Tapas were very dissapointing the Octopus salad (which only consisted of tons of garlic and some slized octopus) and the Prawns were drowning in oil but completely flavorless. The prawns had black spots and when peeling them half of their body sticked to the shell - strong signs of very inferior product quality. The seafood paella was overcooked and the... More

A rather, but cozy restaurant specializing in Spanish dishes, such as tapas, paella, etc. although not all dishes are really Spanish. One typical dessert is missing: crema catalana. They have leche flan instead which is a typical Filipino dish. Try the tapas, e.g. the mejillones (clams) with garlic, they are delicious.

Detotiated. The one in makati is much better. Ambience became poor and service was anything else than before. Food also detoriated a lot.. a pity. Dont eat paella, overcooked and almost burnt. The paella in makati was very good.

Really good Spanish restaurant in Manila. The tapas, chorizo, and garlic mushroom are really good. The paella is also a must-try. Very commendable!

Ambiance is quite cozy despite the place being a bit old and rustic. Service is good and a good place to have a relaxing dinner.

Casa Armas is a great Spanish Restaurant in Manila. If you are hankering for authentic Spanish paella and tapas with good Spanish wine in this corner of the world, it is one of the top places to go. Always great in food and service. The ambiance is great too. Just be prepared to pay more. Cheers!

It is relaxing and this restaurant attracts both travelers and locals. We enjoyed tapas and paella. All excellent in the standard of Asia. Wine is also fine. Small complaint is too much garlic. One may ask the chef to reduce the amount.

You wanna try seafood in a Spanish way? Go and visit Casa Armas restaurant. It has several best dishes and I will never eat at Casa Armas without my favorites, Paella Negra, Gambas and their Tapas, Alcachofas.

Its possibly the best tapas ive ever had, i think we had 5 different plates. All excellent but the shrimp (no.1... More

Want a place to wile away an afternoon with great tapas and ambience? Then Casa Aramas in Malate is for you. Tucked away in the older part of town it provides a wonderful place to spend an afternoon sampling very good (sometime variable) tapas while supping on excellent Sangria or wine purchased from a gem of a wine shop just...
