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...

Liked the food, loved the ambiance but many of the wait staff don't deserve working in establishments such as Romulo Cafe. They are better off working as bouncers in some clubs, strut their machismos, and display their rude dispositions to unfortunate patrons. Will certainly not go back.

I had lunch at Romulo's Cafe, Scout Tuason last March 18, 2014. For beverages, I had a light beer and my friend had Cool As Cucumber which she found a little bit on the sweet side. Crispy Crablets and Ginataang Kohol were served for starters. True to the servers description, the Ginataang Kohol was not spicy. Chad, who was assisting... More

I like the cosy atmosphere of being in a former residence lined in cool trees and converted into an updated retro-resto design with historical feel [pictures of General/Ambassador Carlos P. Romulo, related to the owners of the place, adorn the walls]. Dining in local fare that has also been carefully prepared takes you back to past family gatherings where heirloom... More

They serve Filipino comfort food. The servings are a bit small if you are a group of heavy eaters. All in all the place is clean, food is very neatly presented. The quality is good as well. There is a nice ambiance The place is very spacious and can accommodate big groups.

A serene place to have a very good dinner with your family. All the food taste good, staff are always ready to serve you with a smile and a very competitive price. One of the best homey restaurant in Quezon City that is worth coming back for.

halaan soup is the best, also try sisig wrapped & chicken imbotido, friendly attentive staff, black & white decors & photos on the wall, at first it seems like a town house turned into restaurant, very homey ambiance though pricey but worthit. highly recommended.

I frequent the place with friends even with guests. I love their crispy pata and kare-kare. I brought my family and got too disappointed with their chicken lemon grass,ordered by my youngest son (at the moment). The chicken meat was so hard, stiff..seems that it was kept for so long. I hope that they can do something about it...the rest... More
