Having seen this place recommended in our guide book we went here for a late afternoon meal. The interior of the restaurant is lovely and has a real old fashioned charm, but sadly that's one of the only good things I can say about our trip. The service was indifferent bordering on surly, and we were made to sit at... More

It's a very small restaurant and it shows its age. (Let's say it's a hole in the wall kinda place) but the age makes it really special. Not the best place to take a lady out on a blind date however the food makes it up for it. However it's not the quality of the food that makes me want... More

Tapas were very dissapointing the Octopus salad (which only consisted of tons of garlic and some slized octopus) and the Prawns were drowning in oil but completely flavorless. The prawns had black spots and when peeling them half of their body sticked to the shell - strong signs of very inferior product quality. The seafood paella was overcooked and the... More

A rather, but cozy restaurant specializing in Spanish dishes, such as tapas, paella, etc. although not all dishes are really Spanish. One typical dessert is missing: crema catalana. They have leche flan instead which is a typical Filipino dish. Try the tapas, e.g. the mejillones (clams) with garlic, they are delicious.

Detotiated. The one in makati is much better. Ambience became poor and service was anything else than before. Food also detoriated a lot.. a pity. Dont eat paella, overcooked and almost burnt. The paella in makati was very good.

Really good Spanish restaurant in Manila. The tapas, chorizo, and garlic mushroom are really good. The paella is also a must-try. Very commendable!

Ambiance is quite cozy despite the place being a bit old and rustic. Service is good and a good place to have a relaxing dinner.

Casa Armas is a great Spanish Restaurant in Manila. If you are hankering for authentic Spanish paella and tapas with good Spanish wine in this corner of the world, it is one of the top places to go. Always great in food and service. The ambiance is great too. Just be prepared to pay more. Cheers!

It is relaxing and this restaurant attracts both travelers and locals. We enjoyed tapas and paella. All excellent in the standard of Asia. Wine is also fine. Small complaint is too much garlic. One may ask the chef to reduce the amount.

You wanna try seafood in a Spanish way? Go and visit Casa Armas restaurant. It has several best dishes and I will never eat at Casa Armas without my favorites, Paella Negra, Gambas and their Tapas, Alcachofas.
