20 of the Best Restaurants on Boracay Island, Philippines

Boracay Island is world-famous. It’s known for having one of the best beaches in the world, with powdery white sands that I personally haven’t seen anywhere else, not even in the rest of the Philippines.

Boracay has been one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines for the past thirty years. We’ve seen it grow from one resort and no electricity to the (overcrowded) tourist magnet that it is today. People from across the globe flock to its shores so it’s no surprise that Boracay has become a food lover’s paradise in its own right.

From Filipino food to Neapolitan pizza to unlimited samgyupsal, it won’t be hard to find good food on the island. Here are twenty restaurants, cafes, and dessert shops to visit on your next Boracay trip.


To help you plan your Boracay trip, we’ve put together links to top-rated hotels, tours, and other travel services here.

Dishes from restaurants in Boracay, Philippines


The majority of restaurants on Boracay island can be found in three main areas – Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3. You can refer to the location map at the bottom of this article to see exactly where these recommended restaurants are.

1. The Sunny Side Café

The Sunny Side Café is one of our favorite restaurants on Boracay island. As its name suggests, it’s a bright and cheery all-day breakfast cafe that puts an interesting spin on traditional comfort food. French toast is stuffed with ube while eggs benedict are made with piri-piri pulled pork.

Pictured below is their take on the classic shakshuka. A staple dish in North African countries like Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria, The Sunny Side Café makes theirs with sauteed tofu and feta cheese. They also top it with a fried egg instead of poached eggs.

Shakshouka in Boracay

This bacon and mango grilled cheese was amazing. A spin on the classic grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup, it’s made with bacon, mozzarella, and housemade mango jam served on the cafe’s signature brioche bread.

An interesting blend of savory, sweet, and sour (from the tomato soup), this sandwich is the cafe’s bestseller. All it takes is one bite to understand why. It’s delicious.

You can’t really tell from the picture but this take on the classic Swiss roesti was massive, about the size of a pancake. As tasty as it is large, it’s topped with poached eggs, sour cream, tomato, basil, and the cafe’s housemade crumbled chorizo.

Roesti in Boracay

You may be familiar with horchata, but have you ever tried heirloom rice horchata? This vegan purplish drink is made with almonds and heirloom rice grown in the rice terraces of Banaue.

Horchata in Boracay

The Sunny Side Café has two branches in Boracay. We went to the newer (and bigger) restaurant in Station 1 but the original outlet is located at Boracay Sands Hotel in Station 3.

Sunny Side Cafe in Boracay

The first floor offers great views but I highly recommend getting a table upstairs if you can. You’ll have the best view of the ocean from up there, especially at sunset.

Location: Station 1 beachfront, Station 3 beachfront (Boracay Sands Hotel)
Operating Hours: 7AM-8PM, daily
What to Order: Bacon and mango grilled cheese, roesti, heirloom rice champorado

2. Cafe Maruja

Cafe Maruja is another popular all-day breakfast and brunch cafe in Boracay. Located in Station 3, they’re known for their toasts, egg dishes, and “Buddha Bowls”. They also serve a wide array of international dishes like souffle pancakes, crepes, mezze, and artisanal pizzas.

I asked my server for recommendations and one of the dishes she suggested was this beautiful spiced shrimp avocado toast. A crisp slice of toasted bread is topped with pan-fried shrimp, avocado, ebiko, cherry tomatoes, onions, and balsamic vinagrette. Delicious!

Shrimp toast in Boracay

What you’re looking at below is the Maruja Speciale. Similar in shape to Turkish pide or Georgian khachapuri, it’s topped with bacon, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, black olives, tomatoes, and mozzarella.

Pizza in Boracay

Cafe Maruja is located on the beachfront of Casa Pilar Beach Resort in Station 3.

Seating at Cafe Maruja in Boracay

If you like, you can stretch out and enjoy your breakfast while sitting on floor cushions in these cute cabanas.

Seating at Cafe Maruja in Boracay

Personally, I enjoyed sitting on the beach while gazing out at the horizon. As the late great Anthony Bourdain once said: “Food tastes better with sand between your toes.”

Location: Station 3 beachfront (Casa Pilar Beach Resort)
Operating Hours: 7:30AM-12MN, daily
What to Order: Toasts, egg dishes, Buddha Bowls, pizza

3. Real Coffee & Tea Cafe

This next entry isn’t as fancy as the previous two but what it lacks in style it more than makes up for in longevity. Open since 1996, Real Coffee & Tea Cafe is a Boracay legend. Aside from coffee and tea, they offer traditional breakfast dishes and sandwiches but what they’re really known for are their calamansi (calamondin) muffins.

