“High class dining, delicious Filipino food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

As one of the three upmarket restaurants attached to the Boracay Regency, one would expect a high class dining experience with prices to match. The food and service here was certainly top notch, but the prices not ridiculous. Sure it is more expensive than your basic Boracay establishment, but you don't feel it is overpriced considering the atmosphere, decor, service and food. Everything we ordered was great, including a good selection of vegetarian dishes (my wife is a veggie). We only had one dinner here, but wish we had been more.

“Filipino with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Modern Filipino fare, and not the typical Adobo, pancit dishes. The fish and seafood dishes are a must, I wish Mesa would open in the UK!

“Delicious, well prepared Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Mesa offers a really good filipino menu, with a twist. Everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious and we all ate more than we should have, just out of pure enjoyment.

My only negative point would be the drinks menu; whilst it was varied it was very expensive compared to the rest of the island and they do not have a 'Happy Hour'. In the end we bought a carafe between us and whilst it means you get a drink at a reasonable price the cocktails available in this option are limited and it also restricts you to having a cocktail that everyone wants

“Great for a spot of lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Mesa is part of the Boracay Regency Hotel it sits on the beach at Station 2. We ate at Mesa for lunch twice. I had the BBQ pork skewers both times cause it was fantastic. Just the right size for lunch (got 4 small skewers), extremely tasty. Just got this with a serve of rice. They do a good range from chicken, pork to seafood. Definitely worth a visit. Service is very good too, we had Aldrin both times who was lovely. Dont go past it, stop and eat.

“Great Sea Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I had the Sea Bass. Our table was right next to the beach trail and we enjoyed watching people walk by. The waiter cut my fish and served me.
