Casa Buenas: A Celebration of Filipino Heritage and Hospitality

Inspired by traditional Filipino food and design, Casa Buenas elevates the fine dining experience with delicious dishes and top-notch hospitality.

Dining in Manila has gone up another notch because of Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) Casa Buenas and my experience here has been nothing but pleasurable—not only because of the great food and service but also because of the unique and intricate interior that the restaurant has to offer.

Indeed, Casa Buenas is a celebration of Filipino heritage—from the exquisite cuisine, vernacular architecture, to the quintessential Filipino hospitality and service.

The signature restaurant offers an array of Filipino dishes with Spanish influences, which are prepared by RWM’s executive chef, Godfrey Laforteza, and his team of RWM chefs. This specially curated menu ranges from zestful appetizers such as the Asian-inspired Kumot to off-the-grill specialtiesserved with in-house sauces like Iberico Pork Jowl, to Paella and Tapas

Traditional Interiors and World-class Hospitality

The restaurant features a 120-seating capacity and also showcases traditional Bahay na Bato-inspired interiors that exude a warm, homey, and relaxing vibe—much like a classic Filipino ancestral home. What’s more, the timeless aesthetic highlights sophisticated design elements from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao—from the baked capiz to the intricate wood marquetry and inlays, hand-crafted latticework, all the way down to the hand-carved hardwood floors.

Aside from the inviting ambiance, guests will also be treated to gracious Filipino hospitality and service that spell out a world-class experience. Truly a must-visit!