Like Peanut Kisses from Bohol or Good Shepherd ube halaya from Baguio, many Filipinos have been bringing home boxes of these Real Coffee calamansi muffins for years. It’s a staple pasalubong option (gift from a trip) and something people have come to associate with Boracay island.

Coffee and calamansi muffin in Boracay

Real Coffee & Tea Cafe is located in Station 2, in a traditional nipa-hut-style building.

Real Coffee in Boracay

The calamansi muffins are nice but what makes Real Coffee truly special is the vibe and the view. If only they had wifi!

Location: Station 2 beachfront
Operating Hours: 7AM-7PM, daily
What to Order: Calamansi muffins

4. Little Wave Cafe

Little Wave Cafe serves some of the best and most interesting coffee drinks in Boracay, which isn’t surprising considering they source their beans from two of the country’s best roasters – Yardstick Coffee and EDSA Beverage Design Studio.

The Death Cream is their signature coffee drink but what caught my eye was this limited edition salt-cured egg coffee. If you’ve been to Hanoi, then you’re probably familiar with ca phe trung or Vietnamese egg coffee. This decadent version topped with a thick layer of salt-cured egg is Little Wave’s ode to that iconic Hanoi drink.

Egg coffee in Boracay

Affogato is one of my favorite coffee-based desserts, but it’s even better when made with pistachio ice cream. This pistachio affogato with a potato chip chocolate cookie was a match made in heaven.

Pistachio affogato in Boracay

Little Wave Cafe is located at Hue Hotel, along the main road at Station X. Station X isn’t a true station like Stations 1-3, but more a lifestyle hub located in the inner part of Station 2.

Little Wave Cafe in Boracay

Aside from their specialty coffees, Little Wave also serves breakfast, sandwiches, wraps, and fresh pasta dishes.

Location: Station 2 main road (Station X, Hue Hotels and Resorts)
Operating Hours: 8AM-6PM, daily
What to Order: Specialty coffee

5. Chan’s

Singapore is one of our favorite countries in the world to visit, and a lot of that has to do with the food. Tasty Singaporean dishes like chili crab, laksa, and Hainanese chicken rice are big reasons why trips to Singapore never get old.

Luckily for me, Chan’s was located just a stone’s throw from where we were staying so it was the first place I went to after checking in to our hotel. In true Singaporean hawker fashion, they have a focused menu with just a few dishes – rice bowls, kaya toast, and fish ball soup. I went with the kaya toast and this mixed rice bowl with BBQ pork belly and smoked duck.

Rice bowl in Boracay

The owner of Chan’s was at the stall that day so I asked for her recommendations. She suggested I get the BBQ pork belly and smoked duck but I recommend pairing the BBQ pork belly with this scallion chicken instead.

The smoked duck is delicious but it tastes similar to the BBQ pork belly. Getting the pork belly and scallion chicken will offer more variety in flavor and texture.

Scallion chicken in Boracay

Chan’s offers toast made with traditional kaya spread (coconut jam) but they make them with other types of jam as well, like pandan, salted yema, and durian. I absolutely love durian so that’s what I went with.

The owner told me that durian is their hardest sell but no one needs to be intimidated by this one. The durian flavor is mild and pleasant without any of the fruit’s notorious pungency.

Kaya toast in Boracay

Like a true hawker stall in Singapore, Chan’s is located in a small food court inside Hue Hotel in Station X.

Chan's stall at Hue Hotel in Boracay


Location: Station 2 main road (Station X, Hue Hotels and Resorts)
Operating Hours: 11AM-9PM, daily
What to Order: Rice bowls, kaya toast

6. Bunbun

As described, the food in Boracay island can get a little expensive, especially if you eat at restaurants along White Beach. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find good food for cheap. Located along the main road, Bunbun is the perfect example of that.

Bunbun offers Asian specialties like gyoza, pork char siu, and chicken satay. To be honest, I never expect too much from cheap dim sum places in the Philippines but the pork and shrimp siu mai at Bunbun were surprisingly delicious. The dumplings were a good size too.

Siomai in Boracay

Pictured below is their equally delicious chicken satay rice. The sauce on the chicken satay was super flavorful.

