Service was terrible. Granted that we were seated outside, it's hard for us to be noticed by their servers when we're calling their attention. But it's a different story when my friend has to go directly to the staff at the bar inside to get our bill since we asked for our bill several times but to no avail. Food... More

Visited the place with Korean friends. Went there to listen to the band. We ordered cocktails and light food. The crowd was having fun, some were dancing. Service can be a bit slow if the place is full. One of the few places in Ortigas Center where we can go and listen to a live band, eat and drink. There... More

This place was a favourite "after-work" hangout for me and colleagues, when we worked in the Galleria office tower. Now it's 2016, I'm back in Manila, and have been able to visit again. The beer is still cold, the food is varied and OK, and there is live music in the evening. Valet parking is available.

As I was walking from the mall back to the hotel, I saw this little place that had character and wanted to try it. Lucky I did because tje food was delicious. A live band came in and were setting up. I did not stay to hear them but maybe next time. I ordered the Salmon and it was great,... More

Freaking service sucks like hell! Don't waste your precious time here. The food is "so so" and totally not worth your money and time. On top of that, it takes forever to get your bill and food (you have to continuously remind/follow up with them where your freaking food is). Totally regretting my decision to go here. Do yourself a... More

It's very seldom that you see live band playing and this place has one of the good ones and so inexpensive.

We have been frequent diners for the past ten years! Food is great! Pizzas, pastas, salads.The staff is friendly and attentive. The bands play retro music. The place is cozy and we love entertaining our friends here.

Came here on a Friday and the band was playing 70s and 80s music. The band was awesome! They got people to sing along with them and dance to their music. Crowd favorites were songs from the Beatles and Abba. The singers were faithful to the original feel of the music. As a vegetarian, I wasn't really paying attention to... More

Been a couple of times during lunch. This resto in Ortigas is such a haven for those who wants their food good with good ambiance and nice staff. They serve P150+ lunch and P1.00 brewed coffee! My fave is the Beef Peppercorn and Lomi. Though sometimes, their Lomi is out of stock. The food is served fast and with style.... More

First time to have dinner here and watch a band perform. This pub is jam-packed in the evenings. Their food is quite good although pricey. Ordered squid sisig. Think TGIF only higher end and better but more reasonably priced food bundled with outstanding music. The featured band, Silk, featured great female singers and could dish out very difficult popular songs... More
