“Burgos Circle, this little bubble of residences-offices-restaurants in the middle of Manila, isn’t short of places with great pizza. It’s certainly not lacking in terms of places that have great chicken. What it’s in short supply of are respectable third-wave coffee houses. Frank and Dean hits three birds with one establishment stone: a restaurant that specialises in comfort food (pizza and chicken), and (finally) addressing the problem that great restaurants in the area do not necessarily have equally great coffee.”

“The great thing about Lemuria is that is isn’t just the ambiance that will lure you in and keep you coming back, but the food itself. I’ve been to restaurants with good food but regular ambiances and restaurants with amazing ambiances but regular food. Lemuria however sets itself apart with its beautiful garden and amazing menu.”

“This place doesn’t get much foot traffic, but that’s a shame because it serves excellent international food, mainly Italian dishes with even some Hawaiian fare as well… Their Calamari is outstanding and the pasta and pizza dishes are as close to authentic Italian as you can get in this country, but they were even better in the past. Their chicken and meat dishes are excellent as well, and they do a decent cheese platter.” -TheWhineGuy from TripAdvisor
