Good view over Remedios, food looked ok but we stuck to cold bottles of SMB. (You can get it for half price across the street.) Just another slightly disappointing bar in Manila I'm afraid.

While it is an institution in Malate, Manila, it does maintain its old charm and consistently good food. Have been there a couple times for lunch, and enjoyed the humus dips, olives and bread, as well as the french onion soup. Tried a Filipino dish on the menu and didn't enjoy it. Worth a visit if you find yourself stuck... More

Great food, Outdoor seating, Traditional Spanish ambience, pleasant staff, good value. Arrive early if you want a good seat as it very popular.

Cafe Adriatico and sister restaurant Abe which are back to back at the Mall of Asia in Manila still whip up some of the best traditional Filipino-Spanish cuisine in the country. Their version of the ubiquitous 'Lechon' is superb to say the least. Their 'kare-kare' really wonderful, one of the best I have tasted. Must experience.

So I took my family out and made sure we were hungry as I planned to order up a storm. We started out with Arroz Caldo, tokwat baboy and palabok. We planned to oder more since... More

This restaurant is pretty awesome for a few reasons. The food is good, they're open late, they take credit cards, there is good outdoor seating, and it's all at a really good price for Manila.

Corner of Remidios and Adriatico Street. Good food, fair prices and a smart little outdoor seating area

Cafe Adriatico is a place that we frequented in Manila during our time in The Philippines. I want to say for the most part I enjoy the food they have there. But if anything I would say just stick with the Chicken Kiev and Chicken Stroganoff. The portion sizing of the meals is humble but for the price still reasonable... More

We eat here every trip to Manila. Like many of the old restaurants they now have a mall presence, but the Adriatico street location off Remedios Circle has the ambience, so we've never tried the others. Good food and nice portions. We each choose a pica pica, soup and a main course leaving no room for desert. After a nice... More
