We went to Howzat with some hesitation after reading the bad reviews . But I can tell you I was really pleasantly surprised, firstly the service was fast and very friendly with cold beer. We waited for the dinner which was steak sandwich but it was cooked really fresh with salad and fries. There were some people smoking inside but it has a high ceiling and a number of air con units no issue there either. Toilet was supposed to be a nightmare according to others but again bar was full and no real issue. Can't complain at all and good variety of import goods from canned, jarred and deli foods. I'll be back for sure.

This is a plain ,ordinary simple place with good service and good tasty food. The food is a mixture of American, British and local. It offers a good choice including all day breakfast.
it was owned by a Norwegian guy a few years ago but I think its now a Brit. The customers are mainly ex pat Europeans and Americans. and the atmosphere is good.
The waitresses are well trained and friendly. This is NOT a girly bar.
lots of big TVs showing sport which is a bit distracting but OK when something interesting is going on.

If you like ice cold beer and sports this place rocks. 12 screens or more with any sport! They also have a huge menu with any type of food you could imagine... cooked well with good imported ingredients. I had a few days left in the city alone and ate here every night and was not lonely.

decided to try this place based upon recommendations on the makati forum...DO NOT GO NEAR this place...and here is why
1. OVERPRICED
2 slow paced service even on a slow night....i went back several times to observe before i wrote this review
3. the outside bbq is manned by an untrained person that is NOT a cook ,
4. food is of LOW QUALITY with no mimimum standards
maybe it was just a bad night. do you really want to chance it?

Howzat is popular with the fat chain-smoking expatriate crowd

Pros:

Ice cold beer

Food is average, can be slow service, and the Friday 'eat all you can' Curry Buffet Lunch is excellent

Cons:

Smoking anywhere you go, despite the no smoking signs

TV screens every available wall space, showing every sport you can imagine

Toilet is disgusting, this place gets really busy, and has ONE men's urinal and ONE men's sit down toilet in same stall. Be warned - if the toilet lid is down DO NOT lift it, the sit down toilet is almost permanently blocked, filthy

Great place for fat men who enjoy the girlie scene nearby

A good place to avoid
