Rego's Cafe: Dinner Date

Few hours before going to the cinema house, my boyfriend and I decided to grab a decent dinner at one of the restaurants at The Peak. It's often chosen because of the relaxing atmosphere, amusing lights and fancy fountains. We ended up at Rego's Cafe because 1) we haven't been there yet and 2) we find the place really playful-looking and cozy.

The wooden furniture and the blue cloth gives a nautical feel. It can be a relaxing or a romantic place to dine. Instead of dining inside, we chose to eat at the tables outside to take advantage of the view at The Peak. It was a  good decision since the attendant took our order so we don't have to place our orders at the cashier. Moreover, they weren't really that accommodating and the service was too slow. At least, we get to entertain ourselves (by chatting) as they keep us waiting.

This is something I realized, my boyfriend keeps telling me this, that I should not buy something from a place that don't specialize it. I've read from other reviews that, Rego's are known for their pastas. If we have been knowledgeable about that, we should have ordered pasta over their rice meals.

Anyways, here's what we got for dinner.

 Rego's Pork Bellies P135.00

Beef Salpicao P150.00

Thanks to macro lens for making the food look appetizing. I expect a lot from a formal dining cafe but the presentation of the food doesn't seem to fit their restaurant type. The food that we ordered were too salty. If there will be a next time, we'd go for their pasta for them to reclaim the not-so-good-impression they got from us.

There you  go, the basic Rego's rice meals.
Taste - 3/5
Ambiance - 5/5
Service - 2/5
Price - 2/5
Overall Value - 3/5
