The prices are expensive, and the location at Station 3 is quite far from where the other restaurants are, but there is a reason why people go to Dos Mestizos. You will not regret walking that far, and paying that much for their classic Spanish dishes!

The restaurant is hidden along a side street near Station 1, and almost beside the police station. But when you get inside, you will tend to forget that you are in an island. The ambience was magnificent - dimly lit, live music, and set up like an authentic Spanish restaurant. It is a welcome addition to the growing number of restaurants in Boracay. And yes, they have great paella.

After reading a lot of reviews on trip advisor and on local sites and all of them unanimously raving about Dos Mestizos, we were more than thrilled to dine there. Sad to say but we were quite disappointed.
Yes, it exuded the feel of an authentic Spanish restaurant, but the food was way too pricey for its quality. We ordered tapas : gambas al ajillo, salpicao, croquetas de jamon, which were all average at best, and were even served lukewarm. The portions were also quite small [yes, i'm aware it's tapas and it's meant to be in small servings, but these were smaller than the usual serving]. We paired these tapas with paella de mariscos which lacked the flavor one would expect from rice that was supposedly simmered in all that seafood. We are a Spanish-cuisine-loving family, and we've been to a fair share of Spanish restaurants in Manila and In Barcelona/Madrid, but Dos Mestizos' paella gravely pales in comparison. Those 3 small tapas dishes + paella and 2 orders of canned soda set us back US $70 [PhP 3000]. We wouldn't mind paying that much for quality food, but this was clearly overpriced and not that great.

i kid you not, you should check it out. A little pricy but completely worth it. Very good Sangria and a most charming floor manger, Paul. I shall return.

Dined here during my last vacation to Boracay. Very nice and cozy atmosphere, great food, a nice place to relax and meet new friends. And the bar and deli is awesome too. On some nights, there is Live music.
If you are in Boracay, do not miss dining at Dos Mestizos!! I’m so looking forward myself on my next visit to Boracay soon.
