When you are really hungry or when you want to give in to a voracious appetite, this would be a nice place to head to. Food choices are varied and quite acceptable. Flavors are palatable. Environment is clean. Area is accessible. Overall, its A ok.

Appalling treatment by staff. Senior citizen discount was not given to my 74 year old mother because she was no longer a Filipino passport holder even though she is Filipino. Clearly this place is happy to take 'foreigners' money but not considered good enough for their promotions. My six year old daughter's height was measured twice just to make sure... More

Maybe I will not have discovered this place without her invitation.the location is in front of Manila Bay and it opens at 5:50 pm, maybe, they could have capitalized the famous sunset of Manila Bay. The must have a good reason for not doing this. The food is regular, except it's eat all you... More

We decided to have lunch here instead of, The Cafe at the Hyatt City of Dreams. It's a party of 9 members dining and no regret at all. We wanted some family members to indulge an exquisite, five star dining experience (they been here many times, in fact , they insisted Buffet 101). It's my first time to dine here,... More
