I've always loved the Pen lobby. I like how there's always live music playing. The sunburst at the lobby's ceiling is very interesting too. My son who joined the Peninsula explorers counted 21 rays of this artwork. I love their ice cream with real frozen fruits!!! I can never get enough!

Very nice food, service is ok. Very practical as there is a service 24/24 hours so if you arrive late or very early from the airport. Excellent service.

Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, snack or tea, or for just a drink, the Peninsula Hotel Lobby is a marvellous setting. Live music in attendance in the evenings.

I was so saddened by the deterioration of the once legendary service at the Lobby; and during the most important New Year dinner and dessert service. A coffee refill shouldn't take half an hour esp when the station was just 10 feet away and after four reminders/follow ups. I guess the pioneers of the Lobby have either moved overseas or... More

A favorite hangout of the family, The Lobby is a classic and a great, relaxing place to hang out in and spend the afternoon. The food is even more laudable, excellent taste, presentable and great plating. We tried the classic ceasar salad and steak and eggs. Staff is friendly and courteous, asking us what else we need. They try their... More

When I think of the Lobby of Manila Peninsula , i think of the mountain of ice cream I used to share with friends when I was in my 20s. This time we tried the pancit canton, the salpicao and french fries. These made me forget the traffic I had to go thru just to meet up. Delicioso The lobby... More

Want to relax after a tiring day, while enjoying good live music and wonderful ambiance? If you are in Makati CBD, head over at The Lobby at the Manila Peninsula. It will certainly cater to whatever you need - meal that reminds you of home, night cap or dessert to satisfy one's sweet tooth.

We were a party of 20 who partook of the Yuletide buffet. No drinks. The carving and the seafood station were winners, while all the rest were losers. The chefs took off early and took their knives with them. They seemed demotivated, perhaps the incentives were not enough.

The Lobby is spectacular and the Lobby eating place is like a very comfortable up-market cafe. The range of food was quite limited but each of us thought our dishes were tasty. One of our party came for the Filipino noodles and halo halo and was not disappointed. I had a reasonable western dish; not large and nothing special. I... More

To be honest , I'm not sure why the lobby warrants a separate listing but it is spectacular. Right now there's a bit of a christmas theme and a real edible gingerbread house so maybe it is worth a visit if you are not already staying there.
