Good for relaxing and people watching, mostly friendly staff. Last visit was disappointing, so disappointing that I forget what it was......it certainly wasn't what I was expecting and sure wasn't close to being genuine.

They just reopened and are going through some teething pains. The restaurant has an ambitious variety of western and European dishes, but most show a bit too much of Filipino influence, ie: missing many important flavors and ingredients. But for something different, it is just fine. Gourmet dining it is not.

It's been quite some time since Frankies was operational. Good to see it back. New kitchen apparently otherwise no change. Same menu and that is great because the food is really food. Good food, great prices. Best place to eat ICM

I understand how this place is packed with foreigners, it could be delicious to their taste. Filipinos generally prefer sweeter foods hence our spaghetti, or pizzas usually have a taste of something sweet. I've been there twice, first was a couple of years ago, I think I ordered a curry, but I didn't like it at all, even barely finished... More

I came here for the vegetarian burger, but ugh! I could feel the msg running down my throat. Especially the malunggay corn soup.. don't ever go near it! It gave me a headache - literally.

We have been there ones. Pizza is acceptable. Lasagne and carbonara was poor. Only one thing which was delicious it was beef tacos.

The beer so cold And The Lasagne so good. Prices are good and the quality is high. You would not expect such a niche quality between all those jollibees and kfcs here.

The prices are not very cheap. We ordered calzone pizza, juice and beer. The pizza was great, authentic and with real cheese. This is probably why the dish has such a value. The tables are a bit small.

The menu is extensive, all the food is tasty, and they have a sort of healthy thing going on with "no msg" stickers on the menu. It's a good break from the regular fast food options. The staff isn't the most focused, but the owner is always around to keep service levels high
