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.

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.

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

Price - too... More

After visiting Ayala museum, right in front of the door you can found this cafe, the place is nice for lunch or just for having a tea time.

I have eaten here 4 times. The menu is very interesting with a mix of modern Filipino food and fusion Asian-continental. Food has always been very good and it seems the kitchen is managed well. Decor and location of the restaurant is excellent. Chocolate cake has to be one of the best in Manila. What distracts from the place is... More

everytime I go to the Philippines I feel I must go to the Museum Cafe for a meal. The location is excellent and central, the outdoor space is very breezy even on a hot and humid day - the food is excellent - Philippine comfort food with a twist. Love the many different sauce options for instance. love their Pinoy... More
