No trip to Boracay is complete without a meal at Deparis Resort. So after settling in our room and a quick afternoon stroll on the beach, we were ready to have our first dinner in Boracay.
Deparis Resort is located at Station 2 and just a couple of minutes from our accommodation. It is on the beachfront. It is one of the oldest establishments in the island and is owned by a Frenchman, Roger de Paris.
It serves French food as well as Thai and Filipino cuisine. Unfortunately, Mr. de Paris was out of the country today. Dad would have loved to chat with him.
I love the ambiance at Deparis. It's not usually full so it's more on the relaxed calm side. There is a bar, an eating area in the beach front, and an eating area inside (which is also open by the way).
There is a pool table if you fancy a game or two. My biggest enemy at Deparis are the mosquitoes, but I came fully equipped with anti-mosquito lotions and sprays that night. None dared to come near us.
|Tequila Sunrise - P120|
Being on vacation is the perfect excuse to have a cocktail at dinnertime. I got a Tequila Sunrise, which was more Tequila than anything else.
|Plateau de Charcuterie - P290|
Dad started his meal with the Plateau de Charcuterie / Cold Cuts Platter, which we all sort of dug into.
|Terrine Platter - P190|
Not knowing that there was Terrine in the Plateau de Charcuterie, Dad ordered a Terrine Platter. This was probably one of his best ideas as I liked the Terrine very much!
We were served these breads with our appetizers.
|Lobster Bisque - P290|
SM got an Lobster Bisque, an easy choice for her. I found the Bisque to be runny but good in flavor. There were big chunks of lobsters and not much vegetables. Perfect combination for me. ☺
|Seafood Bouillabaisse - P490|
This is the only dish I will order here: Seafood Bouillabaisse. It had 1 big prawn, several small shrimps, 1 big potato, 1 slice of fish, mussels, squid pieces, and topped with 2 Rouille-topped bread. It was perfect as usual.
And went perfectly with the cup of plain rice MR and I had.
|Baked Oysters - P290|
MR ordered a plate of Baked Oysters which we shared with the Seafood Bouillabaisse. These were cooked with garlic, butter, and parsley. A very French combination. For plus points, each oyster shells had 2 or more oyster pieces in it.
|Beef Tournedos - P490|
Dad had a hard time choosing his main course and finally settled for the Beef Tournedos with French Fries. The Tournedos is a cut from the tenderloin. This was wrapped with a bacon, cooked medium rare, and topped with a Bearnaise sauce. Dad cut me a piece and it was tender. He didn't like the Bearnaise Sauce.
|Mango Sorbet - P120|
We ended the night with a bowl of Mango Sorbet. This is our dessert of choice here. It is light and the perfect end of the meal. Too bad SM never got to try it as she fell asleep exhausted from today's events right after finishing her bowl of soup.
-Our total bill was P2,700 + 12% VAT = P3,024.00-
*Only accepts cash.
*Prices in menu does not include 12% VAT, so the dish come out a little pricey
