AS PRAISED BY
A Family Legacy
Transported To London
The inspiration behind Romulo Café & Restaurant comes from nostalgic and happy memories sitting around our grandparents’ dinner table enjoying the exceptional hospitality of our grandfather Carlos P. Romulo, one of the Philippines’ greatest statesmen, and the culinary prowess of our grandmother, Virginia Llamas Romulo, who had to entertain the many diplomats and dignitaries that visited our home.
The core recipes we use have been handed down through the generations, lovingly tweaked by our grandmother and now elevated and contemporised by our head Chef Jeremy Villanueva.
Our restaurant’s distinctive interiors were inspired by our beloved childhood home and we proudly display a great many family mementos in our four dining spaces, as well as photos of Romulo, my grandfather, meeting important international dignitaries such as the Kennedys and the Pope.

My wife and I have visited on back to back evenings. We enjoyed many different dishes and cocktails. The owners are very friendly and staff made us feel welcome. This is truly a taste of ‘home’ for those of us that hold the Philippines close to our hearts. Highly recommended.
