I walked for 300 m from Pan Pacific to locate this restaurant for breakfast . It was a right choice . Fisherman Breakfast Platter plus freshly squeezed orange juice. They came with a tasty fish lentils soup first. Fried Sardine with garlic rice with some salted duck egg salad. Surprisingly wonderful combination. Cafe run since 70s. I am planning to... More

Always full with familiar patrons every morning. I love their pandesal served with butter & jam. Their brewed coffee is good but i order my green jasmine tea paired with my hot pandesal. I also like their vigan longganisa served with poached egg. Generally, everything here is perfect & yummy!

The menu had some nice varieties. The Pork knuckles were outstanding. The service and prices were fair. We would go back to the good food and nice atmosphere.

Beside having a CLASSY interior which i love, they also serve wester, italian, and filipino dishes but what i love the most in CAFE Adriatico is their BLACK ANGUS RIB eye, i ordered it in medium rare and it was perfect i am surely satisfied with what i payed for :)

The restaurant is located at the roundabout in Adriatico street. From the restaurant you have a nice view over the roundabout. There is always a lot of activity on the streets and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Still the food is very average specially if you look at the prices.

Cafe Adriatico is fronting the Remedios Circle of the Bohemian district of Malate, where one can quietly enjoy the scene of children playing and adults strolling. The food is typical Filipino with a few creative twists amid antique furniture and old photos of Filipino families. I think it is best to call and reserve whether solo or a small group... More

This place is always busy and serves a wide range of customers, local and foreigners alike. Has a good menu with a variety of local and international dishes, all of which are well presented and tasty. Has a very nice and friendly atmosphere.

I lived across the street from Cafe Adriatico in Malate for 3 years. I ate there frequently and always found the food and service to be perfect. You can see the cooks right in front of you making your meal. There is a smoking section upstairs and if you have room left have a piece of cake. Whenever you are... More

So I walk by Cafe Adriatico this morning. It's open and I ask the guard about their coffee, he replies "You want coffee? Come in." So I ask the waitress who gives me a menu with food but no coffee prices how much the coffee is. She says "Oh its free if you order." Now I've already had a Siopao... More
