Dinner at Gallery by Chele

Gallery by Chele is previously known as Gallery Vask. This fine-dining restaurant started in the year 2013 and ceased operations last January 13, 2018 for renovation. After few months of improvement, they finally opened their doors again last May 22, 2018. The restaurant has a bar, dining area, and lounge. Chef Chele Gonzales and Chef Carlo Villaflor rebranded the restaurant. Now, they are not just offering Spanish cuisine but they also use local ingredients in their menu.

Gallery Vask was part of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant for two straight years so it is no doubt that this is not an ordinary restaurant. My husband was fortunate because he was able to dine at Gallery by Chele on their second day of opening. When he went there, the restaurant was busy maybe because of some media who are doing an interview and taking pictures.


They had team dinner at Gallery by Chelle and Chef Chele Gonzales even toured them at stvdio lab. The Stvdio Lab is a test kitchen and venue for collaborators. They say that they make the restaurant looks laid-back and casual but for us, it still looks a fine dining restaurant. hehehe! The place was not crowded so you will have a privacy here, make sure that you book an appointment.

When I looked at the photos, I did not see anything special. Yes, the presentation is different and the food looks new to me. So I asked my husband kung okay ba kinain niya kasi parang wala ko type except sa Main Course. He said, “Ang sarap kaya, small serving pero busog kami”. Panget picture ko kasi medyo madilim sa restaurant. He said the food and wine are excellent. Service is excellent. It was a memorable dining experience for him, every bite is a different experience.

My husband doesn’t just give an excellent grade so I was really surprised when he said “Excellent”. He always says, “Okay lang” or “Good”. Now I know why they are part of the 50 Best Restaurant in Asia. The price is steep but I will consider this for a special occasion.
