I have always wanted to go there but they are fussy about reservations and this time I managed to get a table without any fuss at the last moment. I opted for the a la carte instead of the tasting menu. I had the buratta and I think it is one of the best buratta I have had. They paired... More

We had a perfectly fine meal here one evening recently. However, it is very hard to justify their price point. I've had much better food for much less money and, frankly, the atmosphere is nothing special. I can see coming here for fancy business meetings or special occasions. Otherwise, save your money and pick something more down to earth and... More

Without a doubt this is one of my favorite restaurants here. Delicious food, stellar service & pleasant soothing ambiance. The homemade mushroom ravioli never fails; other favorites are the twice baked prawn soufflé and any of the steaks. Desserts here also never disappoint- my personal favorites are the chocolate soufflé which comes with Tahitian Vanilla bean icecream and chocolate sauce... More

I hadn’t visited for a year or so and was very pleased to see the quality of food and service had if anything improved from the previous high standard. The restaurant has a six seater round table with heavy white table cloth perfect for a good chat over a couple of bottles of wine. Service is excellent with plates appearing... More

Salsa is a great restaurant to enjoy a wide range of foods and we have found the salads equal to any we have tried throughout the world.

Sala was a cute and elegant fine dining restaurant. The food was yummy and ambiance was great. Service was good (except for one of the female waitresses who seemed like she had better things to do) and I would definitely come here again. It is pretty pricy even for fine dining but I would say it was worth it. I... More

The service was more than bad for a Restaurant like this. We asked to dine outside. The waiter served cutlery bu no napkins. We had to remind him twice to get a napkin. Finally he brought napkins after the appetizer was served. Bread and butter was served after the appetizer was served. Bread was offered in a large basket and... More

This place is quite sophisticated with a very modern western menu. A small restaurant with good service. It is pretty high up there for Manila on price. Meals are all very interesting and on the small portion / Nuevo style.

We had our dinner here. Great food great ambiance. Its just that staffs are really pushy in offering wine drinks. The staff offered me three times and I also rejected him thrice. It was kinda annoying but all in all it was great.

There is simply nothing wrong to say about this place. The staff were welcoming and friendly the moment you walked in the door. They were attentive and yet not hovering. And wow!!! The food was amazing. We got the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fabulous. It was like each dish just kept getting better. The duck we... More
