Great place for a Christmas season.

Amazing native hot chocolate. Just be sure to ask for the native one cause if you don't, they give you Swissmiss. I especially love to visit around December cause their Christmas decor is spectacular.

I'm here now at 1:15pm on Aug. 16. I requested any food on the menu without dairy since my daughter has dairy allergy. The chef informed me that the only thing I can order is fruit. That's the only thing he advised they can risk serving if you have food allergies. I inquired about the poolside menu; same problem. So,... More

My favorite place for a business meeting. I oftenm meet clients in the lobby restaurant of the Peninsula. The service is the very best, the food never disappointing. A little pricey but to be expected for such a prestigious establishment. The brewed coffee wonderful and the tuna sandwich a tasty snack. A wide variety of all the traditional breakfast foods...

First of all, pricey, but most importantly, worth it. The ambience is relaxed and private. The attendant is very professional. I enjoyed their new England clam chowder, but I've had better. Now now, I had the beef stew, and I certainly have no complain. My favorite part? Dessert. Love their choco loco sundae. Great great great!!

The Grandeur of the Lobby of The Pen with its high ceiling and a string quartet perched at the mezzanine provides the ambiance. The cafe is open 24 hours and serves really good comfort food. Service is quick and efficient. Price is on the upper side of expensive.

I dine twice in the lobby restuarant located at the Peninisula Lobby restuarant During lunch, I ordered the cesaer salad with chicken, the lettuce was not very fresh but the seafood chowder soup was really good. In the evening, I was back really late and did not want to have a heavy dinner and ask for recommendation from the waiter... More

The food was very, very good. The service was a little slow. It was in the lobby and a little noisy. I shouldn't complain about this as I knew what I was getting into when I sat down. Just a nice place for a start of the day meal.

This is nice for Manila but the food and service cannot compare to the other Peninsula properties in Hong Kong, shanghai or Tokyo.

I love that you can eat a meal here or just sit and enjoy people watching and the music. While staying at the The Peninsula Hotel one night we had drinks here, we ate lunch here, we just sat and read books here. From the marble balconies, the crystal-like windows, hyper high ceilings, the red lantern style hanging lamps, the... More
