Eat Out Manila is the new online restaurant reservations mobile application hitting the Metro, as we speak. Headed by Iñaki Lamata, one of the founders of Eat Out Manila, the mobile app offers a new exciting dining experience in Metro Manila that will soon hit the other Metro cities in the country. Eat Out Manila is based on an internationally-recognized restaurant reservations system already used in Europe, US, and Asia. One of the founding member of Eat Out Manila is based in Spain who introduced the system to his cousin, Lamata, and the idea of applying the innovation in the Philippines followed through.
We were told by Lamata himself, that the app has a wonderful response from diners and subscribers with more than 400 downloads (at the time we’ve spoke with him) at a very recent launch. Their next target is to cater to customers and restaurants based in Cebu and Boracay by December of this year.
There are about 100 restaurants already subscribed to Eat Out Manila and they are aiming for a 300-400 additions to their rosters by the end of the year.
According to Lamata, Eat Out Manila was conceptualized over a 1-year dining app study based on an innovation based in Spain. “As far as we know, there is no other app like Eat Out Manila in the Philippines,” said Lamata. “The same dining app innovation is a product of 10-year evolution and we just want to strengthen negotiating the best deals in town via dining app restaurant reservations.”
“The motivation behind this app springs from personal experience. With the growing list of things you can do remotely through your mobile phone, we thought it’s about time we had something for table reservations from which a food-loving country such as the Philippines will greatly benefit,” he added.
Eat Out Manila has already tied up with various restaurants, counting new establishments such as Rambla, which has the most number of bookings yet so far, Lulu, Vyne, The Glass Door, and Las Flores among its growing list of sought-after restaurants, along with long-time favorites Abe, Crisostomo, Mango Tree, and D’Vine.
It was fitting that the Eat Out Manila Media Launch was held at Rambla where we’ve got to sample few of their best entree such as appetizing Bread with Tomato & Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Php 125) served with crispy Coca bread. We were also served with Foie Gras Mousse with Caramelized Apple & Coffee-Baileys Foam (Php 295). Then there’s the Mediterranean Cold Octopus Carpaccio with hummus, red onions, coriander and sweet paprika (Php 495).
The main entree showcased us with Spicy Mediterranean Rice Safron & Red Tuna Loin Tataki (Php 495) and Seafood Soup with Green Peas & White Radish Fettuccini (Php 295) served with Spherical Olives marinated in extra virgin olive oil (Php 45).
Rambla specializes in rice, cold cuts & cheeses, seafood, salads, and desserts, Barcelona styled cuisine.
For business and restaurant owners, Eat Out Manila offers Booking Management System for a minimal fee of Php 1,000 (Basic) and Php 1,500 (Pro).
