I'd call this restaurant the Cracker Barrel of Manila. It is a really popular spot with locals. Food is strictly Filipino. Lots to choose from. Good simple food. There was a short wait for a table as there were several large groups.

I've been an Aristocrat lover ever since I tasted this yummy dessert called HALO HALO. It's so yummmmy...the special ingredients that makes the Halo Halo oh so delicious are beans, langka, sweet saba, gelatin, macapuno and my favorite leche plan and of course to make the HALO HALO complete the ever delightful Ube Ice cream. I always look forward to... More

Order their chicken bbq, plus the good old kare kare, and while waiting for your order to come, order their bibingka! Smooth soft and fluffy and after the good meal top with halo halo for dessert

This is a famous old restaurant. We heard the honey chicken was supposed to be great but it was just OK.. Quite dry... We got shrimp and fish dishes that were very nice but very sweet. Service was good

This review is quite late. I have been visiting The Aristocrat Restaurant since I was a kid. My father used to bring me here for lunch of dinner. I used to frequent this place when I was still working in the Philippines, and every time I find the opportunity to visit this place during my annual vacation, it feels good... More

This is one of the best & oldest restaurant in Manila. The food is so great that you can order whatever you like. Plenty of parking, nice location & good view of the Manila Bay. The food is 100% great and the service as well. Worth trying for travelers who look for a fine restaurant.

this is one of the more popular restaurants known to balikbayans serving local dishes as well as delightful cakes and pastries plus of course their signature dish - the barbecue chicken/pork with their very own dipping sauce. The sauce now comes in a single serve packet (if you ask for extras, you'll have to pay) unlike before when you can... More

Authentic filipino dishes. Forget the diet, go for the crispy pata, kare kare, daing na bangus ... Pastries are also sinful. It is a must when in Manila. I never miss a visit. Looking forward to next visit.
