Great food, great service, the only place to go in my opinion. Homemade pasta, Mexican food is to die for. If you are in the area you should visit.

I returned to the Philippines in January of 2024 as you do yearly. Vacation there means a return to Myleen's Cafe which is always a treat! I have spent a lot of time going to many of the restaurants in the Olongapo area and specifically...the Barreto beach area and have found a few good restaurant's there. My favorite is Myleen's Cafe! I have yet to have a dish there that I didn't like. I recently had the chicken parm and it was amazing! I am usually a Mexican food eater at that location and decided to try some of the other menu items and found all of them excellent. I had a majority of the Filipino dishes and found the sisig amazing and my favorite. I also enjoyed all of the Italian food that I tried on menu. I had breakfast there most mornings and found the skillets are both ample and taste great! I will say there are some good restaurants in the area but I cant say the consistency is there in quality and taste as it is with Myleens Cafe. They also make their on sauces (Roja and Verde) and they are great! The wait staff is courteous and makes your experience very enjoyable!More

Each serving can be shared with a person but once you taste it, you don't want to share! Hahahaha! Since the food is freshly made, especially the pizza, please expect around 20 -30 minutes waiting time.

Been about 2 years since my last visit. I said back then that the next time i go I will be trying the much talked about Mexican menu. I walked in and low and behold Robert, the owner, and his wife, the master chef, were...sitting at the table closest to the kitchen. Like before i reintroduced myself and asked for his recommendation for Mexican. They suggested a few dishes and i chose the Birria Taco Plate. I asked about a soup recommendation and he suggested the 15 bean soup. Being a bit of a foodie (aren't we all) we chatted about Barretto and Subic restaurants. it was great conversation and i now know a few more places to hit up. During our conversation i noticed the restaurant filled up quickly. The soup came and it was very hardy and delicious. An excellent appetizer. The beef tacos that followed were cooked to perfection and bursting with flavor. The side dishes of refried beans and rice were a great compliment as was the consume and home made Mexican sauces. A 5 star dinner and experience.. And by the way the service was as good as the food.More

Another great family dinner. The kids shared the pork steak. I enjoyed the Penne Arrabbiata. Great flavor with some heat to it. My wife tried to finish the chicken parm but only got half way finished when the pizza came out. Best pizza in Barretto...for sure. Service was excellent as usual. Besides the food at Myleens, I like the fact that I can enjoy my meal in a quiet environment. The other night a very rude lady was asked by the waitress and then the owner to turn down her cell phone as she was ruining dinner for everyone there. She was having none of it and not only refused to turn down her phone, she was rude and belligerent to everyone. As she was leaving, the owner explained nicely to her that she is welcome to come back but please respect the other customers and not play loud videos. She said she wasn't coming back and she would post about her "horrible experience". Thank You to the owner for trying keep her from ruining everyone else's dinner experience.More
