It wasn't that expensive for what you get. I had the house specialty, oxtail stew, and it was EXCELLENT!!! Neighborhood a bit dodgy, but better now than a few years ago. Definitely worth the effort to seek out and enjoy.

An old and revered Manila cafe in Malate this cafe is beautifully furnished with an old world atmosphere highlighting Manila at its finest. The food is excellent but very expensive with "service charge" unnecessarily added to an already hefty bill. Still, it is worth a visit just for the ambience and a collection of tasty Filipina and European dishes.

First time back in a long time and glad to see they have maintained their ambience and food quality. The food is short of great but is good enough and consistent with past visits. Still a nice little corner to sit at in the Malate area except that we couldn't get the wifi to work.

Visit this place when in Manila and see how the whole restaurant craze took off. Its been there for years, when we were in Manila maybe 30 years ago. Food is good, atmosphere great and people watching unparalleled!

The cozy ambience and turn-of-the-century interiors at Cafe Adriatico set the mood for a romantic dinner or a cozy tete-a-tete. The food is quite good, although some dishes are just average. The hot chocolate is a must-try, as well as the mango crepe. The cakes are overly sweet so choose something else for dessert.
