I was stuck in Manila rush hour traffic for 3 hours getting to Casa Roces. And it was worth it! The moment I stepped in through the gate, and I forgot about the long looooong ride. Elegant interior with paintings on the walls and soft lighting - I knew I would like whatever they served. I was right! Everything was... More

the structure looks very unassuming from the outside despite it being located just across the presidential palace. it was like coming home to a house in the province. valet service was available. we ate during lunch on a weekend and the place wasn't packed; or it could be because we arrived at already past 1pm. the place was very elegant...

Dined with family of 8 inside Malacanang compound. That means getting thru guarded checkpoints but one is rewarded with old architecture, a living gallery of a revered journalist and a very relaxed homey feel. We availed of DealGrocer deals but added Rose' wine, pork ribs and churritos and were rewarded with heirloom recipes with a new twist. DealGrocer had a... More

Sopa molo was the only good thing about our dinner here and yeah, the location. I prefer it's location over La Cocina de Tita Moning because it's on the better side of San Miguel (quiter, cleaner side as it's very close to Malacañan) and that would be the only reason I would come back here. The ambiance is ok, but... More

Casa Roces is in the closest fine dining restaurant near the center of Philippine government...Malacanang. It was our first time there and located in the corner of Aguado Street, one can't find a good parking slot. Their available valet service provided an added convenience to the diners and guests. The restaurant is actually an old house that belonged to the... More

We took our family to Casa Roces to celebrate fathers' day. We just searched the web for recommendations and was interested in their promo. The place is so cozy and very welcoming. But the food is really very special and unique. The perfect finish is their dessert, particularly their keylime pie, which was just heavenly. They have valet parking, which... More

Casa Roces is located in a pleasant old house in a small compound across from Malacanan Palace -- the presidential residence -- in the very center of old Manila. To get there, in fact, you need to pass through security checkpoints -- not too surprising and in our case, for some reason, not very difficult (being taken around Manila by... More

Situated at the Malacanang Complex, Casa Roces offers a peaceful and mood setting dinner. The food is nice and affordable. Service however must be address. Some waiter must be retrained on how to treat customer. There was a rude waiter when we dine for the second time. Anyway, i like casa roces because it is an anceatral house converted into... More

Went there on a Sunday night for a dinner. The place is very conducive for family night out or bonding with friends. The facade looks interesting and the interior is even more fascinating. Everything went well until we were ready to take our orders. We are a group of 5 people and most of our orders were not available. One... More
