What I loved in this resto was: first, the location; so geographically located & easy to find, just beside GB chapel & GB4. Second, the ambience, esp. at night. I brought my balikbayan friends & we really had a cozy chat over dinner. The place is not crowded & lighting is just right. Lastly, I loved the food. I asked... More

Quiet Wednesday evening dinner with friends and baby. Food is a bit expensive for philippines but it is very good and everywhere else (Greenbelt) nearby is similar prices. Some of best Filipino food I've had. Staff were good also

Friendly waiters, terrible food. We got rubber band like beef calederata, and the waiter forgot to order our sisig. Disappointing. Many in the menu are not available. Food quality is very far from Stella, a restaurant owned by the same group of companies.

Look, this is a nice cafe, in a great location beside then Ayala Museum and I did enjoy the cake. I did find, general speaking, hard to find a great coffee. Having asked for a flat white coffee and explained to a staff member what it was, I still got a cappuccino and that was very bitter in taste. However,... More

Everyday, couldn't resist but to have lunch, merienda and dinner at this special cafe. The cafe is very clean, every server is graciously attentive and the Filipino theme dishes offered are so balanced and beautifully presented!

Had lunch here twice recently. The restaurant is right opposite the Ayala Museum. Cool, modern decor, air-conditioned interior with tree-shaded tables outside. Attentive and friendly staff. Fresh spring rolls with coriander chicken and an understated peanut sauce were generously filled and tasty. Crab balls were quite substantial, but with the lightest crumb coating, ginger and Asian slaw. Riblets were really... More

Each time I am in the area, I always make M Cafe a stop especially for lunch. I recommend you make a reservation as the place really gets full. The food is excellent, Fushion Filipino and Asian. The staff friendly and polite. It is ideal for business meetings.

I like to sit outside where the jazz plays. Vince Lahorre and the guys do a great job. Everything from Henri Mancini Pink Panther theme to Louis Armstrong. Fantastic and free of charge! I later met up with him at The Rockwell Mall and felt I should buy him lunch. A very humble guy and great ambassador for The Philippines!... More

We were looking for a decent restaurant that was not located inside a mall while visiting Manila/Makati and stumbled upon this restaurant in the courtyard of the museum. The food was decent and the wine was good. But most importantly, it had a good atmosphere with outdoor seating in the evenings including an outdoor bar which seems to be a... More

Great food & service! However we ordered a share set costing 550 pp but the portions were tiny. There are more managers than waiters
