This weird little restaurant with its antique-shop/junkshop decor is a must-do. It is hard to find on a narrow little one-way street and the waiters lack confidence and skill but the atmosphere and food make it really worthwhile. I loved the sizzling squid and the ribs. It is really a sort of euro-american homestyle cuisine but done in a fresh... More

This is a place like no other. The ambiance is just so cozy one can quickly feel right at home. Maybe this is due to their random furniture and yellow light that creates this little house of delight. Food is great, whatever you order is great! I love their iced tea and their signature pizza where you drizzle it with... More

This restaurant tucked in a one-way side street near Shaw Boulevard serves some really great dishes that makes you want to come back for more. Ambience is very homey with eclectic furnitures. Parking is available within the restaurant compound. We wanted to eat at an early time to avoid the rush of Father's Day revellers and this restaurant came up... More

I love Frazzled Cook to bits! I will definitely eat here over and over again! Salpicao was lala-love and so was the pumpkin soup. :) Must admit it's a bit pricey but I love the place and the food! :)

I had a chance to taste this restaurant after a reccomendation from a good friend. The place was cozy with chairs that are totally different somewhat like a clean but antique furniture shop. We ordered spicy chicken kabab, spicy lamb kabab, squid salad and the rib eye steak. Food was presented well but for its price it was pricey. Rib... More

When i saw this secret resto from the net, i quickly searched for some reviews and planned my visit with my boyfriend. When we found the place, it was interesting becoz the area is not a typical busy street so absolutely it is quiet and sort of a relaxing dinner. We were greeted by this friendly gentleman and led us... More

Heard about this place before but only had the chance to visit lately. I was not surprised by how many good reviews this quaint restaurant have had over the years! Food was great especially the pizza caprese and beef salpicao and pancak ala mode. Homemade Ice tea was more on the sweet side. The staff were very kind and accomodating.... More

Although the place exudes a certain novelty due to its "Frankenstein-ian" interior decoration; the location - tucked in a secluded corner between shaw boulevard and a residential district - lacks sufficient parking area, as is the case with most establishments in the Philippines. Some people might find the interior attractive as it jumbles together various paintings, armoires, postcards stuck to... More

Going inside the restaurant makes one feel immediately at home. The Frazzled Cook is in an old house and its furnitures look like they are from some time past, maybe the 60s. Postcards on the wall and various knick-knacks bask under the various chandeliers also reminiscent of an era gone by. With Chet Baker in the background, we had the... More
