Great Spanish food! Had their salad Verde, paella Valenciana, language, and fish in herb sauce. Really pricey though.

A must-try when you’re in Boracay! This is one of the reasons why we went back to Boracay last month. Our last night’s dinner was this mouth-watering Paella Valenciana – a mixed meat and seafood paella. Savor and consume this with a glass of Margarita or bottles of cold beer for additional pleasure. For our health-conscious friends, they ordered Paella de Pollo (Chicken paella) but you can also try Paella Verduras (Vegetarian Paella).

Tried this place because of all the positive reviews here on Looloo. Was a little hard to find though because it is in a hidden alley a few steps away from La Carmela. Been craving for paella for a few weeks now, and who would've thought that I'd get my fix here. Ordered the calamares fritos (the boyfie liked it), callos, and the star of this place, the seafood paella.

It is indeed on the pricey side, and I feel like I could get the same quality in Manila for less, but the taste was really authentic and worth the extra money.

The drink however, was overrated. 100 bucks for iced tea with "organic" honey. It was bland. I think I would've enjoyed army navy's blend better.

Backlog:

Their Paella Negra is AMAZING! 128516128516128516 A bit on the pricey side but worth every penny! This is where we had our last dinner in the island before going back to Manila the next morning. I couldn't stop dreaming about our dining experience afterwards!

Can't wait to come back! 128525128525128525128525128525

First things first: I am so very sorry for the unappealing photo of this paella negra. The resto was dimly lit and my only light source was the open kitchen beside our table. I'm actually hesitant to post this photo because it doesn't live up to looloo's blog feature which I was lucky enough to be included in (yay kilig)... I feel the need to explain tuloy. Hahaha. Sorryyy.

Anyway, onto the food! Let me rephrase my first statement up there to describe this dish:

...unappealing photo of THE BEST paella negra I've had.

Yes! Well, to be fair and honest, I haven't had many prior to this. BUT it says quite a lot when you and your friends have your first bite and it made you all look at one another as if you've tasted heaven for the first time, right? That's what exactly happened to us, haha.

The paella was rich, without being nakakaumay. They definitely did not skimp on the squid ink! The rice was cooked almost to the texture of risotto, which I loved. I'm no expert on this but hey, if you love it, you love it!

We also ordered the blue cheese croquettes but I was too focused on the paella that the croquettes failed to make an impression on me.

Serving: We ordered the small plate. The waiter said was good for 2-4 people. In our case, it would've been good for 4-5!

Price: ~800 for the small plate of paella

Service: So-so.

Experience: I called for reservation because I've read a few blogs saying that the place was usually packed. Thankfully, there were available seats for us that night, and the resto wasn't really full when we got there. I also made an advance order for the paella when I called so that it'd be ready by the time we get to the place.

Like what I said above, the restaurant is dimly lit. There was a fake candle on our table, whose flame looked so real, by the way. Haha. The interiors gave out that old Spanish vibe, perfectly accentuated by the Spanish singer roaming about the room, singing Spanish songs and playing guitar to the guests. (So many Spanish in one sentence!) Lastly, most diners during our visit were groups of foreigners.

Location: Station 3. We weren't sure where this exactly was, so we took a tricycle to be safe. The ride costs P60.00 coming from Station 1. Long trip, but worth it!

Five stars for the paella negra, as this has set the bar for me! :)

Day1: Dinner

Oh yeah, after Real Coffee, we had a chori burger to satisfy all our cravings hehe.

Nweiz, cant believe that Ive/we've never tried out this place which was right next to the old Asya where we've stayed at a couple of times before! 128514 I just loved that place!

If you want paella, this is the place to go to! Everything was delicious!

Paella Negra - get ready to smile!
Salpicao - wasnt maalat at all!
Gambas

-1 tho for the service! it was more of this one waitress. we figured she was the girl my friend talked to on the fone to make reservations and to preorder the paella since she was very unpleasant on the fone as she was in person.

Wasnt smiling at all, no greeting as we came in and none when we left, too. We even passed her on the way out since she was by the door and didnt even open it. At least the other waiter said "Thank you!"

Oh well, we did go there for the food & it lived up to our expectations! Id definitely go back despite her sucky attitude!

Loved loved loooovveed!!! Worth the trek to station 3 from Fairways!

We ate there for my friend's birthday and everything was great! Service, ambiance and food! Even the owner was great (and so gwapo :p).

We ordered the croquetas de jamón but accidentally gave us the blue cheese version. We ate 3 of it na and we were dyahe to ask them about it but they were so gracious about it and still served our original order!

After that we had the calamares Griots which brought back memories from when I had the same on my own birthday in Barcelona. This place is winning bit by bit!

We also had the homemade chorizo and this is a must order IMHO. It was so good I dreamt about it later that night.

We also had the bacalao and the paella negra as mains. Everything was amazing! We washed it all off with sangria.

Since it was my friend's birthday we asked the restaurant to help us celebrate. We called them beforehand. They were so accommodating and so organized that we were able to surprise our friend so well! The waitresses were giving signals to each other so they can execute the surprise. They gave us bread pudding as cake and the band sang a lively happy birthday.

All in all it was one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant

well, truth be told, I may be biased because i do love spanish food. but the paella valenciana of dos mestizos is deliciously tasty, up to the last grain of the wonderfully-colored rice. it is major YUM ! the tripes in callos is tender chewy and the sauce, sticky, just the way it should be. the salpicao was cooked properly (medium to medium rare in the middle) and one can taste the play of olive oil and garlic. the interiors is distinct & reminds me of some of my favorite spanish restaurants in manila like alba's. love, love, love this place in boracay. oh, and the sangria, deliciously refreshing and intoxicating. 127863127863127863127863127863

Now that is one mean paella dish. We had calamares fritos for appetizer followed by a heapful serving of seafood paella.

I love the place, the traditional Spanish music, and most importantly, the service. The waiter served the paella on our plates in front of us. Talk about great hospitality.

This is in Station 3, but is definitely worth the long walk. :-) Yo voy a comer en la restorante tambien! ;-) Muy delicioso!

Reputedly the best restaurant in Boracay and despite the rather dodgy location in station 3, I would tend to agree.

They have wonderful interiors, an excellent wine selection and a very formidable tapas menu paired with excellent service.

Go for the blue cheese croquettas, the octopus in olive oil and the chorizo.

Very highly recommended.
