Delicious but pricey

Sala offers some really good dishes, however, these are not cheap and thanks to very expensive wines, dinner here ends up being an expensive event. If they simply offered some lower priced wines I would be inclined to eat here more often.

I was looking forward to this dinner, the ravioli appetiser was not that fresh and it was hard. The soufflé appetiser was really good, I would have this again. The lamb was good but a little under cooked for medium. The tenderloin was cooked perfect. I wish we had more vegetables, plate seemed a little empty. The Pinot Noir by... More

Sala has a nice, varied menu, including ordinary fare, such as hamburgers, as well as continental dishes. I had a lamb dish that was excellent.

If you prefer a really quiet restaurant I recommend Sala. Fine Dining at its best and make reservations as the place is not ideal for big groups. It's a small restaurant best for wine enthusiasts and the menu, though on the pricey side, is delicious and well prepared by an attentive staff.

A very pleasant place for lunch. Small but elegant with delicious innovative food. They do a business mens lunch, two or three courses.

We did the tasting menu which had an excellent selection of ingredients. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was attentive. The wine selection is enormous although not much is available by the glass and it's very expensive. An oasis in the desert that is Filippino cuisine!

Small intimate restaurant that serves top class cuisine, great win list, top five star service and reasonable prices for such a nice place. Waiting service is just in time and unobtrusive. Soups were good, I had two entrees, shrimps and ravioli, sarap sarap, delicious.

I know expensive is relative but this is up there and at odds with what is possible in Manila. Having said that the food quality was excellent and as always the staff are European style trained nothing is a problem.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with a dinner in Sala. I had the Tasting Menu which showcased their best dishes (get this if you're indecisive about what to order). Loved the scallops too and the champagne! Very intimate setting but not overly cheesy. If you want to indulge and impress your dates, this is the best place... More
