The Restaurant has a Great History behind it, with Traditional Filipino Meals. It gets extremely busy with locals. We had the classic BBQ Chicken & Java Rice. Great Food, Great Value, and Great Service

Aristocrat restaurant is a familiar landmark along the strait of Roxas Blvd. This morning, I decided to visit the newly renovated wing of the resto fronting the seawall. It looked brighter and more spacious than before. I was happy to note that they have included easy access, like ramps and walkway, for the elderly and the disabled in their renovation.... More

After 24 hours in the airport & flying from the USA this was a welcome treat. We had the chicken & rice, Philippine beer and some fabulous plum ice cream! What a great way to begin my 17 day adventure is this most hospitable country! We would definitely stop & enjoy this fine restaurant again.
