“The best Spanish resto in Makati”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

My husband and I with our friends from DC had a great time a Terry's. we enjoyed the food so much. We used to travel a lot to Barcelona and Madrid and it was sort of a reminiscence of our food trips or Spain.the only comment I had was that the place was very noisy because there was a group who was very insensitive. They thought they have the who,e place for themselves.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

This lovely tapas style restaurant had a great menu and fabulous wine list. The food was lovely and the bill small! We sat in the upstairs area, which felt like a private hideaway. Lovely service too.

“Unbeatable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

The resto layout maybe a bit awkward and the whole premises stretch up to 3 floors. Ground floor provides little street view, the second none at all. (Havent been to the thisd but it looks like this is always full.) Menu is classic and the taste and presentation back up the entire ambiance of the restaurant. Waitstaff are courteous and not intrusive. It's always a delight when your glass gets refilled even without asking. Wine selection is good. I hope they get to update their menu every now and then.

“hands down, our all time favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

There are countless restaurants in Metro Manila, but this is on top of our list. This Makati branch (the main is also in Makati but on Pasong Tamo Extension which is our favorite) has recently opened a bistro-type floor. If you're looking for Spanish comfort food, this is it. If you're looking for good but reasonably priced wines, this is it. If you're looking for friendly yet unobtrusive service, this is it. JC de Terry has created a masterful restaurant that you keep going back to. Food is prepared in a no-frills open kitchen. Ingredients are authentic with a deli in the Pasong Tamo branch. Everything is good and a few are truly memorable. We keep going back for the super paella. The tapas are old reliables though we wish there was more of a variety as we experienced on our recent trip to Barcelona and Madrid. And yet, despite the unchanging menu, we keep going back. Yes, it is that good. Reasonably priced, too.

“Good satellite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Not as atmospheric as the flagship resto on Pasong Tamo but a good derivation. Under partial renovation just now and sadly missed. The food store on the 3rd floor is a very handy resource and the wine list is comprehensive and fair value.
