The staff was too accommodating and very jolly. I cant forget Marlo? If im not mistaken , he was too jolly, keeping his smile and his vibe was such excellent. Especially for us two with my hubby.The Food is fine , delicious and clean. We most of the time coming late and having our last order here, the drinks/ cocktails so so good . I rate it 10. Like it so much🤓

Lig Muh08:27 06/28/23
We are visiting the Phillipines from the U.S.A and the great google reviews brought us here.I genuinely believe the Google reviews are purchased as this place didn't remotely come close to the google reviews.This place is not good, the raw nigiri is of the lowest quality and is barely edible. We weren't going to order nigiri but there is only one way to find out, so we ordered a nigiri sampler.To not completely bash them, the steak donburi was good but it maybe came with like 3-4oz of skirt steak? However I did ask for it to be medium rare and it came out medium/medium well. The chicken donburi was also good, just wish the donburi had more protein and the seaweed was fried like it showed in the pictures.The fried tempura cole slaw had so much mayo that we just left It and the batter in the tempura was a mix of soft and crunchy.To top things off, the service was horrible, we had to ask for everything - literally. Additional water multiple times, additional napkins, more plates, silverware and even the check. I've had better service at a fast food restaurant.The prices don't match the quality of the food or service, what they do match is the swamp water environment as they only have fans inside of this place. In addition to all of this, there is a standard 10% service charge.

Great Location. Good Food. Good Ambience. Perfect for a night out with Friends.Their food is not your typical Japanese Food. Yes it is a fusion food and can’t be compared to an authentic Japanese restaurant. I like the creativity and twists that they put in each dish.Environment: 5/5Waiting: 4/5Taste: 4.5/5Price: 4/5Service: 5/5What I liked:- chargrilled edamameWhat I disliked:- sushi rice a bit over cooked. its softer than usual.

Service was Great! Our server was Jones and Maron and everything was smooth sailing. Food didn’t come out all at once but it was delicious! The view was great too! We were at the Outdoor tables! Definitely must try!

Anne Fernando13:25 07/21/22
Dined here a few times especially during off-peak hours as it was easier to grab a seat and table. So far, good quality of food has been consistent especially for my favorite dishes:✅️ Unagi don✅️ Seared steak bowl✅️ Panko sushi roll✅️ Salmon huevoIkayaki tasted yummy too but not enough to compensate for the 40-minute wait last time. Pollo saltado donburi is also easy to skip -- nothing special and tastes like normal chicken teriyaki.

LaughingKat07:00 06/23/22
First time in this restaurant and it's a famous in BGC, Manila. They serve a nice Japanese foods. However, the ventilation is so bad causing the restaurant smokey and smelly. Our eyes is so uncomfortable and tears keep drop. Unless they fix the ventilation or you manage to get table outside the restaurant.Food: 4 starsEnvironment: 1 starValue for money: 1 star

EJ07:49 05/21/22
The food was delicious and would definitely satisfy your cravings for Japanese food.Great tasting mains as well as a lot of sushi rolls to choose from. I had the Chicken Teriyaki and the soft shell crab rolls which were both delicious and filling. However when I tried my friends smoked salmon rolls, both of us weren't a fan as the cream cheese in it was a questionable add on and did nothing to the overall taste of the sushi.Great location in BGC aswell as the contemporary interior of the restaurant. We sat in their outside seating area which had great ambience and added more to the overall dining experience.Overall great food and staff were friendly Would definitely come back and try their other dishes.

They offer free chips for diners. I ordered spicy tuna roll which unfortunately had very hard crunchy parts that were inedible. I did not expect that and my teeth still hurt because it’s like biting on a rock. The server said spicy tuna roll is the most recommended among their selection but I am not very satisfied. Maybe next time I will try their other sushi options. The restaurant is spacious which is good and they follow the protocol of sitting guests one seat apart. My colleagues ordered their promo for drinks which is 3 drinks for P500. We spent P3500 for sushi, sides, and drinks.Hi Nikkei Nama,I did not expect a response. I’m not sure how to reply to your comment so I’m just editing my review here. My group dined yesterday late afternoon bet 4-6pm 02/11/22. I think the hard bits came from the fried toppings of the tuna sushi roll.

