A friend took us here for her Birthday Lunch and we all had a good time. The homey atmosphere, the warm service and the authentic dishes from the Romulo family all made the experience memorable. It was a bit difficult to find but in the end the place was cozy and was in a quiet area of Quezon City. We... More

I looked for a central place to take overseas co-workers for lunch (living near to this restaurant so they wouldn't have to travel far) and saw mixed reviews; however, the majority of them were applauding the food. The food to me was pretty good yet the 'locals' that we were with said it was average so they get a +... More

I love how this place looks very cozy and homey amidst the busy streets of the Tomas Morato area. Though this restaurant is quite hard to find, I can say it was worth the time and the visit. It has small rooms perfect for intimate gatherings with your friends and loved ones. I also love how simple and classic the... More

It was supposed to be just an ordinary dinner for me and my friends but many thanks to Romulo Cafe for making it somewhat a little bit special. :)

Had lunch here last week with 3 of my colleagues. The dining area on the left side is a bit crowded and dark but food was great. Customer service is also great, waiters are always available, attentive and very friendly. We ordered the Kaldereta with Queso de Bola - my absolute favorite, Kare-Kare, Gambas and Pomelo w Turnip salad. I... More

Pro- food are great. B But...... Con-no parking -slow service--the food was great but because service was slow, we got frustrated on asking for follow up on our order. We just cancelled our dessert because it took like forever on waiting... -quite expensive

food is too expensive for it's purported ambience. parking is not too covenient, and the stairs, rooms, tables, etc are a bit too old for a supposedly elegant place. what you really pay extra for is the name Romulo, which is not quite commensurate as to value and experience. i don't mind going back if they lower the prices, or...
