Going to Manila if one lives in Pasig City or Marikina is like going abroad...the traffic is daunting and the trip can take more than hour. So one must be truly determined to experience La Cocina de Tita Moning to embark on this journey. And given the long journey, I suggest you call and reserve your table! The restaurant is... More

A priceless experience! I love the food and the ambience. Feels like I'm dinning back in the 60s. The house is very old fashioned. Service is very very excellent me and my girlfriend was entertained by the head server "tining" she use to serve the owner of the house "Don Alejandro" who is now in peace. What an honor to... More

We had our Christmas lunch here last December 2013 and the food was delicious and very Old World like the heritage house which houses the restaurant. One must reserve in advance and for Christmas, set meals were priced at PHP1500 per person (even though you'd pick out a PHP 1000 set meal). What was initially a 6 course lunch turned... More

We decided to tour the Malcanang Palace and combine this with lunch at La Cocina de Tita Moning. Booking is required as no walk ins are allowed. As its located within the Palace Complex we were not sure about availability of taxis so had a taxi wait and paid for his waiting time. The palace and restaurant are a very... More

This incredibly unique restaurant is set in the heritage house of a Filipino doctor and his wife. Your dinner starts with cocktails in the garden, then a tour of the house, including the doctor's old clinic, remarkable photography collection and library. You dine in the house, with staff dressed in maid's attire. The food is based on the recipe's from... More

Not a restaurant you are easily going to stumble across - fortunate that Filipino friend took us there. You effectively drive into someone's driveway and park your car in their back garden. The house looks like it could do with a lick of paint, but actually, it feels authentic as a result too. This well-to-do household had entertained many parties... More

A great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Exploring the rich heritage of Manila during the Spanish reign. A museum of love recreated by a granddaughter which allowed us a ringside experience of a Spanish aristocratic home of a 100 years ago. The paintings, the furniture, the porcelain, the glass figurines not to mention the camera collection the ham radios... More

Back to the old Spanish era! Nostalgic moment when you dine with your family. Kids will love to see old cameras, old stethoscope, old chairs etc. a bit of history. Food is good too!

La Cocina de tita Moning is possibly one of the finest dining experiances I have ever experianced. You must choose your menu and course of eating prior to making your reservations...

As you enter the gates of La Cocina De Tita Moning, you are transported a world of the past -- with the aged wood floorings, to the paintings hung on the walls, until the intricacies of the designs and antiques which belonged to the family. Started off at the verandah where the tour guide will address you with some cocktails,... More
