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.

I've been retreating and back again to Cafe Adriatico for some numerous years as of now. The sustenance is constantly steady and truly can't turn out badly while picking this restaurant.

We were caught in heavy rains on a cold rainy morning and ended up having breakfast in this favorite evening spot for us. We used to come here when traffic wasn't so bad for miss de gallo breakfast. In this area of Manila there are a number of 24 hour restaurants and although Cafe Adriatico isn't one of them, it's... More

Opened in 1979, Cafe Adriatico is one of the best restaurants in the Philippines. There is the ambience/decor which takes you back to the past. The staff service is impeccable. And the food is wonderful. My favorites include Palabok, Bibingka, and the Spanish classic callos. Or you can just order coffee and watch time..and the people pass you by.

Classic place, i think it never faded but some just forgot about how great this place is. The same place never redecorated just furnished and maintains its style. The pioneer restaurant of LJC group. I clearly remember this place on Andrew E song. Hahaha. My friends and I very eager to look for this place have asked about 3-4 people... More

It's a true shame that this restaurants wait staff is so subpar. The food was absolute delicious. I ordered the meatloaf dish and was floored by the perfect portion size, good plating and whirlwind of delectable flavors. My boyfriend ordered the tripe dish and was equally as satisfied. However, our drinks came out long after our entrees, and two of... More
