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.

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.

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

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
