“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I have never written a bad review and have enjoyed this restaurant in the past...but I have to say this evening at Dos Mestizos was awful. Two of us ordered a 270 peso ceadar salad, it was terrible we tried to add lemon, more dressing, cheese, nothing helped so we returned them to the kitchen. It was not till the end of our meal when the uneaten , terrible salads were still on the bill that we were informed if we did not pay for them our server would have to. To which we replied, "are you insane?" Needless p say , after 6 years of business, this will be our last time eating at Dos Mestizos.

We are sorry to hear about your dining experience at our restaurant recently. This has been the only complaint we have received about our salad so far and we shall look at what can be improved with our current recipe. Rest assured that your feedback will lead us to improve the quality of our dishes even more.

“Quality Spanish food anf tapas”

High quality, authentic Spanish food at Dos Mestizos, only about 50 metres from the famed White Beach on Boracay. Highly recommended for all occasions.

“Tapas Unlimited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had dinner at Dos Mestizos over the New Year holidays. We were a group of 22 so we opted for the tapas buffet--very extensive array of dishes: chorizos, torta de patatas, olives, albondigas, croquetas, jamon serrano and many more--all simply delicious! Most memorable was a very simple dish of small shrimps that had no "adornment" but tasted so fresh and sweet. We ordered paella for everyone to share and pitchers of sangria of course. We paid a very reasonable P750 each and one child was charged halfprice.