Satay in Boracay

Bunbun is a small restaurant located along the main road, close to D’mall and Balabag Lake.

Bunbun has a few small tables downstairs and four more upstairs.

Location: Station 2 main road (close to D’mall and Balabag Lake)
Operating Hours: 11AM-9PM, daily
What to Order: Pork char siu, chicken satay, siu mai

7. Meze Wrap

Located up the street from Bunbun is Meze Wrap, their sister restaurant. As their name suggests, they offer Mediterranean specialties like kebabs, hummus with pita, and shawarma wraps.

The beautiful dish below is their grilled eggplant hummus. Big enough for two, it’s topped with chopped peanuts, garbanzo beans, sesame seeds, and pickled red onions.

Eggplant hummus in Boracay

If you visit Meze Wrap in groups of two or more, then I recommend getting one of their Meze Trays. They come with two or three skewers of kebab, two sauces of your choice, buttered rice or flatbread, and three side dishes of the day.

We went with the beef, chicken, and pork skewers with curry tahini and garlic cucumber cream. Everything on this tray was delicious.

Kebabs in Boracay

The dining area of Meze Wrap is located on the third floor of this building.

Meze Wrap restaurant in Boracay

The spiral staircase leading up to the third floor is a little precarious (watch out for the overhead wires!) but the food and dining space are worth it. Sit near the balcony and you’ll have great views of Balabag Lake from up here.

Meze Wrap

Location: Station 2 main road (close to D’mall and Balabag Lake)
Operating Hours: 11:30AM-9:30PM, daily
What to Order: Meze trays, kebabs, hummus

8. Hanoi Pho

Vietnamese food is one of our favorite cuisines in the world so we were thrilled to find Hanoi Pho. It’s a small but stylish Vietnamese restaurant located along Road 1-A, on the way to Bulabog Beach.

Hanoi Pho has a focused menu offering a few of our favorite Vietnamese dishes like pho bo (beef pho, pictured below), com ga (chicken rice), goi cuon / cha gio (fresh/fried spring rolls), and banh mi. If you’re jonesing for a good bowl of pho in Boracay, then Hanoi Pho is a great place to have it.

Pho in Boracay

Bun thit nuong is on a short list of our favorite Vietnamese dishes and Hanoi Pho’s rendition is close to the versions we’ve enjoyed in Ho Chi Minh City. If you’ve never had it, it’s a dry vermicelli noodle dish topped with grilled pork, fresh vegetables, crushed peanuts, and a fried spring roll.

Bun thit nuong in Boracay

We love banh mi but unfortunately, this was our least favorite dish of the three. The fillings were generous but the bread lacked the crumbly, airy texture characteristic of the best Vietnamese banh mi. Perhaps if they toasted the bread?

Banh mi in Boracay

Hanoi Pho is located along Road 1-A, between Balabag Lake and Bulabog Beach.

Hanoi Pho restaurant in Boracay

This is pretty much the entire restaurant. As described, it’s a small but well-put-together space that can probably accommodate up to twenty people at a time.

Hanoi Pho restaurant interior

Location: Road 1-A (close to Bulabog Beach)
Operating Hours: 9AM-9PM, daily
What to Order: Pho bo, bun thit nuong

9. Momo Ramen

If Vietnamese pho isn’t your thing, then perhaps you’d be interested in a bowl of ramen instead. Located just a minute down the road from Hanoi Pho is Momo Ramen, a small restaurant that serves ramen and other popular Japanese dishes like chicken karaage, curry rice, tuna tataki, and korokke.

Momo Ramen offers three types of ramen – seafood ramen, tonkotsu ramen, and karamiso ramen. Pictured below is the karamiso ramen which you can get in a spicy or non-spicy version. Both versions were delicious.

Ramen in Boracay

I didn’t realize this at the time but I think Hanoi Pho and Momo Ramen may be owned by the same group (which is common in Boracay). They’re located just a stone’s throw from each other, both restaurants are well-designed, and they each have focused menus offering Asian noodle dishes. Even the menu designs look strikingly similar.

If they are indeed owned by the same people, then it’s no wonder both restaurants serve good food!

Don’t you just love these cherry blossom decorations? We are so missing Japan!

10. Pares Hilton

If you’re looking for good cheap Filipino food, especially after a night of drinking in Boracay, then the hilariously named Pares Hilton is an excellent choice. More on the name later but this restaurant along the Station 2 beachfront specializes in beef pares and other comforting Filipino dishes like silog meals and tokwa’t baboy. They make delicious fruit shakes as well.

