We had the ff: wild mushroom soup, mango arugula salad, basil Lemonade shake, beef kebab and vongole.
I was just supposed to have water but when I tried my husband's basil lemonade, I wanted to finish it right away so I got one for myself too. It was so good! Next time we go back, I will make sure to order an extra glass for take away. While waiting for our orders, I stood up and walk around then I saw their buffet of soup and salad. You make your own salad & they weigh it (php100/gram). An order comes with soup. When I checked out what kind of soup they had, our server approached me and asked if I wanted to try it- he said he'll give it for free. I said why not. It was very good I would have gladly paid for it. They used fresh wild mushroom. Mango arugula salad was also very good I ended up buying a big pack of arugula and vinaigrette dressing at their store.
We were happy with our main dishes too. I was surprised with the beef kebab meal. I initially warned my husband about ordering it as it might have been a safer choice to get their pasta dish but he said he was craving for kebabs. I'm glad I didn't insist on him getting pasta because rice and beef tasted very good- rich & authentic. My pasta was cooked al dente too. It had generous serving of clams. I took home half of the pasta though as it can feed 2 not too hungry individual.
So we loved the food- but why the 4 stars? The ambiance. It felt cold. They should improve on the lighting. It's nice that they used antique furniture, the aparador with huge mirrors are great but the poor lighting gives an unwelcoming feel. Maybe if it felt more homey, moving to another place for coffee & dessert would not have been an option for us too.
