Superb

You cannot missed one of their specialty, the Crispy Pata. If you want a different ambiace, Romulo Cafe is one of the best situated in Quezon City. Place is cozy specially for couples. Quiet and a bit romantic ambiance. You should try this!

My friends and I had dinner in their Kapayapaan room. We love everything we ordered. It is prepared, presented and tasted well and good. I specially love their Kare-kare, the appetizer of crunchy taro with cheese, their mocktails, the honey spareribs, the kaldereta with queso de bola and the banoffee pie. Everything we ordered arrived promptly. The waitstaff are attentive.What... More

We went here with two local friends that we'd met while on holiday in El Nido. When we got back to Manila, they promised us dinner. They brought us here, did all of the ordering, and we had a spectacular night. It was a beautiful restaurant, yet welcoming and relaxed. The food was delicious and the service was great as... More

I celebrated my birthday here last March 06, 2015! Whoaaaah. Anyway... I had a great time and I choose this place to celebrate my birthday as they never failed me with my girlfriends. I wasn't that particular when it comes dining in a restaurant but my husband is very sensitive when it comes to place and the food itself. I... More

This may be a simple design restaurant and is well lighted so don't expect anyone pulling out a ring for an engagement but it is definitely one of the best family place where the children can be exposed to the greatness of the man to whom this cafe is named after. Carlos P. Romulo is one of the pride of... More

My aunt celebrated her 80th birthday here and I love how they fixed the old house of Pres. Romulo and made it modern. Good Filipino food. Love looking at the old pictures hanged on the wall. It was also a nice place to have a romantic dinner.

Café Romulo is a quaint fine dining restaurant that offers traditional Filipino favourites. Flying Tilapia, Kare Kare, Gising-gising, adobo etc. What makes the food different is the way they cook it. The Flying Tilapia is an innovative creation. Fried to a crisp, the whole fish is placed on a dish with the meat cut off such that it appears to... More

Food is always consistently good. Service is friendly and welcoming. Prices are not bad for the quantity served. I always feel at home whenever i visit this restaurant. This location can handle small to medium size parties. I'm glad to have this location nearby for satisfying Filipino fare.

Had dinner with 4 guest and the food was good. Authentic and felt like home cooked food. The place is not big but feel comfortable with a indoor and alfresco seating. Ordered 5 dishes and with garlic rice, fresh juices and 2 beer and the bill is less than PHP 3000. Good value and will return to try other dishes.
