Lunch at Harbor View Restaurant

We’re so busy cleaning our house and packing our stuff for our staycation last Saturday. We left the house at 12NN without eating lunch because we’re so excited to go to Manila Hotel. But before checking-in, we had late lunch at Harbor View Restaurant, it is 2 minutes away from Manila Hotel. 

My husband suggested this place and warned me that there is no aircon in that restaurant. I lived in Manila for few years but I have no idea about this restaurant. This is already an old restaurant in Manila Bay, it is like a floating restaurant where you can enjoy amazing view of the sea. 

Upon entering the restaurant, you will see a lot of frames with pictures of famous celebrities and politicians who dined there. The place is very simple but you will love it because of the ambiance. Who needs an aircon kung ang hangin hangin naman. I was worried about the smell of the sea but that time, wala naman malansa na amoy. 

The staff ushered us to our table and gave us the menu. We ordered Lechon Kawali P295, Grilled Squid P240, rice and drinks.

Price is reasonable because the serving is not that big. We all enjoyed our meal, Lechon Kawali is crunchy and tender and Grilled Squid is flavorful and tender too. 

Service is good too and they even returned our stuff. My husband left his cap on the chair and hinabol kami sa parking ng staff nila just to give the cap. Kudos to the staff. 

I will definitely go back to this place, maybe mas ok ang view pag sunset. The only downside of this place is the parking fee. Yes, may P40 fee sa parking.

  1. What a nice view! Dining by the sea is very relaxing! I'm glad you guys enjoyed the food and the dining experience!

  2. I never tried to dine in Manila Bay open view, hopefully ma try din. The ambiance looks good ang mahal ng parking :-)

  3. I don't like that people feel free to piss in Manila Bay. You can smell that urine smell in the restaurant. It is very off-putting.
