“Your neighborhood tambayan” was how it was called many moons ago. Dining spilled out to the streets of Rockwell Center.  And it’s back with a timely twist: Safety is a priority.

Your favorite restaurants at Lopez Drive, One Rockwell, Edades, Joya Lofts & Towers and 8 Rockwell have gone streetside, while taking public health protocols to heart. The streets close to the restaurants are cordoned off on weekends to provide serenity and security in an otherwise fearful year. The free and wide open spaces are perfect for family and friendly gatherings that everyone sorely misses.

Enjoy personal conversations with friends and family at Pancake House, Grace Park, and Coco Ichibanya, over breakfast or even brunch, while socially distanced, of course. If you’re in Makati and you’re looking for the perfect place to hold your corporate lunch meetings, Rockwell has a variety of options for you. The outdoor set-up and unique cuisines of Nikkei, Woodfire, Single Origin, UCC Café Terrace, and Wild Flour Restaurant will give you the right comfort and ambience to make your meetings productive. Don’t forget to grab a cup of hot coffee from Eight Coffee Bar by UCC to refuel your daily grind.

After a long, hard day’s work, go for the relaxing atmosphere of Made Nice, The Test Kitchen, Tajimaya, and Rambla. Catch up with your loved ones over some fine wine or classic cocktails, paired with a lovely dinner.

If you happen to be in the San Juan area, why not reinvigorate yourself in the green spaces of Santolan Town Plaza and indulge in a safe and yet sumptuous meal at the outdoor dining area in the Pavilions, where you can choose from a variety of cafes and restaurants?

Dining out can be both safe, and satisfying. So head on over to your favorite Rockwell restaurants for a worry-free and delightful al fresco experience.
