Old Vine Grille Never Gets Old

Old Vine Grille is my default choice whenever my office friends let me decide where to eat during our frequent lunch-outs. Offering continental dishes and situated alongside its sister restaurant Kuse (which offers Filipino cuisine), Old Vine is the best restaurant at the McKinley Hill Piazza and is my absolute favorite.

Its rustic wooden interiors set a very classy atmosphere amidst casual dining. I have no idea if it’s supposed to be a formal dining place, but since I am friends with almost all the staff there, I really don’t care. I have already tried majority of what’s on their menu, and I think the best are the Pan-fried Garoupa Fillet in Lemon-Butter Sauce (part of their Executive Lunch promo), Stir-fried Seafood Paella, Marinated Salmon Carpaccio, Beef Salpicao Fried Rice, and Steak, Cheese and Asparagus.


Executive Lunch: Pan-fried Garoupa Fillet in Lemon-Butter Sauce
Stir-fried Seafood Paella (solo P250, large P430)
Marinated Salmon Carpaccio, P260
Beef Salpicao Fried Rice
Steak, Cheese, and Asparagus, P325

Sometimes they offer lunch buffets for only P350 and the selection is a mix of items from Old Vine and Kuse. Before, they had a Pasta-All-You-Can promo for only P200 and being the pasta junkie that I am, I insisted that we went there every day.


Executive Lunch: Steak and Pasta Combo
Three-cheese Lasagna

For dinner, it’s best to try their steak dishes and pair them up with wine. They have an extensive assortment of alcoholic beverages as well, so sometimes I gulp down some dry martini before I start dinner. They also serve cheap beer during Happy Hour.


Herb-crusted US Pork Chops

In general, I find Old Vine an ideal place to have long dinners with friends while chilling to some drinks. Flavorful food, friendly staff, elegant ambiance – what could possibly be better?

Chocolate Fudge, P150
Executive Lunch: Babyback Ribs
Fish and Chips basket