Reg Yangzon14:48 02/06/22
Restaurant Ambience and Service:A very contemporary interior with just the right amount lighting is always something to uphold in a restaurant — and Nikkei definitely delivers on this aspect.The acoustics inside the restaurant is flawed by how every sound from the kitchen bounces off the ceiling onto the diners — it’s not music to the ears especially when you’re out with friends — but it can be a very interesting point of discussion.The staff were friendly and attentive — which is always a delightful experience.The Food:I ordered the Salmon, Prawn, Unagi and Snapper Nigiri/s — the amount of wasabi (which was powdered) used was just enough for the unsuspecting tongue — which was an amazing experience altogether.An extra serving of the Smoked Salmon Roll became the demise of my dining experience as the added cream cheese did nothing to improve the texture of this sushi roll. However the flavors have outstanding contrast (sweet and salty).The Ruby Sake Soda for an after-meal drink did not do the trick on putting the cherry on top — the main problem is how the glass seemed unfit to handle the drink and is almost impossible to get a sip without a number of small melting ice bits damaging your teeth. The cocktail can improve on taste and preparation. It’s aesthetically pleasing to look at though, but not enough to salvage the experienceIn total, I would consider going back to this restaurant and perhaps try other items on their menu. Their Nagiri, however, is something I can add to my “usuals”.

mike vienna13:43 08/10/23
Good german food, the gulash soup was small but the taste was okay, the fladen (a kind of appetizer pizza) tasted boring and was too crispy for me but the maindish a hunter schnitzel was big and very good, the side orders french fries and potato salad were small but the rice had a good size ! the dessert a kaiserschmarrn was average. a good place for people who like schnitzel and german beer ! too sad that its not allowed to smoke at their outdoor tables. the service was good and fast ! they charge 10 % service charge !

Unshakable Foodie21:33 08/03/23
If you have tried Brotzeit then you should know they have New Items from the Menu!But since I cannot get over yet with the Rueben Sandwich that we tried, I’d like to mention that you got to if you haven’t! I think it’s the most amazing sandwich I’ve had! The layers of meat has generous amount and the bread is just as delicious coz they make their own house bread.The New Session Board is a must try too! It is their most affordable Board for Php2,100. It contains assorted sausages, fries, fladen and fried shrimps and fish fillet.Additionally, their new Rice Meals can feed 2-3 pax per order. Imo, I cannot really finish one for its a big serving. Amongst the four New Rice toppings, I prefer the one with sausage but also with Beef Belly. Ang tender ng meat and the sauces were evenly mixed with the rice kaya balanced and tasty.If youd ask me btw which sausage I can recommend, try the Pork Cheese and Pharma Sausage which I have in my photos.Brotzeit also serves quality Beer like Lager and Ales. Prost!Go grab your friends and head to the 3 Brotzeit branches in Shaw, Alabang and BGC.

Ryan11:58 07/09/23
Did not fully enjoy the food. I think the taste of the sausages and side dishes does not cater for most people. If you ever eat here, don't be too adventurous. Beer was good though

Paula B12:05 05/15/23
Great place if you miss or love German cuisine. The Schweinshaxen was good serving and crispy, Käsespätzle, however, was more cream and less cheese than the ones in Germany. Beer is definitely good. The staff can get a bit busy and take a while but overall good place.

Emelyn Mangohig nee Eder12:35 05/09/23
This is a good place to chill. It's child-friendly and family-friendly with a casual vibe that makes everyone comfortable and safe.Smoking is not allowed in the premises, that's why it is safe to bring the kids. They serve the best beer , cocktails, sausages, and appetizers, complete with desserts to punctuate a meal.We went there on a Sunday and oh! boy, the place was really busy. Even if it was, the cheery atmosphere makes you stay and enjoy the company of your family or friends.The drinks, beer, and food are tagged with reasonable prices. So what are you waiting for? Visit Brotzeit BGC and have a good time.

Mai Ong04:48 02/25/23
I was treated by a friend here on her Birthday.Every order was huge and for sharing.I actually don't remember the names of each dishes 😂 But we were all satisfied.Place looked really nice and aesthetic and great for hanging out with friends.The alfresco area is good as well, they have ceiling fans all over the area.

Isabelle09:34 02/11/23
Atmosphere is definitely upper.But the food however is not the most authentic German dishes, but overall is good because the price is affordable, few of the dishes are good quality, the chicken nuggets from kids meal are juicy, tender. And one thing I need to mention is there are some dishes are vegetarian friendly, which can provided more options to the customers, their vegetable think crust pizza is definite a delicious choice for vegetarians.The environment is very cozy, space is wide, music is good, services are amazing.

