We've been eating here every year when in Manila and the place where I bring relatives and friends for lunch or dinner. So sad to say that they have closed as we enjoyed dining in this place. For what ever reason why they closed, surely we miss the place a lot ! as we live around the corner.

I brought my balikbayan friend from the US who wanted Filipino food. I chose this place over Dencio's since their Filipino food was more special. I ordered the Sinigang sa bayabas. Out of stock. I ordered Sinigang na corned beef. Out of stock. My friend ordered Chicken Skin. Out of stock. We ended up ordering standard unremarkable Sinigang plus some... More

In Cafe Juanita BGC we were wowed by the restaurant interior decoration, transforming us into the good old days of Philippine dining experience. The food was excellent, the ambience exceptional, staff professional. The only snag we encountered was the cashier was in a hurry to closed the bill so they can go home. That made us uncomfortable & hurry in... More

Cafe Juanita came to mind when I needed a reliable Filipino restaurant in BGC. I had a balikbayan classmate and she was craving for that home cooked meal. We had sisig on tofu - it was okay not spectacular, I ordered it as an appetiser but remains of it stayed on the table till the end of the meal. KareKare... More

The place was easy to find and I love their theme and decors...delightful indeed!! They have a variety of food choices that are not only delicious but very appealing to the senses. The servings are just appropriate to its price and ambiance. Would come back for sure.

Upside: creamy vanilla ice cream, interesting presentation of dishes, delicious two-way pork adobo ribs Downside: a few pieces of chicaron bulaklak on a bed to noodles (the noodles were used to add volume, the bicol express lacked heat, sinanglay lacked flavor, crispy pata should be renamed chewy pata

I have always been a fan of Café Juanita. They have good food that is value for money servings and for sharing. They serve Filipino fusion cuisines. The interiors of the restaurant is also one of a kind. Looks like gypsy-ish as far as I am concerned.

Asian food with a twist. Place: asian ambiance. Quite small though but has that thai look. Food: filipino. Thai and other asian dish. The food has its own twist like the sisig on tofu. Everything is delicious. The halohalo though is normal. Price: deceng and not overly prices. Service: friendly and accomodating.

You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Crispy Pata, Sasig, fish dishes, garlic rice, whatever. The ambiance is nice and the service was fantastic
