“Doesn't worth the moneh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We have expected that it will be a big buffet and honestly they didnt have enough food! Not even beef, we didnt know what to eat, just salad that was even without cucumbers! We found it very limited and wont recommend it to anybody.Only thing we have enjoyed is creme-brulee and marshmallows! Thats it.

“Decent food, but nothing spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We ate a la carte dinner here. We didn't try the buffet because we were still full from our lunch. The portion sizes were rather large, but nothing special. Decent food if you need something while staying at the Intercontinental. It was pricey and OK.

“Worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had lunch buffet there, a free buffet for 2 (my older brother and mom) and a Php 500 off for the lunch buffet I consumed, a perk availed by my older brother because he's a cardholder of Intercontinental Culinary Club. Cafe Jeepney's got this wow factor: It's what you feel about the ambiance once you get inside the establishment. You see the jeepney-inspired decorations. I was not able to taste everything because I felt easily full with what I ate. Too bad, I wasn't able to sample on most of their desserts, halo-halo and garden salad. Customer service is excellent. Dessert is perfect and forget you're on a diet!

“Limited Food Selection”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We checked-in at Intercon and had our dinner at The Jeepney using discounted voucher from Deal Grocer (@50& off). I've read different reviews about the buffet, mostly were bad reviews but still we wanted to give it a try as we wanted to dine in a more relaxing 'buffet' environment. We we're bit disappointed with the limited food selection. I felt like we were robbed even if it's @ 50% off. The only thing that we enjoyed were desserts. And plus points for the ambiance and the super attentive staff.

“So so restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Had our dinner at Cafe Jeepney and we availed a deal at Deal Grocer, we paid P960 instead of P1,754 (the original price). We checked the reviews online and we since the feedback was good, we gave it a chance. We were welcomed by the staff the moment we enter, the dining area was okay and lighting is great. The food however is a disappointment, we were expecting more. Dishes were limited, grilled chicken, fish, and pork, rice, squid, pork knuckles, siomai, siopao, soups, sashimis, salmon, tuna. That's about it. Because we were unsatisfied with our first plate, we grabbed a second plate and included rice (which we NEVER do when eating in buffets). For the desserts, it's a different story, their desserts were heavenly. Lots of cakes, and I personally love the crepe samurai, it's a must-try. Over-all, the food is average but the service is outstanding, they make sure that guests have everything they need. Personally, I would rather dine at buffet 101 that has also the same price as this but they have wider selection of food, just a food for thought.
