My husband and I decided to try Filipino cuisine, after all we were in the Philippines. I thought the food was good probably would have been nice if the portion was a little bigger though. I love the coconut cream ice cream? never had it before and it was quite good. I didn't like the Vietnamese spring roll though.

Went with 3 friends and ordered: Gising-Gising, Lola Ising's Adobo, TIlapia with Sweet Plum Sauce, and a handful of rice cups. Each person spent about P320-P340, already including tax, service charge, and tips. When we went there, we were lucky there was one more table left as the place was full. PROS: 1. Very nice "affluent Filipinos" ambiance. 2. The... More

This restaurant specializes in Filipino cuisine, mostly Kapampangan and the servings are not too big. I won't eat here with friends though. It's a dimly lit restaurant that has an inviting feel to it. We ordered beef mechado which looked like morcon, sisig, gising-gising, and crispy swahe. I ordered strawberry - banana smoothie but since the banana flavor is too... More

I went there very late (9.30pm). Cozy ambience. Ordered Sinigang Bangus, Tortang Talong and Green Mango Shake. Sinigang is delicious but Tortang Talong is too soft coz the egg is not fully cooked.

I don't get the fuss over Fely J's. I have eaten here twice but am always disappointed. In my opinion, there are a lot of better Filipino restaurants than this. Ambience is okay but on other days, it's too crowded.

This restaurant is part of a group which includes Abe and other fine dining places in Makati and Manila. I went here twice for their Paco Salad. Their dishes were very tasty, especially the gambas, the Kare-kare and bangus dish. Regardless of the day of the week, it gets very busy during the peak hours of lunch (12 to 1:30... More

Located in G5 2F, this filipino restaurant serves diff dishes, mostly pampanga'S cuisines. Their lola ising pork adobo is very nice. It is very tender and cooked to perfection. Kare kare, crispy pata was also very good. Will be back for more:)

The restaurant has been around for several years now and belongs to a chain that is famous for its good food restaurants. The place still serves amazing home style Filipino dishes in the Pampanga style. It remains consistently packed and is popular for families and friends sharing a meal. We have been coming here for years and just wish they'd... More

I went here 2 times. First and second was with my bf while the last one was with the management team of my office. For the first and second time, me and my bf was surprised to find Indonesian dish being offered in a Filipino restaurant. As an Indonesian, we're challenged to try what they offer. We ordered quite many... More
