Metro Manila · Le Café Curieux
Expats from France love this place, and they have every reason to do so. At Le Café Curieux you'll find everything you would expect from French savoir vivre: delicious food, great drinks, art, music, a cozy bar and a beautiful garden café.
Le Café Curieux offers authentic French cuisine at unbeatable prices. Try for example L'emince au Bleu (Strips of Tender Beef with Blue Cheese Sauce, 365 Pesos) or the resto's bestseller Les gambas flambeés au Pastis (King Prawns Flamed in Pastis, 255 Pesos). Combine it with one of the six fancy salads (300 Pesos each) and finish your dinner with a traditional dessert, such as mousse au chocolat or crème caramel. The restaurant also has a weekly changing 'Dish of the Day' and a 'Catch of the Day'.
At the bar you find a nice selection of international liquors and a 'French corner' with ricard, pastis, absinthe, and other drinks. But the highlight are the house rums: ten huge jars lined up behind the bar, filled with brown rum and either whole bananas, coconuts, oranges, coffee beans, bits of pineapple, or other ingrediences – a must try.
