“Live music great”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

The steak is well priced but not good quality. For the price paid - great. Good atmosphere.
Service is the big downside.

“Awesome all round!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Popped in for dinner and drinks and was pleasantly impressed. The food was brilliant though it was a bit slow in coming out but it was fairly busy. The waitresses were very attentive and my glass was never empty for too long. It also had a great atmosphere, we just relaxed for a while after food. I will definitely be eating here again

“Buzzing venue”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Handle Bar & Grill is a truly buzzing venue

I visited on the day that they were taking part in the world-wide celebration of Jack Daniels birth date, so there was lots of Jack Daniel's promo's going on and 3 different bands.

The venue is clearly popular not just with locals but also with people visiting Manila or ex-pats living there.

There is a large space inside, with seats and tables surrounding a stage area, a pool/billiards area and an outside area at the front of the building for smokers and the barbeque/grill area.

The atmosphere is friendly and lively and the bar staff are quite possibly the quickest, to get your drinks order in your hand, that i've ever met anywhere in the world.

Lots of people were ordering food but I'd already eaten so can't comment on the food. However, it looked well presented and the fact that many people were ordering would suggest that it's a popular place to eat as well as socialise
