“Good place for a foreigner to approach the Philipino kitchen”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I was in this restaurant for my first lunch upon arrival in Manila, and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of dishes in the menu. The place is clean and the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed.
Being a seafood lover, I appreciated their appetizer (baby squid sauteed with garlic) as well as a typical Pinoy plate : the Binukadkad na crispy plapla (a deep fried tilapia, open up to show his fillets as if it was a butterfly).
The meal was quite reasonably priced (at least based on equuivalent European prices) and the service quite courteous
And again I went there for a meal, 42 days later,the day before leaving Manila

“I got very sick!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Ate there last evening; upon the waiters suggestion, I had the baby squid and the garlic rice. The food was very mediocre, with the garlic completely overwhelming it and the overall feeling being they were clubbing you with oil and garlic. I also had bottled water. I walked back to my hotel, and by 45 minutes after eating, my stomach was queasy... Which I hoped was just too much of the heavy seasoning. Within an hour I was vomiting and then came the diarrhea.... All night.

I have no doubt whatsoever that this place made me sick.

“A restaurant every Filipino could be proud of”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

From the restaurant interiors to the excellent food (taste and presentation) - it is a restaurant every Filipino could be proud of. It is a great place to bring friends, especially friends from overseas, as most of the food served is in the tradition of Filipino cuisine. Highlight of the Menu for me are: Crispy Tadyang D' Original, Sugpo sa Aligue, Oxtail Kare Kare. And not to be missed is their music!

“Great Filipino Food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Bistro Remedios offers a great choice of Filipino food which you will not ordinarily find in other restaurant. The must try is caldereta, plapla binalot sa gata at laing.
