Cafe Adriatico is fronting the Remedios Circle of the Bohemian district of Malate, where one can quietly enjoy the scene of children playing and adults strolling. The food is typical Filipino with a few creative twists amid antique furniture and old photos of Filipino families. I think it is best to call and reserve whether solo or a small group... More

This place is always busy and serves a wide range of customers, local and foreigners alike. Has a good menu with a variety of local and international dishes, all of which are well presented and tasty. Has a very nice and friendly atmosphere.

I lived across the street from Cafe Adriatico in Malate for 3 years. I ate there frequently and always found the food and service to be perfect. You can see the cooks right in front of you making your meal. There is a smoking section upstairs and if you have room left have a piece of cake. Whenever you are... More

So I walk by Cafe Adriatico this morning. It's open and I ask the guard about their coffee, he replies "You want coffee? Come in." So I ask the waitress who gives me a menu with food but no coffee prices how much the coffee is. She says "Oh its free if you order." Now I've already had a Siopao... More

We picked it on coincidence. Food quality ( I had the steak with peppercorns sauce ) was alright. Fresh and tender meat. Cocktails can be improved. Service was very friendly. All in all a good experience.

I'm not a fan of Philippino food. While this is very much a traditional PP restaurant it does offer non-PP options. I go for "Salad Premier" any time. Staff is very professional. Good location. Parking available

This place is well worth a visit! It's a very cozy and comfy dining room, feels like a nice European cafe. The staff are very friendly. The food is prepared quickly and perfectly. One of the best places I've eaten in the Philippines.
