I have been visiting this lovely friendly cafe since 1980, shortly after they opened, and always enjoyed my time there. Food is freshly prepared, from high quality ingregients, nicely presented. Staff are friendly and professional. Prices very reasonable. Mixed crowd of locals and ex-pats. Good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just drinks and a late night snack. Sit outside to... More

There was a time that Cafe Adriatico was the place to be. It had good ambience, great food and a location to beat. That was in the 1980s. I have not been to the place in decades. Maybe it's just me or the joint seems smaller to me now. The interior still keeps the rustic flavor it's been known for;... More

This resataurant is three blocks away from the place I am staying. A must try food spot. Great food, comfortable experience and accomodating staff. They offer a wide variety of Filipino foods. Thumbs up for the "Binukadkad na pla-pla". You guys just set the standards of my fish taste.

upon looking at the facade and the surroundings of the restaurant one would feel the history and the beauty of old manila. The staff was not that great for the restaurant is slightly packed and it was hard to call for assistance. But over all the experience was great.

Visited late Tuesday evening, mostly locals there, which was a bit surprising, given its not the cheap end of Manila, so we figured out it must be good place. Nice pub-like interior- didn't notice that elsewhere in Manila. I didn't like it's allowed to smoke on the 2nd floor where the bar is, but it wasn't packed, so it was... More

This place has been around for a while and it is cozy and has that old times feel. The food is decent with good sized portions. A little pricey.

My comments on the food: - Chorizo - just okay - Gambas - It didn't taste the same. Shrimp was smaller than the last time - Cesar's Salad - just okay - French Onion Soup - the cheese was kinda different but the waiter gladly replaced it with a new one. The second one was better. - Salpicao - just... More
