Boracay Menu

Bars & Restaurants

There are so many restaurants that some have to tempt customers with surprisingly inexpensive, yet quite sumptuous buffets, ranging from P75 to P 120. Others have concentrated on one particular kind of food to attract customers.

In Angol the Starfire can be recommended for its inexpensive menu of the day. Melinda's Garden Restaurant is a pleasant place with excellent Filipino cooking and typical European dishes. The fruit salads and fruit juices are particularly good in the Jolly sailor. Next door in Dada's Restaurant, the fish can be recommended.

The Sundown Restaurant has good German, Austrian and Swiss food, especially its popular dinner buffet (seafood) every Wednesday and Sunday, costing about P200. The Swiss Inn, not surprisingly, offers almost exclusively Swiss food. The Thai dlent food in the Sulu Thu Thai Restaurant is excellent. For about P25 you can eat marvelous Philippine food in the Honey Bee Restraunt and Nene Ball Food's House both in Talipapa Market St.

Manggayad seems to have more European restaurants than anything else. You can eat good German food in pleasant surroundings at the Victory Bar & Restaurant. They also have seafood from the grill and a daily set menu for about P100. Chez De Paris is a place for French food, and the Bamboo Restaurant for Swiss.

The Green Yard features Mongolian barbecue every evening, where you can eat as much as you want for P135, while Nigi Nigi Nu Noos has an excellent four-course meal every evening for P100. The daily set menu at Alice in Wonderland for P95 can also be recommended, as can their fish dishes. If you can find it, the Ati-Atihan Restaurant is good value.

In Balabag, the modest Sea Lovers Restaurant next to the little bridge serves an excellent bulalo, a strong tasting vegetable soup with beef shank, as well as other outstanding Filipino dishes. On the other side of the bridge, the restaurant Zur kleinen Kneipe is popular for good, filling German food, and the daily set menu in the Golden Sun Restaurant is excellent value at P75. Zorbas has Greek and Filipino food, La Reserve serves real French cuisine (wines and cognac too), while the El Toro Restaurant offers Spanish food like paella, plus sangria by the carafe for about P 100.

The ambience is part of what makes True Food popular; they are near the Bazura Bar and offer Indian and vegetarian food. The Red Coconut serves Chinese and European dishes, Jony 's Place has Mexican food (and excellent Margaritas, happy hour is between 5 and 7 pm), while Jonah's is popular for its fruit juices. A superb breakfast can be had at the English Bakery & Tea Room, which also has establishments in Angol and Manggayad.

Imported delicacies and red or white wines are available at the Island Delight and Aloja the Shop.
