This is a great place for a meet up with friends as they have private function rooms on the second floor. The dishes they offer are wide and varied. The menu also includes the dishes that the namesake (General Carlos P. Romulo) had as favourites.

So highschool has been eons ago for me, and to get to spend time with good highschool friends is a blessing. We decided to try Romulo's Cafe based on the suggestion of my ex as she always had a thing for old Filipino anything or anything that would be representative of Filipino culture. The place was in Makati along Jupiter... More

Nice and cozy place with Valet parking. They served good Filipino dishes, each one was good to share for several people who want to sample the menu. For 3 adults and 2 kids we ordered the Laing, Bistek Tagalog, Liempo, Pandan Rice, Honey Glazed Spare Ribs, Chicken Adobo sa Gata and Mango Shakes. The Bistek had fantastic sauce but I... More

We were about 28 people and had a room to ourselves. The food is good, so is the service. They were able to adjust their menus to vegetarian for some of us. A bit pricey.

Recommended to visit the cafe because I was a history buff. Food is good, service can be a little more attentive. Prices are reasonable. Will probably return

We reserve the place for 4 hours for 22 people to hold our annual family reunion. We were placed in the Yellow Room... air-conditioned, with enough sitting for 25 people. Our waiter was attentive to our needs and the service was great! They have a great selection of food to choose from and tastes great! Great selection of desserts too... More

I know a little bit of my way in the kitchen and I am confident that I can definitely replicate their menu. All I can say is that their food taste just like your regular "lutong bahay". Nothing really exceptional or special except maybe for the ambiance. They have nice interiors with a lot of curated pictures of Carlos P.... More

I noticed some mosquitoes flying and was so afraid to be bitten already, then I felt a weird feeling in my legs, when I touched it, it was a large cockroach crawling. I didn't shout cuz I don't wanna make a scene. I told the waiter to remove the cockroach as it might crawl to another person again. The waiter... More
