Love love love! Food is amazing, always busy and food is always consistently good. Must try the aristocrat chicken it's just tastes amazing. Desserts are a must try too this place has been open for over 25 years. So much food to choose from And all cooked fresh. Great value for money service is fast they accept all major cards.

HORRIBLE place, no Aircon (correction they have it but didn't turn it on) and smelled like body odor from everyone sweating . Didn't bring half our food until after a very long time and forgot one part. Food was good, so I suggest take out as everything about this place is TERRIBLE.

I am still lucky to enjoy the company of both my living Papa and Mama. Weekend early lunches are always exciting cause it brings your childhood memories back. Get the bbq's all of it with sotanghon soup and the peanut sauce plus extra java rice. It is also entertaining to view the pictures of old and history on how Aristocrat... More

This restaurant was there when I was still a kid. I am now a senior citizen just imagine how many centuries are their existence? The taste of chicken barbecue is still the same even with their old time favorite such as Dinuguan with puto, arroz caldo and bibingka. Love to go and dine there.

One can understand why they say this restaurant has been operating since 1936. And I'm not one to venture lightly into Filipino restaurants. We walked in and were greeted immediately by a mature and well dressed man. He guided us to our table promptly. Once seated, menus were placed before us. The array was unexpected and looked delicious. We ordered... More

Attended bday party here - ample parking, spacious venue, good service. A very big problem is sanitation. Their septic tank beside the resto is busted and smells terrible! The food is so-so (maybe lost my appetite because of what i saw and smelled outside)

I was told I had to eat at this restaurant as it is an "institution" in the city. Shades of the 1970's. Service was efficient and friendly. Great view of the sunset on Manila Bay and just across the street, the Dancing Fountain all lit up at night. Had the BBQ boneless chicken and garlic rice, kare-kare, pancit, and calamare.... More

We went there to have a brunch meal that consisted of the all time favourite chicken adobo, dinuguan (blood stew) with puto (white bread). And to finish the meal, we had Halo-halo (sweetened fruit mixture with milk and ice. Thumbs up!
