The Peninsula is walking distance from our house. My husband and I like to come here to listen to the music. Sometimes, we have a halo halo, a dessert made up of chilled preserved fruits. Here, the servings are particularly big so we split it between the 2 of us if we are a little full. We have had dinner... More

Whether for a business lunch (or dinner) or as a romantic meal for 2. Indeed just a drink this is the place. The surroundings are out of this world, the quality of food is 5 star quality, prices however are very reasonable - and the staff are so very attentive. The lobby somehow also manages a home from home feel... More

Absolutely gorgeous spot to meet family, friends and colleagues for lunch, dinner, drinks or merienda. Fantastic wine list, and drool-worthy dessert menu. It’s definitely a splurge, with “tourist” pricing. Had to have the famous Peninsula Halo-Halo, a traditional Filipino summer dessert with mixed fruit, crushed ice, leche flan, ube jam, milk and rice crispies on top. I think it’s meant... More

As a business traveler, I am always looking for the total package and this is it. Not rushed service, beautiful spaces and reasonable prices. Must go see place in Manila!

After having our sumptuous dinner at Spices Restaurant, we had our desert at The Lobby with our favorite "The Pen Pals" with grand Symphony of Ice Cream! enough for the whole family. The live string band makes it more enjoying and relaxing. Hot Cafe Americano concluded our happy evening.

Before or after a long business day, their variety of service and meals is great, I'm particularly fond of their choice of herbal infusions

The place is totally classy and the staff is really friendly but having to wait for 30+ minutes just for a giant bowl of ice cream is too much. So please do a better job next time 'cause I still intend to come back after that sugar high!

We stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere is great, the food so-so, overpriced, and the service extremely slow. It wasn't even busy! Would not go back!

The Lobby of the Pen is a place to be seen and to see at almost any time of the day or evening. It features a respectable menu for afternoon tea and is great for drinks at almost anytime. But be warned, the prices are world class, i.e. not cheap. But the atmosphere, especially with live music, makes the visit... More
