Best Restaurants in Boracay
There’s a good range of restaurants in Boracay, mostly because the seas around the Philippine island are so rich with fish, shellfish and other delicacies. Since the fruits of the sea can be prepared in a huge variety of different ways, the choice of restaurants serving them is similarly diverse. On that note, here are some of the best restaurant in Boracay
This trendy restaurant focuses on carefully crafted healthy Filipino meals. The sustainable enterprise highlights locally-sourced produce and the freshest ingredients from suppliers in the community. Nonie’s has great options for vegetarians and specialize in a wide array of smoothies and pressed juices. Try their elegant pumpkin soup followed by a plate of bao sliders – which also has a vegan option. End the meal with the guilt-free flourless chocolate cake.
Established well over a decade ago, it is one of the most successful restaurants in Boracay – serving a selection of soups, tapas and five types of paella that blend Spanish and Philippine influences flawlessly. Their famed tapas night (which happens every Saturday), offers a hearty sampling of small platter bar chow. Don’t forget to visit their newly opened delicatessen Gusto y Gustos, which serves deli sandwiches using freshly baked bread – filled with succulent meats, Cubano and smokehouse grills and European cheese, smothered in the best condiments and organically grown vegetables from Remedio’s farm in Aklan.
Sunny Side Café
Before exploring the sandy beaches of Boracay, start the day right with breakfast or brunch at Sunny Side Café. The venue offers all-day contemporary breakfast dishes, achieving the perfect fusion of Filipino and American cuisines. The relaxing café sells delicious artisan coffees that you can pair with fluffy pancakes or a brilliant twist on the grilled cheese sandwich served with bacon and mango.
This refreshing open-sided venue inside the D’Mall offers all-day Filipino and American breakfasts, healthy salads, and homemade pastries and bread. The perfect place to recover after a night of debauchery – order brunch and go for the classic eggs benedict.
If there’s such a thing as affordable haute cuisine in Boracay, Prana fits the bill. It is the signature restaurant of the Mandala Bay and Spa, who use local produce from their urban farm. The farm is located approximately 100km from Boracay, which in hand supports local producers. Headed by Executive Chef Peter Montemayor, who lived in Thailand and Bali, the spices and tastes of these two countries have been added to Filipino dishes. Cool off with a refreshing Calamansi mint slushie, made from a local citrus that is plucked straight from the garden.
