Being stuck at home (again) feels very exhausting and saddening. We know how much these new rounds of community quarantine can get to people in all aspects of our lives. We also know how much these times can make us long to get out, see our family and friends, go eat at our favorite restaurant, and travel to a different place more. 

Though those times may still seem uncertain for now, keep in mind that these are measures we need to take in order for us to fight the virus and protect ourselves and our loved ones from getting it. 

With that said, when that time comes and we can safely go out once again, consider visiting these restaurants that have al fresco dining within the metro. Not only will you get to be able to enjoy good food, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the outdoors. 


Tucked inside Horseshoe Village in Quezon City, Lemuria might not be familiar to some. However, this elegant restaurant has been in the business for years now and has been a witness to many proposals and weddings. Their garden is romantic and intimate, perfect for dinners with your SO, and intimate gatherings with family or friends. If you want to dine here, better call in for a reservation as they don’t allow walk-ins.
