This place is sort of an what do you call as ancestral home converted into a casual restaurant . No strict attire requirements . Fine ambiance . Nice decors . The place being inside the Malacanang compound made it unique . So be wary of military or political personnel that could be having meals there. No parking area but they... More

We visited the place with some guests which work at Malacanan. We arrived at lunch time, and the most of the dishes we wanted to order was out of stock! Then we wanted to order their Sole Fillet Dish, and the waiter only told us when one of our guest ask what kind of fish is the "SOLE" that this... More

Casa Roces is situated just across the Malacanan Palace. If you are in the San Miguel area this restaurant is worth a visit. This restaurant has won awards over the years so this speaks for itself. Reservations might be a good idea as when I visited, the place was packed full. It opens for breakfast and on to lunch and... More

The ambiance is better than the food! Not everything is good so you have to choose from the menu carefully. The salmon wellington was dry & bland. The mushroom fritters is a good way to start. The paella valencia & lechon paksiw de conchinillo are just okay. the Lengua melts in your mouth. The malacanan souffle is sweet with a... More

Actually, this is our favorite restaurant near our place. Not accessible due to its location (inside Malacanang) but the choices of food and taste, also the ambiance and service...really superb! The bacon, roasted chicken and even the smores, my kids really loved it!

It started well with the onion soup. I eagerly finished it to move on to the entree, lechon paksiw cochinillo, and was surprised by how tough the meat was. It had a twist as it was served with a mango salsa that i thought was distracting but this and the fact that the meat was tough made this trip a... More

I say food needs improvvement not because it is really in poor taste my probably lacks flavor. Again this review is subjective it is according to my opinion regarding my take to food. But I must say that this is a very private area where you can really feel you are exclusive though dining with other people but you won't... More

Located just outside Malacanang Palace, it is a popular venue for business lunches fir government officials. It can get very busy so if your time is limited, book in advance. Good ambience and knowledgeable and helpful staff. My companion and I both found the food to be very well cooked and beautifully presented but foreigners may find the servings a... More

Went here several times and the food is so so. Nothing spectacular but the price is steep. That's what you get when you have a captured market.

Our waiter,Ray, was very nice and courteous. The starters came swiftly as did the rest of the dishes. A couple of orders like the lemonade and chocolate beverage came a bit surprisingly late. This is our second time here after maybe a couple of years. The dishes were well prepared but nothing extraordinary. I had the vegetarian baked eggplant and... More