Francesca Angeles07:38 12/12/22
Great place to eat heavy and drink merrily. We ordered the garlic sausages and spicy chicken sausages. I would definitely recommend the garlic sausages for first timers!The meals are pretty heavy! You can share a dish with a friend if you’re a light eater.

Paul Abordo07:14 02/12/22
A place surely will go back to, food will satisfy you dearly. German beer is in a whole new level for me, we ordered the lightest. Will go back here again to test out other food.

Their prices are on the steeper side but the experience was worth it.The only issue we had was their service. The appetizer, soup, and the main course were served at the same time. The table was full and my partner and I could barely move.The atmosphere was good but the day we chose was a very busy day for everyone (it was Valentine's Day) and the place was tightly packed.Their food was good and I think it is worth it for the price. It was a fairly good experience.

Paul John Lanic09:42 02/01/23
We had a nice French dinner here. The staff were game for a surprise celebration (hindi pinahiran ng cake chzzz).

The Rocas06:32 01/22/23
We dined here & we liked it! The menu is good. Love the risotto & the snails! Will definitely be back here

Mae Aquino14:37 12/17/22
Nice place with alfresco dining and view of Forbes Town street. Food and service were great. The salad was good, the steak was tender and the dessert looks grand. The skinny french fries is a must try. They were pricey but worth it.

Wither Skeleton13:31 12/04/22
It really feels like your dining right at the heart of Paris. Food are pricey yet you'll get what you paid for. The breads are freshly baked. Salmon and steaks are incredibly seasoned and grilled to perfection. You can never resist their desserts and my favorite will be the mango sorbet.

Maysheen Tiu08:43 06/14/22
Good food. The aircon on the 2nd floor doesn't cool the place that much but overall the experience was good. They also don't accept senior citizen discounts if you reserve the 2nd floor dining area. They also request for down payment to confirm the reservation

The Wholesome Table in BGC, Manila, is an absolute delight. The warm, inviting ambience complements the array of dishes made from organic, locally-sourced ingredients. The Grilled Vegetable Pesto Pizza and torched salmon bowl are must-tries! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. This restaurant's commitment to sustainability and community support is commendable. A highly recommended spot for a nourishing, delicious meal. A true gem in the heart of Manila

Jey-Aiy Reyes02:19 05/27/23
Always love eating here after a morning run. Their breakfast selection is spot on. Fave here is the crispy rosti with smoked salmon.Janella, who's always on duty every weekend, has been friendly and helpful to customers. She makes it a point to check on our orders and to stop by for a chat. This is excellent customer service.

Isabella Louise Reyes (Bella)07:37 05/21/23
Staff seated us even if it was near closing time and they were very very accommodating. We ordered quite a lot, too, and they were courteous and helpful even after a long Saturday.I think the food could've been better though. The rice served to us seemed pretty dry in both the poke bowl and Moroccan chicken bowl. Everything else was pretty good though! It was our first time there and we enjoyed our vanilla coffee milkshake and mango kombucha 🙂

Joe Dominguez08:46 02/28/23
The interior here feels lighter than the one in greenbelt. The place was also very quiet for Saturday brunch.The manager who served us gave the best Saturday morning energy. She let us order from the Breakfast menu even though breakfast was ending in 15 mins and was polite to tell us when items weren’t available.As usual, the coffee was amazing. Although the Salmon Tuyo was a bit more salty than we recalled, it was still great. The Greek Breakfast was also so good.

Ralph Dominic Ceniza17:11 01/29/23
Organic food for a cost. This place has a menu that touts everything being all organic. It has options for vegans, those on keto diets, allergic people, and other things you can think of. The food that we got tasted great but is admittedly very costly for what it is. Still, it was a great experience dining here.

Adi Forgang12:17 01/07/23
Best restaurant we ate in Manila. The food is amazing and the vibe and the staff are great. We really liked the kids menu, the variety of shakes and the special home blend coffee. Highly recommend, the prices are good and we'll worth it.

Luka sesvečan14:40 10/18/22
I was amazed by the fact that there is a tree in the middle of restaurant. It gives a feeling of nature, it relaxes and makes the place a really pleasant place to dine in.Food was very tasty, wholesome juice was a good surprise. Good place for vegetarians as well. Service was fast.Recommended.

