“Best shakes on the island!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Most visitors to the island have heard about the famous shakes served at a popular shake bar along White Beach. Sure, they had the best... but that was 10 years ago.

If you want great tasting blended beverages served in generous amounts (as long as you sit at the restaurant instead of taking it in a take-away bottle, come to Jony's at Station 1 (yea, the name sounds A LOT LIKE that popular shake bar I mentioned earlier. It's right below the equally great restaurant, Maya's.

Our favorites are Watermelon-Pineapple, Mango-Buco and the sinfully-delicious (but guilt-free, I think?!) Banana-Oreo. I call this Skinny Cookies & Cream. That way I can take two!

“Go Here”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Seriously. If you only purposely eat at one restaurant in Boracay this is the one. The waiters are amazing and extremely helpful. The food breakfast lunch and dinner are all reasonably priced and extremely delicious. For breakfast make sure to get both the French Toast and the chorizo eggs Benedict. Lunch and or dinner you literally can't miss but absolutely get the mahi mahi fish tacos. One of the most perfectly executed dishes I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Oh and it also has beachfront seating. Need I say more?

“Very Happy”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food here. They seated us on the 2nd floor which has amazing view of the beach. We were 20 people in total and their menu is quite diverse that they have many dishes to cater to everyone. I had Mexican dishes - so good! My dad ordered sisig which is also very good. I loved everything about this restaurant. Great find!

“Only raves and nothing to complain!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

YOU GOTTA TRY THEIR CHICKEN FAJITAS AND CHICKEN TINGA TACOS. No ifs, not buts, no questions. Just go ahead and try them! So good! The tinga tacos are spicy so be sure to tell the waiter if you want them milder. We went here twice. The second time we had (I believe it was) Angus beef fajitas. My well-traveled fiance said he's never had that anywhere. They were also very good though quite pricey, so unless you're committed... just go for the other dishes on the menu -- none of which you will regret I'm sure. Mango shake, especially in the summer, is not to be missed. Service was also very good. A little trivia: we learned that the chef is the owner's son and he studied and specializes in Mexican cuisine. All raves for Mayas. :)

Only 4 stars for atmosphere because they're too close to the main road of Boracay so when you dine you can hear tricycles driving past.
