The Filipino dishes we ordered taste great! The mud crab though medium in size compared to Australian huge size, is still meaty. Cannot fault it. Staff were friendly and ready to assist and serve! Thank you, Mesa Staff 👍😉👌

We had dinner here we chose to seat outside. The servers are attentive. Like a fine dine experience. While eating modern Filipino cuisine, there's a band playing the most soulful music. I fell in love! Just eating by the beach alone makes you really feel good plus the music, good serving and great music?! I was in heaven! Price is... More

I love Mesa's interiors it is very cozy and relaxing. We always dine out here whenever we go to Boracay. The price of the food is just right and the taste of the food are superb.:) Since we were so hungry for the long trip we opted for Inihaw platter for 700+.. It contains 4 shrimps, 4-5 mussels, Liempo, squid... More

First and only restaurant in the Philippines that I've been to wherein the prices does not include VAT. Was shocked to see in our receipt that VAT was charged separately.

Nice place! Best baby squids ever. Tried both and they are very good. Beer glass always cold and good service. The waitress service were better than the waiters that got their shift, but that was ok. Recommended place to have nice baby squids!

During my trip in Boracay I decided to have a meal at Mesa since my dine in last time was excellent. The second time I tasted their sumptuous meal was at their branch at Megamall. And so we were excited to experience it again! We ordered the famous deep fried tilapia but for whatever reasons the waiter gave a wrong... More

I've dined in their other branches and would certainly come back for their food. I had scallops and sinigang salmon when I was in this branch. Their wait staff are very hospitable. They are fairly priced for the quality of food they serve.

When we first got to the hotel in Boracay, we asked the front desk person and the porter which restaurant they would recommend, and both of them answered Mesa. Part of Henann Regency Hotel but open to the beachfront, Mesa serves good authentic Filipino food. Portion is Filipino-sized, meaning not that big to Americans. Service is good. They brought out...

We sat outside and were impressed with the varied menu. We chose some Filipino dishes and were happy with our choices. The waiters were pretty good and helped to make it an enjoyable dinner. Would like to return to try some of the other menu options.

Thank BennyBlue
