I'm not a huge fan of crab. I find it too tedious to eat. But I would order Chili Crab during my trips to Singapore since I at the very least appreciate the sauce that goes with it. Nothing like mantou dipped in Chili Crab sauce! I'm staying in Hampstead Boutique Hotel and in the walk up to the property,... More

Arrived and didn't have any cigars. Complete waste of time. Took the staff a good 15 minutes to inform me that I was waiting in vain.

After a week in Boracay, we realize the food on this island is quite bad. 8H was the first restaurant we tried (since we were staying at the hotel) and, after trying many different restaurants, we conclude that 8H was really one of the best on this island. We only had one meal there excluding the complimentary breakfast. The staff... More

We had crabs (both the chili and the garlic) for dinner at the rooftop and every order (salpicao, bagnet, shrimps) we had was just great and had it served at the rooftop. Imagine what they had to go through with all our extra orders and request. The price was unexpected (for all seven of us) as it was truly affordable.... More

Tried hampstead as I was looking for a chill place away from the noise of white beach. Nice place to relax with a beautiful rooftop view! I really like their pasta, esp the penne arabiata - big servings and not the usual sweet sauce like in many restaurants on the island. My friend ordered the burger - huge! And we... More

Great ambiance in the Bistro, staff is very helpful with recommendations and they speak/understand very good english!! Such a wonderful place to get away from the touristy crowds on Boracay. The crab is amazing!!!! I recommend sitting upstairs on the rooftop and ordering food upstairs so you can enjoy the scenery and watch the sun go down. Will be back... More
