we went with the whole family on recommendation of a friend.
at P1,800 per head, it was going to be quite an expensive meal by manila standards. but we wanted to treat the family to a good meal. and we were not disappointed.
the restaurant is located in Sofitel Philippine Plaza (used to be Westin) in the CCP Complex right next to the Coconut Palace.
we gorged on oysters, prawns and champagne for appetisers. then couldn’t quite decide on what to eat next. there’s an endless selection of cold cuts, breads, cheese, sushi, grills, pasta, noodles, curries, and a really long line of desserts. my dad and i were comparing dishes we ate and i don’t think i’ve managed to eat any of what he had! my mom was regretting that she wasn’t able to get any halo-halo as she couldn’t possible eat any more.
we were there from the time they opened at 11:30 until they close the buffet at 3:30.
you cannot complain about the selection of food. and all of the stuff i ate tasted great. my dad was complaining about the prawns which he thought were half-cooked and probably not that fresh. but was raving about everything else.
if you intend to be a glutton for a day, this is the place to go. don’t go if you’re on a diet or are paying for a bunch of kids who wouldn’t eat as much (kids under 12 go for 50% off and under 5s go free).
Thanks Simon for the recommendation!
