Its founder, Glenda Barretto, is a Philippine culinary icon. Via Mare has been the go-to place for Filipino comfort food for decades and continues to satisfy cravings since 1975.


While some branches are newer than others, one rarely comes to Via Mare expecting to revel in plush surroundings. The food is truly the main focus.

  • True to its moniker, the baked oysters remain a popular draw, but it's the Filipino café classics such as the pancit luglog and lumpiang ubod that have developed a cultish following.
  • When feeling under the weather, few bring greater comfort than the soothing tandem of the thick, aromatic chicken arroz caldo and tokwa’t baboy(classic Filipino bar chow).
  • The bibingkahere is worth the side trip but takes a while to prepare. Plan ahead and order with the rest of the meal—it's the perfect sweet and savoury indulgence.
