Atelier 317: Secret Resto in Makati

We all know it's quite a pain to dine out on V-day in the metro together with hundreds of other couples trying to squeeze in a nice dinner for two on a busy day.  I just did not want that.

So last Valentines Day, I looked for a quiet and nice restaurant far from the places crowded with lovers.  I simply Googled secret restaurant in Makati and found Atelier 317, a small fine dining restaurant hidden in the outskirts of Makati. (Don't we just love the web?) I got really curious as the Facebook page does not give the address, rather says they'll give it only upon reservation.

The restaurant's owned by Stephanie Zubiri whose travels across the globe inspired the dishes of  her small, but classy restaurant.  It serves Filipino classics with a global twist to French café fare and ethnic specialties.  Truly interesting.

And so I made a reservation a week before the V-day, and luckily it was confirmed by Stephanie herself.

We had a great time spending our Valentines together in this restaurant. Despite a busy day, we managed to unwind and squeeze in a nice and romantic dinner date away from the crowded restaurants, minus the Valentines rush stress.  And it's not far from where I work which makes it a total winner!

Our quiet Valentines dinner date: a success!

(The mood light was pretty dimmed, which is how I like it, so pardon me for dark photos.)

Prices were reasonable and service was superb. CC
I would definitely go back and recommend this hidden place to friends and family for intimate dinner get-togethers. Everyone craves for some peace and quiet, especially when living in a very busy city like this.

Here's the complete menu of Atelier 317:
