The coffee served in this place is very generic brewed coffee but it goes well with the view whether in the morning (they open 6am) or during sunset. They're mostly packed late afternoon till dinner time. They have a good Japanese menu, but I've had...better omurice and Takoyaki somewhere else.More

Did not get greeted by any of the staff, had to ask for meny, worst part, the place was not busy. During our whole visit there, they were busy standing behind the smoothie mixing desk, eating snacks and shitchatting. Obv they have stopped caring about...their jobs. Wanted to test their sushi, they are japanse resturant after all. Placed the order, only to learn after 5mins that they didnt have any rice to make the sushi, should have walked out of there on principle. But ofc they had already started making my girlfriends food, like the low class place they are. None would have gotten our food at the same time. Over to the food: We orderd tempura mix - let put it this way, my girlfriend did not finish her food, the batter was way too salty. Their lazy ways has found its way from the front staff to their kitchen, 3 of the scrimp still had their poop shoot. Had also order two extra scrimp. 110 pesos for frenchfries, Mcdonalds has better. So frenchfries, two drinks and tempura mix with two extra scrimp, was 896 pesos. Asked for the bill, toke them 5mins to delivery it and another 5mins to give back the change. I guess this place was ok pre pandamic, but I refuse to believe that there is the same staff working there now. One month in the Philippines and this place is by far the worst I have eaten at. Do yourself and love ones a favor, save your money and time, dont visit to this place.More

If you don't mind the wait, the food is great. We ordered the mixed tempura, takoyaki, and Boracay maki. The takoyaki was superb, and the maki was also good. The mixed tempura was a bit too oily for my wife's palette, and since it arrived...much later than the other 2 dishes, we're both left with the impression from the tempura. The dishes were also not fully clean. My plate had some smudges (could be from the previous meal on it, or the plate was handled by the person preparing our food). Going by food alone, it was good, but everything else is wanting.More

We had a very enjoyable experience recently at Nagisa with friends from the UK and sat there at table for a good couple of hours talking and enjoying the excellent Japanese and Filipino fayre. Excellent Ramen and Fresh Sushi with good quality authentic Sake in...this Bamboo style beachfront restaurant with distinctive Nippon infuence. Great attentive service and romantic ambience in the outside areas makes this a worthy visit for anyone visiting or resident in Boracay who appreciates good Japanese food.More

I did not believe that you can get such good ramen and udon at Boracay. It is fantastic and almost close to the quality of a top Japanese restaurant. Here the price is very reasonable. I had squid and it did not come with any...cheese inside. The garlic squid was excellent too. Wow!More

I always come back to Nagisa because, they have a good variety of food items in their menu, food is fresh and tasty and it's not overpriced. One of the things that I like in this restaurant is their location, it's very peaceful and not...much crowd breaking the serenity of the island along the road and when it comes to the restaurant itself, tables have decent spacing, clean, very light and comfortable and as a tourist, I love the fact that they make it native Fililino style. The open air is an adition to the reasons that make the place cozy, unlike most restaurants with glass windows which bars the steam, smoke and smell of kitchen inside the dining area. Although service needs improvement (which is very common in the island), based on my experience, somehow staffs here are ahead compared to their neighboring restaurants.More

We've been there 3 or 4 times during our stay in Boracay. Always excellent with a varied menu (not only Japanese but also Korean, Philippino, ...). Staff is great, great athmosphere to eat your sashimis or Gyosas feet in the sand (or almost).

Was recommended this place by a local ex-pat and it was indeed very good. Full of Japanese/Asia customers which is also a good sign :) Tempura was good and grilled aubergine dish excellent. Service good.
