Always good desserts

Loved their dayap cake, and other desserts. Good hearty fare, on a slightly higher student budget. Service could be improved though, waiters can be more attentive, faster and friendlier... and outside seating area can be cleaner ;) id still come back though

Quick meetups over meals or cake in the premiere university of the Philippines will not disappoint. Remember that brewed coffee comes with a refill and botomless iced tea is available.

Chocolate Kiss has been my favorite for Christmas cakes, so I came here to order. Since it was already lunch I decided to eat out at the ground floor branch. I ordered Pasta Margherita accompanied by Mango Juice. This Pasta Margherita came with slices of tender chicken powdered with Parmesan Cheese on top, with spinach fettuccine swimming in a tomato-based... More

The place is usually full during meal times because of its convenient location for UP people, and it does offer better food than the canteens. Good place to hold meetings, reasonably priced. There are two Chocolate Kiss restaurants at Bahay Alumni. One on the ground floor, another on the second floor. They do not have the same menu, but offer... More

This restaurant started when I was still a student at UP. This was a favorite haunt. I always ordered -- and I still do now --- the adobo flakes, carrot cake, and iced tea. I still eat here whenever I visit the campus. Always good service and good food.

We were in the UP Diliman area and we decided to eat here. We ordered the Chix in a Basket, Kalbi Chim, Mushroom Soup, Molo Soup, and a slice of Kahlua Rum Cake. The mushroom soup was great especially with the croutons. The Molo Soup was ok. The Chix in a Basket was crispy and meaty. The Kalbi Chim was... More

I have a soft spot for this cafe from the afternoons I've spent drinking their refillable iced tea (real iced tea, not the powdered mix) while working on case studies. their chicken kiev and Adobo flakes are my default orders, and i adore their dayap chiffon and date walnut cakes.

Chocolate Kiss is so convenient to me since I just live near the campus. Located inside the Bahay ng Alumni, the place is artsy, clean, and homey. Although I find their meals normal and not that super delicious, I love their cakes, especially their blueberry cheesecake and devil's cake. The waitresses are not that attentive, though. The place is small.... More

I usually order their daily specials because of the new, off-the-menu food offerings at good value-for-money. But at past 11:30 am today, I was told by the waitress that the daily special would only be available by 12 nn. Found it odd that they serve it later than they used to (and much later than previously advertised: 11 am onwards),... More

Dear Mr. Patagan, In behalf of The Chocolate Kiss family, we would like to sincerely say sorry for what you experienced last Saturday, and the many times we have fallen short. Regarding the Lunch of the Day -- you're very right in saying that it should be ready by 11:00 AM, so we (the management) were just as surprised with... More
