“Great Food and Old World!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

FOOD QUALITY: Very Good! The restaurant serve Spanish Cuisine. We had two types of Paella (Valenciana and Negra), Pata Estofado, Lengua Estofado, Calamares Fritos, Callos, and Special Fried Chicken smothered with crispy garlic). Our favorite were the callos and the Paella Negra.

AMBIANCE & FUNCTIONALITY: Very old world and Latin. You will be transported to the world of a tapas bar in Madrid and Spain. The dining room was intimate. Fellowship will overflow because of its well stocked bar with a wide variety of hard drinks and beer.

LEVEL OF SERVICE: On the Dot! The food were delivered in the right sequence. Complimentary bread and butter were served first then the tapas. The main courses followed in no time. Servers were very professional. The requests were fast and reliable. Although during our visit we were the only guests.

VALUE FOR MONEY: High Class! Total bill reached P7,000++ for 9 people or roughly P777 /pax. Did we ever tip? Hehehehe!

“Great Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

The Tapas and the Paella was great. The servings were also huge enough to share. They have good pasta too but will defintely recommend the Paella Marinara.
