Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Ilustrado heartily continues a tradition of serving world-class Spanish-Filipino and Global cuisines to its discriminating patrons.
Serving heads of state, dignitaries and other luminaries such as the King and Queen of Spain (twice) along with local and foreign tourists, balikbayans and corporate clients allows Ilustrado to passionately promote the country’s best features – warm hospitality, wonderful food and beautiful culture.
Through the years, the Ilustrado brand has won a reputation for excellent cuisine and impeccable service in an exceptional destination setting at the heart of historic Intramuros in the City of Manila. Today, Ilustrado is a comforting haven for regular patrons, a beloved place for the romantics, a nostalgic venue for weddings, and a top-quality Filipino caterer for important events.
Visitors enjoy the Hispanic architectural design and old world interiors of the restaurant. It features a handsome Main Dining Room, a more casual Kuatro Kantos Bar and Café and a Garden Courtyard for al fresco dining. It also offers the grand Sinagtala Ballroom for big events as well as several function rooms for smaller meetings and parties.
The main draw for Ilustrado patrons, though, has always been the food. House favorites such as Paella Ilustrado, Callos Madrilena, Lengua con setas, and Adobong Bagnet with Prawns and Crab Fat keep people coming back. Memorable desserts such as Mango Jubilee with flambé presentation, the award-winning Baked Cheesecake and the most featured unique creation Sampaguita Ice Cream makes every visit interesting.
Ilustrado is also the premiere choice of corporate and VIP clients for special events catering. It brings its 25 years experience wherever it goes, whether serving the most intimate gatherings at home or the grandest special events in a ballroom. It is an accredited caterer in most of the major event venues around the Metro.
