At The Aristocrat, never miss ordering the Chicken Barbeque and the Camaron Rebosado. They have the best tasting set in town! As a heritage restaurant along Roxas Boulevard and within the Malate district, the Aristocrat Restaurant serves classic Filipino and Chinese cuisine. Their menu hasn't almost changed in about 30 years. So returning Filipinos from long stays abroad will find... More

The best choice in this restaurant is of course the chicken bbq with java rice, and comes next is the arrozcardo. Been dining here since 1970s and not missing a bit of its good cuisine. These recent years we take out rather than dine in, and enjoy the food at home with relaxing mode.

It must be the number of customers that they have that causes slow service. Open twenty four hours a day, their barbecues have become iconic and worth going to. Try their bibingka too. They may be a bit small and thin but tasty.

Whenever I come here, I always feel like eating at a traditional dining table of a Filipino family. The staff is really friendly and the food is great. Try the South China Chiken. Whole!

Visiting this place brings back so many old memories. This place has been around for a long time and has undergone some renovations already for the better. Dining areas are much larger and air-conditioned too. Ample parking around the establishment also available. Must try their signature chicken barbecue to complete the experience.

Have been to this restaurant a couple of times in the evening and found it very noisey as it appeared to be very popular with large groups out celebrating. Food was average, service was good.
