“Delicioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

One of my faves is Kare-Kare . It taste like a homemade. The next all time fave is Dinuguan. Their Puto Bumbong , Tokwat Baboy are sooo yum-O! I always call thru their 21212 hotline delivery but rarely dining in. Great service! Fast and quick delivery . Packaging of take aways are nicely and neatly done. Wait for my call soon, Cafe Via Mare!

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

The salads and entrees always satisfy plus the service is always good. A staple for Filipino cuisine, Via Mare always satisfies. The St. Luke's branch (Bonifacio Global City) is a cut above.

“Excellent Filipino food, casual nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

If you're looking for great traditional Filipino food at a relaxed family restaurant you'll find just what you're looking for at Cafe Via Mare. Definitely one of the best restaurant choices in Power Plant Mall. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced, and it's always crowded so I think the word's gotten out! Fabulous adobo. Just a great little restaurant in every way.

“Good and safe choice for a quick taste of Filipino short order fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is our go to resto when we're feeling like a Filipino merienda. Nothing too exciting but always reliable. I usually go for the palabok (egg sauce noodles) and one of the sticky rice cakes (either the palitaw or puto bumbong). Late nights after a movie, the arroz caldo is a definite comfort food. It's on the pricey side for a Filipino eatery but you can count on the food being safe and adjusted to foreign palates. Good place to brings guests.
