Dining at Rima was a beautiful experience.

It’s one of Shangri-la’s restaurant nestled amongst the tree-tops overlooking the resort with lushed foliage as backdrop with a sweeping view of the sea. If I do win the #loolooDroneGiveaway, I sure would go back to Rima on my next trip to Boracay to capture the beauty of this place.

It’s a very intimate setting for your romantic dinner.

We had the 4-course degustation menu.

Amuse bouche was a light, delicious potato mousse. Followed by yellowfin tuna tartare with caviar, avocado, and clear tomato jelly. The flavors mingled perfectly. Needless to say, the caviar made it a truly an outstanding meal :)

It was followed with homemade ravioli with liquid parmesan with zucchini and capsicum sauce. This was very filling! The ravioli had very savory stuffing.

The main course was the 16-hour slow-cooked suckling pig with red cabbage, shallots, mustard demi-glace. It’s basically a “porchetta”, so it had nice layers of stuffing, meat, fat, and skin, This is was really really good. The pork skin was thin, crunchy packed with so much flavor!

Lastly, the dessert. We had the hazelnut praline mousse and black sesame sponge and yogurt ice cream. This was one of best desserts I have had. I normally don’t care much for the dessert but this one was an exemption.

I was very lucky to have it twice during our stay. First was the more *basic* one when we had it for dinner on our first night and the second was during an event I attended before we left and they served the same dessert but much-improved version with TRUFFLES! The “enhanced” version was called “forest of chocolate” with raspberry. It was truly heavenly! It had very interesting layers of flavor that you all could do was close your eyes to savor each bite :)

My friend and I wanted to make the most our stay in the resort and we needed an excuse to dress up nicely for the night so we decided to have dinner here. 128569

I love you, Rima! 128571128571128571

Our dinner was absolutely excellent. The food, the ambiance and the people made the whole experience just great. Expensive, true, but they sure know how to give their guests the most value for their money. 128568

To start the meal, all guests are given a bread basket and an Amuse Bouche, which was a potato foam that night. The bread basket came with a selection of spreads and they were all awesome. The breads themselves were amazing! The appetizer was amazing too, I tasted a hint of Truffle Oil which brought out so much flavor on the dish. They really did get us more excited for our mains. 128569

I had the Spinach Risotto as recommended by our amazing server, Erica. She also recommended the Squid Ink Taglioni from their selection of pastas so my friend ordered it. Both were excellent! I absolutely loved the risotto, so creamy and wonderful with the cheese crisps and seared foie gras on top. OMG ansarap! It's so rich too! The taglioni was incredible! Every bite had the nice flavor of squid and the roasted cherry tomatoes gave it a slight sweetness. Delicious! The pieces of seafood put the pasta dish together! 128571

While eating, we were greeted by our server again and she told us about their chef. Chef Omar Ugoletti boasts of two Michelin stars before joining the team in Shangri-La Boracay. It sure manifested in the food. The ingredients they use taste fresh, amazing! And their pastas are hand made everyday. I really loved that. 128568

I look forward to coming back, or to try other outlets in the resort! 128571

PS: I think I said amazing a zillion times on this review. 128569 It really was that good!

Excellent food + excellent service + romantic ambience = loved loved loved our first experience at Rima.

It was Pangga's surprise birthday dinner for me. Shangrila Boracay offers free shuttle from DMall to the hotel. Once we boarded the Shangrila van, we were treated superbly by the staff, we were welcomed to the hotel lobby, directed to the shuttle to the restaurant, then welcomed warmly again at the restaurant.

They made us feel at home, very attentive, not like the social, cold treatment at other 5-star hotel restaurants.

I ordered the steak, it was very good & i loved the foie gras & mashed potato, not so overwhelming, just perfect accompaniment to the steak.

Pangga's ordered Ravioli con guancia di vitello brasato al vino rosso, serviti con salsa di zucca e parmigiano e crema di tartufo or in English
Freshly-made Braised veal cheek ravioli, pumpkin and parmesan sauce, truffle cream. At first bite she whispered "ang sarap." That's rare from a chef w/ impeccable taste like her. The combination of all the varied tastes were perfect.

To top it off, Rima staff gave me a complimentary chocolate gelato cake for my birthday.

All in all, it was a perfect dinner for my birthday. Thank you Pangga and Rima for making it special.
