“consistent, reliable, a little boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

the food is decent and consistent but its popularity is mainly due to its location and the lack of other more exciting offerings around.

the food is fine -- pasta with pesto and shrimp, spaghetti and meatballs, deli sandwiches, etc are all good. the wine selection used to be alright but they must have changed suppliers recently and prices have gone up. some of the wines are priced at a significant markup compared to what is available in other areas. the wines are not quite restaurant prices but definitely not grocery prices. while some places will give a discount to wines

“homey and stable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

This is a small deli-cafe-wine bar amidst the towering condominia of Makati. And yet it has kept it's homey personality despite the greying shadows of concrete and steel all around. Either my hours are strange or I just pick the right time, I find there are always people, but it is not crowded and I can usually get my favorite table near the electrical outlet to plug in my macbook. At least half the clientele are internetters. The others are serious hasty snackers or wine tasters in the evenings, and their late closing at 10 PM allows a late snack--sandwich, pasta or wine and cheese. I did the latter with 2 friends and went through 4 cheese plates and 3 bottles of wine! Most enjoyable. Otherwise, it is a quick sandwich or a spaghetti meatballs and off to another rvd. Personnel are friendly and receptive, that's why I say it's homey in this business center neighborhood.
