The bistro is a cozy place to hang out with friends for drinks, billiards and karaoke singing. Food is average, so is the service.

What a fantastic find, thanks to trip advisor. Completely unique with Dakota technical drawings on the wall paper, tastefully themed lights and great bar.

My friends and I tried their Curry Night one Thursday. I ordered Mixed Seafood Curry while the others had beef... serving size was average for the price of P449 which came with 3 bottles of San Miguel. Curry was quite lacking in flavor. Ambiance is nice but the place needs to have more people. I miss this place when it... More

Nicely decorated and a great menu at reasonable prices. They have a full bar and pool table. It's a bit small but not tiny. It's usually quiet at Dakota but a fun group could turn things around. I recommend a try for at least one drink or two.

The Dakota has a western menu, the food is excellent, prepared and served to a very high standard. The bar does special curry nights and Sunday roasts; I had the cottage pie - excellent.
