Went here one Wednesday afternoon to check the place out. It's newly opened and is located a bit in the back of the Vito Cruz-Taft area. You have to go up a set of stairs to reach this place as it appears to be located on the rooftop of the building it's at. So no AC, open air. The place looks nice, although cramped. There are tall, wooden chairs and tables, a bar area, a wall with fake grass adorned with pictures and notes from guests, a few couches, etc. The place could accommodate a bunch of people, although it will get pretty tight.

When we went, night was already falling and the place transforms into this solid drinking place. Loud music was blaring into my ears from the speakers at the bar and groups at each table were talking and laughing loudly. Not my scene anymore haha #titasofmanila

I went through their menu - food and drinks were mostly in the 100-200 peso range or more. We settled on The Chillout Pizza (269 pesos) and their American Baby Back Ribs in the "partners in crime" serving which comes with two free sides for 369 pesos.

127829 The pizza was 14" and thin crust. It was made of pulled pork and this sweet tangy sauce. Basically it, I guess? And this is the one that has their name on it. I couldn't take it. It tasted too sweet and strong for me. However, the bf seemed to like it.

127830 For the ribs, I got the dirty rice and the rosemary potatoes as sides. Both sides were bland and were nothing special. Although I did like the ribs! It was flavorful and tender, although had to scrape off a bit of the sauce at times when it got to be too much. The servings were also big and could feed 3-4 people I think.

Service was kind of sucky, considering we were already near the bar area, where all the servers were hanging out. They were too busy rough housing to notice us several times throughout the night. They even forgot our requests during certain instances.

Last note, the place can be rented out and they offer event packages suited to your needs. You can just contact them to ask.

Overall, this place projects itself to be one of the newest, hippest resto bars in town, catered specifically for the students in the area. However, I do think they still have a bit of ironing out to do before they become truly established.

One Friday, since I did not want to get stuck in traffic I decided to go to Taft to eat dinner with workmates. Chillout Project near La Salle made me curious because the place looked so good as pictured in their FB or IG accounts.

Apparently, it looks a bit different during the night. I think it's best to visit them during the afternoon to appreciate its setup. It may be hot though, because they're on a rooftop with no ACs, just fans.

Food was okay. We ordered their Roast Chicken (one of the bestsellers) because they ran out of ribs and we had to wait til 8pm if we're really into them. I found the chicken toooo sweet. 128514 well actually both orders we had were unusually sweet. 128547 we also got the Chillout pizza which had not much toppings and lacked cheese. It was basically dough, some sweet sauce, a few strips of pulled pork rib meat, and some bell peppers? Not too sure because it was dark. 128514

Last, the sound system was too loud and the rowdy servers were always singing random songs. The singing - why was there karaoke? I thought the place was a bar? It would've been better i think if they had mixed pop or party songs playing on loop than their staff singing 'does the moonlight shine on FAARIS' yup, faris (paris). 128557128557128514128514128529
