That was a #triumph! The #food was #excellent as always. We ordered: • Red Roasted Mahi Mahi • Bagnet Crispy Pork Belly • Lemon Pepper Mahi Mahi • Chili Mango Margarita Not photographed • Cheese Balls • Chili Pepper Calamares The mahi mahi was terrific;...my partner, who doesn't like to eat fish, loved it. And that crispy bagnet was so sumptuous. The service was superb; Mariel and Mely set up our tables on the beach and were very attentive to our needs. And best of all, the owner, Tita Cory Batchelor, was so gracious; she made us feel at home on the island. If ever you're in Boracay, Mama's Fish House is a must-try! PS. I wish Microtel would lower their price during the pandemic and offer cheaper long-term rates. We'd love to stay given its proximity to one of the best restaurants in Boracay.More

So far the best and delicious food and portioning is quite big that we didn't even managed to try the Mango float (haha) for dessert. We ordered Chili squid and tuna seaweed roll for appetizer and then Mahi mahi steak and Mahi mahi in lemon...pepper, it was just mouth watering and the fish are fresh and was cooked gracefully! Not to mention Ms. Mama (She allowed us to call her Ms. Mama) all of that was recommended by her and I would say she is so beyond accommodating and super nice. Oops! we are also lucky enough to witness a performance that night for a birthday party. Everything was just at the right time. Thank you for having us that night.More

Received a very warm Welcome by the owner of MFH, super charming and friendly lady. Very Cozy place with extremely friendly and efficient staff. Always attentive. Had San Miguel Pilsen to start. My favourite local beer. Followed by a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc Sta Luz 1200pesos...per btl. to go with my Seafood Lunch. Pulutan (snack with booze) with my Sanmig was Crispy Calamari with a sensational Tangy and Mildly Spicy sauce. Perfect balance. Followed by the ever famous Mahi Mahi fillet. Served on a silky smooth potato puree. Thoroughly enjoyed in with my Sauvignon Blanc. Overall, one of the best meals on Boracay. Looking forward to more exciting times at Mama's Fish House. Place looks a bit Tired, Good Job Mum Cory and Team. See you soon for more Great Food and Beautiful Smiles. Maraming Salamat.More

Mama’s Fish House serves the freshest seafood in the island. The fishermen know that the owner Cory likes to have first crack on the catch of the day. Located in quiet Diniwid Beach #MicrotelBoracay, where one can have a nice swim, enjoy a dip in...Microtel’s beachside pool , cocktails for the sunset and straight to dinner. .... On our 4th day, again a fisherman / ex-Boracay stone artist Chacha went straight from the sea to the restaurant’s kitchen to have a selection of his freshest catch.... But i can’t fail to mention that one of my favorite among the entrés is their Chicken Parmagiana; and another one : Fish n Chips — undoubtedly worth the trip to get to Mama’s Fish House at Microtel by Wyndham Boracay in Diniwid.More

The food was delightful to both the eyes and tastebuds!I recommend the tuna rolls and the calamari for appetizers. I loved my main dish that was roasted mahi mahi but couldn't resist getting into my friends' dishes like the bagnet, and the fish and chips....Im gonna have to go back for the other dishes that I saw on the table but regrettably did not have space for anymore. Their location is so special. Off the beaten path yet easily accessible by all vehicles or better yet, by a nice leisurely stroll along the beach. The service is cheerful and courteous. Highly recommended!More

this restaurant is a GEM! accessibility is the only drawback because it's located at the very end. situated at Diniwid beach, it's not that well visited. one can walk the whole white beach until station 1 pass thru the cliff, the grotto then another beach...then finally reaching the restaurant. good vibes, nice view, very pleasant staff. my wife and I had a great time! ambiance 4/5 food 10/5!! their pork bagnet is so tasty! the grilled Mahi Mahi is to die for! we will be coming back today to try the other dishes! definitely a must try for everyone! 😁More

Heard a lot of good reviews and it did not disappoint at all! Everything was really good that we had to go back after our 1st meal. All their food is full of flavor and serving is hefty! We stayed in Shangrila where food is...also very good but we cannot resist going back to Mama’s Fish House. We also tried the top rated restos in Station 1 and 2 but they all did not pass our standards. All ordinary, they were nothing special. Ingredients used in other restos were regular low quality not like Mama’s Fish House where you can really taste the quality and fresh ingredients that they use. The owner, Ms. Cory, is very friendly, nice and meticulous about her food which explains all the sumptuous dishes she serves. We tried tuna roll (crunchy and yum), calamares (the best I’ve tried), seafood marinara (super good and love the perfect al dente pasta!), mahi-mahi in lemon and garlic (so good and full of flavor), mashed potato (my 7 y/o son finished it all!), Mama’s Fish House hamburger (even if they didn’t have their brioche bun, I insisted to have it even with regular toast bread. Burger is very big and my son finished half of it), seafood paella (oh la-la! As if you’re in Spain), garlic prawns (so delish and not like the regular garlic prawns that we can try in othee restos), the coconut crab (just the sauce is already a viand in itself, so so good!), and chicken schnitzel, that my picky eater son loved so much too! To top it all, the price is SO AFFORDABLE! I tell all my friends that it’s a MUST when in Boracay. If only we can take out all her food to Manila, we will! Now I’m craving for all her food, wish they have a branch here in Manila. Thank you so much for the warm hospitality, Ms.Cory of Mama’s Fish House! We will always eat there (if possible all our meals) when in Boracay. Your food is absolutely heavenly and savory!More
