Only the original Mario's can do the best ever Oysters Rockefeller.

PSA: Mario's will be open tomorrow for lunch and dinner! Their doors won't be open for breakfast though.

I'm a bit sick today so asked for warm water and hot calamansi juice. Calamansi is not listed in their menu, but apparently it's available. When you ask for warm water, they'll serve you warm water. Not lukewarm, but warm. They have pitchers ready for serving.

Our family got a paella for sharing. The picture clearly shows how packed it is. Lots of seafood and served really warm.

That's it for now. Take care everyone and happy Sunday to all of your families! :)

Happy father’s day! #latepost Special events, such as father’s day and mother’s day, are triggers that this place will be packed. Good thing, since we frequent this place often, every Sunday to be exact, is that they reserved seats for our family. The place was bustling when we got there, with two families still waiting to be seated at a little over 8 pm. I think the high traffic took its toll on the waiters as it was quite visible that they were a bit spent but nevertheless were still trying their best.

We all ordered steaks this time around. That is a sign that nobody had a late merienda that day. My favorite from their steaks is the filet mignon, but I got the peppered steak just because I wanted to be simple last Sunday. We were all satisfied with our steaks and each steak order was cooked to perfection (according to our preference).

We don’t usually get dessert, but this was a special day so we got two orders of Mango Jubilee. One of the competitive advantages of their top desserts is that they prepare them in front of you. This gives an opportunity for social media artists out there to snap away and post. The mango jubilee is our favorite dessert from all their options. Its quantity is just right and the combination of the cold ice cream and the hot mango is perfect.

That’s it for now. At sa lahat ng magigiting na ama diyan, nagpupugay ako sa inyo! Stay mahusay!

I’ve been meaning to write this review for ages as my family would often have our weekly dinners at Mario’s. We’re almost a constant fixture in this restaurant that they would usually reserve a table for the 6 of us. What I absolutely love about Mario’s is how well we can converse in the restaurant despite fiery presentations of culinary prowess (pictured above), hearty birthday songs sung by waiters to unsuspecting celebrants and throngs of people eager to stuff themselves with Spanish fare. At the end of the day, my main goals for eating out are the conversations, the stories we share, studies and articles we can pick apart and apply in our lives and ultimately to deposit in each other’s emotional bank account. Appreciating good food is always a tool for that, but not necessarily the bottomline.

I would highly recommend their Caesar Salad (P260) because their salad dressing is the best and their Oysters Rockefeller (P350) is their signature appetizer. For Steak, I would always order Peppered (P630) because of its strong flavor. For dessert, I would go for the Mango Jubilee (P375)– vanilla ice cream topped with brandy infused mango. Plus, the showmanship of preparing it is pretty cool.

On the issue with parking along Tomas Morato, they always have the valet service available so that you can immediately take your seats. They sometimes have a singer and pianist available on special occasions. Its all pretty fancy. I highly, highly recommend this place! #henrysinstaxgiveaway

As I’ve said in a previous entry, we almost always eat here on Sundays. It has reached a point wherein they reserve a table for our family every Sunday without us prompting them. Given our loyalty to this place, we also get high quality service. Although, I notice with other customers that they provide great service as well.

Since we go here every Sunday, we practically know the ins and outs of the menu. With this being said, during our last visit, we all noticed that there was something new with the menu. They updated the chef’s specials, seen on the first page of the menu, by taking out some dishes and including new ones.

My dish of choice that night was something I haven’t tried before which was the Three Mushroom with Black Truffle Oil for 295 Php. When it arrived, since I didn’t read the menu well, I was surprised that it had plenty of bacon bits in it. I liked the pasta very much, with the bacon being a nice accent to the dish. The serving was plentiful, and I wasn’t able to finish it. I had the rest packed for takeaway and reserved it for breakfast the next day.

In the spirit of trying something new that night, I urged my siblings to try the dessert crepe instead of our usual mango jubilee. We got one order of the dessert crepe. It was prepared in front of us. It was not your usual crepe, and it was served in 4 pieces. I liked it very much, and I thought it was good for 4 people already. For a crepe it was quite heavy and filling. So I guess this visit of ours was a jackpot in terms of value for money.

My other favorites in case you are wondering would be their filet mignon and blue marlin, although always ask the waiter if the fish was just delivered to ensure the optimal quality experience.

That’s it for now. Take care everyone!

My family always eats here during Sundays because it has a great atmosphere for conversation. The servers are very friendly and would always make us feel welcome. Food is great as well! I always look forward to eating in this restaurant 128522

Ordered the oyster rockefeller for our appetizer. It's a bit pricey for a first jobber like me but value for money-wise it's 128076🏼. (Of course i ordered it with my family). Looks good, tastes even better. It works for me even without the calamansi.

