The ambiance is better than the food! Not everything is good so you have to choose from the menu carefully. The salmon wellington was dry & bland. The mushroom fritters is a good way to start. The paella valencia & lechon paksiw de conchinillo are just okay. the Lengua melts in your mouth. The malacanan souffle is sweet with a... More

Actually, this is our favorite restaurant near our place. Not accessible due to its location (inside Malacanang) but the choices of food and taste, also the ambiance and service...really superb! The bacon, roasted chicken and even the smores, my kids really loved it!

It started well with the onion soup. I eagerly finished it to move on to the entree, lechon paksiw cochinillo, and was surprised by how tough the meat was. It had a twist as it was served with a mango salsa that i thought was distracting but this and the fact that the meat was tough made this trip a... More

I say food needs improvvement not because it is really in poor taste my probably lacks flavor. Again this review is subjective it is according to my opinion regarding my take to food. But I must say that this is a very private area where you can really feel you are exclusive though dining with other people but you won't... More

Located just outside Malacanang Palace, it is a popular venue for business lunches fir government officials. It can get very busy so if your time is limited, book in advance. Good ambience and knowledgeable and helpful staff. My companion and I both found the food to be very well cooked and beautifully presented but foreigners may find the servings a... More

Went here several times and the food is so so. Nothing spectacular but the price is steep. That's what you get when you have a captured market.

Our waiter,Ray, was very nice and courteous. The starters came swiftly as did the rest of the dishes. A couple of orders like the lemonade and chocolate beverage came a bit surprisingly late. This is our second time here after maybe a couple of years. The dishes were well prepared but nothing extraordinary. I had the vegetarian baked eggplant and... More

The restaurant has above average food and presentation, but it may be setting too great an expectation with the kind of prices and reviews they have had. We had paella negra, pollo iberico, and some kind of beef. Paella negra was quite good and had a lot of seafood, but the Pollo Iberico and the beef were closer to "average"... More

On the final night of my visit to Manila, I went to Casa Roces with my cousins as my going-away despedida dinner. Specialty is definitely Filipino cuisine which I enjoyed a lot. Big disappointment with the wine selection, and when they brought my glass of house red wine it was chilled (unless I'm missing something here, red wine is served... More

Read so many reviews of this restaurant so my expectation was quite high. Sadly, the food was mediocre at best. We were a group of 8 friends with varied tastes and we all agreed that the dishes were really not that impressive. We liked the Baked Laing as an appetizer. The Lengua was flavorful and so was my order of... More