SUN SHINE01:41 10/04/22
It was quite busy and packed when we came, but it was worth the wait. Ambiance is cozy, staff were warm and friendly. Fairly priced and delicious foods ❤️. Lasagna, nutty garlic pasta and jerk chicken are a must-try 🤤 a great place to go too indeed! Will surely come again

Merry Go Round (サトウ)13:14 08/08/23
We enjoy eating the Green Curry and Pad Thai with soft shell crab. They are flavourful and delicious. The pad Thai portion is big almost for 2 to 3 people could share.❤️❤️❤️The best one is the Mango Sticky Rice with black rice. The black rice add a very good flavour to the dessert. Will definitely order this again.Price is on a higher side but most of the foreign food here is expensive. The good thing about here is the large portion and the taste is good.Should have given 5 if the place is not warm. The cooler seems to be struggling, but other than that it’s all good. Service staff is friendly and helpful👍👍👍 thank you Jane for good service

Juan Montano10:35 08/01/23
Update:Went back a few months after this review, this time dressed down because who really dresses up in this hot weather.It took them about 30 minutes before a waiter came to my table to get my order. Despite me calling for their attention thrice.It wasn’t understaffed too because I went at an off-hour, it wasn’t busy.And, god forbid, there was a fly ruining the atmosphere.The satay was served cold to my dismay. Other items were as good as I first tried them.Overall, I’d be reluctant to recommend this place to friends or to anyone.—First of all, what. the. hell. The taste of their food is so authentic you’d forget you’re in the Philippines.I was skeptical when I heard that they were pushing their authenticity but gosh darn they mean what they said.I did not opt to buy their dessert (sticky rice) but the server insisted that we should since it’s good and thank god we did. It’s phenomenal.Definitely one of the best food experience of my life.Shoutout to our very kind server!

K R02:12 07/26/23
Good food, nice ambiance. Place can get busy and noisy at times. Pad Siew w Shrimp, Mango Sticky Rice, and Watermelon Shake were all good!

Alyssa Joanne Sevilla18:38 07/15/23
First time to try mango sticky rice - it’s so gooood! Their place is so cozy and outdoorsy at the same time. I also loved the Thai milk tea but I wanted to try their other food, maybe when I’m with my family/friends because servings are big and food are a bit pricey. Can’t wait to try their Pad Thai and other menu items! Follow @loveytries on Tiktok for more.

Charles Zhu08:00 07/12/23
We had lunch here with a friend. All dishes are yummy, of which the mango with sticky rice is my wife’s favourite.

Micah Encarnacion15:07 06/24/23
Went there at 4pm and the resto is not yet full. We went back to order takeout at around 7pm, and there is already a long line waiting outside. This is probably the best Thai resto in the Metro. We especially love the mango sticky rice and pad thai with chicken.

Jheng Fajardo08:38 04/23/23
Choose their recommended dishes which I found really good. Food is delicious, however, the service is not so nice considering there were only a few customers dining during that time. Not very attentive service crew, I'm not sure if they were busy with something else.

mark yu23:01 12/03/22
Food: tastes like legit foreign dishes. Service: called a few times and couple weeks in advance and also on the evening of my dinner date to book a table both instances told that they only do walk ins. Upon dinner date, found my guests sitting on a round table good for 6 where as I needed 10. Waiter said other empty tables were already 'reserved' besides the fact they told me over the phone they do not do such. Finally got a long table that will seat all my invited guests. Atmosphere was good, ambience well enough to conduct conversations. Stayed open til late.

Adrian Garcia06:22 10/16/22
The place is nice, good ambiance and spacious. We ordered Pad Thai with Soft Shell Crab. It tastes great, but when we have eaten half of it, there’s a small dead cockroach beneath the noodles. We asked the staff to replace the plate and they did, but we haven’t heard any apology or anything that could make us feel better after what happen. The Stir Fried Crab in Curry Sauce is the best that we tried. The Serving time is too long.

