restaurant review: Barbara’s

i have been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a long while.

they’re located right in front of the San Agustin Church in Intramuros. ambiance is very old manila. i have considered to have my reception here (but it was too small) and would have got them as caterer if my current venue would allow it (they don’t).

i guess i expected a lot from this restaurant. and i was terribly disappointed.

my seafood pasta was very oily and really fishy. al’s lasagna tasted like mashed potatoes. there were tiny cockroaches crawling on the seat next to mine. and the waiter casually took the chair aside when we pointed it out. and he wasn’t at all apologetic, like it was a normal occurence. service was poor, you had to wait a while to get noticed even when there were only less than 5 tables occupied. there was an ant in my iced tea, which i dismissed (because there’s no getting away from them).

such a pity. i really loved the ambiance. but i would not go back there even if somebody is paying for my meal.
