First meal in the Philippines. Actually (and unfortunately) the food was quite forgettable (however, I do remember the waiter constantly clearing his nose, yuk) - prawns were the best thing that we ate, smooth with flavour; the pasta bake, nothing to it really, and what there was was too salty; beef soup was also too salty and the boneless ribs...

First of all the waitress I greet on arrival did not even notice me. Then second, 2 meals which I choose from the menu,, one of them was Beef Lengua, were not available. Apart of that, the menu looks nice, a good mix of various meals. So I decide for a very common Pancit, but it was almost tasteless and... More

We ate there a couple times during our stay on Philippines in December 2012. It may be not cheap compared to a few other local restaraunts, but it's great! We tried the Belgium cookies just like advised on foursquare, and they were awesome. Also, it was the first glass of Calamansi juice in my life — and it was awesome... More

Very good restaurant, kind & professional staff, more expensive than local food restaurant of course (except the delicious chicken, good for 2), but very good, we ate there 4 times, don't hesitate to go there, everything is good (except the burgers).

I have been a resident of Capitol Site for 5 years now but it was only last Sinulog that I happen to take a taste of Don Merto dishes. Since the Sinulog event was still currently happening around the city, people are everywhere that my friends and I thought the place might not be able to accomodate us properly. Luckily,... More
