Very slow service! They don't know what they are serving. To think there aren't that busy with just a few diners. Didn't expect this for a 5 star hotel.

Chicken sandwich (450PHp) was a hefty sandwich. They used rye bread and generous filling (chicken slices and vegetables). Pwede na for hotel food.

I have almost forgotten how it feels like having your afternoon tea here in Manila Hotel Lobby Lounge. If I'm not mistaken, my last visit here was during my college days, xxx years ago already! Gaaaah, I feel so old! Lol. Anyway, I honestly can't remember how their bibingka and puto bumbong tasted like back then so when the server handed me the menu, I didn't bother looking at it. Told him right away that I'd like to have those native kakanin. 15 minutes or so passed and my orders arrived. The puto bumbong looked very promising in that pretty violet hue while the bibingka was very plain. My mom and I were joking about it because we were actually expecting for a small serving. Much to our delight, Lobby Lounge has big servings of these! Now let's go to the verdict. Taste-wise, puto bumbong is just okay. Hindi pangit ang lasa pero hindi din ganon kasarap. I was a bit disappointed somehow because my expectation was really high. I thought it could surpass Aristocrat's level of yumminess for puto bumbong. It lacked flavor. If not because of the cheese and brown sugar, I think I'm not gonna eat it. Their bibingka was a different story. Whilst it looked so boring and tasteless, this kakanin has lived up to my mom's meticulous taste! It was so fluffy and delicious. I can't fully describe its texture but it was different from the rest yet it has maintained its flavor. Mom finished it right away! Considering how picky my mom is, I can safely say that she liked it. I guess we all have different preference. Kasi ako I want my kakanin/pastries/bread to be sweet while my mom gusto nya yung medyo hinahabol yung lasa. Overall, this place has not lost its appeal to me. Still a good place to hang out while waiting or to have your high tea. Their comfy, elegant couches are perfect for the big chandeliers. Music from the band/piano will soothe you too. They have this calming effect that gets into me whenever I hear them play while looking at the chandelier. Weird ba? Haha! Maybe it's just me but really, this a perfect place to chill. #50kSummerGiveAway

I take the position that generally, apart from the taste of the food, people go to hotels also for their excellent service. This is the Manila Hotel so much was expected of it.

I like their Lobby's decorations every holiday, it is super cute and adorable.

It was my first time to eat at their lobby. I was very disappointed. It took forever to catch the staff's attention to give us their menus. The staff that attended to us was really unpleasant. She was neither friendly nor accommodating. Worse, she as inefficient. When we told her our orders, which consisted mainly of burger and lasagna, she had to repeat it several times. At first she look puzzled like she had no clue that such items were on the menu. It was frustrating.

Food took forever to arrive. The presentation of the burger as seen above was good. It also tasted good, it was cooked well.

The lasagna they served was also a big serving and there was some pesto on top of the cheese. I ended up ordering lasagna as there were not a lot of choices on the menu. I wanted something light. I could not find anything light and appetizing on the menu at that time.

Overall, my dining experience here was just okay. Service was bad. The staff was borderline rude and it took forever to cook and prepare our food. Note that there was only 1 other occupied table at that time. The food was not really that great. As service was poor and food taste is just okay, I feel that there was no value for my money here and I will probably not hang out in his lobby any time soon. I would prefer to stay at other hotels.

There's a waitress who's very unpleasant to us her name is Steff and every customer doesn't want to be treated like that.

We enjoyed the coffee, hate the waitress!!!

Beware this girl or waitress named Steffi! She is Bastos. I think she need to be trained on how to handle customer relations! I'm asking something and she made "irap" on me! 128548128548

Classic Fil-Spanish architecture (well, i am not really sure). The ambiance is so great. Foods and drinks are a bit pricey though.

Christmas season is always synonymous to Manila Hotel's yummy bibingka.10084️ With salted egg, Quesong Puti and desiccated coconut, this dish paired with coffee is perfect to relax the afternoon away in the cozy old-school lobby lounge. I can do without the sugar on top though, next time I'll ask them not to include it.

I love the chandeliers here, so grand. This season they decked out the lobby with nutcracker soldiers? And santa's helpers. So cute!
