After our National Museum visit and a short trip to Jollibee to freshen up, we went to Barbara's Heritage Restaurant at Intramuros for dinner. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Intramuros, we had our eat all you can dinner buffet, buffet opens at 6:30PM. It's a very classy restaurant that exudes the old Manila charm. While we were waiting for the... More

We came here to celebrate our last night in Manila and it was such a treat! The cultural show was absolutely a highlight of us stay in Manila and a fantastic introduction to Kultura Filipina! The show went for about 45 mins. The food was reasonable. It was delicious, but there wasn't too much of a variety for a buffet.... More

WE had dinner here after our Fort Santiago tour. The place is like old Manila with antiques. The staff is quite friendly but food is average. The dance show is great! Costumes are beautiful!

It was a highly recommended restaurant by the hotel. We could't get a dinner reservation so we went for lunch. They only served buffet during lunch. It was a very average meal and certainly not what we were expecting. The service was quite lay-back and staff mixed up our simple coffee order. It was a meal that we certainly wished... More

I could have sworn I went back in time finding this quaint and pretty little cafe, tucked away from the busy streets of Intramuros. White tablecloths, gorgeously styled bar, stone walls and as fresh and clean as the day it was built draw you in for either a quick lunch or just coffee or a cool drink. The food is... More

I been here several times with my foreign guests and they all enjoyed the cultural dance show and even experienced dancing tinikling which is our national dance. Buffet food is just okay over all I would highly recommend this restaurant for its dinner with cultural show.

The food was not great, but the show was wonderful. It's a shame with all the great local food that the buffet was rather bland, dry, and tasteless
