small restaurant (12-15 tables) with very good service and creative cuisine. Sala propose a degustation menu as well as a la carte. As I was alone I went for a la carte and wasn't disappointed. A bit pricey (considering that we are in Manila) but worth the money.

Good location adjacent to Greenbelt.

Average reception.
Nice interior for about 32 people.
High tensile strength starched napkins. Willing service staff.

Ordered the tasting menu.

Burrata - struggled to offer freshness, creaminess and taste (definitely no burrata at time of serving)

Lobster and Fennel Tortellini w/ Tarragon Bisque - served w/o spoon, well balanced

Grilled Octopus - Bland purees; chewy Octopus parts; the accompanying fried chorizo unfortunately a flawed idea

Veal fillet - well balanced flavours, very good.

Panna Cotta - if you order it as part of the tasting menu it's about 40% smaller (confirmed by service staff); ginger crumbs lacked ginger; fennel panna cotta was very good

Sala is for me the best place to dine on special occasions, nice wine list, good food and great service.
It's absolutely recommendable to have a special dinner here, private or business.

Nice menu, always a few attractive specials and consistent quality are guaranteed.

It's is also nice to see some of the waiters there that already worked at the time the restaurant was still at Nakpil Street in Malate. I guess they partly own the place.

We were looking for a nice fine dining restaurant for our final night in the Philippines and saw that Sala was well rated. We were not disappointed.
We booked on a Sunday night - not a popular night to dine in Manila as the restaurant was empty, however everything from the service to the food was perfect.

We ordered the tasting menu and a bottle of French red wine, and the food was impeccable. All the flavours were balanced so well and the tasting menu was the perfect amount of food and a great selection. They also didn't rush through the dishes and gave us time and also unlimited bread for all our dishes. The staff were attentive but not on top of us during the meal which was perfect.

The wine was excellent - not cheap that's for sure (the cheapest bottle was about $75aud) but we didn't expect anything less. The veal was so tender, the pannacotta was one of the creamiest I've ever had, the octopus was so fresh and delicious, the seafood tortellini was just perfect and so flavoursome. Everything was excellent. Couldn't fault a thing.

Definitely a restaurant for a special occasion or if you're looking for a nice meal out. You won't be disappointed.

A fine address for a romantic dinner or a business lunch and certainly one of the most accomplished restaurants in Makati. A nicely decorated and rather bright place with a good menu, serving a creative selection of good dishes. A favourite of mine is the degustation menu that comes with an excellent selection of wines. A place then where I like to come back quite frequently.