Since we often go here, a good tip when ordering their blue marlins or salmons is to ask the waiter when the goods arrived. If they arrived recently, or even better the day before, the taste of their fish meals shoot up. :) so i only order their fish meals only when i find out that the fish delivery occurred recently. :) haha

If you want quiet time in this place, better to go during dinnertime as sunday lunchtime is when their buffet is available which usually comes with birthday celebrations or huge reunions.

Anyway, that's it. Take care everyone! :)

My family goes here every Sunday! Every Sunday! Haha yeah, you can call us men and women of habit. So we have our Sunday dinner here every week mainly because it's a very conducive place for talking and catching up. It's really quiet, not crowded. Very relaxing. Also, they have very good service (but that might be because we're there every Sunday, yes i know i won't say it again)

Food is great. To be honest i think i've tried everything on their menu already except for the drinks haha and i was never disappointed. I guess that's one the reasons we keep going back as well, food is good. My go to orders would be the filet mignon and the caesar salad. :) yum! Every now and then, if we're not yet full, we order the mango jubilee which they prepare in front of you. :)

Never had problems with parking because of their valet service. Usually parking is a problem for tomas morato restaurants.

Anyway, it's a very nice restaurant which i recommend to you guys. Could be considered a date place for special occasions :)

Take care everyone! :)

Went back despite the fact that j was disappointed before and was glad they picked up their game. The buffet choices were limited but very good. We went away stuffed. The only x marks they earned this time was the desserts and coffee. For some strange reason, the cakes were tasteless or a bit off. Can't just Tim it down at the moment. The coffee, sadly, was tasteless. Still, I went there for meal and the meal dos not disappoint. I hope they keep on improving to get back to where they were a decade ago.

We were able to try their cheap lunch buffet before. Celebrated my dads birthday here. The place never disappoints since vallet is ready to help and friendly staff. Ordered the Broiled Salmon (P540.00), Filet Minon (P690.00), Chicken Parmesan (P375.00), and New York Cheesecake (P185.00). The chicken had some crunchy portions and loaded with cheese. Salmon was very filling and the steak just perfection. Definitely one of the fairly priced steak places around.

Only minor tribulation we encountered was being in the second floor trying to get a waiter when we needed one. We followed up the complimentary for birthday celebrants cake three times. The 12%VAT is huge as well. Overall, the place was just filled with tradition, quality food and a complimentary father's day mug care of Mario's. What more can one ask for?

It's Valentine's Day :) so they have special offerings for their set menu. I got the steak. It comes with a tomato soup (not in the picture) and a panna cotta for dessert. Not bad for P998.00. They even give away a mug of cookies. All for the lady guests :D

Eating at Mario's will always lead to a solid experience, today's meal was no different. The Rockefeller oysters were huge, packed with flavor and was a treat to eat. I must've had more than half the plate. The entrees are good for sharing, but you really wouldn't want to share. My salpicado was cooked a perfect medium well, tender chunks of beef full of garlic on a wonderful bed of garlic rice that soaks up the beef's juices. Even the dalandan juice was a treat with its sweet, citrus flavor that is just so refreshing. Definitely a solid lunch.

This place has been my family's favorite restaurant for decades!! 128522

We decided to eat here last night on the spur of the moment, good thing we were able to get a table for 10++ people. I usually love their lengua and last night it was good but I think they forgot the sauce?? Hahaha it was still good nonetheless. Other must-order dishes are the chicken parmigiana, crispy shrimp for appetizers, salpicon de mar y tierra, and their steak!

A testament to how reliable this place is is how their waiters are still the same from 5++ years ago!! The guy making the mango jubilee is the same guy I remember making it when I was a kid hehe.

Order their mango jubilee and you won't be disappointed!! It has 3 kinds of liqueur, mangoes, cinnamon, vanilla and vanilla ice cream 128588128149 SO GOOD. It's consistently delicious- and the way they make it is entertaining too! 128069

I like this place for its food, ambience and service. It's a nice place to dine in with friends as it is not crowded here. A lot of places in Morato are quite crowded or noisy so I like going here for a nice quiet dinner or to meet up with friends.

Service here is excellent. The staff members are all very polite and friendly. Food does not take long to prepare as well.

On this particular day, however, my french onion soup was cooked too sweet. There was very little broth and there were too much caramelized onions making the soup too sweet.

The steak ala pobre was delicious. It was tender and juicy and cooked just right - medium.

The salmon I ordered was also good. It was a large serving of salmon served with vegetables and mashed potatoes. It tasted fresh and I really enjoyed eating it.

My friend ordered the callos. It was good but I would not recommend ordering that if you are here as while it did not taste bad, it was pretty ordinary.

The best part was the canonigo we had for dessert. It was soo good. It was creamy and I thoroughly enjoyed eating it.
