“Cheaper but tasty authentic Pinoy food in Boracay Island”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Its an outdoor seafood market between stations 1 and 2. What to do here: Buy your seafood from the fresh seafood stalls. And then have them take it to one of the full-service cooking restaurants next door to have them cook it for you the way you want it for a small price

Tip when buying your seafood: Walk around the entire thing once before you make a decision. This way you can tell which stalls have what. They have a good variety of fresh seafood.
Note the pricing on the their boards.

Tip when getting your seafood cooked: We always opt for grilled with lemon garlic on prawns/shrimp/lobsters. It mot definitely the best combo! They sell local beers at the restos too. BE SURE to take wet naps with you - napkins at the restos tend to be 1-ply and can get frustrating when peeling all the seafood.

Cost of seafood: Definitely cheaper than restaurants on the beach or at the hotel.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Overpriced fresh seafood! They sell seafood at higher price if you are a foreigner which is not good for tourism. Be ready to bargain. Place is dirty. The seafood are overpriced! You can buy them in other place cheaper like Palawan

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The market is really great, with huge choice of live seafood. Bargaing, bargaing and bargaing. First price sellers name is overcharged almost twice. And when you give bought seafood to the cafe watch carefully the menu - prices for cooking can be 0,5 kilo, and the final bill can be very high. But the seafood is fantastic

“Good eat”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Fresh seafoods in the market (decently priced for locals ... you can haggle) and friendly service staff in the restaurants. If you need a fix of seafoods cooked your way ..... D'Talipapa is the place. Accessible too.

“Go Early To Avoid The Crowd”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is a great place to have fresh sea food at reasonable prices. Just make sure you reach there a bit early to avoid the crowd at the restaurants. We had our 18months baby with us and also missus is a vegetarian, so I purchased a red snapper and few tiger prawns only and ordered a take away. The baby was becoming restless due to heat and crowd, so we wanted to leave the place asap.
The restaurant ( can't remember the name) grilled the fish well and the prawns cooked in lemon butter sauce were awesome !!!
Again, do remember to be there before 7 PM as it gets extremely crowded and hot after that.
there are also many shops selling souvenirs but make sure you haggle a bit to get a better price ;)
