Almost - five stars

It's Marco Polo Hotel - that means, it's pricey - especially, when it comes to drinks. It's a five star hotel - but I'll be giving the buffet just four stars.

So in my title as I said, I just dont know how this managed to rate so high with other patrons. My reasons for making such a bold statement are simple, I just can't see that the amount of fails that happened on my visit here could possibly happen all at once. This place should be judged by world standards... More

We come here regularly for Christmas dinner and for Birthdays. Cafe Marcos regular dinner buffet is really excellent for any occasion. Be it party, romantic occasion, or business dinner. The selection and variety of foods is good and most important, the quality of the food is excellent. Fresh raw materials is the key to a good dinner and that's what... More

My boyfriend and I have tried both the breakfast and dinner buffets at Cafe Marco. It was good but an expensive price to pay for limited selections. I personally liked the fruit juices that they served but they only served like two during our visit there. But it is a good place to eat during special occasions - we even... More

Been here for 3 times already and the latest one was the day before my graduation. Though not as diverse as the normal buffet restaurant, marco polo still offers a good selection of japanese, italian, french, pinoy, american and chinese food which will satisfy you cravings. Service-wise, it was great. The price is reasonable enough (less than 1k if it... More

A typical hotel ambiance and smiling crews. Good for buffet. A little bit pricey too. Their blueberry cheese cake is a must try!

No great shakes here. Nothing wrong either. I could not write a glowing review nor find fault. The cafe serves its purpose- - - feed hotel guests and their visitors when hungry.
