Intimate and romantic

It is a bit hidden from the mad crowd in Greenbelt, but great expat hangout. Small but intimate, a bit formal but romantic. Had good quality meals and drinks, highly recommended.

This restaurant is absolutely first class - excellent food, and excellent service. I am normally critical of "posh" restaurants trying to overprice their product. But this really is exceptional. It is not cheap - but very high quality - by far and away the best meal we have had in the Philippines.

We visited from Los Angeles where international food culture there is profound. We didn't know what to expect at Sala, hence we were curious. We ordered the "tasting menu" and tried a range of dishes. To our disappointment, it didn't take long to realize that what we were paying for was the posh ambience. Pretense is a good word to...

Nice, intimate, romantic restaurant with excellent food and friendly staff. Many foreigners and expats, probably slightly expensive for local people. Definitely worth the trip and only a few blocks from the nice designer shops.

This is the original Sala and more fine dining food than Sala Bistro next door at Greenbelt. Owned by a Brit, I have always found the food standard consistently good here and often take VIP visitors here. The Moroccan chestnut soup springs to mind as a memorable dish I have had several times. Worth a visit. Not a lot of... More

Fine dining in Makati with good service but the place is small. Don't go if you're starving because you have to wait for 15-30mins for food to be served.

We dined as a large group and had a great time. Good food, good company, great wine. I ordered the roast duck and loved it. Service was good, waiters were attentive.
