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

It used to be a big place. They took away some of the veg food, the drinks went down- it's just not what it was. They need to reinvent themselves.

For first-timers who sampled Filipino food here, I am sorry for you. This is not the place to introduce you to an otherwise very colorful, flavorful and downright tasty Filipino cuisine. Their food was mediocre at best. We ordered their Filipino set -- rice, pinakbet, grilled liempo, adobong pusit and lumpia. We ate because we were hungry but didn't enjoy... More

Many times I've been to this restaurant, especially when I have to meet people in Makati - it's an easy place to find right at the corner of Makati ave. and De La Rosa St., both important through ways. The service is always impeccable and the atmosphere very friendly - whether or not you want to partake of the night... More

Had the beef congee slow cooked in anise with a side dimsum of shark's fin dumplings...so delicious! The presentation was classy and the ambiance was very inviting. We've been here before and will come back! They open at 8:00 am contrary to what is posted elsewhere.

I like eating dinner here. Its fairly quiet from the restaurant row in GB5. The menu is quiet good and has a good selection of wine as well. The service is top notch and doesn't require gimmicks to get you to sit down. I've had lunch and dinner here and haven't been disappointed yet.

We ordered breakfast here as it was the only place we could find open for breakfast nearby. We were so glad we stopped here. The decor is modern and fresh with great ambient music. The waiting staff were very well presented and provided excellent service. The food choices are great with both local and Western options offered. The drinks selection... More

After hours in Ayala Museum I was hungry, ordered pork stew in coconut, but was very disaapointed. It was too much fat and it was only lukewarm, but prices were hot and heavy. Next time: Only espresso for me!

I keep giving this place a chance simply becauseI like being in their restaurant. But their food is quite awful. It's best to have your meal elsewhere and have your coffee or after dinner drinks here.

A good place for drinks and dinner. Start with their happy hour before trying out their Filipio dishes with a twist. We especially enjoyed their group packages for the food which allows you to.try a few of their dishes
