My family and i visited the branch in Trinoma located at the ladies' section of landmark. I kept wondering why they chose that location since people at the department store will keep peering into the restaurant. The resto didn't even have a door or clear glass as a division. There are 2 things I liked about this place: the puto... More

Their bibingka and puto bumbong are still my favorites. It's filipino food with a twist. Delicious. But the serving size is just right for one person.

My college friends decided to meet up here. We ordered alimasag omelet, crispy tapa, kare-kare. Service was good and it's in the ground level so it was easy to find. Will recommend :)

Fresh Oysters is synonymous to Cafe Via Mare. I can eat dozens of them if I can, which are freshly flown in for the day. Their dessert shooters are also great, a good "cap" after a hearty meal.

Ambiance was nice for a family - atmosphere lots of light and upward space. We were able to chat comfortably as it was not very noisy as some restaurants could be. Waiter Larry provided exceptional service. He was proactive and quick. Choice of food was enticing and proved to be delicious. what was meant to be a breakfast turned out... More

Located in glitzy Greenbelt, this restaurant is pricey, but worth it. Good Filipino food. The place can get crowded at times, so plan your visit.

I'm impressed with their own style and presentation of food, keep it up! Hot food is served piping hot, cold foods are served cold.

I love cafe via mare. One of the best Filipino resto in our country. I love the chicken barbecue. The foods were very tasty and nutritious. They have the best bibingka. It's best to eat with family gathering.

We always get the rellenong bangus or stuffed fish and the egg rolls which are our favorites. Usually with a nice light salad, very good. This place is already an institution.
