Sala was a cute and elegant fine dining restaurant. The food was yummy and ambiance was great. Service was good (except for one of the female waitresses who seemed like she had better things to do) and I would definitely come here again. It is pretty pricy even for fine dining but I would say it was worth it. I... More

The service was more than bad for a Restaurant like this. We asked to dine outside. The waiter served cutlery bu no napkins. We had to remind him twice to get a napkin. Finally he brought napkins after the appetizer was served. Bread and butter was served after the appetizer was served. Bread was offered in a large basket and... More

This place is quite sophisticated with a very modern western menu. A small restaurant with good service. It is pretty high up there for Manila on price. Meals are all very interesting and on the small portion / Nuevo style.

We had our dinner here. Great food great ambiance. Its just that staffs are really pushy in offering wine drinks. The staff offered me three times and I also rejected him thrice. It was kinda annoying but all in all it was great.

There is simply nothing wrong to say about this place. The staff were welcoming and friendly the moment you walked in the door. They were attentive and yet not hovering. And wow!!! The food was amazing. We got the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fabulous. It was like each dish just kept getting better. The duck we... More

The place was immaculate as expected, the linens crisp are freshly scented, the glassware and cutlery shining perfectly. I was excited to come back after about 3 months of not visiting. We had the business lunch set for this lunch, my colleague ordered the lamb shoulder and I got the grilled salmon. Good sized entrees but not spectacular. Prized at... More

It's a nice place for both business and pleasure. It's more of initmate dining location, pricey, food is good, wine choices are not that many though but overall worth the price.

Finally made it to Sala last night (and again today for lunch) after hearing about it for some time. Excellent ... an intimate venue serving fine food that could compete with a good cafe in New York. Prices on the high side for Manila but I didn't feel unreasonable given portion size and quality. A block away from bustling Greenbelt... More

Small selection of excellent, subtle dishes. Ideal for quiet conversations. Fine dining. Try the risotto.

Cannot really do justice to the quality and professional levels of service at Sala. Without exception every visit and every meal there was memorable and you walk away feeling like you really tried something special. It is not for anyone on a low budget but I do believe it's worth every peso.
