If you're looking for a chic location to enjoy a refreshing halo-halo look no further than the lobby at the Peninsula Hotel!!! Friends kept commenting that it was the best in Manila and I couldn't agree more!!!

This is a good place to enjoy the grand atmosphere and the live music. The selection of food and beverage is good. Fresh raw materials and reasonable quick service. A good place to finish a day or to have a bite while getting ready for transport. We have never been disappointed here.

They will pull out all the stops for good service. They treated me as royalty. The room was amazing and huge. Real luxury and the food is fantastic. They have live performers in the lobby and they were very good so it made the coffee and drink break after dinner so enjoyable. It is also so close to shopping and... More

Whenever I come to the Peninsula I always hold my lunch or dinner business meetings at the Lobby or the executive club. The food is exquisite and the menu is hand-picked by German chef Mike Wehrle who brings world class taste to Manila. The choice of beverages is vast (the only place in Manila where I could have an organic... More

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. There was a string quartet in the main lobby which added to the ambiance. I was in and out in a short amount of time, while still having a good... More

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!
