In days of global brands, faceless corporations and international food chains there’s nothing more appetising than food which has its roots firmly in the local. Located along the historical General Luna street in Intramuros, Barbara's Restaurant evokes the charm and beauty of a bygone era. Walk into the main hall and experience the luxury of fine dining. With high ceilings and crystal chandeliers, the setting is a world-apart from your modern-day shopping mall restaurant. The dark interior is softened by candle light and the reflective sparkles emanating from the chandeliers. There is attention to detail in all aspects of this restaurant.
The restaurant's extravagant dinner buffet celebrates traditional Filipino recipes from the colonial times, but house specialties also include other European-inspired dishes (4 to 5 main dishes every evening, 2 to 3 desert choices). They serve the very best in authentic dishes, all of which is prepared freshly on the premises by their experienced and talented team of chefs. The buffet is packed full of flavour, using top ingredients and classic Filipino technique to form the modern approach to the enjoyment of food. This is fine-dining without it being stuffy.
MetroDeal gourmands can treat their stomachs to this culinary delight along with a 1 hour cultural dance show, that takes place from Mondays to Saturdays - a glimpse of Philippine Culture and Heritage through traditional dances and songs. So while you enjoy exquisite dishes such as the mouthwatering Roast Pork Loin, the delicious Chicken Flambé or some heavenly Cream Puffs as desert among others, you'll experience a fascinating ambience that will also guarantee you a visual feast.
