Best restaurants in Philippines

Casa Roces

Casa Roces gives visitors a formal dining experience with a relaxed ambience and dishes crafted into cleanly presented fusion plates of Filipino and Spanish cuisines. The restaurant has the feel of a European brasserie, with high-end food and service but no stuffiness, despite its location in an historic 1930s house. A more recent acquisition is the Galeria Roces, which exhibits changing contemporary art shows has turned Casa Roces into a ‘dining and arts venue’.

La Cocina de Tita Moning

La Concina de Tita Moning’s menu was created by Suzette Montinola, who gathered her late grandmother’s timeless recipes and began serving them to close friends and members of the public. After much success, the restaurant has become a popular place to experience authentic Filipino cuisine. Previously the family home, ‘The Legarda Mansion’ in which the restaurant is located doubles up as a museum. This experience is highlighted by quirky features such as individual bells on each table in case the efficient service falters. Begin with cocktails on the veranda for a memorable evening.

Cafe Cristina was originally the go-to cafe for the guests of the Cristina Villas Mountain Resort and Hotel.

La Travieza Seafood Restaurant

La Travieza has been around for quite a while, and I finally was able to visit recently for a friend's wedding reception. We were treated to a sumptuous all-you-can-eat buffet, which costs around P280.00 per person. As is the case at most buffet restaurants,La Travieza has a policy against sharing, leftovers, and takeout.While they are a seafood restaurant, the buffet also offers a variety of other foods, such as:Pasta,Pizza,Desserts,Meat viands,Vegetables,Tofu,Shellfish,Squid,Fish,Soup,Salad.

As you can see, there's a lot of food offerings. On top of that, it's tasty. Their food style is more similar to home-cooking, while still maintaining enough of a restaurant quality to satiate most appetites.

Aside from the buffet, there are also individual and combo meals for ordering. True to its name, most of these combos consist of seafood. However, in an effort to cater to different tastes, there are also meat offerings for short orders -- they even even have a grilled section featuring different cuts of steak.

La Travieza is a great restaurant to visit when you're in the mood to eat a hearty, endless meal.
