Deo Gracias is a Spanish restaurant located in Barangay Sacred Heart (Kamuning), Quezon City. Just around the Timog area where Filipinos consider a dining and drinking destination. A lot of old residences in the area have become restaurants and cafes and Deo Gracias is one of them.
It is an old ancestral house turned into a modern restaurant. The interior and exterior were well-designed having a fun and spacious atmosphere. It has the vibe of a finer household having a party with its gate wide open and well-lit garden.
Deo Gracias is run by renowned chef, Heny Sison, and in collaboration with Spanish chef, Alex Del Hoyo Gomez. They wanted to honor the traditional but also uplift the experience. They promised to offer fun Spanish cuisine and the most enjoyable experience.
THANKS BE TO GOD
The name translates to “Thanks be to God” or “Give thanks to God” which I’m sure you’ll say after dining in Deo Gracias. My cousin, Ches, invited us for her birthday dinner at the restaurant. Upon entering the venue, I told myself that this place is very fancy. The staff were very welcoming and nice. One staff led me to a private room that is cozy and has privacy. The room is good for dinner dates or for family gatherings.
For the food, we ordered Negra, Paella De Verduras, Cuarto De Cochinillo, Lengua Estofada, Puntillas Fritas, and Ensaladas. The food is great, especially the Puntillas Fritas, the squid is very crispy and the alioli is a good match to it. The lengua is soft and its sauce is tasty. I also like the Negra with its crispy baby squids. With just that, for me, it is already a complete meal.
For the desserts, we ordered Churros and the Coulant De Avellana. The churros are nicely cooked and when it is coated with chocolate, a normal churros can be a wonderful experience. As for the Coulant De Avellana, a lava cake does not disappoint, add it with hazelnuts and ice cream, and I’m sure you’ll never worry about diabetes.
Overall, my experience in Deo Gracias is a 9/10. The food, the service, and the ambiance are worthy to be tried and tasted again. By the way, they also have a store they call, La Tienda, which offers cold cuts, bottles of wine, bread, bottled products, cakes, and snacks. If you are craving some Spanish delights, also visit their La Tienda.
