Hidden gem with good food and service

I wouldn't know of this restaurant if it wasn't for my Auntie. It had a relaxing feeling of a cabin but there was the warmth of the friendly wait staff. Their oyster and pizza are a must-try. I even forgot something and the staff were prepared when I came by to pick it up. I recommend this resto if... read more

I've been coming back to this restaurant for years to order the butterflied shrimps, oyster Rockefeller and spinach pizza. I just never get tired of them. It is a nice place to unwind and have drinks at the end of the day. Their steak, osso buco & hainanese chicken are good too. There are days when both their front and... More

About 500m from the corner of Timog and Roces is this gem of a restaurant, a family favorite (and secret) for 15 years. Its dark and romantic, with a date vibe. My standard order is the butterfly shrimp, a ceasar salad, then lightly toasted lamb chops with garlic rice, and I end with the date cake. All delectable and worth... More

Taste of LA is really an institution in Quezon City when it comes to soulful food and ambiance. Inside you feel like you are tucked in your quiet corner happily drinking and eating your time. Its a nice date place. Plus you get the bistro feel yet they serve up some nice real classics to wet your appetite..

There were four of us and we opted to have a light dinner. The lighting created a cozy and warm atmosphere. It felt very homey and relaxing; a great place to unwind and have a conversation with friends. I read with trepidation the experience of one of the reviewers about a very inconsiderate group which seemed to think that they... More

This resto is great for dates, also for quiet dinners. They serve great oyster dishes, good pasta, pizza and seafood dishes like tanigue. Its worth the relatively high price. Among the best restos in the Morato area.

Taste of LA has been here for more than 2 decades. Food is still good but the interior of the restaurant has barely changed. I wonder why??? I think it's time it gets a make-over.

Had dinner there last night. Was told by a waiter that my son was not allowed in the restaurant. I apologized because I didnt know. After dinner, waiter rudely grabbed my sons drinking glass away from him because he said it might break. Good food, rude waiter and remember.....Kids not allowed.

Had dinner with friends I haven't seen in a while and decided to try this restaurant after hearing good reviews. It was supposed to be an intimate dinner where we could catch up with one another's life. Food was great. We started with thin crust pizza which was very good. Followed this up with an Asian salad and some grilled... More

The best baby back ribs I ever tasted! Pizza is a must try too! Forget about the Cheese Fondue, not worth it! Service wise? Poor, oh no, very poor!
