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.👍😊

Especially when band is playing. Open 24 h. Very convenient. Very accommodating. We had breakfast at midnight and it was no problem. The tapa was tough, the Ticino delicious and the bangus was too salty. 1 out of 3 when it came to breakfast. Had afternoon tea. Very good spread for buffet. Sandwiches were alright. The pastries were so so.... More

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
