Best Boracay Restaurants – Real Tea & Tea Cafe

It may be called Real Coffee, but there’s another reason you’ll need to be stopping by at this Boracay restaurant. And it’s teasing you right there in the photo above…
The Calamansi Muffin! One of the baking kingdom’s most hidden gems. Warm, moist, and tender with a tangy citrus glaze. These fluffy goods will have your stomach singing like Pavarotti.
Real Coffee & Tea Cafe is a great spot to come and grab breakfast. Mama Lee is regularly whisking up a mean omelette, and needless the to say, both the coffee and tea are indeed real.
You better be chowing down at Boracay’s home of Calamansi Muffins!

Best Boracay Restaurants – I Love Backyard BBQ

Anyone who doesn’t love a backyard BBQ, take a stroll over to your nearest mirror, and take a long hard look at yourself.
This Boracay restaurant has played perfectly off the fact that travelers love of good ol’ BBQ.
Grab a napkin, the baby back ribs here will indeed leave you drooling like a baby. So very, very good. I Love Backyard BQQ has all the grill bases covered; steaks, seafood, chicken, ribs (of course) – what you want, baby they got it.
Located on the buzzy streets of D’Mall, this Boracay restaurant is well worth a sizzle.

Best Boracay Restaurants – D’ Talipapa

One of Poseidon’s greatest exports, D’ Talipapa is an absolute mecca for seafood fanatics. The best seafood restaurant in Boracay.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a greater variety of fresh seafood all under one roof during the whole of your travels.
So what are we talking here…
Prawns so big they must have taken tips from Lance Armstrong on performance enhancing drugs, luscious lobsters, clammy clams, crabs, oysters, other shellfish… The list goes on!
Choose whichever fishy takes your fancy, and it will be cheffed up to perfection.
As glorious as this seafood dining experience is, the shopping experience can be the exact opposite. Be prepared to have crabs flung in your face, shrimp stuck up places they’re not sanctioned to go, and clams clamming up your personal space as vendors take it to new levels to be noticed.
A spectacle to behold.

Best Boracay Restaurants – Spider House

Right, so after the chaotic scenes of D’ Talipapa, we’re going to take you to a dining experience a world away from the hustle and bustle.
If the photo above doesn’t paint a clear enough picture, Spider House is definitely amongst the must-eat restaurants in Boracay. It’s the perfect spot to grab some dinner and cocktails, with the sunset staring at you from across the horizon.
Romances, bromances, and hoemances can do nothing but blossom in this scenario.
Spider House chefs up some incredibly fresh sushi and poignant pizzas, as well as some tidy rice dishes if neither of those take your fancy.
Post munch food coma? Let’s hope so. The floating raft next to the restaurant provides the perfect excuse to be a beached whale after the meal. Top notch stuff.

Best Boracay Restaurants – Halowich

All these savoury shenanigans have really got our sweet side waning. It’s time for a hit of ice cold sugary goodness.
Although it doesn’t look like much from the outside. The bells and whistles that were left out of Halowich’s interior design have all gone into creating the perfect iced desserts.
Cue the glorious image above…
A scintillating portrait of their mango soft serve ice cream. You will get served, multiple times.
Halowich has also mastered the art of the Korean shaved ice desserts; and not only have they mastered them, but they’ve super sized them. A portion fit for the Incredible Hulk during hulking season.
Ice ice baby.

Best Boracay Restaurants – Aria Cucina Italiana

Hey mambo, mambo Italiano…
A very intimate dinner spot, especially due to the fact you’ll be hugging the white sands and clear blue waters of the Boracay coastline.
No prizes for guessing, but yes, Aria Cucina Italiana is of course an Italian restaurant. One with a very cutting edge and modern menu, which has been inspired by the coastal regions of the Mediterranean.
Pizzas and pastas so good, Julius Caesar is considering coming back out of retirement to try them.
Inside scoop…
Be sure to try their Calamansi Sorbet. That is all.
