The food and service is good. What is disappointing I when the establishment does not honor senior discounts fir foreigners even though many establishments do. So don't be surprised.

This restaurent served mainly Filipino foods, it is the first time I tried them and to my surprise they were very tasty. Located next to Luxent hotel near to the landmark at Timog Avenue. If you are some where in this area and want to try Filipino food you may consider here.

Via mare is always packed whenever we pass by landmark. We chose this place to celebrate a farewell lunch for our expat boss who is quite selective of his Filipino food. Good thing he was impressed. The following items are the best: 1. Sundried tapa 2. Pusit 3. Luglug 4. Rellenong talong And of course, bibingka and puto bumbong!!! What... More

My friends and I would schedule meet-ups and shopping combined periodically and Via Mare (Landmark)has proven to be the right place for this sort of activities. Other than that, my balikbayan friends get to satisfy their cravings for Filipino food and delicacies (puto bumbong and salabat)whenever I take them to this restaurant. Pricing is reasonable and their food tastes really... More

Via Mare has been our favorite place to dine or have snacks. We like their palabok,bibingka and puto bungbong. We also like their tortang alimasag which comes with rice and fried lumpia ubod. It is a complete meal and the service is large enough to share with companion. Truly, it is a good respite after going around shopping. Highly recommended.

Well illustrated menu with pictures for the first timer diner who has never tasted Filipino cooking. Most dishes comes with a portion of rice, so check with waiters if you don't want to be over-fed. Try the local desserts for merienda ( tea) time. A little bit on the pricey side considering the food is average but you get a... More

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
