They offer wide range of seafood choices from the market "talipapa" surrounded by different restaurants. You pick and buy your own fresh ingredients from the market, and have them cooked to your choice of dish. BUT.. It would have been great to also have readily available dishes to choose from, especially those who are willing to dine-in but didn't want... More

It's your average souvenir market, rates are much cheaper than d'mall however not as fashionable. Be ready to bargain to anywhere between 1/3 to 1/2 of quoted price

On our first night in Boracay, we decided to go to D'talipapa. We had a few people approach us until we came upon this small restaurant that offered to assist us in choosing the seafood in the market. None of us knew how seafood actually cost but we were told afterwards that the Prawns, lobster and scallops that we bought... More

The specialty of this market is seafood. You buy from many vendors fish of all kind, Prawn, Lobsters, crab, oyster scallop and clam. The price here has gone up so much because of high demands from tourist, but rest assure it is fresh. The cooking style depends on the restaurant you get to cook it with a cooking charge. All...

The concept is really nice where you pickup fresh seafood and get it made to your liking. However, you have to keep an eye on the prices as the minimum cooking costs is based on a Kilo. As we were a couple and cannot put away a Kilo of shrimps we ended up paying a lot for the meal since... More

we bought tiger shrimps, scallops, lapu-lapu, squid and coconuts. It was a very hearty meal! A bit pricey, even the paluto (considering it was off-season) but worth it.

It was a total hassle trying to negotiate a good deal for seafood. The concept was great but too much hassle as one has to negotiate with the seafood seller. We were being rudely scolded when we thought that it was not a good deal to buy some of the seafood. The sellers were like gangster and started yelling and... More

When in Boracay, one shouldn't miss visiting D'Talipapa to buy souvenirs or to find a place to eat. It has the paluto style you will enjoy buying the ingredients of your preferred dish.
