“Good food, terrible service and management”

357 Boracay Restaurant
Ranked #173 of 326 Restaurants in Boracay
Cuisines: Philippine
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Went there to join a friend who was staying there and from the outside the place looks very trendy and cute.
Small patio, few tables, looks more a restaurant that would go in station 1..
Anyway the food was good and the variety was very interesting, specially in Filipinos food compared to all the boring western restaurant around..

Unfortunately,at first the staff haven't been very friendly at the base..
Then they did some mistakes about our order and didn't want to change it, orders that took a long time to be delivered..

The worst part is that when I noticed the manager about it. Working myself in a luxury hotel I value guest comments and reviews.. Nevertheless the answer I got was that if I didn't like the place I could just go to another one..

Noted !

Small restaurant on the patio of the hotel. It has about 4-5 tables under cover if it's rainy, and in good weather they can pull out a few more tables uncovered. Very reasonably priced and the food is very palatable, but nothing too fancy. The vegetables tend to be very plain steamed carrots and beans and you get a choice of plain rice, garlic rice or potatoes with most dishes. While the food is simple, it was consistently good. The service was prompt and friendly. The view of the beach was excellent. There was some live band a few meters down the beach playing some nice slow pop a few nights. The wind occasionally blows in sand.

The cuisine here is listed as Filipino, but on the menu there is only one section of Filipino food and the majority of foods are international.

This lovely beachfront restaurant is located at the quiet end of Boat station # 3 and tends not to be crowded. As their sizzling squid was not available, they offered us sizzling seafood (not on the menu) that had only very small pieces of seafood and the vegetables were limited to matchstick carrots – no onions, bell peppers, etc. The spicy scampi pasta (Oreganado) was nicely spiced but the few scampi were merely tiny shrimp. Their garlic toast was terrible as it was made on a sweet white bread and had very little garlic. Their Pancit Canton is excellent but their American breakfast was just average. The latter comes with 2 eggs, 2 bacon, toast, jam and butter, weak brewed coffee, and a fresh mango. Purified drinking water is not available, so if you want water with your meal you must purchase their overpriced bottled water. Wait staff are very efficient. A 10% service charge is added to the bill. Unfortunately, smoking is permitted throughout the restaurant.
