MANILA, Philippines — Dining in at restaurants, especially on Valentine’s Day, will always be an irresistible experience.

Megaworld Lifestyle Malls has converted and redesigned its open spaces in its various lifestyle malls and allowed its partner restaurants to extend their outdoor seating to accommodate more alfresco diners.

Diners can look forward to enjoying more fresh air and a unique dining experience at their favorite restaurants without having to worry about their safety as alfresco dining offers better physical distancing, air quality and ventilation. Reinforced safety and intensive sanitation protocols are also in place including the strict observance of social distancing among diners.
