Definitely a five-star in terms of quality and service. On top of all these, you get the best bang for the buck if you avail Citi's 50% off promo up until October 31st.

Bought Deal Grocer coupons for this restaurant. They have a few slots for free parking, which is good. The waitress who served us was clearly nervous, dont know why :).

First order was an English cut rib eye steak. Yum! It had the right amount of fat to make the steak delicious.

My order was surf and turf set meal. The beef was bland (comparing it to the rib eye), the two pc prawns was small and underwhelming. The mushroom soup was good; caesar salad was good too. The chocolate mousse for dessert was fantastic!

Nice cozy place for intimate meal.

Their steaks are tender and yummy! We had tomahawk ribeye and T bone prime and they were both really good! Worth every buck!

Service: Great! Waiters are friendly, efficient and fast. Only comment is they only have 2 highchairs given the size of their restau.

Will definitely come back!

Cowrie grill by Manila hotel was not exactly the kind of place someone my age will go but the option of planet grapes was far fetched do we settled here for our cheese and wine night. it was a bit ate so we decided we'd go have dinner too. i ordered the thai beef salad and its so good. the grilled pork + fresh vegetables not to mention the dressing was exactly my kind of salad. it was heavy already. price a bit steep, the cheese platter was not much of a platter and we'd have better wine if we'd be extragant ( the list was quite extensive) but we settled for what our budget can carry. till when we become doctors shall we indulge.

service was great even helping us with our selections

Manila Hotel is the country's premiere and flagship hotel. It is just natural that not only do they have incredible hotel services but also dining as well. First stop was Cafe Ilang-Ilang, located at the hotel itself, featured an exquisite buffet tour of the seven continents (details here).

The following day, we were treated to a fine dining experience at The Cowrie Grill, which was previously located beside Cafe Ilang-Ilang at the hotel premises. However, to further expand the buffet, The Cowrie grill was transferred to Promenade in Greenhills.


It was an amazing experience. You'd really get why fine dining restaurants tend to get a bit pricey. Because more than just the delicious food, the service and the ambience, the whole dining experience is worth it.

This was the degustation menu prepared for us that day.

Lobster bisque with flambe'd lobster tail medallion. it was rich and creamy and full of flavor from the lobster.

Maitre'd Caesar Salad. The salad greens were crisp and fresh. The dressing was prepared from scratch tableside, so you'd really see how to make a classic Caesar salad dressing.

Watermelon sherbet. The sherbet was served as a palate cleanser. Palate cleansers are served to clear the tastebuds off of the strong flavors of the dressing.This is to fully appreciate the main course.

Angus beef rib. The steak was perfectly done; medium rare and every bite just melts in your mouth. it was well seasoned and the roasted garlic did wonders on the steak.

The steak was served with three sauces; mushroom gravy, bearnaise sauce and peppercorn gravy.

Baked potato with sour cream and chives was the side dish of our main course. It was delicious and perfectly seasoned.The sour cream really balanced the bacon bits

Baked Alaska. This was the prized dessert. It was sstrawberry and vanilla ice cream inside a sponge cake. It was then covered in meringue and then torched. It was then poured with strawberry syrup and then flambe'd with brandy.

We were also served chocolate crinkles which were very decadent. It was chocolatey but not too sweet. It tasted a bit like tablea which I really like.

During the main course, we were served cocktails to pair with the dish. I had the Cherry Passion, which had a sweet and fruity aroma.

and the Hennessy Martini whihc was sprinkled with cinnamon. It was a bit warm and a bit christmasy. Probably because of the cinnamon sprinkled on top.

I also had a taste of lambanog which paired really great with the steak. I did not have the chance to take a picture of it because it was really good.

Overall, The Cowrie Grill is truly a gastronomic experience, It was a feast of flavors and aroma. Thank you Cowrie Grill and The Manila Hotel for this one of a kind opportunity.

The ambiance is so nice.. The staffs are so polite and accomodating. We ordered pasta which cost at least 350 pesos.. the taste was good though if I'll compare with Cibo Pasta with truffle.. I will still choose the latter 9996🏼️. The Baked Alaska is good also and its cool how they prepared them since they fired the wine before spreading it in Baked alaska. :) We billed 2700 I guess for the 4 of us. Overall it was still a good experience. 128522

My Pre 35 birthday treat for myself last Sunday with my family at Cowrie Grill by Manila Hotel at Promenade Greenhills 3.

This is really one of my bucket list. #JourneyTo35

Finally I was able to go to this place last Sunday. The place was elegant , of course it's by Manila Hotel. The seats were really fine up to the utensils. We had sinful desserts. I went here for one reason and that is to try their Baked Alaska, it's a dessert by the way. We enjoyeds this freshly made ice cream encased in a soft meringue dome drizzled with a special brandy sauce that is flambeed tableside. I like the server showed in front of us how to do it , the dessert is on fire lol amazing !128293I'm drooling on how it looks like especially when I took picture of it , the strawberries were so fresh too127827
This Baked Alaska is a must try here. Then we had New York Cheescake and it comes with three flavors , mango , blueberry and strawberry 127826127819127827 everything was delish and last but not the least if your a chocolate lover we had this Chuao Chocolate Gateau! The chocolate was heaven 127851127856. I so loved the desserts here and guess what with a very affordable price 128077 Service was superb and they have wifi .

This place is definitely worth coming back .

Best service and really really good food!

The 390gram prime rib is great for sharing and they served the steak just the way i wanted it - medium rare. The baked potato that came with it was also so delicious!

I had my first baked alaska in Cowrie Grill also and I loved it!

Some of the original cowrie shells that decorated the restaurant when it was still on its original location were still preserved and presented as décor at this satellite branch. The ambiance is sophisticated without being snobbish. Five start hotel restaurant dining experience as expected.

Service was stellar... wait staff well informed... attentive but not overtly as to intrude .

Maitre'd caesar salad...we settled for this to share which was prepared tableside while explaining all the ingredients in perfect resonance & execution ... Like a show well rehearsed .

Mixed seafood...prawns, lobster tail, scallop, seabass, N.Z. Mussels.....with the exquisite oceanic best catch sweet flavours flooding in my mouth with ever bite was blissful.

Risotto was moist , flavorful ... simply impeccable ...be returning to try the steaks next time coz I've heard it's what they do best

Just wish they don't charge 511088️ prices here as well128541

Fridate with daddy-o! Ha! Since libre niya, gora! :))

I usually order for myself, but I wasn't really hungry that time so I said I'll just take some from whatever he's having. 128517
I think it was prime rib new york something? It was pretty big. And since we had bread, french onion soup and salad before the steak... we weren't able to finish it. 128529

I want to try their dessert next time... 128523

This is probably the first restaurant (out of hotel) venture of Manila hotel i know (or is it not?). Going to this resto is just like going to Manila hotel itself. The design of the resto was very classy, they even have a dress code for their customers. Shorts and slippers are not allowed so if you're planning to go here better dress appropriately.

Majority of their main dishes are steaks so i got their 10 oz sirloin steak cooked medium rare with pesto linguine on the side. The steak was good and tasty. Initially I felt that the price was too high (php1300) but when they served it, it was really HUGE. I had to share it because I couldn't finish the whole thing. We also ordered desserts but i failed to get the names and they were also good.
