We always dine here when shopping. The place is not that full every time we eat here. Love their pancit luglug, sinigang na hipon, vigan longganisa, bibingka, and puto bumbong.

Via Mare is known for Filipino food with Spanish influence. The food is consistently good, you can see because of the flock of diners, and you can also see they are not new customers. Consistent also is the service which is poor. They tend to wait on others forgetting your order. So avoid when its crowded and when those seated... More

We were doing our last minute shopping at the Landmark around the last few hours before closing. Via Mare was the most convenient as we had to continue shopping after dinner. The servings were adequate and the food was tasty.

I'm so amazed that all of my local favourites are served on this Cafe. The food presentations are excellent and the taste is very nostalgic, reminds me so much of my childhood memories. I remember my grandma almost all of the food they serve here. Happy tummy.

Whenever i feel like eating the good old Filipino merienda meals like Pancit Luglog, Ginatang Bilubilo, Tokwa't Baboy, Goto, Puto Bumbong, Puto Maya, Bibingka, Puto Maya, etc., etc., only one resto name comes into my mind and that is no other than Cafe Via Mare. Good food at at the right price.

A new friend we met up took us here for lunch, and we were glad she did! I loved all the food we ordered: munggo, salad, tilapia, sinigang, tinapa rice! We will definitely come back and eat here again on our next visit!

Nice ambience , nice service. Great food. I love the bibingka and halohalo. we eat here if we have cravings for filipino kakanin. I also like the adobo flakes. it's a little pricey though.

You can find this chain of Filipino restaurant in most malls in Manila. They serve a selection of popular Filipino food, and the quality of food is good. We had the crispy roast pork, egg omelette with aubergine and tamarind soup with shrimps. Price is good too. Service is quick and place is clean. Good place for families and friends.

Cafe Via Mare in the middle of Landmark Dept. Store's 2nd floor is a great place to snack or take a meal. Menu offers enough choice of Filipino food that will satisfy most people, servings are adequate, even big, and food is tasty and appetizing. This cafe seems to have been there forever, but food quality has been maintained.

Thank happysong123
