They recommend me a cocktail from the menue (a normal cocktail instead of a happy hour price). The reason was to get a bigger glas to the menue price. Everything else was allright but honestly not a really good cocktail without fresh juice. When they...More

Staff were incredibly rude when paying by credit card. We were told it’s a P1000 minimum though we weren’t told that when seated and the staff snatched the credit card and told us to go to the reception to process. Would not recommend.

I stayed at SandCastles The Apartments and Tribal Cafe was just fronting it by the beach. This is where I watched the sunset over beer and had dinners with. Great place to watch people pass by. Food is great, service is equally fab. Thumbs Up!

As others have said, this is the best bar with live music that we found. Toes in the sand, beer in hand, sunset in the background, listening to live acoustic music by two awesome performers; it doesn't get any better.

Tribal Cafe was our favorite place in Boracay. We were there every night in the front row to hear some of the best live music I've ever experienced! There are 2-3 core guys that are there every night playing a mix of acoustic and reggae...More