Luke Cotterman (L.A.cotterman)13:44 08/02/22
I enjoyed every dish. Wonderful flavors! The oysters were steamed in a citrus soup. The stir fryed chicken was delicious.We had a couple of shakes and juices. They were very natural and sarap! The beef curry was well rounded. Only downside is the dishes are expensive but high quality. The restaurant is very beautiful with a serene atmosphere 🤤

Marry Ann Federis06:15 02/13/22
I’m not into Thai food. But their food is good and i surprisingly like it. 😅😅😅It’s a bit pricey though. So don’t go here if your pocket is not prepared. 😅Coffee is good also. Ordered it to avoid being sleepy, coz it’s a dinner meeting.Overall, the place is nice, spacious.Don’t know if i will be back here again, so here it goes. 😉😌😌

Maher Barcena21:35 01/02/22
Craving for Thai food from all the BL series you've watched? This is the place in the metro. We did a reservation to avoid waiting, the entire menu is great! The place is also well ventilated & the service is good. You can also have loud conversation since the ceiling is high, tables are also far from each other so it feels like you're in a bubble. Book a seat at the circle couch, also ask the waiter what's the chef's recommended if it's your first. Great interiors too!

Las Flores has a very homey ambiance. And their service was really great! Free vale parking service. The food can be compared to some bistro in the metro. Will we come back? The price point makes me think twice. Maybe in the future...

Kyla G02:26 05/03/23
Had a great time celebrating Mother's Day here. Enjoyed all our food items, especially their Sangria. We made a reservation ahead of time to ensure our seats. The service was also great. All the staff members were attentive and accommodating. I would've loved if the food items had bigger serving sizes, especially the Paella. I loved the Paella Cochinillo and the Angus & Foie Minis. I would say that the price is worth the taste and the experience.

Maria Cocinera14:14 04/10/23
We had a lovely dinner here. Staff were very nice and helpful. We liked everything we’ve ordered except for the Paella Mariscos, it was dry.

LL Low14:47 03/28/23
One of the best Spanish restaurants in Manila, the food is great and the atmosphere is superb. Service staffs are friendly and helpful. Good place for gathering or even romantic dinner. Overall, highly recommended.

Errol09:20 03/25/23
quality went down over the years, or probably the number of better restaurants went up. the tapas that we ordered were mostly cooked the same way so unfortunately tasted the same way.

Lemmy B14:22 12/04/22
Food is superb! No question there, we loved it.The Paella Cochinillo is a must try! However…So disappointed with the service unfortunately. Here’s why:-The food were not served right (?), they served the paella first before our appetizers. My mom’s iced tea was served after the paella, which we even followed up.-We ordered dessert before we were told that the kitchen is already closing in few mins. After a while, the waiter approached saying the order didnt make it.I would expect a good service for this price range, so that’s something I hope they’ll improve on.Customer service is a huge part of the dining experience. It’s our first time here and not sure I’d wanna come back nor recommend to my friends.

Marcus Leong07:23 10/16/22
The salmon cones are an absolute must try. Ordered it because it looked interesting but the taste was even better than it looks. The Gambas were also nice. Cleaned the entire pan with the bread we were served. Would definitely come back again when we're next here in Manila.

Hannah14:55 07/10/22
Had my dad’s birthday dinner here and we all loved the place! Food was delicious and the ambience was lovely - our server Tine was friendly and attentive. Only thing that could be improved would be the paella (it was a little bland) but other than that everything was fantastic. Would definitely be back again!

RL Zapanta13:44 07/02/22
Las Flores is a great place to dine and unwind. Their Angus & Foie Minis is really good (must order!). And their gin & tonic line is refreshing. Service is wonderful. Kudos to Ed and Luna who assisted us during our visit.

Edmund Nieves05:20 06/26/22
The food was great especially the paella. Only complaint was the sangria wasn’t up to par but the service and food were the best. Will definitely be coming back here again.

Caramel Pudding16:33 08/04/23
Unli mojito? Go here. I got drunk with their mojitos lol. Food is good. But I don't really like their nacho dips so we had to order other pulutan like sisig. Interior is very pub-like. Very accommodating staff!

Riza Alejandro22:49 07/07/23
Foods are great, but service is too slow.. like you need to wait 30 -45 minutes before you can receive your orders. Then since we ordered bottomless mojito, every refill they will give us a plain mojito even though our order is the mango flavored mojito so we need to rerurn it back to them. It happened until the last refill. They didn't get it right not even once. And the last mojito that my friend returned, she's able to take a sip on it before she realized that it's not what she ordered, so she returned and ask for replacement, then we saw they gave to another customer, so my friend informed them that she already used the straw. 🤣

Hands down my fav spot in all of Eastwood. already been here several times and can say for a fact that the quality is really high. Hygiene is a huge factor for me when dining out in the Philippines, and unlike some other venues within Eastwood, Agave always keeps up with this. Usually come here for brunches when it isnt too hectic and feel like this place is being slept on by many.Perfect if you feel like having a beer, when everyone is having lunch.

