San Juan Restaurants: 3 reviews and 3 photos


This is not an Italian restaurant It a serve good pasta Conti, the restaurant features an eclectic mix of Filipino, European and a few Japanese dishes, along with sumptuous pastries and desserts, the house specialty. The simple decor is highlighted by a glass-enclosed garden. If you haven't eaten at this place, you're missing a lot. The food is great, service is number #1 and the owners are very friendly. try this restaurant. Their pastry shop is to die for, especially their Mango bravo (meringue, fresh mango slices whipped cream and chocolate filling) Their mango bravo cakes cost Php695 (US$15) for a whole cake that about 7 inches in height and 10 inches in diameter, they can feed a lot of people.. Worth every penny. Just make sure you either make a reservation or come early as lines can get quite long for a table. It is the only bakeshop I know that has a full line of meringue cake concoctions, but Conti?s meringue is different. You will enjoy the crunch outside and the soft texture inside. Airy and crunchy; isn?t that a combination which is hard to imitate? I bake cake and I should know.

Favorite Dish: The Baked Salmon is delish and is absolutely great value for money. Mango Bravo is out of this world chicken pie it was really good the crust was so flaky and buttery, you could feel the pastry sheets playing inside your mouth. The real butter complements the rich chicken and vegetable mixture. The chicken pie is so tender and rich, not at all like the regular "empanadas" you see in other bakeshops. It?s so rich that you can see oil spots on the paper or in the box that it is placed in. Truly, it is pure, honest-to-goodness home-baked chicken , variants come in different flavors: there?s embutido, ham and cheese, and tuna; and they come in different shapes to distinguish them from one another.
