I dined at Rekados with 5 others and we were all disppointed from the minute we walked in. Upon arrival, one of the servers looked at us but turned around right away to serve a table. It took the same server another 5 minutes to get back to us. We said we had reservations, but he never asked for the name the reservations were for and told us we can sit anywhere. It was a week night and the place was a third full, therefore not too busy. We saw a table with a sign that said reserved and pointed it out. His boss came out and told him that the table was for us. After being seated, we waited another 5 minutes to be given menus. We ordered our drinks and again, it took about 20 minutes before all of the drinks were served.
We then proceeded to order our food: for appetizers, we had tokwa't tokwa, lumpiang shanghai, barbeque chicken and pork, and calamares; for our main dishes, we had palabok, bicol express, adobo, spinach adobo, and sizzling salpicao; and for dessert, we had turon toffee, leche flan, guinumis, sago't gulaman, cheesecake and dark chocolate combo. It took another 20 minutes before the first of the appetizers came out. By this time we had been at Rekados for almost an hour starving. All of the savouries were bland and/or spicy. We didn't mind the spicy, but not having enough flavour in the food was the concern. The iced drink/desserts were also bland. We were all so annoyed waiting for so long for food and service and to top it all, the food was not good.
I thought the food was expensive for what you're getting, not enought value for the money. This place was over rated and I don't think any of us will be returning to this restaurant.
