Great food to complement great company

+ The food was great - I liked the sinigang sa miso bangus belly and the crispy pata. The sinigang had enough acid that you could still savor the flavor of the fish; bangus belly fat is just delicious and nothing should detract from its natural flavor. The crispy pata was deep-fried to perfection... read more

What a shame! The menu and food here is generally OK except for the fact that every dish is over cooked and quite dry. This is not acceptable. They should get a properly trained chef and I am sure that this place would jump into the "very good" category.

Loved this place.oysters are fresh and so scrumptious puto bumbong is a must and so with the lug log. These are my must haves whenever I am here. Service can be better.

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.

To have dinner in this restaurant is one of the worst decisions we've ever made. That's how upset we felt after leaving the restaurant last night. We were very clear with our orders and the waiter even recapped them. However, when they started serving our food, 2 orders were not served at the same time as ours. They were the... More

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
