Spanish food at its best!! When in Boracay this is the place for excellent Spanish food and service. Their menu and wine list can compare with the best in Manila. Everything we had were yummy - paella, baked oysters, callos, Gambas, salpicao and chicken. This new site is still ok even when it’s not near the beachfront.

Contrary to some reviews here, we found Dos Mestizos to be friendly and satisfactory. It might have been the timing because we went there on the last week of July which is an off peak season. Fewer tourists and restaurant patrons so this gives the crew some time to get their acts right. The cochinillo was good and the paella is prepared superbly though it’s still different from the paella dishes in Malaga, Spain. Cheese baked oysters are fresh and the manchengo that went with the jamon serrano is heavenly. We even ordered some take outs the next day to match our whiskey binge. Oh well, different season, different experiences in Boracay. Just go and get lost with what the island has to offer.

We ordered cuchinillo and paella for our main dish and gambas for appetizers. The gambas had shrimps that were the size of an oversized pea. they were so small that they were just meant for garnishing on fried rice. And they had the nerve to charge P850 for one small serving (we ordered 2).

Then came the baby pig (cuchinillo) which was very hard to chew. The skin was as tough as leather.

On the other hand the paella was ok and was just right.

The service was atrocious! We had to get our own water since no was attending to us! The owner was just there sitting by the bar while the customers were not being attended to. They were understaffed and way overpriced.

Will definitely not come back here.

Dos Mestizos was the worst restaurant we visited in our one and a half week stay in Boracay.

Aside from the oysters being so small for ₱520 for 6 pieces, I say pass.

We had the lamb shank and the serving was so small for ₱1,520++. The croquettes were oily and didn’t have a sliver of Jamon Serrano (3 pieces only)

Don’t bother coming here, big regrets and a hungry tummy.

Everything on their menu is surely a must try. But make sure to ask the waiter what’s their most best seller so atleast you’ll have a better idea what to have especially if you’re not too familiar with Mexican Spanish inspired food. Their homemade chorizo’s are superb!!!!
Over all highly recommended place to try if you will visit Boracay. Food price is somewhat affordable , reasonable but make sure you really planned well on your budget before making a reservation.
