There is a diverse array of food options in Manila, and the range can satisfy any craving whatsoever. The food is delectable and relatively affordable, and most restaurants possess good service and great ambiance. Dining is usually a pleasant experience in Manila.

The good dining places are concentrated in Malate, Makati, Ortigas and Quezon City, catering to urban professionals and partygoers. But in places like Intramuros and Chinatown, there are quaint restaurants worth seeking, and they are highly regarded for the exquisite quality of their meals.

For quick bites however, there is a whole crowd of fast food outlets in almost every corner of the city. Options include Jollibee, McDonald's, and KFC, among others. And if you wish to cook your own food marketplaces are present in every district. Aside from tasting a glimpse of Filipino everyday life, you are sure to save a great deal of money as well.

If you are a restauranteur based on the Philippines, feel free to add your own establishment to this list. You may even add a description of your restaurant.
