A 30-minute drive from Manila via Cavitex is the cultural town of Rosario in Cavite. The municipality is known to be the vicinity of the historical Tejeros Convention.
Aside from the richness of cultural background, Rosario also boasts about its economic growth for the past years since the opening of the Cavite Economic Zone in the area.
I first visited Rosario when I was doing my documentary about the historical sites in Cavite. I have realized how this town plays a vital role in the independence of our nation. However, I never came back since I did not know any attractions that may convince me to once again visit the place.
After two years though, my grandfather invited the whole family to go to Rosario. He happily told us about this certain Servando’s Restaurant which serves delicious Filipino buffet cuisines. We got enticed by his invitation and then decided to visit the said restaurant.

It is almost beside SM City Rosario, and in front of Security Bank where visitors like us may find Servando’s Restaurant. It is quite small but decent. Nonetheless, the foods look delicious, not to mention that guests only need to pay P250 each for a buffet lunch or dinner. We were lucky enough, since three members of our family are senior citizens and they only need to pay the discounted price of P200 each.

We drove from our house in Bacoor and arrived at the restaurant around 11AM. Though, I recommend others to be at the restaurant around 10:30AM for buffet lunch. The restaurant not only serves Filipino cuisines but also some Japanese foods like California Maki and Sushi. My grandmother, however is looking for her favorite Kare-Kare dish but couldn’t find it. She then asked the waiter if the said viand is unavailable for that day. We later learned that guests may call them two days prior to their visit if there is a certain dish that they would like to eat at Servando’s.

My grandparents are both natives of Pampanga, and I know how meticulous they are when it comes to food tasting. And I totally agreed with them after I ate the food at Servando’s. Aside from the viands they offer, I enjoyed the part of doing my own Halo-Halo where all ingredients are available, including ice cream.

As I was eating our buffet lunch, I have realized that the place is a good venue for events such as weddings and debuts so I asked the manager if he could give me his business card for future transactions, if ever.
Mr. Ronnie Reyel approached me and later discussed with me that he is handling both the Sarabia Events & Catering as well as the restaurant. He told me that the restaurant is open every weekdays for general public and weekends for events such as weddings, debuts and baptismal.
Mr. Reyel also mentioned that they also offer value meal worth P60 for their guests who prefer not to have a buffet meal.
For those living in the south of Manila, I highly recommend this restaurant. You may contact Servando’s Restaurant at (046) 438.3686 for any inquiries.
