I visited as part of a group of academics and not only ate good food, but we entertained wit traditional dances. The owner, Barbara, was charming and invited us all to coffee and desert afterwards. I strongly recommend.

We enjoyed a fine example of Filippino food after having taken a walking tour of Intramuros. There was a wide assortment of food, but some of it was cold and some serving platters were almost empty. It seems they could have had someone stationed there...More
