My daughter Adelheid L Sweet 16 Birthday celebration with her close friends last Feb 27 a day after her birthday. This time she celebrate it with her friends and of course with us her family and with her grandparents were there.

Gillian Gail Dessert buffet was the perfect venue since it was an eat all u can dessert buffet just across Ateneo , located at Oracle Residences and Hotel in Katipunan. Glad that they are open for party function like this. We reserve for 17 pax for only 5k. 2 hours use of the area. The price is around 300. They have pasta, nachos, kikiam, squid balls, Shanghai, Siomai, Siopao, all kinds of desserts from cakes, macarons, they even have ice cream , halo-halo, all kinds of desserts for short.

Service was good and nice place for bday parties or get together. The place was neat and they have wifi too.

My daughter had a successful sweet 16 bday celebration 9786128077128077128077

Dear Diet,
I know I promised you something.. but who can resist a dessert buffet?! Ofcourse, not me! I'll be back soon...
Love, Casey D.

After a home-made boodle.. my friends and I went to Gillian's awhile ago for the finale. We were there around 5pm and there were no customers. Yay. The place is lovely. Small but elegant looking. I think it can accommodate 25-30pax. We have not yet decided where to seat but we were already munching on the cupcakes. There were several cakes, candies, marshmallows, cupcakes, panna cottas,creme brulee, ice cream.. for the pantanggal umay side they have siomai, nachos with cheese and jalapeno dip, spaghetti and pesto pasta, siopao, chicken balls, kikiam and tikoy. They also gave us a mini menu for pre-orders consist of mais con hielo, ice scramble, halo-halo, fruit crepe and palitaw. For the drinks.. they have red tea, blue lemonade, water, coffee and tea.

I love the red velvet cheesecake.. it was smooth and didnt have that sponge-y texture. The nachos were also a fave. I think we had 5 plates of nachos with lots of cheese and jalapenos. Had I think 7pcs of shrimp siomai. Hahaha it was tasty I swear. And the palitawwwwwww!!!!!! Didnt expected that I will like it but i think their palitaw is the best they have, it was not our usual palitaw, it was crunchy on the outside, drizzled with brown thick sugar and peanut butter! I had 6 palitaws. 128514128514128514 Their marshmallows were good, i like the matcha flavored marshmallows with matcha filling. 10084
The pasta per my friend were just okay and told me it has this taste that kids would love. The ice scramble tasted like those from my childhood... the brazo de mecedes was sweet and ohhh so soft!. 128516 their other cakes were just okay and almost tasted the same.

The crew were nice, Though they were hiding on their kitchen area. I dont know if they were just busy. But when we request anything they really do it fast.

Dessert buffet and bottomless drinks is 299php good for 2hours. 128077

Went here last Wednesday with my daughter Adelheid L. After we had our Ash from Church we went to Katipunan to reserve her sweet 16th birthday party with close friends.

This is the perfect venue for a sweet 16th just like my daughter who will turn 16 real soon. They served sweet desserts buffet here and teens will surely loved this especially if you love sweets or desserts. Not only that they have pasta , and rice meals too just add 100 for the rice meal. Buffet price is almost 300 pesos.

Went to check this place with my daughter Adelheid L for her 16th bday party venue. The place was small but has a nice ambience. The owner was very accommodating and very hands on too as well as the staffs.

They have fish balls, Siomai , Siopao, Shanghai rolls, two kinds of pasta, spaghetti with red sauce and pesto. Then for desserts they have a lot, brownies, cupcake , truffles, candies,cakes, macarons. You can even have your crepe, halo-halo , ice cream etc and don't forget to try their best seller palitaw.

They have wifi here and cost only 299 pesos. Dessert buffet sulit 128077128077128077127874127851127850127856127846

This cozy place across Ateneo is one of favorite places to chill. What I like most about this little dessert place is their ambiance. It is a good place to run away from stresssss. 128514
They offer different desserts - from palitaw to crème brûlée. They also serve siomai and siopao which my friends and I like. You may also choose between a cup of coffee or tea.
They have a nice playlist. (You can also connect your phone if you wish to)
Best place for those with sweet tooth and for those who love IG-able places. HAHA

I felt betrayed. :( My officemate told me that this is paradise for people with sweet tooth. However, I felt like I wasted 300php. It's as if what we're paying for is the ambiance of the place and not the food. Or, maybe I'm biased (cause my sister's a pastry chef... And a real good one!)

