Event venues have sprouted all over the metro, each one unique and Instagram-worthy. But none compares to the beauty and elegance of 18-year-old Patio Victoria inside the Walled City of Intramuros, Manila.

For the past 18 years, Patio Victoria’s “old world charm” has never ceased to attract guests to book special occasions such as weddings, debuts, baptisms, anniversaries, birthday parties, and even corporate events.

Antique wooden gates open to beautiful walkways of cobblestone and refreshing fountains, accented by flowering plants and large trees. Its two gardens, Sofia and Diana, are named after the owner’s daughters and can each accommodate up to 350 guests. The Sofia Garden’s Tivoli lights, center fountain, and lavishly designed gazebo leave guests in awe, while a well-grown acacia tree in the heart of the Diana Garden shades the guests and creates a dreamy sight.

The air-conditioned Sofia Banquet Hall is perfect for all kinds of occasions and can accommodate 250 guests. Promising the perfect venue for a dream wedding with its elegant appeal that brings nostalgia from the Spanish era. It is a full-serviced venue that provides everything from catering to styling, so the clients can just enjoy their experience.

“Patio Victoria has been here for 18 years, and we will always be here to keep that tradition of expressing joy and thanksgiving, but always reinventing to cater to all celebrations. Next year, we will start catering to other venues, not only in the gardens inside Intramuros, but in other places in the whole country. We want to make celebrations truly amazing and special,” says Cristina Gonzales-Romualdez.

Cristina is also proud of Patio’s affordable all-in packages with a menu of classic and mouth-watering dishes like Lengue de Bodegero, Paella ala Patio Victoria, Roast Beef, Beef Lasagna, and many other mouthwatering dishes.

“We have a wide menu of both local and international cuisine. I am proud that we serve good and exquisite food and our waiters are highly skilled and well-trained. I guarantee you that your event will be perfect,” adds Cristina.
