“Away from the Crowd”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We had crabs (both the chili and the garlic) for dinner at the rooftop and every order (salpicao, bagnet, shrimps) we had was just great and had it served at the rooftop. Imagine what they had to go through with all our extra orders and request. The price was unexpected (for all seven of us) as it was truly affordable.

Complimentary breakfast was of the unexpected - they allowed you to choose what you want from the breakfast menu. The pizza I had for lunch was delicious and truly complete.

One would remember the good old days of "San Mig Pub" and find the emblems of old hotels interesting.

“Great ambiance! Good food and big servings!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

Tried hampstead as I was looking for a chill place away from the noise of white beach. Nice place to relax with a beautiful rooftop view! I really like their pasta, esp the penne arabiata - big servings and not the usual sweet sauce like in many restaurants on the island. My friend ordered the burger - huge! And we also tried the chili crab. Really great meaty crab and affordable esp during their crab Wednesday promo. :)

“8H Bistro: Great food, great staff!!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Great ambiance in the Bistro, staff is very helpful with recommendations and they speak/understand very good english!!

Such a wonderful place to get away from the touristy crowds on Boracay.

The crab is amazing!!!! I recommend sitting upstairs on the rooftop and ordering food upstairs so you can enjoy the scenery and watch the sun go down.

Will be back soon!!!
