“Crowded at Mealtimes but Worth the Wait”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Not to be missed are the pasta dishes and their luscious cakes. The iced tea is redolent of the Butterfly Iced Tea of the 70s and they use local lemon, calamansi. The syrup comes separately so one can actually mix the quantity into the juice to his liking and taste. Thoughtfully, the resto even has try-out sizes of its cakes, each chunk large enough to be shared by two diet conscious diners. The carrot cake is a bit dry but the chocolate offers are to die for. Never come between 1130 and 1 as the place can be packed and service, a tad slow.

“It's a must when in U.P.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Went here last Saturday with colleagues after we watched a play. I had the Kiss Club which is really good. Service is great. Staff is attentive. Restaurant is located near the Alumni hall. Chocolate Kiss also offers different cakes and what I like about this restaurant is their Bottomless Iced tea.

“A University Favorite Hang Out”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Chocolate Kiss is the only restaurant within the campus of the University of the Philippines for many years since no commercial building is located with the grounds of the academic campus. It is located at the Bahay ng Alumni and is accessible thru a jeepney ride of IKOT that brings students and visitors a quick tour around the entire campus. The restaurant is located at the ground floor and at the second floor. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will have a hard time finding a seat since they serve delicious meals. From light to heavy eaters, you can always find something in their menu. Dessert is also something to look forward too since their cakes and pies are mouth watering..from carrot cake, apple cake, chocolate devils cake ...a wide assortment indeed. The crowd is an interesting one since the milieu includes professionals, working people, students on a tight budget and the barkadas who wants to chat for hours.

The parking space outside Bahay ng Alumni is also quite convenient and you can easily find a spot to park. Chocolate Kiss is one of my favorite hangout joints...good food...at a good price and ideal location....away from the hustle and bustle of city centers.
