It's one of those days where I feel like venturing around Metro Manila revisiting places where we use to go with my Parents, and I have thought of going to Intramuros to see how it looks like now. I realized that I have not been there for several decades already! As I was enjoying the site of that old familiar... More

Barbara's is inside the lovely San Luis complex, right across from the San Agustin church. The evening meal starts at 6:30pm and the dance and music starts at 7:15pm. The food is mostly traditional Filippino food, and it is a buffet so you can get as much as you like! I enjoyed the food, but I wasn't overly impressed by... More

My most favorite restaurant in Intramuros! It has been 4 visits and counting, I've been there solo to do my ocular inspection last 2013, with our visiting Japanese Aikido Sensei & fellow Aikidokas, with my travel buddy/bestfriend Iza, and with friends and colleagues just last April 2014. The place exudes the old Spanish charm & elegance from the thick wooden... More

This is the perfect place to sit, relax, and enjoy a Halo Halo. Each time I bring friends to Intramuros we always stop at Barbara's.

I've read about Barbara's online thru different blogs and Tripadvisor. I booked thru phone about two weeks prior to our anniversary and the staff who answered the phone was very courteous. Upon our arrival, we were ushered by the friendly lady at the front door, too bad I forgot her name. But she was very warm and welcomed us like... More

My 31st birthday last year was a bit different than the usual celebrations that I had since I turned 30, 'cause I have this passion of making each of my birthdays unique every year. Too bad, I only realized it after 3 decades. So last year, I decided to make it quite cultural and historical thus I opted to had... More

I was touring a friend around Intramuros when we got really hungry and decided to eat at Barbara's because it was the closest local restaurant at the time. If you have an al fresco dining area, I think you should also make sure that a staff is assigned to look after guests sitting outside. We've been sitting waiting for someone... More
