Illustrado Restaurant, Intramuros, Manila

Illustrado restaurant is located at 744 General Luna Street in the historic Intramuros or Walled City in Manila, Philippines. It is a Hispanic inspired haven with Spanish style garden courtyard where you can enjoy your cup of coffee.

An “illustrado” or enlightened one is an educated Filipino during the 19th century colonial Philippines. Illustrados were the middle class who acquired education in Spain and were exposed to the enlightenment period with its liberal and European ideals. They were able to do so because of the shift from mercantilism to free trade or laissez faire. Their families were able to participate in commerce and as a result they rose to be the new breed of middle class during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines. As such they were able to send their children to Europe to study.

The Illustrado restaurant, a family-run business opened in 1989. Savor your favorite traditional cuisine in a cozy and homey Spanish-style venue.
