Market Cafe located in the Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila was actually one of the pioneers in open kitchen concepts for its coffee shop or all day dining restaurants. It has a number of open kitchens serving authentic cuisines from the region. It is very interactive as chefs man the counters and prepare food a la minute. Food is never... More

Forgive me for being candid but considering the price I paid & the lousy food served, i must say the experience was an utter disappointment. Market cafe' interiors looked ambitious but appeared ordinary. I liked the roast beef though (the only food I dared to continue eating --- I ignored the rest after having a bite). And, the reception was... More

This was my second visit to Market Cafe for the Steak & Seafood Night. The price of the buffet (approx P1,300.00 if purchased from DealGrocer.com) is more than worth it in view of the excellent selection of beef, lamb and seafood (including lobster) which can be grilled to your liking. The buffet also has a vast array of appetizers, cold... More

The Market Café breakfast buffet is excellent with great service. Omelets are prepared to order, crispy bacon, pastries and a very good array of fruit. Also, salmon and an array of Asian goodies are available. It is a great buffet; and a great way to start the day before hitting the town!!

It was about six years since I had been here so I assumed that standards would have slipped. How wrong I was, although since Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), the buffet is now only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. There were about 60 diners on the Sunday night on which I attended. Apart from the free help yourself unlimited canned... More

We choose the Seafood and Steak Buffet offered by Market Cafe Hyatt Hotel and purchased a voucher from Deal Grocer at greatly discounted prices (40% off the regular rate). There was prime rib and various seafood (crayfish, bugs prawns etc) and meats which one selected and had the chef cook to your liking. This is then delivered to your table.There... More

We had our New Year's Eve celebration here, and enjoyed the food. The spread is adequate, but not enormous, however, everything we had was of pretty good quality. The turkey was juicy, and the made to order soup, and cooked seafood were good. The waitstaff & chefs were friendly and helpful.

In its class, hotel restaurants, Market Cafe in the Hyatt Manila deserves 5 stars. We ate their breakfast buffet twice (about $27 per person including service charges) and was impressed by the wide variety of foods and quality. At the "american" station, there was fresh sliced ham, eggs benedict, any eggs of your choice, sausage and bacon, among others. Their... More

Went for a celebratory buffet dinner, and I remember loving the cheesy lobsters I had cooked, the steak (though they didn't get my medium rare quite right the first time,) and the dessert table! This is one of those buffets where the choices are few but almost everything is top notch, and because you are not overwhelmed by items you... More

Pretty limited choice on this cafe but one of the very best in Manila for they only serve choice cut meat dishes with a variety of seafood during weekend like baby lobster, crab and prawns. You can have it either way - just give instructions to the chef and it will be served in your table in a jiffy. Unlimited... More