Pictured below is the beef pares with unlimited rice. If you’ve never heard of pares, it refers to a type of Filipino braised beef stew. It’s commonly enjoyed for breakfast in the Philippines though it’s one of those all-day breakfast foods that can be eaten at any time of the day.

Pares at Pares Hilton restaurant in Boracay

Tokwa’t baboy is a classic Filipino bar chow pairing of fried tofu and boiled pork (usually ears and/or belly) drenched in a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar, pork broth, onions, scallions, and chili peppers.

Like pork sisig and chicharon bulaklak, tokwa’t baboy is one of our favorite dishes to munch on with beer. The name tokwa’t baboy is short for tokwa at baboy which literally means “tofu and pig”.

Tokwa't baboy in Boracay

Silog meals are popular Filipino breakfast dishes made with some type of meat or fish paired with garlic rice and a fried egg. The most common type of silog are made with beef tapa (tapsilog), longganisa (longsilog), or pork tocino (tocilog), but it can really be made with anything. As you can probably tell, the dish takes the name of the viand it’s made with.

The version below is made with a breaded pork chop hence the name porksilog. It was delicious and definitely something I wouldn’t mind having again, whether sober or drunk.

Porksilog in Boracay

Filipinos love funny puns and this restaurant’s name is a great example of that. Obviously, it’s a humorous play on the famous socialite’s name.

I had heard about Pares Hilton from a meme but I assumed the restaurant was in Manila! To our surprise and delight, it’s located right here in Boracay.

Location: Station 2 beachfront
What to Order: Pares, silog, tokwa’t baboy

11. Boracay Beach Truck

The Boracay Beach Truck is a cute food truck in D’mall comprised of two concepts – Island Bowls and Sunrise Milk Tea. The latter offers Taiwanese boba while the former serves rice and noodle bowls topped with popular dishes from different parts of Asia.

On the menu at Island Bowls are beloved Asian dishes like Chinese sweet and sour pork, Filipino chicken adobo, Korean bibimbap, and Indonesian mie goreng. Being a fan of Panda Express, I had to go with Island Bowl’s version of orange chicken, which I washed down with a cup of my favorite brown sugar boba from Sunrise Milk Tea. So simple yet so satisfying and delicious.

Orance chicken in Boracay

The orange chicken was tasty but this bowl of chicken satay served with peanut sauce over nasi goreng may have been even better. This was seriously delicious!

Satay in Boracay

Boracay Beach Truck is located in D’mall, just off the main road. It looks to be a relatively new restaurant as it doesn’t have a lot of reviews yet, but if this one experience were any indicator, then they shouldn’t have any problems attracting customers. They serve good food at affordable prices, which is rarer than you think in Boracay.

Boracay Beach Truck

Boracay Beach Truck looks like a food truck but they do have a proper dining area on the second floor.

What to Order: Rice and noodle bowls, boba

12. Royal Indian Curry House (RICH)

I love Indian food. In my opinion, Royal Indian Curry House (RICH for short) is the best Indian restaurant in Manila so we were ecstatic to learn that they had just opened a branch in Boracay. Woohoo! We were so excited that our first dinner in Boracay was a no-brainer – we were eating at RICH.

RICH has a thick menu of classic Indian dishes. We kickstarted our dinner with this tasty tray of samosas, which you can get in veg or non-veg versions.

Samosas in Boracay

I usually go for curries at Indian restaurants but this sizzling platter of chicken tikka was a revelation. Charred in parts and slightly tangy in flavor, it was AMAZINGLY delicious.

Chicken tikka in Boracay

I’m a simple guy. If I see chicken tikka masala or butter chicken on a menu then chances are, I’ll order it. Tonight, we went with the butter chicken and it was fantsatic as always.

Butter chicken in Boracay

Butter chicken to me is what Hyderabadi biryani is to my significant other. My wife always order this dish and RICH’s version is fantastic.

Biryani in Boracay

Of course, you can’t order Indian curry without pairing it with some naan bread. For me, dipping freshly baked naan into a pot of warm curry is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Naan bread in Boracay

RICH Boracay is located along the beach in Station 1. Like their restaurant in Poblacion, Makati, this branch is big. It consists of three floors of seating, the top floor being the roofdeck. That’s where we sat.

