This restaurant is another old favorite. We like the Filipino food they serve like the pancit luglog, arroz caldo, tokwa't baboy, pandesal with Laguna cheese, pork tocino rice plate, adobo flakes plate, tapa plate, rellenong bangus and the bibingka and puto bumbong.

Via Mare has always been a favorite restaurant serving Filipino cuisine. The new and bigger branch along Timog Avenue in Quezon City however disappointed us. Some of the usual fare ( squid, beef kaldereta, bangus, puto bumbong, oysters) were fine but the other Pinoy favorites here (bibingka, palitaw, mango with sticky rice) was not the usual fare that we enjoy...

I always go to Via Mare when I want to eat Dinuguan with puto or Goto. Sometimes, when our family craves for local food like guinataan, bribingka or palitaw and Pancit Luglog, we always go to Via Mare. Other people enjoy the oysters too but I never tried it yet. All I can say is we love to eat in... More

This place is surprisingly full during a Saturday afternoon at 3-4 PM with people having merienda. Bibingka was good. The other food like palitaw, mais con hielo tasted like you could have them elsewhere. Puto bumbong was a bit sour - panis. Ambiance is nice.
