The place is overrated. Food is average, some dishes are really poorly done. Service is also average. No reason for anyone to go back there.

The food is still great. But if you have been to the Pasig branch, this one is not as unusually impressive and authentic looking.

Decided to give Cafe Juanita a try since the reviews were above-average. The ambiance was ok -- natural light, check; not crowded, check; quirky and fun without going over the top, check. We visited on a Sunday at lunch time and it was not crowded. Surprisingly, there were a lot of unoccupied tables. The staff were accommodating and friendly. There... More

I haven't had this much fun eating in a Filipino restaurant in a very long time. It just felt like I had a taste of Filipino heaven when I ate at Cafe Juanita a week ago. I've always liked Cafe Juanita back when the only branch they had was in Kapitolyo, Pasig. I remember trying their Corn Beef sinigang there... More

We decided to try cafe Juanita from friends recommendations. Like the other reviews, the portion is quite small for the price. I did find it expensive but the food are delicious. Would definitely recommend if you have the budget.

tried eating here just to be able to compare their kare-kare with Abe's in ATC. Though Abe's Klassik Kare-Kare was very good, I think Cafe Juanita's Kare-Kare was slightly better. The rice that I got at the time that I ordered Kare-Kare at Cafe Juanita was not-so-good though... kinda dry like the cheap variety served in office cafeterias. Rice was... More

My friends and I had a little get-together here last Christmas. The place was quite small, food portions were a bit small. Taste is good, though.

The food was actually very tasty. I especially liked the lumpia, sea bass, and the lengua. We noticed that their food tends to be on the sweet side, even their bagoong was sweet. The service was so-so, ambience was comfortable.

We ate here last march 2013. Parking space is not an issue. The venue is nice and romantic. The better part is their food. I love the way they cooked there bagnet, it is crunchy and you cannot taste the fats. So far for me it is the best. I also love the kare-kare specially the bagoong. Another one is... More

We had dessert here last night after a meal at the neighboring Con Gusto (which is still on soft opening, and a derivative of the popular Buon Giorno in Tagaytay). My husband, who is not really a fan of anything too sweet, almost single-handedly polished off their famous sticky toffee pudding with our after-dinner coffee. It's bread pudding drizzled with...
