Maximum wrap seafood and try as much as to cut price if possible as the seller will try to pull the price as expensive as they can. Fresh 😋still word of fresh 😋

You thought this place a bargain, think again! Prices on d talipapa could rival easily any first class restaurant. I came with an open mind, afterall I am a Filipino and can speak the local language. I felt disgusted. The prices are so inflated that i could have just stayed at the beach with cleaner and much better atmosphere. I... More

A must do when in Boracay! Situated between the main road and the beach in station 2 (towards station 3 side). You'll find it both from the beach and the main road, and there's plenty of good signage. Local fresh fish market, and you take the raw fish to any of many local eating restaurants who make the food just... More

As long as you're willing to argue and nogotiate prices (be informed of market prices) the market is a great spot to enjoy delicious seafoods. Need also to be careful in choosing the right restaurant where to get the food cooked ('paluto')

After taking the time to find this gem we would go back time and time again. You sort out what you want to eat from the local markets.. Late afternoon early evening is a quieter time to go. Then you simply pick one of the restaurants located around the markets and they cook your seafood for you how you'd like.... More

As tourist attractions for shopping this place offers quite numbers of shops but most shops selling the same things ..what u need to do is to bargain and bargain.. the wet market is one of the worst bargain place after all..over price! We got one of the restaurant to cook our food the taste not bad but still too expensive!

Coming to D*Talipapa was really the cherry on the cake for us while in Boracay! You pick your own fish from the market and choose one of the shops across to cook it for you! It is a really authentic touch to your stay in Boracay, not to miss! The only warning is, YOU WILL HAVE TO NEGOTIATE WITH THE... More

I would say it's a good+bad experience. Calm down and start ready your calculator/handphone when bargaining. All of us know, the D'talipapa is one of the attraction for tourist and therefore I've expected the price will be much higher than what it have served in the local restaurant. The games are, pick your seafood and ask the restaurant nearby to... More
