For me, its too dark inside, very narrow. Food do taste good, offers Italian at Filipino food as well. There is ample parking space of its own considering its near Morato Avenue where parking is always a challenge. Quite pricey considering the service size. Waiters are great, always attentive during my stay. It has a potential to be great, it... More

When it comes to hang-outs, I appreciate privacy, consistent food quality, and unobtrusive waiters who remember your favorite seat. This is what they offer. Have been going to this resto for years-- with or without company, with laptop or without, and especially when the cook is on vacation. If ever they decide to provide good wi-fi, it could become a...

A lot of people say that is THE place in Manila - a place where movie stars eat, etc. I don't understand why - average food, no ambience, staff ok, but it does not change anything. Steak - disappointment. Prices - relative high. You shouldn't go.

But I was really disappointed and will NEVER recommend this place to anyone especially if you're celebrating a special occassion. The olace is actually okay, I liked it at first because it has the...

We go here either as a family, a group or a couple because of the ambiance and good food. It may not be cheap eats but the money spent is well worth it. Our favorite has always been the Spinach Pizza, Baked Oysters, Beef Salpicao and Prawns Thermidor. Every so often you will find the owner either going around or... More

The hubby took me there on a Saturday night for a night cap. We were supposed to get dessert but ended up ordering drinks and cheese fondue instead at 11 in the evening. It was my first time there and loved how the place was set up. The place has great ambience and the staff were very professional and accommodating.... More

Seafood like oysters shrimp salmon fries and tuna belly are well executed. Soup is flavorful. A little pricey but worth it. Among the best restaurants in terms of food quality in Scout area. Salad is good.

Dined at this lovely restaurant for our 8th anniversary and wasn't disappointed. The place had a very romantic vibe and it feels like it was built solely for dates. The waiting staff were very attentive and approachable as well. Will definitely go back.

I only saw this restaurant at night but it is in a fomer house that appears to have been extended. There is parking for at least half a dozen cars at the front. We found a private room that seated 10 but our four were the only occupants. Other diners were widely spread in various nooks. Lighting is dim so... More

My husband and I have been a frequent diners of this cozy restaurant in Tomas Morato especially on Fridays, after work. We have been dining here for the past 7 yrs. we simply go whenever we miss the ambiance and the food especially their "rockeffeIer" oyster. I guess, today I owe the place a review.
