When Dining Inside A Museum: Romulo Cafe

Last night, the Zuellig Family Foundation held its annual Christmas Party at the Romulo Cafe in Makati. It was my first time to step inside Romulo Cafe but it was not as intimidating as some high class restos are. It is definitely a highly recommended place to dine or hang out with family and friends, whether you are talking about the most trivial things in life or closing a business deal. Romulo Cafe is named after the famous Filipino diplomat, Carlos P. Romulo. History class would teach us that Romulo was the first President of the United Nations General Assembly. It is owned by the granddaughter of the diplomat and the idea was not only to share good food but also good lessons in history.


Upon entering the restaurant, one would not miss the many framed pictures highlighting the many moments in the life of Carlos Romulo. The second floor appears to be almost like a museum. The maze like pattern of the wall paper creates a contemporary atmosphere but the comfortable sofas and pillows gives the place a sense of home. Being a history buff myself, I could not help but tour the place around and hop from one huge picture to another, reading the captions relating to historical occasions in Romulo's life. Even the menus were designed like a history book featuring not only the delicacies of the restaurant but also facts and snapshots of Carlos Romulo and his family.







The food was also great. It was said that most of the dishes in the menu were recipes of the wife of Carlos Romulo whose huge beautiful picture would welcome guests as they step into the second floor of the restaurant.

It is definitely highly recommended. The Romulo Cafe is located along Jupiter Street, corner Comet, in Bel-Air, Makati.

I can't imagine a museum and a restaurant in one place. Nevertheless, it compliments based on your article and the pictures.

It is like coffee, 2-in-1. Museum na, restaurant pa. I like the design of the wall, a black and white maze.

Love the matching, walls and cushions, elegant.   I hope the food is as good as the restaurant looks, though.
