METRONOME is a modern French restaurant in Makati by Joël Robuchon-trained Chef Miko Calo, RJ Galang of Bakere/Man Eat Manila fame, Restaurateur Elbert Cuenca and Alain Borgers, formerly from the Shangri-La Group.
This is the much-anticipated restaurant opening of 2019 in Manila because of the rave reviews about Chef Miko’s food in the underground supper clubs, not to mention the place was featured in Chris Dwyer’s CNN article—Great plates: 15 new restaurants to try in 2019.
Is it all just hype? Or is this the best French restaurant Manila has been waiting for?

First Things First
The concept of the restaurant was already brewing in Chef Miko Calo’s mind ever since 2014. When the time came to open the business, she already knew what she wanted for her signature restaurant—French blue, gold and Filipino wood themed interiors, modern French cuisine and the name of the restaurant.
The name of the restaurant was inspired by the metronome, a guiding instrument by a musician to practice with a pre-determined beat/minute. For Chef Miko, French cooking techniques are her metronome to execute the food with precision and deliciousness.
Make sure to reserve Metronome’s banquet tables (good for 5-6) with a backdrop of sleek interiors by Noel Bernardo.
The banquet dining set up reminds me of Bob Bob Ricard, the iconic London Soho restaurant famous for its Beef Wellington.
Make sure to reserve the private dining room (good for 12) for the family gourmand’s special celebrations.
