Phantasm Darkstar and I, foodies that we are, still went for another stop after an event with free flowing dinner. Around 300 meters away from Bayleaf where we came from, was where this known spot is located. Coco Bango Cafe is the lone restaurant of White Knight Hotel.

Its appeal lies on a vintage look, quite maintained ambiance. Another plus is their live entertainment, a full band that lets you jam with them. They even have an upright bass with them.

It’s still a hotel and price is on the high side. Expect to pay 22% more on top of menu listing, that’s vat and service charge excluded. Since we were full, we opted for a Mudslide to share. Its a mix of Baileys, Kahlua and Vodka. Their mix was strong but strangely appealing.

We also shared Grilled Squid. It’s one of its kind I had. The meat was perfect, not tensile nor raw, just grilled right. The seasoning was on point as well, no need to add additional soy sauce

Crispy pata is not bad, the tinola chicken soup is very good with a tinge of ginger, the nasi goreng has a slight spicy flavor. The place is small & inside white knight hotel near San Agustin Church. It got a lot of great reviews in Foursquare and its a bit higly overrated. We also ordered the grilled squid and its tender not overcooked. Price is not that expensive. Overall its ok but not unique that you would jeep coming back. We also ordered the Norwegian salmon- nothing special.we got free ice cream though for dessert as the waiter sensing we are new to the place :)

This is a restaurant located at the lobby of the White Knight Hotel. My colleagues ate there the day before so I decided to try it with my boyfriend.

If you're going to eat there, you should't be hungry because you will surely be upset with the very slow service! It took them almost an hour to prepare our order and once it arrived, they served the wrong food. After I specifically said pancit bihon twice, which the waiter repeated, they served us pancit canton. I would have been okay with, it if not for the server asking if I was sure it was bihon AFTER they realized they got the order wrong. Worse, they brushed the error off so simply by just saying that if they change it, food will take longer. Obviously they know their service is slow and it was annoying that they left me with no choice.

The country style fried chicken was raw and it tasted really bad; we didn't even try eating it anymore.

The steak that we ordered to be cooked medium was served well done and it was chewy! The steak a la pobre tasted like bistek tagalog with calamansi. What is that?

The shanghai rice was tasteless.

Food is expensive and its not proportionate to the quality and service they offer.

I mentioned this to my colleague and I learned that the crispy pata they ordered a day before was also raw. It had to be returned to be cooked again. Even then, the crispy pata still came out raw.
