“Nothing spectacular”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Went to Chocolate Kiss on a Sunday afternoon after a walk around the campus. The place looked tired and dirty. The cakes would have looked delectable if not for the fact that you can see mosquitos around..also don't know why the cake wasn't in refrigerated display case..the sandwich I had was ok. Nothing spectacular

“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Chocolate Kiss is one of the family's favorite places to eat inside UP campus.
Our regular orders usually include Beef Salpicao, Callos Madrilena, and Chicken Tenders. They go well with their bottom-less iced tea made from tea bags and not the powdered type. It's served unsweetened with a mini pitcher of syrup for you to sweeten according to your preference. Artificial sweeteners available upon request. Monitor your intake of iced tea so you don't take in a lot of caffeine, especially for children.
For dessert, nothing beats their Sansrival. I used to enjoy their sliced servings but now, they make small round cakes for individual orders (too much butter and not so much wafers). It is best paired coffee (I take mine black) that comes with a small cookie
Prices here are not cheap but not too expensive. Food portions are good for one person.
Food servers are attentive and can give suggestions upon request.
It's best to come early or make reservations since they're usually full at peak times (lunch and dinner).
Note that this restaurant has a ground floor and a second floor (in the same building, but quite far from each other) so specify which one going to if you are meeting other people who are not familiar with this place.

“Feels good to be back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

Chocolate kiss has been our usual dining place back in the days when we were still studying in diliman, so naturally everytime we come back and visit the campus, its always our choice for lunch or dinner. Nothing has changed much from the restaurant, it is still the same quite and relaxing place inside the Bahay ng Alumni building. Food is still as good as ever. My favorite hickory spare ribs is still a best seller. And of course one cannot leve without having a bite or slice of their wide selection of sweet treats. Very reasonably priced i didnt see much difference from their prices back then to what it is now.

“Best Iced Tea in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

I love the iced tea at Chocolate Kiss. You get to customize the taste according to your palate. The food is good and affordable. And most especially the place is perfect to spend with your loved ones because of the privacy. You can chitchat your whole afternoon here! :)

What i like about this hotel is their cakes... I love their devils cake.. price is reasonable for foods if you are dining out with friends and family this is a good place to stay..their staff is friendly. the branch that I visit is the one at roces maybe its better if they going to expand their place because their food is really good...my favorite here is their blueberry cheesecake..one of the best.
