“Always a great time with the BEST staff around”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

I have been coming to Heckle and Jeckle for some years now and since I arrived in Dec, 2013, this is the first time I have been to the new location. This venue is like night and day compared to the old location which is only 1 few blocks away. It is very well lit, clean and once again, you can not beat the service. I have known most of the people that have worked in here over the years and there is a reason turnover is low.
They have two menus, one being international fare. I have eaten here a number of times and I usually have the international menu. Last meal I had was the vindaloos which was very nice.
They usually have a blues band on Wednesdays, Fridays is more classic rock. Saturday nights is resereved for football as all the games are live. If you are a sports fanatic this is the place to go as there are big screen TVs everywhere. Any major sporting event from around the world is shown here.

“Nice place for a drink!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I popped in for a drink at this bar with a friend after having some lovely street tacos at El Chupacabra Mexican Restaurant which is located across the road.

This is their new premises which is a lot better than the last premises. Its more spacious and modern. Its an expat sports bar with pool tables.

Whilst having a drink I actually met the owner a Dutchman called Jerry who has been living in the Philippines for the last 17 years.He married a Filipina. He explained how he started with humble beginnings in a small place and has now expanded to this nice new premise in Felipe St Makati just off Polaris St.

Didnt have a meal here but found the ambiance good and the bar staff very friendly. Would definitely love to return and perhaps try their menu.

P.S. surprised why the last reviwer posted a negative review 3-4 years later. This in fact breaches Tripadvisor Guidelines and he perhaps has some sort of a hidden agenda!

“Nice place for a good time”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

It's a good place to hang out, drink some beer, play some pool and eat some snacks. The waiters are warm and courteous. Expect a lot of small talk from the waiters if you are a regular, else you will not be bothered until you ask so.

The place is not upmarket, nor does it advertise so. Don't get bothered if you see a lot of customers greeting each other and hanging out together at the same table - they are the regulars. A not too expensive place but do not keep high expectations. They serve what you pay for.

“Heckle and Jeckle”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

A sports bar with a lot of TVs for viewing top sports live. I arrived early at 4;20 for the widows sons meeting at 6pm since I dont know the place. Got to be there on time since it is raining quite hard and some street may flood. Food is good. Staff are pleasing. Most customers are foreigners and owners of big bikes. Nice joint you got here Bro.
