“Classic foods of a different taste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We had a trip to CLBF last July. We intend to get a taste of CL's foods that we are familiar of and see how different it would be from the usual's.

Nilaga Corn Chowder - Average
Sisig Baskets - Average
Gambas Flambé - Very Good with a familiar tasting tomato-based sauce
Crispy Pata - Average (sauce tasted weird). I was expecting to be more crispy
Flat Iron Steak - Very Good and even the Sweet Potato Croquette is very good
Tiger Prawns - Very Good and so is the sauce
Frozen Brazo - Average

“Good Filipino Food Classics with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Ate there for a date with my girlfriend to finally know how the place is. We went there after a reservation, ate the usual course of having an appetizer, main course, dessert.

We got the sisig shots (minced pork wrapped in pita) for appetizer, lengua (cow tongue) and sinigang (sour pork broth with yam) for the main course and sweet banana for the dessert.

Over-all, taste was excellent! Ambiance is also good, but yep, food was pricey. Good for special occasions, not for the daily type of meal.

“Filipino food with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

bistro filipino serves filipino food with a twist. we love the 3 mango salad and lumpia with frozen vinegar ( this is not exactly how it is called, it is under appetizer in the menu). we also got to try its beef kalderata (pie), a pansit and grilled chicken. they also have truffles. i recommend the chocolate, but not the peanut butter jelly. for dessert, we also had maja cheesecake, which according to them is one of their bestsellers, we didn't like it though. however, overall, we had a nice dining experience at bistro filipino and would like to go back one day.

“Fantastic Experience in the middle of Manila”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We were lucky enough to have the chef and his wife come and talk us through a degustation menu designed especially for us. The food was exceptional managed to be modern without losing the traditional flavours of the Philippines.

“Good Food in a Nice Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Bistro Filipino is in an old house away from the maddening and traffic scene in Tomas Morato. The interior is a bit luxurious by Tomas Morato restaurant standards. The food is very good---tasty and utterly delicious. A few dishes are quite creative such as the sisig in pastry cups and the do-it-yourself fresh spring rolls. Service is friendly. The buffet is good value for money.
