Paella, Fish, meatballs and salad were excellent quality of food, and prepared very well and tasty. The complete... More

We tried the tapas - white wine mussel and fried calamari as well as the fresh seafood paella. The white wine mussel and paella are really good. Must try!

Had high expectation since we read a lot of good reviews on this restaurant. Looked hard to find this place since it is not on the main beach road, and wished we didn't. We ordered 1) a small jar of sangria - It was light in wine and heavy in sugar, so tasted like fruit punch. 2) Caesar salad -... More

We were surprised to see this Spanish restaurant tucked in an alley in Boracay. The place had an authentic ambience of a spanish tapas bar complete with a bull's head with swords stuck to it. It was dimly lit with an old map of the philippines painted on one wall and old photographs of boracay people on another. They had... More

The food was so delicious. We shared 4 plates of tapas between two very hungry people. We had meatballs in tomato sauce which were so tender and yummy we ordered a second plate. We also had the shrimp in garlic and chilli and beef pieces in garlic marinade. Everything was of very high standard and cooked to perfection. They served... More

Our party of 6 eagerly made our way down an alley near La Carmela de Boracay Hotel in Station 3. It was a fine moonlit night that was a prelude to a delectable gastronomic experience consisting of tasty and well prepared tapas and probably the best Paella Valenciana and Sangria in Boracay. The food, ambiance and service all contributed to... More

I did not read any reviews before going to Dos Mestizos. I read about the Saturday night tapas bar and live music on a Boracay blog and just had to try it out. Never having tapas before I cannot compare it to other tapas but this was one of the best meals I have ever eaten! They had, I think,... More

My family comes to Boracay every year, so this was not the first time that we visited dos mestizos. This year we got even more excited; the menu is the same, but the food tastes even better. It is great that the owners/managers are looking for improvements, not like other restaurants that at the moment they see they are popular... More

Very good tapas and excellent paella (we tried the valenciana one). The red sangria is also very good. We stayed in Boracay for a week and had dinner two times at Dos Metizos. The best restaurant we tried in the island !
