This is a world class restaurant in the heart of the CBD in Manila. The service is excellent the food is of the highest quality. It is a great place to entertain. You are not rushed and can have a great conversation while eating a great meal

had the tasting menu at the Sala, both food and wine selection excellent, some of the reviews suggested was expensive, by Philippine standards will not be cheapest, but by European standards was great value for money. The restaurant was relaxed and welcoming, the service good, i would highly recommend a trip there for a fine dining experience.

There has yet to be a Michelin-star rated restaurant in the Philippines. Sala probably comes the closest towards achieving one. I started dining at Sala when Chef Colin Mackay first opened this spot in the late 90s in Malate (old part of Manila). It has since moved to Makati in the mid-2000s and has been a constant favorite. The limited... More

I was encouraged to eat at Sala restaurant because of the good reviews i've read from the tripadvisor. We did the tasting menu with wine pairing and did try some foie gras on the side and it was excellent. They serve their complimentary bread but needs to be handpicked by the customers (which i am quite bit sensitive because everybody... More

I loved this restaurant so much that I returned on my last night in Manila. The wait staff are attentive; the bartender is magic; and the chefs truly know what they're doing. I particularly enjoyed the mushroom raviolis and seafood risotto.

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in the Philippines. Owner Colin Mackay has repeatedly proven to be perfect, and above all, for a consistency in quality and service, not only in Sala, his flagship, but also in his other restaurants, Sala Bistro and People's Palace. With Colin you can't go wrong. In this mega city of Metro Manila with over... More

Definitely do your research first before coming here as to not shock your wallets. It's a great thing it was my boss's treat the last week I was here. Main dishes go for around 1.1k - 1.8k. Some of the dishes such as the Sea Bass, Roast Salmon Fillet and Beef Tenderloin are good for sharing. If you're on a... More

We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing. It was good that we were greated with our pre-ordered drinks upon arrival as this can easily be forgotten. The dishes on the menu itself were fine but lacked any wow factor and were quite standard fayre for a restaurant with this reputation. The exception was the panna cotta which formed... More
