The food is good, I give you that. But you can go somewhere cheaper with the same quality of food and service in Boracay. I like the location of this restaurant as this is a beach front restaurant.

We dined as a party of 4 and were seated near the front - great for people watching. The food was prepared quickly and generously portioned. In addition to a couple orders of prawns, 4 bowls of rice, and beef 2 ways, we shared the Inihaw Sampler: grilled chicken, mussels, liempo, squid, shrimp, and bbq pork (photo attached). Everything tasted... More

The food quality here is as good as their other locations in metro Manila. You will not be disappointed with any dish on the menu. We were a party on 10 and found every dish to be delish.

The restaurant is chic and modern and serves Filipino fusion foods. It is Station 2 and the view of the sea is somewhat obstructed. It is very clean and orderly, and the staff is efficient as well as attentive, and service is fast. The food is good and properly presented. However the prices are on the high-side.

So had dinner one night with my husband and then for lunch the next day with my family. Great Filipino cuisine! If you don't know what to order - try the sampler dish that has a little bit of everything! We had the lechon baboy, crispy pata, the sampler, palabok, BBQ chicken, eggplant, cheese covered mussels, garlic rice and the... More

Mesa was probably the best restaurant along stations 1,2 and 3. Conveniently located on board walk with beach sitting at night. This is a good example you pay what you get. The restaurant is on the pricier side, but service and food quality was excellent. While you may find cheaper places to eat, but if comfort is important to you,... More

To be perfectly honest, i was bitterly disappointed with the food on my holiday throughout Boracay. it was the biggest and only genuine dissapointment i found about the island. Our visit here was rather typical of the majority of my dining experiences throughout my stay, i would describe it as uneventful but adequate. Messa is worth a visit if your... More

Compared to other places, we thought their portions were smaller. Good food. Service could be improved.
