Ayala Museum Cafe - what a pleasure

I came a decade ago and was pleased to see the place has survived intact, still clean, bright and modern. Food and drinks pleasing to the eye and palate. The Gin (pom pi?) drink was new, I loved it. Like other citrus, pomelo goes well with gin. Ukoy - a cake of little fried fish was a delicious... read more

The green mango iced tea is delicious, presentation is good, and the food is decent but it took the food a long time to come and they seem to be shortstaffed. Also, bathrooms are tiny.

The food, presentation and ambience are great. I just wish they would learn to serve food all at the same time. Our lunch came out at a trickle. Some had their food way ahead of the others. So we didn't end up eating all at the same time, or the earlier dishes would be cold.

Eaten here about 6 times. Loved the food and service on first three visits. Disappointed the last three. In one occasion, the sparkling wine they served me was not chilled. Duh? Last December 2014, I ordered my favorite kare-kare, beef adobo, and pork binagoongan and noticed that the quality, taste, and serving size/portion have deteriorated. The pork binagoongan had 98%...

We visited for mid morning refreshments, fresh orange and fresh lemon juices and both were very good, inside seemed to be busy with early lunch customers. However, if you come here for a drink at night time, it's a completely different crowd and the place has a lot more buzz about it with predominantly thirty ish customers intermingling with some...

Very expensive, waiters are not friendly, food is americanized, too crowdy. But it is the perfect location to start with a drink before going around the numerous restaurants into Greenbelt

the food wasn't hot. the service is so poor. i also work in f&b and i wanted to figure out what the problem was because i wanted to understand them but i guess it was just about poor service at all. they got no training about the dishes and the manager also never cared.

I met my cousins for after dinner drinks at M Cafe. It had an interesting menu and was excited to order duhat iced tea only to be disappointed because it was not available. The dalandan iced tea was good though and I ordered 2 more glasses the whole night. We ordered sinuglaw which was interesting and yummy (tanigue ceviche served... More

Having heard lots of great things about Museum Café, I decided to pay it a visit on the afternoon of 29 July 2014. I was served by Richard, from whom I ordered a watermelon-cucumber shake. He seemed to have completely forgotten my order until around half an hour later, when he suddenly appeared to realise that I had already placed... More
