Whenever I'm visiting Manila I always make a point of spending a leisurely afternoon having a long lunch at the Harbour View. The food is excellent - make sure you try the chili crab, and the dragon shrimps as well as the lobster. Only minor criticism is their limited wine selection and the number of bottles they have of each... More

Harbor View is Exactly that... a Restaurant with a pier on the Harbor,,, In the early evening you can watch the Sun Set and the Manila Skyline is a great view,,,, the food is varied,, good portions and reasonable price,,, You can pick your lobster or fish to be cooked to order!

Great location by the bay and the view of the sunset is amazing, make sure you take your camera! best shots are had by the end of the pier that makes up the restaurant. Food is wonderful, I strongly recommend the oysters Rockefeller and the Rainbow sushi platter. What you are eating was probably swimming in one of the fish... More

We have been here in this restaurant but we came back again and we'll come back again soon. My husband does not prefer red meat so we opted for seafood, but still have to choose carefully. Fish menu is ideal but i definitely choose some other for myself for a change. Great ambiance and superb flickering lights for a dinner... More

This restaurant definitely serves fantastic seafood. We loved it. Many celebrities seem to share this opinion (see the pictures on display). For a great atmosphere, try the roof-top deck. And the prices are most descent, to say the least.

Harbor View is a restaurant located right at the port and a part of the premises is on a bridge right on top of the water. The restaurant is decorated with hanging lights which gives the place a magical feel. The staff were friendly. But the waiters were not updated with the menu that was available and they had to...

Food was Ok and within the budget. Staff was fairly attentive. However, a bit smelly perhaps due to smokers around or could be some other sources of unpleasant smell nearby. The waiters here just carry the glasses of water with their hands, not on a tray as what I am used to see. I left a small tip because one... More

We stayed at the Manila hotel around the corner from the Harbor View and went there on our last night in Manila. Very attentive staff serving good seafood fare at a very reasonable price. The only issue with the outdoor setting is the amount of people smoking (as per everywhere else in the Philippines) - if only a restaurant could... More

Don't understand the "expensive" comments - very cheap food. For three people we payed a total of $70 - including tip. We each had two drinks, two entrees, and a desert and paid less than $25. Other than that, very friendly staff, good food, good service, charming location. Definitely recommend this restaurant
