Afriques is a quaint little restaurant in Smallville complex. The restaurant is pleasant enough and the staff are nice too. The meals aren't exactly cheap, but the food is not as good as you would expect for the price you pay.

Afriques italian restaurant in smallville especially " upstairs " is just amazing -- The platter serving taste good, penne pasta is even better after our loveteam drama overlooking esplanade. Beer is also served with excellent food menu. Cheers!

This is our go-to place for pasta and ribs in Iloilo City. The service is good, nothing fancy. However, it's bang for the buck considering that they have a nice big serving for their ribs and the price is not too expensive.

Afriques have good pastas on their menu. They have delicious pastas though the price is not a student budget meal. I havent been able to check on their other menus but the place is great and the ambiance is quite classical. Good staff accomodation and...good for gatherings. 😁More

We didn't like the restaurant. It was very empty and they even could not make a mange shake. Food was not good at all. I will not come again.

There is nothing African about this horrible food joint. .... The worst and coldest nachos I've ever eaten and the so called bbq hamburger was Luke warm at best, tasteless and only could taste the awful sweet mayonnaise.... The only saving grace was the baby...back ribs which were tasty, served hot and morish.....This place needs serious attention.More

Heard so much about this place from locals had to try. Wish we didnt. Its NOT an italion resto but a pinoy pasta place with typical sugar sweet sauces and horrid cheese of some sorts. We shared 2 pasta dishes and pizza. It was all...horrible. Pizza at mo2 way better. Dining room smelled aweful. Beer warm and offered ice cubes which we loath. Service nonexistent. We left more food than we ate and shocked the server when we said we dont want it to go. We walked to mo2 had the special pizza and cold beers and was much better. If you are a westerner this place is not for you. Its a 3rd world failed attempt. Sad.More

We eat here several times and we usually ordered pasta and pizza and some yummy nachos. The baby back ribs and spicy buffalo wings are worth a try. The food is superb, price is affordable. We just had some mixed up and delayed orders tho,...waiters should listen very well to what the customers are saying. Other than that, it's a good restaurant.More

We ordered the Afrique's special pizza and the penne with italian sausage but both came a bit too sweet - the sauce wasn't what we expected it to taste like...