Operating Hours: 11AM-11PM, daily

13. Donenoo Korean BBQ

Boracay is a top destination for Korean tourists so it’s no surprise that Korean restaurants are a dime a dozen on the island. We love Korean food so we didn’t want to go just anywhere. We wanted to find the best Korean restaurant in Boracay.

With a near-perfect 4.9 Google rating even after 1,100+ reviews (and counting), I think we succeeded when we found Donenoo Korean BBQ.

Banchan in Boracay

Unlimited samgyupsal is a hugely popular (and successful) concept in the Philippines. Initially, I wanted to order meat dishes ala carte but after seeing other customers grilling roll after roll of thinly sliced pork belly, we had to do it too. For just PHP 499 (January 2023) for unlimited samgyupsal, banchan, rice, and a pot of geranjjim (steamed egg), the lunch promo deal was a no-brainer.

Donenoo Korean BBQ offers unlimited samgyupsal or unlimited beef (PHP 699) from 12NN till 5PM daily. A minimum of two people is required to avail of the promo.

Samgyupsal in Boracay

Aside from the quality of the meats, what makes Donenoo so good is that they cook their meat dishes with a combination of charcoal and gas. The charcoal gives the meat that extra smokiness and flavor that you just can’t get when cooking only with gas.

Cooking samgyupsal in Boracay

Like any Korean BBQ restaurant, you can enjoy the freshly grilled meats with rice or wrapped in leafy vegetables. So good!

Samgyupsal with lettuce in Boracay

Donenoo Korean BBQ is located along the main road in Station 1. We checked out many Korean restaurants and based on its reviews, Donenoo has to be one of the best if not the best Korean restaurant in Boracay.

14. barLO (Two Seasons Boracay Resort)

There are a handful of restaurants that many Filipinos have to go to in Boracay. Los Indios Bravos is one, barLO at Two Seasons Boracay Resort is another. Like getting calamansi muffins at Real Coffee or drinking a fruit shake from Jonah’s, ordering the oyster sisig and 4-cheese pizza at barLO has become a Boracay tradition.

If you like pork sisig, then you need to try oyster sisig. It’s delicious and something that you can’t find just anywhere.

Oyster sisig in Boracay

barLO’s 4-cheese pizza isn’t like your typical pizza, but it’s delicious. Made with a combination of mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan, and blue cheese, what makes this pizza special isn’t the cheese, but the crust. It’s made with a thin, almost cracker-like crust that’s crispy and savory-sweet in flavor. Definitely a must-try!

4-cheese pizza in Boracay

As described, barLO is a Boracay institution located at the Two Seasons Boracay Resort in Station 1.

Location: Station 1 beachfront (Two Seasons Boracay Resort)
Operating Hours: 10AM-10PM, daily
What to Order: 4-cheese pizza, oyster sisig

15. Giuseppe Pizzeria & Sicilian Roast

When it comes to pizza, barLO and Aria restaurant in D’mall are legendary in Boracay. Giuseppe Pizzeria & Sicilian Roast is a legend in its own right, but just not in Boracay. At least not yet.

Founded by an Sicilian chef, Giuseppe has been serving some of the best pizza and pasta in Cebu and Bohol for years. Thankfully, they’ve finally opened a restaurant in Boracay and it’s just as good as its predecessors. This eggplant parmigiana starter was marvelous.

Parmigiana in Boracay

This linguine puttanesca was fantastic as well. If I remember correctly, all of Giuseppe’s pasta dishes are made with homemade pasta.

Puttanesca in Boracay

Like me, my wife is predictable. If she sees truffle on a menu, then she’ll order it.

Giuseppe makes many amazing pizzas but if you like truffles, then you need to get this tartufone. It’s an earthy delight topped with seasonal mushrooms and black and white truffles. Oh my.

Pizza in Boracay

We were a bit worried when we heard that this Boracay branch was a franchise, but it’s every bit as good as the restaurant in Bohol. If you’re in the mood for authentic Italian cuisine in Boracay, then look no further than Giuseppe Pizzeria & Sicilian Roast.

16. Two Brown Boys

We were drawn to this bar for two reasons. One, we heard that they offer PHP 100 (January 2023) happy hour cocktails from 4-9PM. And two, they’re said to serve some of the best burgers in Boracay. Both turned out to be true.

Two Brown Boys offers many burgers on their menu but this beefy beauty called Sir Matt is one of their bestsellers. It’s topped with bacon, cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, and pico de gallo. Yum.

