and all you can eat. They had a little side buffet as well.

“Nice Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Great ambiance, wonderful wait staff. Ordered the meat platter as an appetizer and it was okay. Also had a salad which was quite okay. The problem was more with my husband's lamb in that it was less than 5 small bites of meat as the majority was all fat.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Tried this place twice and had a lovely meal both times. A bit upmarket and a bit pricy but, well worth the visit. Sit outside, it is freezing inside
