“Good food and great staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I enjoyed their enchiladas! It is a bit pricey though (meal+drinks=PhP450). Not your regular priced meal. But then mexican food is not also your regular meal. Don't forget to try camarones (grilled prawn). Mexican salad is also delicious. If you are eating here for dinner, dining outside is recommended.

Plus points for their uber friendly staff. :)

“Nice vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I've been here 3 times, and I always order the burritos and quesadillas. But my absolute favorite is their corn on the cob. There's a good selection of drinks. I can't rate this a 5, because I don't like the nachos. Service is fast and friendly. The place makes me feel like I'm in gritty. East L.A.

“Holayumyum!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Texmex in Manila! I was told that This restaurant has been around for two years. If you have a craving for mexican food this is the place!
We ordered the fiesta salad-skip it; lengua plate- yum; beef burrito- yumyum; beef tacos- were in a soft taco shell. The beef was very tasty. Ask for the green chili sauce. And nacho chips were good; theyre not store bought.
Also servers were nice and walked me thru the menu. Pay as you order; credit cards accepted!

“Nice change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Not bad for Mexican food in the Philippines. I ordered the big platter of mixed meats which was pretty good. The kids enjoyed their nachos and Jarritos. One thing lacking in the mexican restaurants in manila is decent tortillas. Bad ones can be a downer. Otherwise, it was a nice change and nice to see some cheerful servers.

“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.
