Oysters for good price

1) the sitting area outside was nicely set up 2) the oysters were fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. 3) good variety of Asian food, but can have better options. 4)... we loved it and looking forward to go back there.

I practically grew up with via mare but lately the service has become so poor. The waiters need re-training on good service. They are seemingly busy, they have selective deafness! The food they served are what we label as comfort food, but if the service is bad, I would not recommend it anymore! Cleanliness is another thing. Hope the management... More

If you like really fresh oysters with a cold beer at a good price its hard to beat the Oyster Bar in Rockwell. Yum yum I'll be back.

Their famous and specialty is oyster. The oyster is just fresh and delicious! Most important the price is reasonable! I tried their salad (Ensaladang Pako), it was great! You should try their famous Bangus (milky fish).

I have known this restaurant chain for a very long time; however, since I am not fond of eating native Filipino foods, I have not yet visited any Via Mare outlet; until this Mother's Day... In a nutshell, my first time to dine in Via Mare changed my perception about Filipino foods. This is attributed to the fact that our... More

I picked this place because when I walked by it was very busy for lunch. I had a table upstairs in a corner with a nice view but it was hot and loud up there. I wouldn't take a table upstairs again. I had the crab omelette which was good and fresh lumpia which was OK and fried lumpia which... More

Went there in a Saturday afternoon, we tried a oyster platter with 10 oysters cooked in 5 ways. We also had a seafood glass noodles and 2 glasses of white wine. Food are with a good taste and also the Chilean wine, all together just under 1200 peso, under USD30!! Worth a try, esp in the Greenbelt shopping mall.

The staff were very helpful in making sure we got the right quantities of food ordered - in the end we had lots left over which is... More

Such value for 8 fresh oysters, kare kare with the best bagoong I have yet to date, side of rice and a San Miguel Light including tip. Asked the server about the bagoong and she said I could find it at the Landmark and the brand was Barrio Fiesta. This is a chain restaurant and I dined at the Greenbelt... More
