Stella and Rocket Room are brainchild of Raintree Restaurants owned by a Filipino-Polish restaurateur who are also the creator of other superb restaurants namely Chelsea Market & Cafe, MoMo Cafe, Mr. Jones, Museum Cafe and the newest addition on their growing list – Kabila Filipino Bistro (beside the new Museum Cafe in Ayala Museum Complex Greenbelt 4). Each restaurant lends a unique concept and target.
Opened last May 2012, Stella is a wood-fired bistro that offers a full array of delights peppered with tastes true to the West Coast, the Mediterranean and South America with an influence of European cuisine. The bistro, prominently located in Bonifacio High Street Central, makes use of natural wood in its dishes, imparting the most flavorful aromas unlike any other cooking technique.
Stella’s interior is inviting, simple yet fresh on the eyes. Ideal for brunches with colleagues, working ladies who lunch and friends or family get-together dinners.
Stella is envisioned to be the Star restaurant among all the other establishments in Fort Bonifacio area. See their one star above? *grin* They craft high quality dishes using fresh harvests and mostly organic ingredients. Stella provides sustainable handcrafted cuisine kept fresh and simple.
Rocket Room on the other-hand, is a bar lounge-slash-cafe which is just adjacent Stella.
Rocket Room’s set-up is perfect for having small bites of antipasti or their tapas, drinking mixed liquor or lounging during coffee break or after work hours. It is still open in the late hours even after Stella closes.
It houses a remarkable selection of wines, beers and infused cocktails. With it’s vivid and outré interiors elaborately designed lends a retro vibe to your every hangout.
Stella and Rocket Room were strategically separated and designed differently to accommodate diverse target markets – Stella for families and casual diners and Rocket Room for yuppies and professionals. But you may order dishes from Stella and vice versa.
