Located close to the Ayala Museum (a must-see), the Museum Cafe offers a good variety of international as well as Filipino dishes and desserts. Nice decor and friendly staff.

We tried fried kang kong and some mango and avocado dessert. They were all tasty. Service was good and the place was pleasant.

Brought guests from the UK for dinner and we were only given one menu to share. The waiters were busy cleaning tables to prepare for closing when it was only 830 pm on a Sunday. Towards the middle they left us alone and we had to search for them just to get needs met. It was embarassing. The good thing... More

What I loved in this resto was: first, the location; so geographically located & easy to find, just beside GB chapel & GB4. Second, the ambience, esp. at night. I brought my balikbayan friends & we really had a cozy chat over dinner. The place is not crowded & lighting is just right. Lastly, I loved the food. I asked... More

It used to be a big place. They took away some of the veg food, the drinks went down- it's just not what it was. They need to reinvent themselves.

For first-timers who sampled Filipino food here, I am sorry for you. This is not the place to introduce you to an otherwise very colorful, flavorful and downright tasty Filipino cuisine. Their food was mediocre at best. We ordered their Filipino set -- rice, pinakbet, grilled liempo, adobong pusit and lumpia. We ate because we were hungry but didn't enjoy... More

Many times I've been to this restaurant, especially when I have to meet people in Makati - it's an easy place to find right at the corner of Makati ave. and De La Rosa St., both important through ways. The service is always impeccable and the atmosphere very friendly - whether or not you want to partake of the night... More

Had the beef congee slow cooked in anise with a side dimsum of shark's fin dumplings...so delicious! The presentation was classy and the ambiance was very inviting. We've been here before and will come back! They open at 8:00 am contrary to what is posted elsewhere.

I like eating dinner here. Its fairly quiet from the restaurant row in GB5. The menu is quiet good and has a good selection of wine as well. The service is top notch and doesn't require gimmicks to get you to sit down. I've had lunch and dinner here and haven't been disappointed yet.

We ordered breakfast here as it was the only place we could find open for breakfast nearby. We were so glad we stopped here. The decor is modern and fresh with great ambient music. The waiting staff were very well presented and provided excellent service. The food choices are great with both local and Western options offered. The drinks selection... More
