While it is considered as a bistro and not that of fine dinning, Pyramid is definitely for the sophisticated and cultured. You can enjoy dining while sipping wine of any kind or their signature cocktails like the Purple Haze and Lady Dragon. You are also allowed to enter their wine room and converse with the sommelier which talks very passionately regarding his craft. However their wines are not yet as extensive with the oldest wine originates in 2010

Yuppies from the Metro Manila will definitely love this place, as it gives everyone a one of kind experience without having to leave the state. Prices of food and beverage are at B class. (meaning they are quite expensive for a Yuppie but affordable nonetheless

Yuppies from the Metro can easily associate the Park as a Little, more eco-friendly, Makati. However what’s truly unique about CITP are their lifestyle and leisure centers. We recommend you visit not only the Pyramid, but also the Shaka Hawaiian Restaurant that offers delicious cuisine and a unique dining experience where you get to dine on a treehouse like balcony.
