It's no secret that eating out in Manila is always fun. Whether you're looking for something new or unique to try, it's impossible to run out of options. However, there's more to dining than the food—sometimes, it's about the interiors and the feel of the place, too. If you and your significant other love to take design inspiration out of diners and cafes, here are a few places you should visit: 

La Vie Parisienne

If you want to experience a wine library sans the expensive plane ticket to France, head on over to La Vie Parisienne. Aside from the impressive cellar, guests drool over the chairs, tables and tiles, too—some of which were imported all the way from Paris. In this combined deli, bakery and bar, you can indulge in French pastries, gourmet sandwiches and cheese plates while feeling like a tourist in the heart of your own city. 

La Vie Parisienne is located at GF, LPL Center, San Agustin street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. You can call them at 812-9235. 

Spoon eat + drink

Located in Phase 3 of BF Homes in Paranaque is Spoon eat + drink, a small diner that is a favorite among locals and visitors from the North. This place is every Instagram-obsessed person's dream—from the bare cement walls down to the rustic-industrial decor pieces. While you're snapping away, don't forget to check out the deck at night to take a photo of the stunning skyline. 

Spoon Eat+Drink is located at 319 Aguirre Ave, BF Homes, Parañaque City. You can call them at 738 0085. 

Apartment 1B

If you have a soft spot for home-away-from-home places, Apartment 1B should be on top of your must-visit list. Its elegant and cozy atmosphere combined with the rustic interiors keep regulars and first-timers coming back for more—the lineup of comfort food dishes on the menu help a lot, too.

Apartment 1B is located at GF, 1 Lafayette Square, 132 L. P. Leviste cor. Sedeno Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. 

Dong Juan

Dong Juan has come a long way from its humble roots in Cebu. They have opened several breathtaking branches in the last few years and the one in Quezon city is no exception. Set in an ancestral house owned by playwright Severino Reyes, the interiors highlight a perfect blend of classic and modern elements that evoke a simple yet one-of-a-kind charm that you can't miss. 

Dong Juan is located at 72 Mo. Ignacia Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City. You can call them at 374 0265. 

Sky Deck View Bar, The Bayleaf Intramuros

If you're into al fresco dining, make sure to book reservations at the Sky Deck View Bar at the Bayleaf Hotel where you can enjoy a panoramic view of Manila. It's open the entire day but we recommend visiting at night to make the most of the relaxing ambiance. 

Sky Deck is located at 9/F The Bayleaf Hotel, Muralla cor. Victoria street, Intramuros, Manila. You can call them at 318-5000.
