One Of The Philippines' Best Restaurants Is In This Luxury Car Dealership


Foodies looking for one of the Philippines’s best restaurants shouldn’t look any further: all they need is to visit the new PGA Cars Studio along EDSA, Mandaluyong.

PGA Cars—the Philippine partner of the crème de la crème of luxury vehicles—Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, and Bentley has elevated contemporary luxury with the addition of a new space dedicated not just to cars but to culture and other curated experiences.

The PGA Cars Studio merges a showroom along with an automotive lifestyle center, café, exhibition hall, and a world-class service center for luxury cars. This allows guests to have an intimate journey starting with the ground floor showroom space that not only contains their luxury vehicles, but can also be transformed into an exhibition floor for other luxury items, including art pieces.

Not confined by boundaries, the same area can serve as a lounge accommodating larger events. Defining the automotive service area are top-notch fixtures and advanced equipment, all of which tidily arrayed within a vast, airy space. Guests can also experience select vehicles by way of test drives, or bespoke presentations made by highly trained PGA Cars personnel.


Meanwhile, the mezzanine of PGA Cars Studio serves as the first Manila branch of the world-renowned Antonio’s. The space merges a bar, bistro, and fine dining restaurant into one contemporary, yet intimate space. Entrees served at Antonio’s Tagaytay such as the Bone-In Ribeye, Dry-Aged Steak Tartare, 15 Days Dry-Aged English Dingley Dell Pork Striploin are available.

Masterfully executed by the architect Frances Melissa Dimaculangan, the PGA Cars Studio relies on a rich mix of organic and industrial materials, as well as a contrast in textures and patterns, to directly reference the exterior and interior surfaces of Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley models.

Adding even more elegance are the automotive-theme décor on the walls and shelves. Full-grown narra trees, transplanted to the area as part of PGA Cars’ environmental initiatives, give guests a refreshing view of outdoor greenery.

PGA Cars Studio is located at 202 EDSA corner Rochester Street, Greenhills, Mandaluyong City.

Meanwhile, Antonio’s at PGA Cars is open from Tuesdays to Sundays for lunch between 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM and dinner between 6 PM to 8:30 PM. The lounge bar, meanwhile, is open from 9:00 AM to 6 PM on Mondays, and 9 AM to 11 PM from Tuesdays to Sundays. You may call +63 985 221 6791 for inquiries and reservations.

  1. Is the Carrera Cafe still there?

    1. AFAIK, it was closed during the pandemic and it hasn't been reopened since. This is the likely replacement to the Carrera Cafe.
