Description: In the late 1800's Filipino intellectuals and warrior-poets started using the word "Indio" (a derogatory term to refer to the Islands' natives) as a badge of honor and a source of pride. They eventually formed a society that fought for reforms and more rights for their countrymen and called themselves "Los Indios Bravos" --- The Brave Natives. This gastropub is a tribute to all those pioneering men for we too are breaking new ground in Boracay as we are the first to showcase all-Filipino handcrafted beers on tap paired with classic pub food from all over the world.

Had dinner and drinks at Los Indios in Aug 2019. We left the place very satisfied at that time.

Visited again in Jan 2021 and I’m very happy to say that the quality of the food that I remember has been retained. The experience was as good as the last time we visited.

We had: chorizo and mushroom risotto, sausage and mash, grilled cheese sandwich and cottage pie.

Boondocks Brewing Summer Ale has remained consistently good as well!

I went for dinner with my family, and we really enjoyed the food. I'm a sucker for Mac and Cheese, so that was my pick and this did not disappoint. It was so full of gooey cheese! The Sausage & Mash was also good. It came with a barbecue sauce dip which went well with the sausages.

To finish our dinner, we had the Banana Bread ala Mode. This was made of MarTinapay's banana bread, topped with peanut butter, caramelized banana slices, vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. All of this came together in a bomb dessert. Yum!!!

Beers. There are only local craftbeers (and Lindemans, of course, lol). And all local craftbeers have a strong yeast aftertaste. Not good enough for $5 for 0.25l. No free trials, of course.
Meals. The food is a bit weird but OK, nothing special.
Service. They have two price lists - one on the board and one on the computer. The second is 20% higher than the first. Also an additional 12% VAT, 10% service charge, so your final bill is increased by 42%. Very unobvious, this is the only place on the island with such a good move. Get ready for it.
Live music is good. Except of that - the whole island of places better than this.

Dear Oleg,

It is unfortunate that you have formed a bad impression of our restaurant purely on a technical matter, but I hope you can hear us out. We want to reassure you and the readers of your review that there is nothing illegal and deceptive with how we layout our menu or price our food as the numbers and added information are clearly printed for all to see. We just followed the basic rules of aesthetics in making menus: the restaurant name is usually on top, food in the middle and the additional information like taxes and other charges at the bottom.

The number you see beside the food items on the menu is what our restaurant gets from the customers. This is what we earn from the food and service that we provide. And most of this goes to provide you with a good meal by paying for hardworking staff and sourcing the best ingredients for your dish. However, the additional government tax (Value Added Tax) stated and printed in our menu and clearly broken down in each bill does not go to us but goes well, to the government's treasure chest which is then distributed to officials and politicians for classrooms, hospitals, sidewalks, Senate hearings and other things. But as we have no way of accounting for where this money goes and how it is spent, we decided to keep this amount separate (but stated in the menu and broken down in your bill). Thankfully, almost all of our customers don't mind a little mental arithmetic and really come here for the food and the service that we try to provide the best way we can, day in and day out, 7days a week.

Come by for a beer, it's on us.
Maybe this way, you can look beyond the menu and actually experience what we strive to provide.

Thank you
