“Good food but need training on staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Finally decided to try their steak after many visits in Boracay (I am usually there for one night only so I always go to Cyma which right accross).

The steak was really excellent and the pricing was acceptable (you are in Boracay so expect higher prices than anywhere else in the Philippines).

However, the service needs improvement, the waiters do not really pay attention to you and know their menu a bit more (which is also a recurrent problem in Boracay).

I will definitely come back.

“Valhalla - best steak ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Valhalla stake house is an absolute "must do" in Boracay. It was recommended to me by a friend. The first visit was impressive enough to come back next night and get ultimately knocked down by the chief's special - Crusted pepper tenderloin - which was the best stake I ever had in my 48 years! I admit that Mike's (the chief, a nice expat fellow from South Africa) secret recipe and personal cooking service had much to do with the unbeatable texture delicacy, perfectly balanced juiciness and the extremely fresh and natural spicy flavor. He told us later that we were lucky to come during mid-season so we did not have to wait in line for a table or reserve in advance and got a chance to get his close personal involvement. I hope this outstanding quality is not compromised during heavy traffic times of the peak season. We came back again two nights after for another royal treat of Châteaubriant for three of us. I would rate Valahalla 10 points as compared to 7-9 pts of the best stake houses of NYC and Moscow I have been to.

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Wide selection of good, hearty food at very reasonable prices considering their location at the heart of Boracay's D'Mall. Try their Cajun Chicken fingers, cheese burgers and pork chops.

“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Been there last july 2012.It was lunch time and we were dead hungry.We did roamed around d mall to search for the place to eat,then finally we stopped at Valhalla Rest.At first the staff seemed not interested in serving,we were not even welcomed with a smile by the guy who was there.Maybe he thought we can't afford to eat there coz its a bit pricey.But anyhow we really wanted to eat and we just sat down there.Though its not busy,it took a while before someone approached us.As we started to order they started to become nice,perhaps they felt that we are ready to pay any amount cos we didnt ask the price of what we have ordered though its pretty much.To make the long story short,the food was excellent,though it take some time but thats okey.The staff need some sort of seminar in costumer service,cos from the very beginning they should've welome us with a smile even if they are not certain that we're going to dine in.
