The food/menu were truly delicious from the first bite to the last. The price is on the high end side but this should not stop one from experiencing and tasting the fare being offered.The place...

heavenly food, that's it. for special occasions only primarily because of the price and the fact that you need to reserve and not simply walk in.

Set in a heritage home this cozy restaurant features traditional Filipino cuisine with a very creative modern touch, a very ambitious menu with excellent delivery. The staff will really do their best to make you feel at home. They also offer takeout and sell some goodies made in house. I recommend the Salsa Monja and their Cheese spread. This restaurant...

By far one of the best dining experiences I've ever had!!! The night started with a tour of the Legarda's ancenstral home, then we got to dine using the family's heirloom china, silverwares and glasswares, some of which came from the family's trip to Italy back in 1940. Even the menu was pegged from family recipes, and several servers have... More

Celebrating a special occasion here was perfect. We started with a cooling lemongrass tea for cocktails in the garden, followed by a short tour of the house. Art Deco in design with its furnishings carefully preserved, it was a beautiful family home that provided a perfect backdrop to our family celebration. It also made for a great conversation piece around... More

A private museum housing a private kitchen. The museum was quaint though it did lack a guide or description of the various rooms and finishing on display.

While we enjoyed the tour of this beautiful historic house near the Malacañang which really reminded us of our grandmother’s, the food was below our expectation even if we felt the smiling staff did their best to please their guests. Our meal started with the complimentary queso de bola and iced tea, both nothing special. But the main dishes really... More
