A special market place where you could choose your own seafood, bargain at the price you wanted and request the restaurant to cook at your choice! However, do not find that the seafood is worth it as it seems more costly than other places.... But the food was very yummylicious thou!! :)

Its a nice place to eat when you are looking for fresh seafoods. Price is expensive to me (compared to what I buy for my restaurant). But no choice, they all have the same price. Just need to haggle a bit for many orders. Since we are 15 in a group and my budget was just 2000, 500 per kilo for a shrimp is a bit expensive compared to 240 where i bought for my restaurant. So i need to improvice on a cheaper shellfish instead for soup and viands. We had tinola clams for soup, chilli buttered shrimp, squid adobo and calamares. We had it cooked just beside the market. The soup was perfectly cooked but the buttered shrimp is not spicy. The squid adobo lacks the tanginess of the vinegar. The calamares is soggy, i think they made a wrong batter. I hope they will see this and improve next time.

Ate here twice and the price gets cheaper 2nd time. 1st Nite paid 2000 peso for 2 fish, 2nd Nite was 800 peso for 2. It's a deal. Total bill for 2nd Nite is 900 peso per pax with a group of six. It was worth it. Really enjoy ourself on the good spread. Can make a trip here when in Boracay, many types of seafood is on sale. U pick yur choice, bargain hard than chose a restaurant to do the cooking for u. Our 900 peso included drinks n cooking.

If your going to spend any time on this small tropical island you are going to visit this place. It has all the usual tourist stuff you can buy. Be sure to ask for a lower price on just about anything they sell. Lots of places to eat and a good place to people watch.
