“Best thing here is the taste of the food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Completely enjoyed how the food tasted in Orale. We tried the Flautas (not in the regular menu but look for their blackboard where they write the specials) and the quesadillas. Between the two I liked the quesadillas more. Nice ambiance and good service. The place wasn't full during Sunday lunch time so expect to be served within 10 minutes of placing your order. Their strawberry margarita, though pricey, was good and wasn't lacking in the alcohol. Expect to spend around P300-P400 for a meal for two. There is plenty of parking at the venue and its location is right infront of the fort strip space (facing BGC). The reason I didn't give this a 5-star is becuase of the servings which I found too small. So if there are 2 of you and you are very hungry, order a third dish.

“mexican takeout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

chanced upon this resto after workout at the gym in the fort strip. The place is in the same building so upon exit Orale! is directly in sight. The place is very simple. Practically a takeout place, they just have a few chairs and benches outside for some fast dining. Burtitos are good, as alwasy theyre very filling. I wasnt really expecting much form this experience but they delivered. The taste and flavors are spot on. Service was fast which is also a good thing. I would definitely be back for some takeout next time.

“I Love This PLace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Very relaxed outdoor cafe

Food is best Mexican in Manila

Basically a takeaway place with benches and chairs outdoors, so no aircon, choose night time

Excellent ice cold beer

Cheap

“La comida Mexicana es deliciosa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

One of the best Mexican restaurants I have tried in Manila.
I was impressed on the freshness of their ingredients. Even the burrito and corn tortillas are made from a fresh dough. I ordered Carne asada burrito and Taco salad, both dishes were great. I just hope they would put more beef than rice on the burrito. :)
I am guessing everything on the menu tastes good and authentic. Attention should be put on the restaurant: few flies was hovering my table, need to install air shower on their door. Drops of water from the hanging A/C, and napkins should be available on the table.
Overall, I'd recommend Orale anytime you guys will crave for Mexican food. Mexicalli can learn a thing or two from Orale' .

“Honest burritos and salsa using fresh ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Here with friends on a Tuesday evening and dined outside. Format is casual and friendly, order at the cash from chalkboard style menus. I had chicken burrito with mango salsa (excellent) and double cheese quesadilla (so-so). Ask for your sour creme on the side if that is your vie, as they will just dribble it on top of everything. Excellent guacamole and a small selection of beers.

Would eat here again for sure.
