Great for seafood lovers

The best part of this market is that you can buy whatever fresh seafood you want and get it cooked the way you like in one of the restaurants around the market!

Many of the vendors are not honest with the price and negotiate them down. They will try to sell you product at the highest price they can get from you. I bought sea urchin at a high price and it was small and not appetixing at all. The restaurnat we ate at even informed us that the price was too... More

Don't come here expecting a deal on seafood. We have travelled a lot and the prices were were able to negotiate were more expensive than Thailand and about the same price as North America. My Fiancé had concerns about preparation of foods since there is no running water but luckily neither of us had any issues. Our lobster was over... More

Boracay still offers endless surprises and the allure you'll keep coming back to in time. Despite the big big multimillion changes. Can't find the old haunts that newer establishments wiped out : my old sentimental places- bended coconut trees, Bon Bons regae music, Mongolian Barbecues, etc. Surely Boracay mirrors ones state of mind as we transcend adulthood. When we got... More

We had a blast. Went to the wet market and bought live lobster, all kinds of shell fish and freshest fish on the island. Then went to Blue Jade and had them cook everything up for us. Absolutely amazing!

I would never eat here anything! I couldn't even breath correctly cause of the stinky smelly atmosphere. Also the surrounding restaurants that cook your fish look like gang joints! The only good thing is that it has also a market there with local clothes souvenirs etc for tourists and has much cheaper prices than Dmall and the white beach on... More

This market has the best fresh seafood on offer. You go around to the different vendors to check out what they have to offer and obviously you try and haggle a good price. After you get your bounty just pick any of the quaint restaurants surrounding the market who specialize in cooking it anyway you want for a small fee.

I never missed going to this place every time i visited Boracay. It seems that it was always a pleasure eating to this place and you will leave with a happy stomach. Their rules is to buy different kinds of seafoods (they also have chicken and pork), select what resto you want and have them cooked your food for you... More

We went there this morning for our last day in Bora and bought 1Kilo Male Crab 2pcs for Php 550.00 (the famale crab is Php 700.00 per kilo) and 1/2kilo prawn for Php 200.00 Paluto is affordable at 200.00 for Chili Sauce Crab and 150.00 for buttered shrimp. The price is cheaper here compare near the beachfront paluto.