Every dish we had was good. Reminded me of Mexican restaurants back home in the USA. The margaritas were good A little strong for me. Has an open outside patio area! Can be busy especially during nights and weekends. Loud and boisterous if you like a lively like an energetic atmosphere! Kid friendly anytime in my opinion. Great for bigger get togethers. They are understaffed for busy times so wait times will be long. Took us about an hour to get our entire meal. But not bad because they were always bringing something to the table as soon as it was ready. So a steady stream of dishes to nibble on ! The waitresses wear tight skimpy short dresses and halter tops with a low cut. Young single guys would like this 😂 But still kid friendly it's not like we don't see this every day at malls and schools 🤷😁

Jack Russell13:45 06/29/22
Near the fort strip of bars and nightclubs, I think Agave has a distinct flavor of being a happy hour restaurant so its definitely a good change of pace if you're tired of partying or jumping around in The Island or Versus. The food is definitely tastier than the even more overpriced ones inside the bar. There are tons of unlimited options for food and drinks like nacho chips with an amazing tasting dip and a margarita that would challenge even the strongest tequila companero out there. Still, I'm not giving a perfect rating because I lost one of my earbuds there and while asking assistance one of the waitresses told me my earbuds was trash thats why it wasn't found. I didn't completely feel vexed because at least the manager assisted me and reassured me that my earbuds wasn't there by showing me the lost and found logs.

Rohan Muralee03:25 03/18/22
Great place for snacks and drinks - great offers on freeflow drinks too!Service is very friendly and one of the staff even ran quite a way after us as we had left something at the restaurant after paying.Food isn't bad either, and the al fresco seating is a good people watching spot, with a good breeze across the area.

Craig Mason05:19 02/27/22
The food is lovely and was the right size to meet my expectations.The location is a hop, skip, and a jump from Uptown Mall. The restaurant is open air, which allows for that indoor, outdoor feel.The staff were initially a little inattentive; however, later, we were visited by the manager to check if everything was OK. A nice touch.All in all, it is a nice place to grab a quick bite to eat or bring friends for a catch-up.

One and only Mamen08:31 07/09/23
Great place to celebrate a milestone... I was here 2 weeks ago for a dinner date. My gf booked the reservation in advance. We both stayed inside the restaurant for air conditioned experience. Food is delicious with the reasonable price. Their service as well is spectacular, very accommodating and polite. Their manager noticed that I was also celebrating my birthday so she initiated a good plan, giving me a cheesecake desert with a birthday design and greeting me with a song. It was a beautiful experience.

Joei Ming15:14 06/27/23
Nice place to unwind with friends. Good location -- at the heart of BGC. Excellent service. Al fresco dining available. Food is a fusion of Filipino cuisine & some other country. Good for conversation as music is just right. Will go back and vheck out otger food in the menu

Andrew dela Serna07:04 06/04/23
Loved our dinner at La Picara! We ordered the Croqueyaki (Jamon Croquettes), Cachopo, Salmon and Socarrat, Glazed Iberico Pork Ribs, Truffle and Mushroom Paella. Their ribs were tender enough to fall off the bone, while their Truffle Paella was one of a kind and delicious. My nieces didn’t like the Cachopo though, only coz they didn’t like Blue Cheese.

Jerico Bautista06:44 05/16/23
Went there for lunch with no reservation. Good thing that they had a free table during that time so I recommend getting a reservation before hand. Food was good and they serve every table a complementary appetizer. There were two of us and we spent around 5.4k but that’s because we ordered a lot of food. The only thing I didn’t like is the very limited dessert selection. There were only like three desserts on the menu.

Krissan Pattugalan15:45 04/29/23
Not bad. Pretty noisy and a little too warm inside. Food was okay, but only a few good dishes. Croquettes, mango appetizer, truffle paella were the standouts.

Dawn Ignacio16:57 12/11/22
It's a total package of what good restaurant is all about. Unique menu. Great tropical atmosphere within the metro. At first I thought the serving is too small but then there's so much flavor in every dish. The portion size saves you from the "umay". Overall I was satisfied with this first visit.

