This is our favorite Filipino restaurant. For our comfort food, we usually order the Bangus belly, munggo and tortang talong, for healthy eating we prefer fish and veggie dishes. The best Filipino resto in Manila with so many choices of Filipino dishes, for desserts and...meryenda. Great ambiance, fast service and friendly staff, nice comfort room. Overall, perfect dining resto for couple, family and balikbayan who miss Filipino food.More

I visited this restaurant in the afternoon on June 25, 2018 for the very first time together with my family and found out that their food is far excellent. The prices are just fair, for the scrumptious food that were served to us. There were...13 of us and gladly I'm saying that we dined in there and not into some other restaurant nearby. We were well attended by the friendly servers, the place was clean and the proper handling handling of food was outstanding. I am highly recommending this restaurant if you are visiting Manila, Philippines.More

It was for a late celebration of my birthday with some friends when i called this resto. Inquired if they do table reservations and they do. We supposed to be dining to another resto nearby but they dont accept table reservations. Given our headcount it...would be difficult to just walk in for it was a payday friday. Food was great in this Resto, a bit pricey yes, but their services is commendable. Staff, waiters and waitresses were all polite, accomodating, helpful, attentive and very pleasant. Over all their service surpassed my expectations. Price versus service, it was still commendable. Taste of foods were all as expected. Their Sansrival taste delicious. Not to sweet and with crunch that makes your every bite more exciting and wants for more. Re Consider your price for your cochinillo good for 2 to 3 that cost 1500. It might be a hit if not that expensive. 🤔More

A friend brought me here for lunch. It was a pleasant surprise for me to discover another good Filipino restaurant in town. We tried their famous chicken and pork adobo, calamaris and fried cat fish with buro. Food were nicely presented and were indeed delicious....Service was fast and friendly with servers bearing native Filipino names in their name plates. Prices are reasonable. I paid a thousand pesos for two of us dining with good desserts at the end. Place is huge but becomes crowded during lunch. Toilets were very clean. Parking is not a problem. There is a paid parking area just in front of the restaurant.More

One awesome Filipino restaurant. First time to dine here and I instantly loved it. We started off with thin slices of crispy lechon kawali with choices of liver sauce and soy sauce. Kilawin was also a good way to start our lunch. Those were called...Bagumbayan Lechon and Kinilaw ni Custodio respectively. Then we segued to the following which I strongly recommend: - Tinapa ni Tiburcio (triangular small pies of minced tinapa fish) - Fried plapla (Ka Plaridel) - Dinuguan (Corregidor) - Sinigang Pompano (Sigang Mestizo) - Kangkong - White rice A good pairing is a pitcher of refreshing melon juice. Hints of Filipino culture and history to make the food more appetizing. Perfect concept. Will be back here for sure.More

This restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel, The Henry, It was a short taxi ride to it. It was in a very nice shopping center with a number of other restaurants. Many Philippine families were there. The menu was extensive. We especially loved the...fried beef strips and the octopus with the secret sauce. The menu shows pictures of all the dishes which is very helpful in choosing what to eat. It is not expensive. We will definitely return. It is a chain of restaurants so I believe the other locations should be equally good.More

Crisostomo is one of our fave resto in fact in our 4 days in Manila, we visited 2 branches of Crisostomo. One in Resorts World in Pasay and their beautiful, vintage place in Bluebay walk . We loved their twice cooked adobo, crispy pata ,...bulalo, sinigang na lechon and many more. This resto is very consistent in their theme from the name “Crisostomo” which is very historical, to their menu , that are all named in Filipino, to the ambiance of their place. They also sell preserved , bottled “ tuyo “ and other food stuff.More
