I was looking forward to the boneless pata after reading the reviews of previous members but it was sold out, as was our next two choices. It took us 4 attempts to find something from the menu which was actually available to eat. Even when we chose the mixed grilled platter the waiter came back to our table about 15... More

Good food and reasonable prices. Had a very nice dinner here a few evenings ago. Ordered mussels in cheese for starters, which looked like large mussels on the menu, but which are quite small with minimal cheese. Notwithstanding, they were extremely tasty. Ordered the ostrich special and cuttlefish for mains and both of these were absolutely delicious. Nice comfortable seating... More

Been in this restaurant a few times and in some other branches because I love their food. They have wide array of choices and in good portions. My personal fave is their hito flakes with mango and bagoong. My parents who are really picky with food even love to dine here, so must be really good.

We had dinner at Mesa in Lanang the night before checking in to the Pearl Farm. Mesa is still one of the best for authentic and honestly cooked pinoy food! The boneless crispy pata was simply phenomenal, perfectly crisp and presented (it does come with bones as garnish...). Cooked right, priced right! We love Mesa!

Very good Philippine food. I loved being there. Nice decoration. The staff could need more training, they should be able to handle every table occupied, but they were too stressed. It's sometimes hard to get a seat but I will go there sometimes again.

If one wants Filipino foods, one won't go wrong with Mesa. There's a variety of choices in their menu, not only entrees but also drinks and desserts. Tables are spacious and there are rooms available for exclusive dining with family and friends. Staff is efficient and food-waits are short. Most of all, the foods are fresh and delicious, the prices... More

I and my family love this restaurant because of its excellent taste of Filipino food with differentiated services and ambience. Food are freshly served with style, price is parallel with other similar restaurants, and staff are well-informed of the menu. Our favorite is the traditional sisig, grilled platter, and pork binagoogan. You have to try their food!
