We were welcomed by Stella’s inviting interiors that reflect their cooking technique – making use of natural wood.



Chef Arghie, Stella’s Executive Chef, prepared a variety of light yet flavourful dishes for us - mostly seafood.


We started with their Calamari Frito (275php) which is the best we have tasted yet. Unlike the other Calamari that requires a mayo dip, Stella’s is served with squid ink aioli and fresh lime which makes it savoury.


New on Stella’s menu is another best selling appetizer – Piri Piri Chilean Mussels (550php). I must say this is my favorite because of its perfect blend of ingredients.


Ancient Four Grain (320php) is another newbie in their menu but it’s also a best seller. It doesn’t taste like your ordinary salad. It’s sweet because of the passion fruit yogurt vinaigrette in it so it doesn't feel like you're eating greens.


We also tried one of their famous wood-fired pizzas – Garlic Bianca (350php). If you love garlic as much as I do, you should try this.


Stella’s Roasted Seafood “Firecracker” Fussili (395php) is also our favourite. For me, this pasta is a complete package – perfect flavour, perfect toppings, with that kick of spiciness.


Chef Arghie served us with an unusual main dish – Sesame & Herb Crusted Tuna Loin (495php). It is served medium rare yet crispy on the outside. It reminds me of my favourite tuna sashimi but this time, there’s a big twist in it. It’s served with red pepper humus which made it perfectly flavourful.


The dessert they served us is the biggest surprise we got. Looking at their Warm Chocolate Raspberry Cake (295php), it just looks like an ordinary chocolate cupcake served with chocolate ice cream and caramel crumble. But I was wrong. It isn’t caramel but fish sauce crumble! Have you ever imagined fish sauce in your dessert? Well, I didn’t. All the elements in this dish made it taste wonderful.


For their drinks, Stella serves a variety of wine and champagnes by the bottle or glass.


Stella is a great place to dine with your family and friends. I would also recommend it as a dating place. What’s good about its location is that it’s just beside Rocket Room which is an ideal place to have good drinks and good music. So, if you want to switch from a casual dining to a chill evening, you just have to hop across the other room.


Stella is located at the Ground Floor Level of Bonifacio High Street Central, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
