Their foods were delicious (as usual) and staff were nice. A must-try restaurant while in the island of Boracay. Just located in the heart of D’Mall.

This was the best food experience we had during our Boracay visit. Those BBQ ribs are out of this world, trust me! And the prices are reasonable. I honestly recommend it.

Our fave place for lunch and dinner...so far been here 2x and while we’re still here. Might go again 😀😍😎 Just overall happy we are very happy with their service, quality of food, portion, though can be pricey but definitely worth the value 🔘Service -...very friendly, attentive, and helpful staff. Will share you their best seller dishes. 🔘Menu - obviously more on to BBQ/grilled food. Limited to chicken and pork meat I guess.. and some juices and soft drinks... 🔘Quality of Food and Portion - definitely great portion. Another restaurant with generous portion that can be shared, good value for us that don’t eat much. Quality, absolutely delicious and tasty 😋 🔘Price - can be pricey but really worth the value and for everyone to try. Well recommended for BBQ/Grilled Filipino Food when in Boracay within D’MallMore

Unfortunately I got terrible food poisoning last night from here. I was very sick for 2 day's. I know it was from here as my husband and I had the same breakfast that morning, we shared the stacked onion rings, then I had the 'Best...Chicken' dish, and he had the baby back ribs, he was fine I was so ill 😱 this is the 3rd time I've got bad food poisoning on our 2 month trip traveling around the Philippines, I think the food hygiene standards here are terrible. And I've traveled all over Asia, India and the Americas and never got food poisoning. Very disappointed.More

This place is located in d'mall . It is always extremely busy. we had the onion rings, ribs and half chicken . Overall i thought it was a very good . The only two negatives for me were that i thought the onion rings could...have used some seasoning. That being said they were cooked perfectly and the batter was excellent . Another small thing that bothered me about the restaurant was that they do not have a bathroom . You have to go across the alley and pay 10 pesos to use a bathroom. I would rate the place a solid C+.More

I first discovered this food chain while vacationing with my gf in El Nido, Palawan. We took a trike to the nearby beach as was recommended. We found the place in a newly built tiny outdoor mall. That one served absolutely delicious food. There was...a power outage during our meal but it was still delicious. When I saw the long lines here at d*mall on Boracay I expected the same quality and great taste. I was so disappointed. There were several problems, the food is not stocked well to feed the large crowds of tourists, the flavors are significantly milder and less flavorful as the one in Palawan. They ran out of my order and was replaced with a different, more expensive option without consulting me first. I'm disappointed overall with how they managed the restaurant and food available. My other option was McDonald's at the end of d*mall near the little grocery store but that one also ran out of food. Considering that mass crowds of food, the demand was too much for the supply and people left upset there too. Not enough food in this tourist destination is a significant problem.More

This was another place in Dmall that had long queues to get a seat for a meal, we decided to try in the afternoon, so we didn’t have to wait so long but even then at 3pm it had a long queue very popular with...Koreans. Onions rings we so good!! We both ordered steaks, however these were not steaks, these we like a mall piece of snitzel. I asked for well done and husband rare but there was no way you could have rare as only a couple of mm thick. The flavours of the meal were beautiful but don’t ‘expect to be getting steak.More

This is apparently a must-go for a lot of Korean tourists. We tried 3 raved-about dishes: The onion ring tower, the baby back ribs, and the lemon butter shrimp aioli. The onion ring tower was nice and crispy but it was more of an instagram...moment than a get-in-my-belly moment. The baby back ribs were great. The meat just falls off the ribs and the potato and paprika stir-fry side it comes with was delicious. The lemon butter shrimp aioli was dry but I wouldn’t say it was tasteless. That’s all. Overall, I’d say it’s a good price for a decent meal, but not worth a long wait in line.More

We were wandering at D'mall for 2 nights and we noticed that this restaurant always have a long queue with mostly foreign tourists. We tried to eat here on our 3rd and last night and luckily the queue are not that long. We ordered their...best sellers: Sizzling Baby Back ribs, Rib Eye steak, and Mushroom Garlic steak. They were all good and fits the price which tells us why most foreign tourists would line up here. We were just wondering why we didn't even saw a Filipino eating here. Would definitely recommend it :)More