Kelvin Leong14:53 10/01/22
Good food and great service by the staff even though dinner crowd is super busy for them. Orders took about 15 minutes to be served, but they have a very organized and efficient kitchen.Alfresco and indoor seating available. Pricing is reasonable and food portion is huge too. Nice place to chill with friends and have a drink or two.

Joshua L.12:35 09/04/22
Food was really good and unique! The whole atmosphere was really nice too. Each food had some uniqueness to it where it combines different cultures. Some things that could have been improved is hiring more waiters/waitresses. However, service was really good as the waiter said he’ll give one of the appetisers on the house.Food portions were actually smaller than expected though, but that basically means you get to try out a wide variety.

Pia Javellana10:17 05/09/22
Always a favorite, whether via delivery or in house. Not a lot of people in today, so after elections immediately went here. Food is immaculate as always but the one thing I noticed today is that their staff is very well-trained. There's only 3 of them catering to more than 5 full tables but we never had to get their attention for water refills or anything. They were quick, attentive and on-point. Great job, guys and gals!

Ritzi Yap01:04 05/03/22
The food is excellent although a bit pricey. The ambience is very good. You can see several light decorations on every part of the restaurant. The tables have intricate designs as well as the plates. The bar area has some good lighting and you can see the hanging plants on top and some on other areas. The service was great. The staff was friendly and was able to attend to our orders promptly. The waiting time seems to be a bit long but it's understanable since the place was packed that night. I ordered the beef cheeks with cheese and it was delicious.

Lara Mercado06:57 06/09/23
Availed the 50% off BPI promo on a friday with my mom and sister. Food was still really good, with the pasta being my favorite. Service was a bit slow, but since it was a Friday and it's dinner rush, that could be expected.

Carbon Malibu10:05 06/03/23
This was the best meal we had in Manila. Service was really good and the food and drinks were terrific! The Italian Smash lived up to its name, the steak was outstanding and the roasted pear and walnut salad with blue cheese was superb. Topped off by mango panna cotta and a white chocolate and coconut cheesecake, we couldn't have asked for a better start to our visit to the Philippines.

Carlo A.05:30 05/10/23
Love everything. Four seasons mango is still my fave since 2018! Mussels lombardi didn’t disappoint. The pizza, dessert, chicken, and pasta are above average.Salmon is immaculate.

Mickey Huynh05:46 01/10/23
First of all, many thanks to Sandy. Sandy took a good care of us while we dine in. She made us feel right at home. I read so many good reviews about the baby back ribs, and it’s no disappointment. It is that good. The seafood stew served with garlic bread is some you must have. The fried calamari is not bad either. The lasagna is amazing. Over all I couldn’t complain about anything, all the food dishes are delicious. I would definitely recommend this place for everyone who loves Italian food.

lyn galindo11:09 11/28/22
The food is great! It was served fast and hot. Our waiter, Frank, is very courteous and friendly. He's very attentive to our needs. Two thumbs up for the food and service. We'll surely come again. Keep it up!

Tim Mitchell09:20 10/10/22
Great service and menu. Italian can run expensive, and while this place does run that direction they do offer varying size dishes/menu items and large app selection to deal with a budget.Appreciate outdoor seating.Would recommend and return.

Harold Baguinon12:08 08/07/22
Food and drinks were fantastic! We were looking for a decent Italian restaurant and this place more than delivered. Thank you to our server, Grace, for being so accommodating.

Rebecca Canete03:03 07/18/22
I would give this branch a perfect rating. The food was great, I love the Truffle mushroom pasta, Sicilian Salad, Risotto, and Quatro Staggioni. It was a great dining experience and Ice served us well, she's got that good vibes that made the experience so pleasant.

Mafaith Libot12:49 06/27/22
Great food and service. We had a nice dinner. Thanks to Charm.

Kira Cortes00:37 03/18/22
Always love their bread!! The portion size is a little expensive for the price but it's good to have bistro card for the discount. Must tries are the Truffle Chicken Pasta, Mozzarella Fritters, Calamaris! The hot wings are pretty decent but you don't really go there for the wings. Their Quatro Pizza was good too!Another thing if you order Mozzarella Fritters with Italian truffle fries, do dip the mozzarella with the truffle sauce! It just works.

kzbtn03:51 07/18/23
We went here for a late lunch meal. The food menu is filipino cuisine with some twist. Like for example, they have adobo but with an octopus arm and adlai on the side.🤳Ambiance - okay for casual meetup and family dining. But the aircon above our table was slightly dripping that I have to change seat.👨‍💼Service - staff were attentive🍴Food - great for filipino food lovers who is also adventurous. You can expect some artistic plating and instagrammable flat lay- K

