Excellent quality in a reasonable setting

We had a mid-week lunch and there were 4 of us. We all live and work in Manila. One thing I really liked about Sala was that they offered a set lunch menu. There were 3 or 4 choices for the appetisers, mains and desserts and all those we chose were very good quality and beautifully presented. The... read more

I have had many lunches and dinners here normally as part of a wine club but also birthday parties etc. It is small but cozy and the food is exquisite especially the fish and duck dishes accompanies by a great selection of fine wines chosen by Colin McKay himself Prices are reasonable considering the quality presented

Sala is one of Makati's institutions for a reason. The food is superb. It's just a pity that with several new and excellent contenders on the block, it suddenly seems to be a bit over-priced for what you get. We ate the five course tasting menu, with wine, at a cost of around 3,500Php. The food was wonderful, in particular... More

This is the best fine dining restaurant in Makati. The size of the restaurant is perfect. It doesn't have that much seating/tables therefore making it more cozy. Lighting is perfectly dimmed. Food is terrific. Staff well trained.

We had a company dinner at Sala and it was fabulous! The hors d'oeuvres were beautifully prepared. I had to restrain myself from eating too much lest I lose my appetite for the dinner. We had scallops with our salad, then a small portion of ravioli with portabello mushrooms, wagyu steak and dessert. The wine served were also good. The... More

We booked there for a friend's hen's dinner and had the tasting menu with paired wines. Loved everything - the food, the wine, the service!! My favourite dishes were the wagyu steak and the stilton cheese soufflé - I even had to steal one from a non-blue-cheese-eater in our group!! The wines were great and the staff were really helpful...

I had dinner with two friends at Sala. We opted for the tasting menu with the paired wine. The location and ambience at the restaurant is excellent. The space is small and intimate with great lighting and music. The food was tasty and well presented and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff could have been more informative about what...

Service guy asked for my order and I wanted Steak so he asked me how I want it and I said well done, he stared at me for like 5 seconds giving me weird facial expressions and I had to repeat myself that yes I want it well done. Then they served me a medium rare, I only got to... More
