Making a splash when it first opened in 2006, Spiral’s dining innovations were a first in Asia and it became one of Manila’s most loved restaurants. Dining has never been the same again since. But the new Spiral proves that even a trailblazer can top itself with Sofitel once again taking destination dining to a whole new level.The new Spiral is divided into 21 dining ateliers. In France, an atelier is an artist’s special workshop, and in Spiral it is where secret recipes are masterfully prepared right before your very eyes. The range of cuisines is expansive and the attention and detail to each dish has the focus of an artisan.

Was great!! As always. There was truffle everything..Black truffle in so many things from risotto to mashed potatoes! And that insane cheese pie. Literally just various cheeses wrapped in flaking pastry baked until so the cheeses start oozing, with star and Christmas tree cut outs on top.

The variety is incredible. Fish, meats, pasta, Chinese, Indian... You name it. The cheese room is outstanding. Desserts are incredible; but i ever have any space left. And the service is always very friendly. Make reservations on the weekend, it can be quite busy.

We love spirals buffet. The spread is very varied, there are a lot of choices and the ambiance of the hotel is very nice. This is actually the top 1 on our list for hotel buffets in Manila, followed by Circles in Shangri- La.