It's a small café at the 3rd floor of the Oracle. At first, I thought, it would be as big as Roku with cakes with two or three tiers, with cupcake towers, etc. I was thinking it was kind of grand. But when I entered the place, there were only two tables occupied (one was where my officemates were and the other was occupied by a couple) and I saw that they only have few varieties of cakes. I was quite disappointed. But, I gave their cakes a chance, cause who am I to actually judge without tasting them, right?

I was kind of intrigued that the cream cheese on top of the red velvet cake (slices) was kind of frosty. I also tried their blueberry cake. I was disappointed at first bite. :( The cake felt like it was overcooked and it was quite crumbly. It wasn't too sweet though, I'd give them that. But, the blueberry on top of the cake tasted as if it's really old blueberry out of the can. :(

I love red velvet cakes as much as I love hakaw, but this is the first time that I'm gonna say that the Brazo de Mercedes tasted better.

Never going back here though. :(

My first dessert buffet and my 6th buffet this year 128517

I thought this will not be enough for lunch hihi IT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH!!!

I think it was P299 per head and you get to eat for 3hrs from the time you start eating and not from the time allotted by the resto (It's in a hotel by the way across ADMU)

The place was so nice, pastel colors everywhere hihi 127800 I like the crew esp that one guy who assisted us with a very friendly face hehe

They have a wide variety of cakes, chocolates, ice creams, tarts, cookies, cupcakes, churros, crepes, macarons, gummy bears, candies etc hihi

We were the first to come so we were also the first to eat everything! Hahaha i love the unlimited nachos, I think I consumed all of it lol

Their beverages are also unlimited like coffee, tea and iced tea 128076🏼

If you're into desserts, this is will be your heaven!!! 127846127851127856127850127855127854127849127853127848127847127852

Their staff were very friendly and accomodating. The moment we got there, someone immediately gave us a table, and served us water. After he took our order, he served us our choice of drink (that serves as a neutralizer for the ultra sweet flavours will get into our taste buds). I got tea, while my little sister got brewed coffee.

I chose the most basic of the set: the one that offered only 3-hours of unlimited sugar splurge and unlimited drinks; while my sister chose the one with rice topping.

The rice topping was okay. It was a really simple meal, and I didn't expect it to be very fancy since it costs only a hundred pesos.

My first plateful consisted of a cupcake, a mini apple pie, banana bread and yema cake. I highly recommend their red velvet cupcake because it's legit! It is not one that uses cheap and fake ingredients. I also recommend the yema cake because it was soft and it really tasted like yema.

Kuya served us a hot (newly torched) creme brulee. I really appreciated his thoughtfulness and super good service.

Gillian Gail also had some "pampatanggal umay" food like sio mai and sio pao to reduce the food sickness (sweet sickness in this case) we often feel after consuming a lot in buffets.

Overall, Gillian Gail served quality desserts. Even if they do not offer a grand buffet spread, the desserts they have tasted really good and legit! Hindi nila tinitipid sa lasa.

The place is a bit small but the ambiance is great. We tried their "Sugar Rush", an hour of dessert buffet experience which costs 180php. What I liked the most is their creme brulee and the "pampatanggal umay" nachos 128523 I'm just a bit disappointed because I wasn't able to try their homemade mallows and macarons since I was already full that time. 128517 Also, I suggest that they should have a list of their "by request" desserts so the customers will know what they offer aside from those displayed on their long table. 128521

P.S. I have to give props to their crews. They are very friendly and accommodating. 128588128149

The brazo de mercedez is a must try along with their home made mallows!! The pampatangal umay food (filipino streetfoods: kikiam, squiaball; siomai; and nachos) tastes really good as well!!

This strawberry crepe from Gillian Gail Dessert Buffet is just fine. Although I wasn’t a big fan of the strawberry syrup they used. It has this “Tempra” after taste if you know what I mean. Place was fairly packed and their selections are decent. Pricing is reasonable and the service could use some more training. It was slow and the servers seemed confused at times. Major factor could be the volume of costumers but that should not be an excuse.

I loved most of their desserts but my favorite would be the crème brûlée! I think it's a great idea to include savory items such as nachos, siomai, and siopao to the buffet to balance out the flavors. It's definitely worth the price cause we were so full plus they were serving Twinings tea! Yay! 128522

Love love love the ambiance!!

Unlimited cakes and nachos and siomai and creme brulee for P299. What a steal!!

This is my second time here and I'm quite surprised with their made-to-order menu that came with the buffet. Just look at that photo! Its a palitaw! A sosyal palitaw! Hahaha.

Anyway, I heard they're going have new items soon so.. See you again soon, Gillian Gail! :)

All this for just 299. Cupcakes were hard as rocks, but it might be because we came in late at night. Anyway, the unlimited creme brulee and ice cream makes it more than worth it!
