I dined with my mother and a family friend at the Gateway branch. We were immediately seated and were given menus. We liked the cozy and inviting ambience, the lighting is just right, not too dim, and they were playing old songs which really sets the mood for a fabulous dinner. We ordered Squid Tactics, the spiciness I found to... More

Great ambiance, tasty food, courteous and attentive staff! .... perfect for a celebration. My husband and I were here to try a better place to dine. We were not disappointed. That was more than what we expected. The menu, chef's salad was fantastic, beef menu and the fish glazed with onions menu were delicious. We then tried the espresso (just... More

I've been to this restaurant many times. The ambience is wonderful and the food excellent. The consistently high standard of the service is unusual in a Reastaurant that has been open for so many years. I strongly recommend this place for a fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere

Was there on Friday night and must say the place look pretty rustic. Ordered an onion soup, mixed salad and beef with garlic rice Philippines style and a bottle of wine of course. Food is very good. Service could improve though.

My friend brought me to this bistrot/restaurant. The chicken with garlic is very good and the calmars entree. Leave space for dessert, order the famous SAN RIVAL. One order is good for two people as it's sweet, but so good. Next time I'm in manila, I'll go back for sure. BTW the service is really good too :)

Good food, nice ambiance! If you want to have quiet place where you can have a good conversation, with decent people around as well, this is the place.

this is a nice low-key cafe/restaurant. the food is good and it has a nice ambiance. i wouldn't recommend going out of your way to go there, but if you are in the area then it is an excellent option

It was my first time to eat at Cafe Adriatico with friends last February. The place have this rustic feel of old Manila which I like. I ordered a salad (I forgot the name) but it has mangoes in it. Lots of mangoes! And the Four Seasons juice was really good, it felt fresh to me, not the type that... More
