Excitement and anticipation awaits for BA Foodies and The Lost Asian as this is one of the most talked about closed door restaurants in Guía Óleo. Though the food itself didn’t have my blood boiling with happiness, the company, decent food, great wine and the beautiful ambiance left me quite a happy camper. 

Restaurant Critic

The ambiance might be one of my favorites in the puertas cerradas circle; a big window from top to bottom reveals the calming night lights outside, and the interior has a fireplace, a sofa dining space and a few tables evenly spaced out- all lighted with candles. Though not like the big commun table, the space is more like a restaurant than a closed door restaurant where you get to meet other people.  Very romantic. Definitely not a superb place for two good friends going for a meal, because I almost wanted to woo Maria after a few glasses of delicious wines.

Food Critic

Is it because other reviewers has rate it so high that it builds such a high expectation for anyone going there? Or maybe because closed door restaurant does not give menu choices and having to spend 200 pesos ($50) for a meal, it gives me the bais of weighing the worth of the meal. The food is made with delicate hands, a lot of details behind it and overall delicious, but unfortunately wasn’t unique enough to have me lingering over the taste and textures. I wasn’t blown away by chicken enchiladas served in such a romantic setting, or the beef stroganoff dish that is too heavy to appreciate the delightful delicate smorsel of empanada bite I had in the beginning. After all is said and done, the wines were paired superb, generously poured, and the dessert was delicious. Decide for yourself and tell me what you think.