Dan P04:19 07/05/23
Icy cold beer meets first time filipino fusion food!When experiencing a country’s cuisine for the first time they get one chance for that initial impression to be a good one. Kinda like a first date. Let’s just say we hit it off spectacularly!The Lechon Sisig with Oyster is a triumph. Each mouthful is rich and unctuous!Not to be outdone, the gravy-like Sinigang shone with strong citrus-notes underpinned by the taste of tamarind.A generous portion of king-sized Sugpo sizzling in a garlic butter is decadent and self-indulgent. A real treat.The chicken wings had a satay-like sauce drizzled generously over the top - you might need the napkins after devouring these.And finally to ensure we soak up all those flavours, huge platters of garlic rice. Rice is life!Did I mention this is quite possibly the coldest beer I’ve ever had - Right on the cusp of icy, this was really crisp and refreshing. I had the cerveza negra, a really great malty beer.Such a fantastic experience and representation of the Filipino food culture - no wonder the food is lauded throughout SEA. Really great, will choose to come here every time I visit BGC.

Its open kitchen gives diners a sneak peek at the culinary delights in the pipeline.

Locavore elevates home cooking to an art form, leaving home chefs in awe of its innovative fusion.

Aleli Rosario06:04 05/13/23
This branch has almost continuous tables. Inside, the feeling could be a bit cramped. However, you soon forget that as soon as the food arrives.We ordered an assortment of appetizers and Filipino dishes. Locavore serves it with a twist and you'll be delighted with the presentation. Food is delicious!Service is attentive and friendly.

Julie Orosco04:38 03/26/23
amazing filipino food with modern twist.their ginataang kalabasa is absolutely lovely. wish there are more kalabasa though as it has more lechon belly than veggies. not really complaining though.everything we tried on this place is top notch 😊definitely recommended!!

Johanna Minglana18:10 12/01/22
Good food choices. Filipino dishes with a twist. A bit pricey tho for the quantity. Servers are fine -- on my 3rd time to dine here, I had to ask 3x for a glass of water. Might come back.

Maricar (eats_maricar)16:39 08/28/22
Dinner with cousins on a Sunday night. We ordered sizzling sinigang, sisig oyster, boneless lechon belly, ginataang kalabasa and street food platter. We enjoyed the food as always though the Manager on duty was not so nice.Food 5/5Customer service4/5We arrived at 9:05pm and the manager on duty said that they are no longer accepting customers but when I called around 830pm I was told that we can walk in as long as we arrive before 930pm. Good thing that they still accomodated us. I understand that you guys are tired but I hope you follow your own rules.

Oscar Views05:25 08/22/22
I ordered the mango mojito and it tasted good I think it was made with green mango that’s why you will get the acidity/bitterness from. Good drink overall I would give it a 3 star for this cocktail since the mint leaves were old and dark and not appealing to look at. See pic.Also ordered the tuna fish stake don’t let the size fool you, 50% is bone but the meat part is very tasty and with strong fish flavor if you are up for it. I do.We also order 4or 5 more dishes that come on skillets. For a skillet dish it comes with a medium to medium-low temperature. In case you want to know or like it hotter. My preference is a little warmer by the way I ordered Caldereta and it was served on a plate… it was almost cold. I liked the items that go with your food as toppings (see pic) from onions, sautéed onions, cracklings and a lot more on different dishes which made them very pretty to the eyes. The octopus paella was a bit on the salty side but tasty nonetheless. Overall food was a 4 star. Great stuff.Service was a little lacking, after our order was delivered to our table nobody come back to take another cocktail order, or to check if all our order arrived well. so we save the drinks for another place. Service is key for me so this department gets a 3 star.Overall good place to enjoy lunch with friends.

Jennifer Ann15:05 07/30/22
First time here! Filipino dishes with a nice twist 😍 I liked their cocktails too, tried Diwata (my new name while in the place) and Sexy Sili. Staff are nice and accommodating. A must try. Am coming back!! 💕

InquiringMind04:24 03/23/22
The food was great. It was a bit hot in the resto but the way they ate the food is very nice. It's a great place to get a bite to eat with some friends. They have a unique mix of classic food with a modern twist. Give it a try.
