Reminiscing the past

Looking at their crew will let one feel of the heroism of our Katipuneros. The place was well preserved. The smiles that would greet you is very Filipino . They served sumptious food.

This is my second time in Barbara's. The restaurant was practically ours during we dined. Only 2 tables were occupied, ours and the other guests. The first time we dined here we were not able to enjoy the show much because it's too crowded due to christmas season, you won't able to watched the performance clearly. But this time, the... More

We had a formal dinner here as a part of our activity in DOT. Inside Intramuros, just in front of oldest stone church in the Philippines, San Agustin. If you want to taste Filipino Food in a romantic ambiance, try here. The rate for their buffet is reasonable and worth it. While eating, you will be entertained with a cultural... More

Located at Intramurous, Philippines. Sad that we arrive here at night. Didn't managed to cover all the Barbara's but they have nice cuisine, nice setting inside. You should dine here when u visit Intramurous.

For our first lunch in Manila, our excellent guide Stella took my husband and me to Barbara’s Restaurant. It was wonderful! We ate in the upstairs dining room where were embroidered linen tablecloths and napkins and multiple crystal chandeliers. There was an appealing buffet, but my we wanted something light so we ordered garlic soup with egg, which we both... More

We were taken to this restaurant as a large group on a business trip. Spanish themed old building and a nice setting in the dining area. Food was traditional and the buffet great, without being extravagant. The highlight of the night was the dancing show and music. Traditional Spanish and Philippine dancing and they got everyone up to try the... More

Barbara's is recommended for visitors in a hurry who would like to have a taste of the Philippines all in a span of 3 hours. It's just across the San Agustin Church where guests can park. The dinner show is better than the lunch time version. We arrived at 630 PM and had a good table. It's best to phone... More
