If you are looking for a Filipino style breakfast that won't really hurt your pocket. I would def suggest this resto!

Great tasting lomi and champorado de coño. The lomi had a lot of sahog with nice a nice garlic flavor. The champorado was thick and chocolatey with just enough amount of sweetness.

I felt a bit weird with religious music playing in the background and the service leaves a lot of room for improvement.The staff were friendly but they seem bored.

Lunch meeting was scheduled here to accommodate one of the attendees who was conducting a workshop nearby.

Our group was the first to partake of the buffet and they served sinigang na baka, sinanglay na tilapia, fish escabeche, kare-kare, chicken barbecue, pork asado, pork hamonado, pandan and adobo rice. They also had a salad station, appetizer station and Dessert was the DIY halo-halo and mango sago.

I tried everything except for the salad, appetizers, pork hamonado and halo-halo. Food was good and very tasty. My favorite was the kare-kare, it had ground peanuts, not just peanut butter, and did not need bagoong. The others were ok. The mango sago was a bit sweet for me so I put in additional ice shavings from the halo-halo station.

Service was not too impressive though. There were only two tables the entire lunch time but we had to walk to the wait staff to ask for water, follow-up some ala carte orders, iced tea refill, etc. This placed used to be packed every lunch time before Globe transferred their Head Office operations in BGC. Still glad they are able to maintain quality of the food albeit the slower business.

We had lunch catered by Lola Maria's while having our 1st General Assembly for PAMDRAP. The food was quite okay. The pasta and beef dishes taste good but the Lumpiang Hubad was too salty. The place also has good ambiance. Over-all our experience went well.

We celebrated my cousin's birthday here and we wanted to try out their lunch buffet. Since this is somehow a family gathering too its a great idea to spend the occasion here. We reserved a small room for us. In my opinion they only have few choices compare to other buffet restaurants i visited. Only "halo halo" is available for dessert but the cute part is "Do it yourself" halo halo. Hope they would be more choices of food, salad, dessert and drinks.

I don't usually like food during seminars but Legend villa's Lola Maria's has my vote as one of the good Resto foods in the metro. They serve one hell of a storm during trainings so you're always full. The pizza and Siomai during am/pm snacks are awesome! 128077

For the lunch buffets, they can never go wrong with their sinigang, Kare-Kare, barbecue, and their vegetable drenched with baked cheese 128561 now how can you say you're not fueled up for the training when your stuffed with good food?! Hahaha 128514

Love their breakfast buffet! The arroz caldo is great as well as pancakes. The biko is great too! Hot choco is the best!

The rest of the meals are average.

Love their breakfast buffets. Wish there was bacon but I keep reminding myself that it's Filipino food.

I'm a sucker of hotel breakfast buffets so I'm biased.

Home Sweet Legend!

Try their Chopsuey and Nasi Goreng! The combination is perfect. Taisan cake is good too!

Their staff offer the best service as usual. :)

Five stars for this place! 127775127775127775127775127775

This is such a backtrack teehee9786 Boyfie and i dined here to celebrate our 3rd year anniversary. Food was great. They serve Filipino dishes. And going to the Legend Villas makes me want to stay overnight there. All in all, good was great. The ambiance is lovely and charming. They also have breakfast and lunch buffet. Want to try it next time.

Yes I did loved Lola Maria's buffet Breakfast. Loved their tapa and make your own goto. Their breakfast and the variety of food and deserts are enough to satisfy such cravings. The restaurant staff and chef are so nice as well. Their food are very well cooked and presented. A value Filipino buffet in Manila. Lola Maria's highly recommended and they are all delicious!

They have the weirdest palabok lasagna here!! But it's good... Really good.

The strawberry cheesecake was also the best. 128521128076

Overall, good food and the service is great. And the price for a buffet isn't that much. Considering that there's parking here and not too much people and not much traffic when getting food. 128522

If you want a chill kind of buffet, this is the place to go! 128513

Pritchon! Pritchon! Pritchon! So goooood and yet so bad (for your health)! Well, anything in moderation, I guess. (You only live once!)

Lola Maria's does this very well. The fried lechon, cut into bite sized pieces and mixed with meat and skin, is wrapped in small lumpia wrappers with lettuce and comes with a nice Hoisin-like sauce. I swear you can pop these into your mouth one after the other until the whole plate is gone.

Lola Maria's also does their buffet quite well. Very good spread of Filipino food from Kare-kare to Inihaw na Bangus to Halaan Soup. They are quick to replenish. They also make sure that the chaffing dishes are kept warm by a steady flame below. (Don't you just hate it when you see the sauce in some dishes solidifying because the food is not kept warm?) 128534128534128534

Ambiance is very inviting and so Pinoy, it reminds me so much of my grandparents' home, warm and cozy. A place after my own heart! 128516

I was hoping may bagnet or kare-kare nung pumunta kami, kaya lang bigo. Probably because it was a monday. The atmospher of the place was good, tahimik and konti yung tao. Again, probably because it was a monday. Food was good but a little pricey pag weekdays (650 php). Will try again on a weekend, baka mas masarap ang inihahain nila.
