After spending a day of touring around the Green Belt mall, stopped in for a cold one. There was a group of musicians on the second level playing some fantastic music (not to loud - I was able to converse with a colleague). The atmosphere was so relaxing.

it was a rainy evening and I was looking for a quick sandwich for dinner. I had the club sandwich which was quite good. It even came with French Fries.

Not only do you get to enjoy delicious entrees, you get to experience it while listening to an orchestra play popular tunes in their own cover, as did the pianists. Very talented. The kids REALLY loved their burger, super flavorful! I loved their ‘PAMORA’ CHICKEN ARROZ CALDO! Recommended!

We go here every week to unwind and to relax, the food is expensive and overpriced but the best part of your stay here is the ambiance, the music and the service!

Had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the lobby. This place is fancy and extravagant at the same time. Expect to have white glove service during your dinning experiences. A pianist or orchestra might be serenading you during your dinning stay. The whole ambiance is upscale and worth the experience. Also tried the breakfast buffet which is the better buffets then...

The chips and salad is also delicious and we were there from 3 - 7pm! It was a great place to meet, eat and... More

The restaurant in the lobby is simply amazing. Had dinner here twice and there was an orchestra playing classical music. The place is pretty classy. Ordered a steak for dinner (1,500 pesos, or $33 at that time) and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had plus the price is a bargain compare to the best steakhouses... More

Grandest lobby in Manila... from lofty ceilings to well spaced tables allowing the luxury of space and privacy to your guests... Our guests and I had the smoked salmon which was average, service was attentive.

It's a good place to have a light meal, while listening to a live jazz band. Food is great and affordable.
