This is really nothing to special or interesting really.

A circular roundabout kind of plaza with a fountain in the middle of it surrounded by some KTVs, a massage place, and a few restaurants.

Some beggars ask for change and cabs slow down the flow of traffic trying to get you as a fare because they all think you need a ride though you never signaled any of them lol.

Though mildly interesting I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

Nothing else to say really about it.

The only time I visited Remedios Circle was in July 2019. My first impression of it was that it was really empty and was withheld from becoming anything else due to the history it holds. As of today, it seems that it is very ambiguous. You have Cafe Adriatico as a tourist spot which is very Spanish, then outside of that, you have small commercial establishments. I believe that if Manila really wants to rebirth Remedios Circle, they must choose whether they want to turn it into a national tourist spot, somewhat like a museum, or rebrand it to spark a new type of interest in the area.

Ever since I was young, I’ve been visiting the Remedios circle and eating around during lunchtime after Sunday mass at Malate Church. The concept of the plaza itself slowly failed as time passes by. It already became dull, dirty and disorderly. Withered trees, roads, and the sidewalks are equal in size and given that there are many intersections, accidents are highly possible and were some things I experienced. With such huge space, the Remedios Circle could have been capitalized on much greater if only the remnants of its history could have been curated more creatively and strategically since it’s a part of the Heritage of Manila. There’s nothing much for you to learn about this area since not all locals have the information for you to take in when you do visit.

Remedios is a wide, open area in the middle of a busy city. Although it might look plain and empty in the morning, at night a lot of people go to the circle both with good intent and not. There are almost no pedestrian lanes and the place doesn’t look like it was maintained properly. Other than that, the circle has the potential to be a tourist spot if it is properly taken care of because of its history. There are many resto-bars and cafes around Remedios Circle that tourists can visit. The restaurants usually have a traditional feel to it like Cafe Adriatico. This gives hope that Remedios can persevere into being a bigger, better and happier community.

The Remedios circle has a wide-open space, with a fountain in the middle which gives a good ambiance perfectly made for people who seeks to have peace of mind, calm and chill ambiance. Some of the restaurants surrounding Remedios Circle give that vintage vibe because the architecture of those buildings never changed. There are a lot of options to choose from too if you don’t know where or what to eat. There are a lot of restaurants surrounding the area. However, Remedios Circle can certainly be improved. The place could be liven up, and we hope they add more activities to do around the area. We hope they can do something about the plaza and it’s dullness. Overall, the experience was okay. Café Adriatico is worth visiting because of the great food, but the area could have more amenities.

Year 2012 when I started to passing by at this circle almost everyday going to/from work in Adriatico St. Beggars and homeless were everywhere and you feel unsafe because someone might snatch your bag. It was really sad that this circle holds an importance and historical events way back Spanish Era. Thinking this circle could be transform into a very pleasant park and tourist destination, old famous restaurants and shops around the area would be an addition to be an attraction as well.
After 4 years this place got changed, happy to say it was restored. Thanks to the City government of Manila and other parties who planned to maintain and restore.

We were so early for the dinner so we stayed for a while going around this area. About dusk we sit here for a while before we choose our table at Cafe Adriatico..

The area looks nice and the fountain started to produce colorful lights. I was amazed that people enjoyed the scenery too.

I was most pleasantly surprised to revisit this well known tourist site in Malate. On my previous visit some years ago, I was less than impressed by the sordid conditions that existed here. However, what a difference some TLC and remarkably good civic planning have made.. No more beggars, hookers, squatters or undesirables. The place is now really worth a visit. Clean and green, with it's circumference of palm trees and most impressive, a working fountain that colour changes at night. Well worth a visit and also well done to whoever arranged the transformation.

This area has been cleaned up a lot since last year, there used to be lots of bums and buggers about ,but now a lot less.Sure it is the real Manila, with lots of people and crazy people walking about, but you never feel unsafe, the circle is nothing special, but with a visit at night
