I had ordered a veggie burger which was very delicious. I liked also that you could order additional ingredients too. The staff was very friendly and we liked the atmosphere. We can recommend this restaurant, espacially if you look for vegetarian menus.

My special lady friend and I went for dinner on a recent Saturday night. They had a live band taking requests and the owner Lara was super friendly and invited us to hang out with her group. The burger was the best I've had in...the Philippines and the proper fries were super crispy! The night spent swapping stories over tap beers and shooters was a highlight of our time in Dauin! Much love Finbar :)More

Finbar transformed a house into a chill bar where you can relax and spend time with family and friends. Their menu has various offerings that will surely cater everyone. They have promos all throughout the week and I will suggest ordering their Barkada deals as...great way to enjoy their food with beer. Their ribs tastle like bbq and adobo mixed together. Their burger is juicy and tastes like popular burger joints @ Manila. We tried their Tequila Mango Mansi which is their homemade infused spirits. It takes away the need to have lemon and salt when drinking tequila. Their alcohol is fairly priced and a must try. The wings, burger, ribs, tortilla, and salad are worth it and it makes sense why this is #1 and has been awarded as wellMore

I've been to Finbar a few times and their food is excellent, the live music is great and the atmosphere is really nice. Also, they are dog friendly, which was super helpful the last time I was there, as I had just adopted a dog...and didn't want to leave her alone.More

There's some excellent reviews for this place and I admit I only dropped by for a beer, but that was so disappointing. I tried their draft IPA. When I was in the UK, that was what I used to drink, so I thought I'd try...theirs. It was really awful. I attach two photos, one of what IPA should look like and the other is theirs, the cloudy orange liquid. It even tasted worse than it looked. I tried hard to persevere with it but gave up, what you see in the glass is what I left. I asked the waitress if the IPA was always like that and she said "yes".More
