Cafe Adriatico

If the history of Philippine restaurants were to be written down, Café Adriatico will be mentioned quite often. It was considered to have been the restaurant that started the bistro culture in the country. And though it was conceived as just a cozy place where friends meet to dine and talk about the day's news, the café became the IN-Place to be, where Manila's bright minds and stars hobnobbed with each other as kibitzers looked on.

Cafe Adriatico was the very first restaurant created by LJC Group founder, Larry J. Cruz. It became known for its menu of international and Filipino dishes, and its old-world charm. For over 40 years, Cafe Adriatico is considered a landmark at the Remedios Circle. The brand continues to gain a loyal following among diners in its branches in Gateway Mall and SM Mall of Asia.
