It has everything a creative foodie will love - good food, great ambience with pops of creative art pieces hanged on its walls. This Mediterranean-inspired bistro is perfect for people looking for a place to find relaxation in the heart of the bustling city of Makati.

Great place. Very nice interiors. We tried the Greek salad, Spanakopita, Souvlaki, and Panna Cota for dessert. They were all great. The dishes were all very nicely plated too. They also make their own breads. I liked the walnut bread the most. The 3 story place is spacious and very well appointed. Food lovers will definitely like this place.

MAKATI'S SECRET MEDITERRANEAN BISTRO BLEW MY TASTEBUDS AWAY - Nestled on busy Kalayaan St., this unassuming white building had always caught my eye as I drove past it countless times. When we finally found the time to step in for a proper meal, I immediately regretted not coming any sooner!
The stylish restaurant's white-washed interiors immediately put you at ease as you tuck into their menu of refined Mediterranean classics. This is definitely not another kebab stall! Fig strikes me as the prefect choice for a classy date or a fancy dinner with friends.
Your meal starts with a large tray of complimentary homemade bread, and we were allowed to choose as many slices as we wanted! It was such a treat because the breads were DIVINE! The 3 Must Try's are the kamote, the anise and the walnut bread. Each was baked perfectly soft and flavorful that couldn't help but ask if we could buy a loaf to take home - which we did!
It's not often that the bread basket sets a really high expectation for the rest of the meal but i'm happy to say that that main courses didn't disappoint!
ONION & SPINACH FLATBREAD (pictured) - the undisputed star of our meal was this interesting pizza twisted on both ends, the crust was toasted to absolute crisp and chewy perfection and it was the prefect base to the mind-blowing combination of sweet caramelized onions, earthy spinach and mushrooms and a hint of tartness from feta cheese. This pizza is so good I think I'll be dreaming about it tonight!
GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD - some consider this as nothing more than a side dish but the way Fig flavored every element made it stand out on it's own! The taste from that generous dollop of homemade pesto sauce on top of the vegetables is positively addicting!
SOUVLAKI - two tender pork skewers perfectly roasted and served with a home-baked pita bread, this dish has a fun build-it-yourself element that just makes the whole experience that much more special
MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN SAUSAGE - homemade sausages are known to pack a punch of flavor and this one is an absolute knockout! Each cut is Juicy with just the right combination of spices!
VEGETARIAN SHAKSHOUKA - a special brunch offering of tart tomatoes and feta cheese served with a perfectly poached egg in the middle. Come is a Large serving that you won't be able to get enough of
OVERALL a quality dining experience! Fig is one of the few new restaurants where you can tell there was a lot of thought, preparation and meticulous care in every dish! Worth hitting the car breaks for!

Pretty place on Kalayaan Ave with a nice bar. We came for lunch after reading reviews from other sites and I must say I was disappointed. We had the spanakopitas and a green salad for starters. The spanakopitas were good and served differently as it had a cucumber sauce on top with some salad greens on the side. Unfortunately the sauce made it a bit soggy. Mite be better to have the sauce on the side. The green salad was a mixture of greens with some vinaigrette splashed on it so no big deal. For our mains we had the Moroccan chicken sausage which was served with a bit of lettuce and a smudge of mustard for about P390. Additional sides are at P200 each (for fries or mashed potatoes etc). The sausage was so salty and dry it was almost impossible to eat it alone so some mashed potatoes are a must (fail!). The chicken kabob was ok but a bit on the dry side too. The pita bread it came with was equally dry that we couldn't even roll it without it falling to pieces. The bread they had on the side was equally disappointing. The pandesal (which wasn't moist either) tasted the same as their sourdough! Plus they were very slow in preparing the food (even if there were only 8 guests in the whole place) that my mom already threatened to walk out! Based on this experience i don't think I'll be back. Sorry, had high hopes for this place.
