With the extreme amount of competition for good, better, best Filipino cuisine, Via Mare has been one of the old time standards... dinner the other night over business had us order the requisite comfy food choices - and, found that while the food filled you up, it was a notch under Abe, Sarsa and quite a lot of other options...

This was recommended to us for their bibingka and heck did not disappoint!!! It was out of this world soft and melting. Ubod was amazzze, alimasag dish was moreishly filling, bangus asado great and the luglug was max sarap with lashings of calamansi! And the restaurant was fresh and modern. The point lost went to the staff! Lack of acknowledgement... More

The ambiance is very comfortable and cozy. Most of the food are Filipino food, with big servings. We ordered the fiesta rice which is... More

Went with a business colleague and had a great meal. Had the oysters that were large and well presented and the steak which was as tender as anything served up in a steak restaurant.. Both of us enjoyed our meals with enough staff to be of service but not annoying. Well worth a visit when in town if you like... More

A must try dessert. Puto bumbong and bibingka just divine. Reasonable price but the taste captures the real flavour. Coming back to the country once in a while... I long for these desserts, I love the way its cooked traditionally and freshly made. Will definitely come back here again when I return to the country...

Daytime casual dining for lunch or snacks (merienda). There is an outdoor setting option. Indoor mostly Filos inside the restaurant. All furniture set up are really very casual. Enjoyed the "bibingka" a really nicely cooked and flavoured mix with salted egg topping.

We visited the Oyster Bar on our one-day layover in Manila. The menu offered home-style Filipino food as well as oysters. The oyster beignets are a must try. The service was great, the price was right, and the food was yummy.
