The FMIL and FFIL was not impressed. So was I. I was disappointed, actually. The ceilings were too low, and the floor appeared like plain cement because of the color. When we arrived, the place was being set up for a party, there was also a stage and a setting for 100 heads. The owner said the place can accommodate 200 heads but I sincerely doubt that. The setting for 100 heads looked just about right. If we put in additional 5 tables for 50 more heads, it would already be a back to back scenario. It was also a little too warm but the aircon was probably not turned on yet.
I am thinking that with a really good stylist, the place can be transformed. But I didn't want too much styling. I want a place where we do not need too much styling anymore because we prefer to spend on other things like the food and our wedding rings.
So, Patio De Manila is out of our list. Sad...
