Conti’s (Upper Ground Floor, Al Fresco Area, Robinsons Magnolia)

Date visited: September 2013

What we ate:

Chicken Barbecue and Grilled Pork Chops

Taste = 4/5

–          The Chicken Barbecue meat was very tender and juicy. It was clear that they marinated the chicken very well. The atchara (pickled green papaya and carrots) was the perfect side to the sweet, salty and a little spicy Chicken Barbecue. The sour taste really enhanced the Pinoy style Chicken Barbecue and Java rice. The Grilled Pork Chops were relatively large. One of the chops was cooked very well but the other one was a little bit overcooked as it was on the tough side. The sauce tasted deliciously creamy and it was not your usual gravy. What I liked most about the chops was the deliciously grilled fat layer, which didn’t taste disagreeable compared to your usual pork chops.

Service = 2.5/5

–          We have been to this branch multiple times and to be fair, this branch is very consistent: very consistent in providing slow service, that is. The dishes took too long to cook and serve plus you have to talk to several waiters just to get water (they don’t provide water by default). This is if you can even call their attention fast enough before they turn their heads the other way. At least they were smiling and they seemed happy.

Ambience = 4/5

–          The place is located at an odd corner of Robinsons Magnolia where you can only access this place by going out of the mall and risking getting wet whenever it rains. The dining area was quite small and it was full when we were there so I thought twice before I left my seat to go to the comfort room. On the positive side, it was bright inside and conducive to dining with parents.

Value for money = 3.5/5

–          The quality and taste of their food and their ambience were fine. Unfortunately, their service hasn’t improved at all.

      The place was really nice to eat with relatives or friends if you don’t mind their semi-cramped space. And who doesn’t like BBQ, right? Hehehe. Hope your weekend was great as well! 🙂

    I have only eaten at Conti’s once. I ordered steak and didn’t find anything special to their steak. Not sure if I’d go back there because service in there is indeed slow.

      We just come here often for their Mango Bravo as take-out and seldom eat here because of their service. I really hope this kind of service is isolated in this branch only.

We want to hear from you
