Good food, noisy atmosphere

Positives: The food is very good in taste and presentation. Portion sizes are remarkably large for a museum restaurant, too. Negatives: It can get very noisy in the restaurant, and flagging down the waitstaff can be a challenge. I actually ate here twice during my recent trip: once for... read more

It's late afternoon on Friday, 26th of June 2015. Coming from a business meeting in the Makati Central Business District, I wanted to inquire about Ayala Museum so I could bring my kids there on a weekend, but I got hungry from a long walk through Greenbelt area so I decided to eat some snacks first at Museum Cafe which...

Nicely located cafe adjacent to the Ayala Museum. Had only time for coffee as I have taken lunch somewhere else. Definitely will eat a meal next time..

Awesome espresso martinis! The snacks are good but I wouldn't stay here all night for dinner. Great for a few drinks and snacks before or after :)

This restaurant ticks all the boxes except one.....hygiene. I personally saw a waiter drinking a little of a customers drink from their straw before serving and a bartender sucking a spoon and then using it to mix drinks. There are no words.....

Staff are friendly but the service and quality of food lets it down. There are plenty of other places to eat here.

A cafe / restaurant that doubles as an upmarket cocktail bar in the evenings. Have some good food here and reasonably priced.

Stopped off here for a few drinks after visiting the museum. Lovely jazz band playing outdoors and a terrific atmosphere. A little on the pricey side but well worth the money

Have been to M Cafe a few times over the past few years....its not improving. The menu is beyond the capability of any seasoned chef ie you sense you;re destined for mediocrity. Guess what? They delivered - consistently mediocre food. Service is confused. we had a group reservation for 6pm. It took them over an hour to prepare the table... More

I came a decade ago and was pleased to see the place has survived intact, still clean, bright and modern. Food and drinks pleasing to the eye and palate. The Gin (pom pi?) drink was new, I loved it. Like other citrus, pomelo goes well with gin. Ukoy - a cake of little fried fish was a delicious accompaniment along... More
