Good Food at NaMeet, BoracayWhere to Eat on Boracay?
Nameet Bar and Restaurant
NaMeet Restaurant, Hagdan, Boracay
One of my favourite restaurants or food joints on Boracay is reopening in Sitio Hagdan in Brgy Yapak, near the “Palawan Pawnshop”. Nameet is still along the main road that runs the length of the island and easy to find.
I first visited Nameet back in 2014 when it was situated at Diniwid Junction. I loved their food and the whole atmosphere there and was a regular customer.
A Short History of Nameet
Nameet is derived from the Hiligaynon word “Namit” which means “Delicious”. The restaurant first opened at a place in Diniwid Junction on the same day that Typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines and tore through the island of Boracay, 8th November 2013.
Nameet made its name serving speciality dishes such as Batchoy La Paz, Sisig, Ommu-rice, and its very popular homemade Italian style pizzas. Locals and tourists alike used to go there to savour Nameet’s delicious food.
Then in 2017, Rommel, the Owner and Head Chef, was forced to close the premises and move further up the road to Hagdan due to development work around Diniwid Junction. The restaurant changed its name to Ali’s Food Haus and reopened under the management of his sister, Lizel. It was named after Lizel’s daughter Aliah.
Ali’s Food Hauz soon established itself as the “Go To” place in the north of the island and earned itself a good reputation for exciting, tasty food with its customers.
Then in 2018 the island of Boracay was shut down by the National Government for a total revamp and Environmental Clean-up and Ali’s was once again forced to close for a while, reopening again at the beginning of 2020.
Then the Covid Pandemic struck and Ali’s Food Haus closed. During the Lockdowns on Boracay, Rommel decided to open his restaurant and serve basic meals like Lugaw to local people free of charge. He also ran a food home delivery service around Brgy Yapak to cater to people that wanted a taste of Nameet.
Now with the island again reopening to tourists Nameet has risen once again to serve its favourite dishes. Rommel has renovated the restaurant, has created an outside dining area, and is ready to serve his customers sumptuous meals in a safe environment, with the addition of some exciting new dishes that he has been working on, that only Nameet knows how.

The Original Na Meet Restaurant, in Diniwid Junction, Boracay
The name Na Meet is taken from Na-mit which is an Iligaynon word meaning Delicious.
Na Meet opened at the end of 2013 and very quickly became established as one of the To-Go-To restaurants in Diniwid.
The sibling owners Rommel and Lizel Lamayo started with Filipino foods such as Sisig, Calderetta, Adobo, Chop Suey and Batchoy and news of their cooking soon spread by word of mouth. The restaurant has lots of regular customers and is very popular amongst foreign visitors to Boracay that reside in and around Diniwid.
I eat here regularly when in Boracay as I find their filipino food very tasty and am always welcomed with a smile and a chat. One of my favourite dishes is their Beef Calderetta. Rommel and Lizel really take care of their customers.
They have also added freshly baked to order Homemade Pizza to their menu which are very good value.
Na Meet also has free wifi so if you need to catch up with your emails or facebook, or do some work on your blog, Na Meet is a fantastic alternative to the big name coffee houses by Dmall.
So Meet Me at Na Meet …………….
They are Open everyday from 5:00 am – 12:00 am

I found this hidden gem of a place a while walking north towards Puka Shell Beach along the main road from D’mall. The food is delicious and they serve both traditional Filipino foods as well as others like pizza, omurice etc. However what really set it apart was undoubtedly the affable owner Rommel and his lovable staff who dispense travel tips from the Philippines and ensure that you’ll have a great time there. Highly recommended!
I couldnt agree with you more Julian. Rommel and his sister always made me feel at home there.
The food looks good and it seems so affordable. I hope to make it there next time and try some local dishes! Our last experience wasn’t great :)!
Filipino food is very good when you know where and what to eat. ok the presentation isn’t the same as in Europe but i would rather have tasty food than good presentation and bland food.
