Stayed 5 in Manila, ate at Barbara's twice! Food was decent but what made the 2 nights special was the music & dancers. Service was great too. But it's the music & traditional dance that really did it for us. Great time, highly recommend!!

Good Filipino/Spanish food in historic Intramuros. I chose to order ala carte even as they are more well known for their buffet. Most days this is not full and the waiters are quite attentive.
