We went evening of the Chinese New Year. We were seated near the noisy drums of the Chinese new year celebration, so it was kind of hard to hear. I might no be able to blame everything on the waiter, but blaming me as well? I was asking much about the menu whether the shrimp is peeled, and if the... More

This is the only breakfast place you can go to if you are staying in Go Hotels. Nothing special about the food or the coffee. The place can be hot as well as the airconditioning is not turned on yet. We could have liked to try their mexican food offerings but since we have have been eating breakfast here we... More

I wasn't impressed with the food . The prices where cheap enough but there really wasn't much of a menu. The staff is very friendly. I found it impossible to get a good western breakfast staying around this area.

Located on the outside if Robinson's Mall in Masbaras, Tacloban, this friendly place serves good sized portions at a very reasonable price. Great outdoor and indoor seating and opens earlier than the Mall itself. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try the Fajitas, yummy with a cold San Miguel beer.

We stayed in Go Hotels. Naturally we had to ate inside Robinsons Place. However we decided to look for a restaurant that's peculiar only in Tacloban and we spotted Mex 'Em Up. No regrets! Staff were friendly, the place clean. The food was tasty, the servings big enough for sharing and their food presentation made me ate more than I... More

We had breakfast at the Mex em up Grill this past weekend. The breakfast was tasty and delicious. We ordered the Pinoy breakfast with Tocino. Good service, clean restaurant located at the Robinson's Mall. If you stay at the Go Hotel, it's literally a 15 second walk to the restaurant. It opens at 7:00am. I will definitely return to this...

Good breakfast for only 160php, friendly staff. Nice to sit outside with a breeze and watch the ppl go by etc. Convenient location. Better than the horrible noise inside Robinsons. Menu OK, some variety. Sells beer all day :) Downside, need more staff (even the security guard was having to help out), and tell Gerry's cafe nxt door to turn... More

If you're tired of the usual fastfood or food chain selections in Tacloban City, try mex 'em up. They offer American, Mexican, and Asian dishes. Don't expect that much on the food quality as the flavors have been a bit localized, anyway it's cheap. Try their Quezadilla and their fruit shakes for lunch while in Robinson's or Savemore Tacloban. Waiting... More

I always like their carbonara and chicken buffalo. The place is clean (SM Savemore Tacloban), however, their branch in Robinson Mall is quite narrow. Crew members are courteous but some girls should put a smile on their faces. Sayang ang ganda nila :-)
