You don’t have to fly across the globe just to experience a Mediterranean treat and vibe! HUMA Mediterranean Cuisine offers everything from innovative and imaginative interiors down to the scrumptuous food that will leave you wanting more.
HUMA Mediterranean Cuisine recently opened last April 2016, and is located at the 2nd floor of S’ Maison, Conrad Hotel in Pasay City. Considering their restaurant’s location perfectly elevated and facing the Manila bay, this restaurant may seem to have the best view of sunrise and sunset to date.
Originally a concept under the HUMA Islands resort and spa in Busuanga, Palawan, they’ve decided to open the restaurant near the metro to reach their customer and widen their market.

Operations Manager, Executive Chef and part-owner of HUMA Mediterranean cuisine, Elias El Chaer isn’t just an ordinary chef. He is a high-caliber chef with 30 years of experience and currently owns five restaurants in Denmark. According to him, he has a Lebanese assistant chef and Filipino staff, which he commended afterwards for being clever and disciplined.
The restaurant can accommodate 80 customers and is also open for reservations and catering.
When it comes to the ingredients, El Chaer added that their spices and flavorings are imported from Kuwait but vegetables are mainly bought here in the Philippines.
What sets this restaurant apart is their Professional Mediterranean dishes. Here are some of their best-sellers:
