From being a family home to a restaurant in no time, The Mango Tree will have you surprised with their spacious garden setting when you finally get a glimpse of their inside. With wooden tables and chairs neatly lined up and huge windows that give you a refreshing view of their beautiful garden with the large mango tree right at the center of it all, the place truly is oozing with lightness and just easy breezy feels that make you reach for more and more of their good food.
The Mango Tree actually started focusing solely on Filipino food, but with tourists from around the world also coming in, they want to be able to offer them a place they could peg as their home that is of an elegant, beautiful, and uplifting vibe as well.
To begin, you should indeed should not miss out on their Pancit Molo (Solo Php 115 | Sharing Php 260), especially you are in Iloilo, because this one is of delicious homemade molo balls in a savory broth.
From that, do not hesitate into plunging into a few, if not all, gifts from the waters they are offering, particularly this Sizzling Gambas (Php 390) of theirs that is of succulent spiced shrimps with bell peppers and butter sauce.
Also, for some ultimate beefy goodness, their Sizzling Bulalo Steak (Php 290) is a favorite of ours as this one is undeniably of tender beef shank served with homemade mashed potatoes and sauce on a sizzling plate.
And for when having some beef you decide you want to add some porky delicacies as well, then clap your hands because you can go for a ton of their dishes such as their Kare Kare (Php 350) which is a serving of cuts of pork belly with a variety of fresh vegetables in a savory peanut sauce, their Sizzling Pork Sisig (Php 265) which is of minced pork cuts pan fried and served on a sizzling plate, and their Lechon Kawali (Php 250) which is of deep fried pork belly with homemade chili sauce.
To end, The Mango Tree also has a bunch of sweets like their Mango Banana Crepe (Php 205) which is a hefty plate of strips of mangoes and bananas wrapped in homemade crepe topped with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with chocolate syrup – an absolute dish we love as well!
Lastly, for drinks, they have different options you could go for but what we tried is a milkshake of theirs which is their lovely Chocolate Milkshake (Php 125) alongside a fruit shake of theirs as well, their Mango Shake (Php 90) which is a great cool down drink.
With a 3000 sqm for a space, The Mango Tree is, no surprise, claiming and known as the number one garden restaurant here in Iloilo wherein you could celebrate different occasions, events, and milestones you would want to spend with people you love dearly.
The Mango Tree is not only proud how good their food and drinks are and how lovely and relaxing their place is, but also their price point is available and certainly won’t put a huge hole in your budget, so better visit them soon especially when they are having their Tipsy Tuesday wherein you can enjoy unlimited wine as well as have the time of your life during their Acoustic Wednesday wherein you will not only get to delight in their unlimited wine offer but also be serenaded by local artists.
