Great clubhouse sandwich, aside from it's unique presentation, the sandwich itself was delicious and had the right amount of all expected ingredients plus a nice tinge of sweetness (I think that was the pineapple bits), it was also served on the side with a very well done and fresh pate! Super! However, the service staff can learn to keep their... More

Our free breakfast in our overnight stay during a management workshop was being served at Cafe Ilang-ilang. It's quite a huge restaurant with a view of the swimming pool outside and Manila Bay at the edge of the pool. The receptionist by the main entrance was very pleasant and cordial. After taking down our room numbers she told us to... More

I love the prime rib here! very tender and flavourful! they had generous servings too unlike market cafe (hyatt) they also serve the best gelato! the chocolate gelato was to die for! tempura tasted excellent too! The only thing I didn't like much was the peking duck, it had that poultry uncooked taste unlike other places I've eaten, but most... More

The best and the star of the buffet is the Grilled Lamb with mint sauce... It ismso juicy and tender cooked into perfection just the way hubby and i... More

This is one of the best hotel restaurants in Manila. It is located inside Manila hotel. This restaurant offers ala carte and buffet. If you have a privilege card you can get 50% off if 2 person dine in (by the way, card is transferable). They usually have tie- ups with credit card companies that offer the same package. So... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a smile and warm welcome. They always check on us to see if we need anything. I even saw one server assisting a senior citizen even though the lola didn't ask for his help. As for the food, there are i think 9 or 10 stations. I loved the italian and thai section. The... More

The buffet is quite expensive so our family goes only on very special occasions. The decor is elegant. Servers are attentive. The layout is unique, in other words, weird and confusing. The Japanese station is tucked away in the back or is it the front. It almost has its own entryway. There is sooo much food that there is no... More

Ate here with a friend last week. Underwhelmed to say the least. I will say that I loved the room – it was well decorated and features a unique layout. I’m told this restaurant is famous for its buffet – did a survey of what was available, some of it was well presented and a couple items I even wanted... More

A nice space, very pleasant, good service, decent menu selection -- but the food itself is average, especially for a hotel of the calibre of the Manila Hotel. Quite expensive too -- I wouldn't choose to eat there unless I had to, beyond the reasonable breakfast buffet that they serve.

Wide selection of food, nice steak, delicious roast duck but the old japanese chef is not that friendly, Why did I say that ? Because when my son ask for a certain kind of sushi, the old chef ignored him and told him that it is not available but when in fact he saw somebody requested for it and got... More
