A good place to get out the noise and dust of the Ortigas area. Cafe and small restaurant are good for a relaxing meal. for example Wild Flour.

The Podium is a step up in class from the other nearby large malls. They don't have a massive collection of outlets, but make up for it with a nice and roomy layout. The restaurants on the ground floor do have very little space inside,...More

Specifically in The Podium? Wildflour is a good restaurant. If you're looking for more kid friendly the best place is probably at the mega mall a few blocks away.
