Fantastic food (we had squid, then lapu lapu fillet and linguine) and good prices although not a cheap option (about 400 pesos for a main course). Also served decent wine which as a non-beer drinker is important to me! Great location on the beach, and very good service.

I just wish the portions were a little larger as the food was so delicious!! And that the music from the band was a little quieter...

We did the New Years Eve tasting menu and it was amazing. Like eating at a nice restaurant in Europe or the states- great variety, preparation, quality etc. The pork belly was rediculous. Tables right on the beach as well. An upsacle oasis on white beach.

We had our best meal in Boracay at Alchemy. I had a fish dish (ma hi mahi with some type of cabbage concoction) and it was really, really good. Don't be influenced by how empty the restaurant is. Given how good our food tasted, we were surprised that the place wasn't packed.

There are so many delightful and delicious foods in this restaurant. But nothing compares to their Appetizer (fishcakes!). It drives me Crazy!
