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

First meal in Manila with disappointing experience, service staff recommended us to not so popular and netiher tasty treat from menu, the fruit salad prepared serves with super sour mango, this could be a 'traditional taste' however we were not warned with the sourness and disappointed with the orders, service staffs not friendly and food serves slow. 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. They serve this chicken BBQ wich they call chicken inasal, the serve it in a traditional way full of flavor and the chicken cooked perfectly , just loved them.

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

We were treated here by a very special friend whom we have not met in decades. The food was really good and their presentation is really a wonder. They have made a fusion of filipino delicacies and our friend was happy that we were very satisfied with the menu. We will definitely come back and will make sure to recommend... More

Went here last July for lunch and ordered the Tiger Prawns in Aligue sauce - what was I thinking! But I took the plunge anyway. The interior is classy, intimidating even. The upholstered seats were done in fine green fabric. The staff attentive and courteous. The appetizers, though, were a letdown, and prevented me from giving an excellent rating -... More

I took my wife's parents for a nice Sunday brunch because we like M-Cafe … we ate there many times for dinner. However, I can not say the same thing for Sunday brunch. The selection was not that great. The setup with picking one main course from a menu … again it is not ideal and it is not what... More
