Medical experts, PharmaRex group, media & bloggers [new media] were invited to attend a medical forum hosted by Cortal SQR to discussed a health-related issues entitled - Debunking Myth's, Correcting Misconceptions held at Bistro Marinero last July 28, 2011.
All along I thought Bistro Marinero was a seafood restaurant, thinking its location Intramuros and near Manila Bay and most establishment standing there offers an array of seafood dishes. Bistro Marinero, 4-storey building that houses a function rooms for events, seminars, soiress and other activities. It appears the place has a training ground [culinary, hotel management, etc.] for future seaman-related industry. Applicants and trainees were all over the place as well as the staff manning the place were all license to ride a cruise ship ready voyage and served across the ocean.

As soon as we arrived, we headed to the 4th floor and approached the stairways going to the covered Roof Deck function room - the El Puente Miyahara. The venue was spacious and well-lit, equipped with a multimedia projector, wide screen, digitally surround audio facilities, complete with wash rooms and bar area.

Casa Marinero offered a variety of cuisines from Filipino [Puerto Filipino], Japanese [Puerto Japon], European [Puerto Europeo] to American [Puerto Amerikano]. Buffet served that morning falls under the Puerto Europeo menu except I think for the vege dish, I think it was under Puerto Filipino being a Chop Suey type of dish. Meals were affordable and staff were accommodating and courteous all the time. A great place and ambience for family affairs, whenever in Intramuros, it feels nostalgic in some ways. They even have WiFi, great aye captain!
