Note: The resto is open for Makati Garden Club members only...
There's a secret garden resto at the Makati Garden Club by Chef Sandra Fernandez of Savoy Bistro fame. They serve the Chef's French & European dish specialties and authentic European bread amidst a homey, girly ambiance.
This is a nice place for great conversations over a good meal. Check out Maria Luisa's Secret Garden Room...
The only way to get here is to drive along EDSA southbound and turn right into Ayala, turn right again at the first corner (Recoletos), then go straight until you see the Makati Garden Club premises on your right.
(Parking is available in front of Makati Garden Club.)
The salad was presented with an abundance of fresh greens and generous servings of smoked salmon. I love the combination of salmon and sweet mango slices with the mustard sauce.
This was also good but with a bit of salty, malansa aftertaste.
You dip pieces of bread into a cheese-cream dip which has a diluted consistency and not too rich.
To date, this is the only mussel dish I like because of the good quality of the mussels and the smooth wine & cream sauce, which is a better alternative to cheese & butter.
For us meat lovers, we enjoyed our lamb which was cooked well and served in four pieces for sharing.
The desserts are simple but very good. A nice way to end a lovely European meal.
I love the idea that this place is still hidden from the hustle and bustle of Makati, serving fresh European breads and interesting French-European cuisine. The place is girly-romantic, perfect for a girl's night out or a baby shower meet.
Try the salad, cheese fondue, the breads, and the main entrees like the lamb or the steaks. (If you've been here, let me know of any particular dish you'd also recommend).
It's a nice and cozy place to be with friends and family when you're in the Makati area. Budget P1,000/head.
