Tha smokin' bbq chicken was tender and juicy, nicely marinated. The pinakbet was perfect. Try their alcomix drink, vodka with pineapple juice and apple juice. Reasonable price.

For a restaurant that is part of the Bistro Group, this place is a bit...cheap. I'm not saying cheap, as in "mura," or less expensive; I'm saying cheap, as in, "ang cheap mo ha!"

The food is served in wooden plates or bowls, with banana leaves. The interiors of the place lacked...something. Like it was too sparse and too "hilaw." It didn't have the same classy feel as the other Bistro restaurants such as Village Tavern, Bulgogi Brothers and the Stock Market.

This place used to be in the spot where Fish and Co used to be (also another Bistro restaurant). Maybe they're trying to venture into Filipino food? Well, they didn't do such a good job. 128530

As for the food: we ordered sisig rice, a big bowl for Php 245, and 4 pieces of chicken BBQ to share for Php 535. So, what, each piece of chicken cost Php 133++??! Mehhh. It didn't even taste that good. It was just chicken BBQ! 128545

Not really worth it, in my opinion.

This Bistro Group Resto replaced Fish and Co. outlet in Greenbelt 3. It's BBQ and Pinoy fusion.

Food Quality - chicken BBQ is tasty and tender. They separated the meat from the bone to ensure that the chicken is well cooked and without blood.I like their concept of adding Pinoy side dishes (choice of gising gising, pinakbet, ginisang patola, etc) to the BBQ.
Gising gising is ok but fails in comparison to that of Abe and Recipes...

Ambience - clean and cozy

Service - fast and engaging wait staff

Ave. check - P300

For a restaurant serving local dishes, this one is quite disappointing. We ordered 3 dishes --

PAKO SALAD - too oily. Like it was soaked in oil.

MONGGO SOUP - nice touch to add crispy chitcharon bits but it was just too salty. Even with rice.

LECHON KAWALI - the skin was makunat and the dish was flavorless. Thank god for Mang Tomas.

Really disappointing, especially from a Bistro Group resto. I hope they get to fix the recipes. Or develop new ones.

The upside, excellent service and food came out quickly. Would've been better though if the food was good.

Grilled pigskin - yummy, very hot
Sisig rice - loved it! Also very hot.
Sinigang sa miso (salmon) - not hot at all, but it was good
Chicken BBQ - yummy; not hot
Turon 2.0 - this was the star of the night. Loved it!

... the moment you step in, you'd feel the warm, friendly & attentive staff. They make you feel comfortable & settle in to their nice newly opened resto. (Opened on March 6)
We tried their Kuhol sa Gata which is the bomb! 10084128077IT!!! Sauce palang & it's ulam na. Speechless while calmly prying the little critters out. Goes well with our sisig rice, the pork BBQ & the smokin' BBQ chicken. Try also their Granny & the Greenstalk & Juice Almighty drink to wash them down. Afterwards we had their Turon. Will definitely come back to try the rest of their dishes. Keep it up!

Had dinner here with M last Tuesday after her overtime at work. The place looked nice but we hated the logo (Art Director rants), haha.

The staff were very friendly and attentive but the food took too long. Hmm, probably because it was grilled? Not sure. Anyway, the grilled liempo and tuna belly tasted great! It was cooked perfectly and it was really tasty (kahit walang sawsawan). Oh and the plating was nice too. I think it was a little bit expensive though. I'm sure you can eat great grilled food somewhere more affordable.

Overall, it was a nice dinner... but I still hate their logo. |

We ordered the Pork Sisig wrap, stuffed laing, tuna belly, aligue rice and caramelized banana for dessert. The Pork sisig wrap is indeed a must-try and as well as the aligue rice! What I like about their tuna belly is that it is juicy and it's not dry. For the dessert, my favorite is still the Turon 2.0.