Burger in Boracay

Aside from burgers, Two Brown Boys offers a good selection of breakfast dishes, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and bar chow as well. Called cheesy loggers, these thin rolled-up pancakes are filled with ham and cheese and pan-fried in garlic butter.

Cheesy loggers in Boracay

Amaretto sour was our go-to cocktail in Boracay. We had it at many restaurants and bars but the concoction at Two Brown Boys was one of our favorites. Definitely check out this bar if you’re looking for a good place to enjoy happy hour in Boracay.

Cocktail in Boracay

Two Brown Boys is located along Road 1-A, en route to Bulabog Beach.

Aside from their tasty burgers and delicious cocktails, we loved the music, vibe, and excellent service at Two Brown Boys. It was easily our favorite bar in Boracay.

17. Halomango

There are many delicious tropical fruits in the Philippines, but the mango is definitely king. We have the sweetest mangoes in the world so it’s no surprise that this mango dessert shop – Halomango – is one of the most popular restaurants in Boracay.

Halomango makes these incredibly delicious desserts consisting of mango soft serve ice cream and fresh mango chunks served over a bed of ice. We enjoyed many delicious desserts in Boracay, but this was easily our favorite. It’s so darn good.

Mango dessert in Boracay

Aside from their larger mango dessert bowls, Halomango also offers these mango ice cream cones. Served without ice, these are good too though we preferred the larger bowls with crushed ice.

Mango soft serve in Boracay

I believe there are two or three Halomango shops in Boracay – two in D’mall and one more along the beach in Station 2. It didn’t matter what time it was, there were always customers waiting to get their hands on these irresistible mango desserts.

What to Order: Mango desserts

18. Ice Flakes

Savory Korean dishes like galbi, japchae, and pajeon are amazing, but so are Korean desserts. When it comes to desserts in Korea, there’s nothing more popular than the shaved ice dessert known as bingsu.

Ice Flakes in Boracay makes terrific bingsu flavored with different ingredients like mango, coconut, halo-halo, and watermelon. Pictured below is one of their most popular flavors of bingsu – mango coconut. It’s served with slivers of fresh mango and toasted coconut flakes.

Mango bingsu in Boracay

We also tried their matcha and durian flavors. Everything was delicious, but the durian bingsu was definitely my favorite. Even the durian haters in our group loved it.

Durian bingsu in Boracay

Ice Flakes has two branches in Boracay – one in D’mall and another along the beach in Station 2.

The Philippines is famous for its mangoes, but it’s also known for its coconuts. If you want the best of both worlds, then head on over to Coco Mama. They make these beautiful coconut ice cream desserts made with slivers of coconut served in fresh coconut shells.

You can get yours with coconut and/or coconut pandan ice cream and have it topped with chunks of fresh mango. Perfect for your Instagram feed, Coco Mama’s desserts are as tasty as they are pretty.

20. Jonah’s Fruit Shake

For people who’ve been going to Boracay since its early days, two brands are synonymous with the island – Cocomangas (and its bar Moondogs) and Jonah’s Fruit Shake. Cocomangas is now closed but thankfully, Jonah’s is still going strong.

Many Boracay restaurants and cafes now serve fruit shakes but none are as iconic as Jonah’s. Here I am proudly showing off my mango papaya fruit shake from Jonah’s, served with an edible rice straw.

Can you really say your Boracay trip is complete without enjoying a Jonah’s fruit shake?

Mango shake in Boracay

I went to their beachfront stand in Station 2 but Jonah’s Fruit Shake has a few outlets in Boracay. I believe they’re all in Stations 1 and 2.

Take a stroll along White Beach or explore D’mall and you’ll see that there’s no shortage of restaurants in Boracay. I wanted to cap this list at twenty but here are few more restaurants that you may want to consider.

Like barLO, Los Indios Bravos at White House Beach Resort is a Boracay institution. Almost every Filipino who’s been to Boracay will tell you to eat there. They offer a good range of steaks and international dishes along with an extensive collection of Filipino craft beer.

If you’re jonesing for Mexican food, then Muchos and Guajillo are solid choices. For fresh seafood platters, Mama’s Fish House is a popular spot while Pig Out Bistro is often recommended for their crab burger.

Needless to say, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding good food on Boracay island. No matter where you go, don’t forget to take a break between bites and take that epic Boracay photo. Watching the sunset from White Beach is a sight you won’t soon forget.
