You know the place is good when it's crowded even on a week night. Kapampangans are known for being excellent cooks and this place had great food. It's a fun atmosphere, especially for a large group.

We are talking about NATIVE Filipino Food. So they have sinigang, adobo, sisig, etc. Taste is good but not exactly something you will come back for. Serving is enough but not big. Price is good enough. Place is not that pleasing, not that clean.

The food is mediocre at best. Only the private rooms are aircondioned but have a minimum charge of 4000 pesos. Then when it comes time to pay, they add an additional 3% for the foreign credit cards. And then there’s the annoyingly loud “native, aboriginal-descended...More

Description
MATAM-IH offers authentic Kapampangan cuisine in a fascinating ambiance of an elegant, classy and modern rendering of our indigenous peoples’ culture, arts and crafts and our Hispanic tradition, with the convenience of high-tech gadgetry. It promises an exciting dining experience not available anywhere else, where the old and the new world meet with stunning impact. MATAM-IH is an Aeta dialect meaning delicious. Their well-trained food attendants are genuine members of the Aeta and Abelling indigenous people of Capas, where the largest concentration of the Tribe are found. They are also known as “Kulots” with their distinctive curly tresses, eyelashes and golden brown skin. During the day, MATAM-IH presents our Hispanic heritage and indigenous arts and crafts in the form of antique-style wood and steel furniture and decor. At night, the struggle between the old world and the new in terms of decor, lighting and effect seems to abate with no sides winning, but with the same breath-taking effect. The old and the new simply, magically co-exist. The main hall was named after Apu Namalyari who was believed to dwell in Mt. Pinatubo. It is the biggest hall which prides in its unique bird cage chandelier and a giant fish trap called Balisasa, an olden crude but effective fishermen’s implement. To the sides are six safari-type tents named after the major Aeta Sitios of Capas town namely Sitio Manabayukan, Sitio Taliktik, Sitio Yeyang, Sitio Manibukyot, Sitio Tarukan, and Sitio Pilien. There is also a summer veranda which is called the Sitio Kalangitan Cafe which is a cozy hide-away over-looking the entire restaurant and beyond. There are also side recreational amenities like the “Adiu-Adiu” (another Aeta appreciative expression) where one can try out the primitive bow and arrow to hit the target, “Sana” which is a replica of the traditional balon or wishing well and “Dugang” (a Kapampangan term which means wheel of a carabao cart) where you can find an instant answer to any particular question that one can think of.
