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.

Great restaurant and very reasonable prices for the service offered. The food quality is great and waiters give you an honest opinion in what is good and what you should pass on.

But eventually they became 3 when more customers started coming in. We ordered their Tyan na Bangus in Miso which was really god but there were... More

Come here for green mango juice, not for the food and definitely not for the service. Waiters were dismissive... Food was average - my husband's meal of pork and rice was average. As a vegetarian, I ordered pomelo and radish salad, a side of rice and lupia (spring rolls)... View was of the women's shoe department. The green mango juice... More
