Its a great location, but is let down by the high prices for uninspired and bland food.

Service was poor, very quick to get the order, but slow to bring drinks and the bill.

Best thing was the orange juice, it was quite a large size, tasty and cold.

It is a great people watching spot!

My partner and I had breakfast here. Most of the items indicated on their menu has already run out. I ordered LongSiLog and was greatly disappointed with the serving portion. 2 pcs of longganisa the size of a thumb sliced open. I ordered an orange juice and was also disappointed because it tasted more of water and was priced at 120 pesos. I think it was only a piece of orange that was squeezed and then they poured chunks of ice into my glass.
My partner ordered for a daing na bangus but was told they have run out of fish so he ordered for a tocino instead but it tasted terrible. Their array of seafood outside of their restaurant looks fresh but they seem to have the most expensive platter ... 1000 pesos for a buffet. You can get something budget friendly on other restaurants with a very good location and classy looking ambience. Paradiso Grill looks like a typical run down carinderia or cantina. Flies come and go and take a sip on your juice, too. The total amount of 320.00 should have been paid to some other restaurant who could give a better service and food. Aside from that , the waiters and waitresses are noisily chatting away .. giggling and teasing each other which can be irritating to some customers. Geez ... I will be avoiding this place next time Im in Boracay. They got lousy food and lousy service.

PROS
Large portions, clean, tasty and fairly priced. Busy with combination of tourists and local residents (always a good indication!). Beach side tables are large and not cluttered. Seafood is very fresh with huge lobsters and lapu lapu (tasty local fish). Nice friendly staff who speak a variety of languages. Ask for waiter called "Nueve", long time staff and super friendly and informative with an amazing memory.

CONS
a little too popular with tourists at peak dining hours, so getting one of the good beachside tables for best people watching can be difficult.
