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.

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.

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.

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.
