Nice for Manila

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

I went back to the Lobby at the Penn because I missed the halo- halo shaved ice, ice cream and fruit. It was as good as I recall from 30 years ago. The live music was still there. Not many things in Manila have stayed as good. I did not like the inflated prices of other items in the menu,... More

For first but old world charm, The Lobby always works. Tip: always specify your brand when ordering a cocktail. That way you get your money's worth. The family will always love the desserts as well.

The whole place was festive with Christmas decor. Some of the waiters had Santa Claus caps and service was excellent as usual. My wife had fish and chips. She liked it but the portion was too big so I had to help her finish. The fresh juices were really fresh and my club sandwich was okey. Nice place to relax... More

Had a late lunch here and food came fast but poorly presented for the value and staff were chitchatting and not paying attention. Lobby looks overly decorated with fake palm tree. I could not help but compare it to what i experienced in peninsula hongkong. I was so proud to bring my foreign friend to this hotel but turns out... More

I was quite impressed at how well the hotel management were able to keep the restaurant vibe even if customers are basically dining in the lobby. Service is top notch. Food is good, familiar and nothing too ambitious. I've tried their pasta and like it. Our american friend tried the adobo and enjoyed it :) Though I prefer more intimate... More

The Lobby Club and Eggs Benedict are my favorites. Super delicious but its a bit expensive. The lobby ambiance is very good even if the hotel is a bit old. Highly recommended for business travellers.👍😊
