It's been a while since I last dined here! So much has changed. Food selection has improved thoroughly and service much much better.

Their steak is quite oily for me, they didnt even have peppercorn sauce or red wine sauce. Its in the freezer pa daw kasi. But then they have the bulgogi beef slices which I really love cause they were very tasty and not oily.

They have DIY tacos and french fries. Just try the tacos. The pasta section's staff are very very friendly and quick to attend to my needs. I asked for white sauce based pasta and they even served it to my table. Before that I was inquiring about risotto and they told me thats only available during weekends, but later on as I was getting food for the third time one of their staff offered to cook risotto for me so I immediately said yes! Risotto was good, loved how it tasted although super kabusog even if few lang yung serving.

Didnt bother with the Chinese section because I eat Chinese food all the time. I tried their makis and was pretty satisfied even with the salmon sashimi. I asked for a california temaki and they gave me two made on the spot! Yay! So good.

They have a cute milkshake station, but may I just warn you that the milkshakes are too sweet! Desserts are okay, recommending the panna cotta and and creme brulee.

For the rate, it's pretty much okay, food isn't really that much but pwede na!

Here's my past review for reference

For a really large space you would expect a wide selection of dishes. It is as if they've curated what's best and they put it in their buffet area.

Service is good and food is so-so. Love that they help you make your salad, and that their dessert bar is worth the visit.

Their truffle fries don't even taste like truffle fries. But other than that the others are okay.

Went here twice already and it's always the same. Cant recommend it for dining with kids because the casino is literally beside it and you can see people playing.

Had a delightful lunch here today and most of what I ate were good.

They have Italian, American, Japanese, Chinese and Filipino cuisine.

The choices are limited per cuisine but it will get you through.

You can even ask them to bake their scallops with cheese and butter over at the seafood section.

Below is a shortlist of the items I liked:
-Truffle Cream Pasta
-Carbonara Pizza
-Heated Ceasar Salad
-Roast Beef
-Tempura
-Mango Creme Brulee
-Milk Chocolate Almond Coin
-White Chocolate Truffles

Plus, you get 25% off if you pay using a Metrobank Creditcard.

One word: WAGYU! My review is done and now I'm out. Haha.

I'm impressed with the great interiors of the place, and the attentiveness of the staffs. Everyone is accommodating and this chef Jess at the Italian sector is very pretty and nice.

Food wise, I must admit that the selection is very limited. With only a small counter for Japanese food though it has the sashimi counter for your japanese needs. They have peking duck too on another small counter, while having another one for cold cuts, cheese, grilled meat, italian, desserts and Thai. Honestly, I'd prefer the food selection at other buffets though. Don't get me wrong, everything is tasty but for a japanese lover like me, I always prefer a big boat of maki and sushi food but they failed that one. But one notable food here is their generous Wagyu beef. Oh so good! I like it medium rare with the mushroom sauce and there you have a deal breaker. Everything is carefully cooked and prepared by the chefs too which means you are ensured that they're all served fresh and in good quality. So that's another plus for me.

For 1800+ for lunch, this worth to giving a try sometime especially if you're within the area or if you're staying over at the hotel.

The buffet of The Cafe Hyatt City of Dreams is totally worth the price, a really value for the money I can say. When you're looking for a place that is not so mainstream with good food and cooking in an open kitchen, this place is a very good one.

It's located at the Ground Floor of The Hyatt City of Dreams Manila. When speaking of the place, it is so accessible and easy to find. Inside the Cafe, I'm overwhelmed with the cozy ambiance, spacious, and with the buffet set up. They have mouthwatering food stations namely The Italian, The Grill and Griddle, The Deli, The Asian, The Comfort and Favorites, and The Pastry.

The food, unlike other buffet, they serve it freshly from the chefs hand. With live culinary, I observe that they're just cooking or serving right amount of food so you'll be eating them hot on your table. The Cafe is known for what they call The Beast, it is the Mayura Wagyu Beef. In 1st bite, I've wanted the 2nd to the nth right away. You'll taste how it undergone meticulous marinating to roasting. Their pizza is kept warm and so enticing to eat. Their Sashimis are fresh, especially the Tuna Sashimi because they'll cut it infront of you. The dimsums are Binondo-taste-like. All the Pastries keep me coming back for more. Overall it was 10/10 for all the food.

Their friendly and approachable Chefs and Staffs are bonus. :) We'll definitely coming back!

Total bill for dinner for 2 people with taxes - P 3518.61
Total money we paid - P 18.61.

Thanks to my tita's complimentary City of Dreams voucher which she gave us, I and my son enjoyed the cheapest, fanciest dinner we've ever had to pay for. We dined here April 2015. So not sure if their prices changed already.

Loved all the seafood available. I feasted on super fresh prawns and crabs, and their steak. Didn't try the other dishes as I don't like mixing my food. My son ate a lot of pizza and pasta. I liked their pasta station, I was able to drizzle a little pesto on my shrimps. I had them de-shell my shrimps which they did.

Desserts were amazing. You know they use good chocolate, not the Níu kind of dessert. Loved that they had hazelnuts too which I of course added to my crepe. Those pistachio balls were so good.

My son was injured the time we went here and the hotel provided us with a wheelchair and attendant to bring us to the restaurant and back. I loved that they offered to wheel him when he needed to go to the banyo, assisted him with whatever food he wanted. No sungit at all from them. I didn't expect to like it here as I'm not a fan of buffets. We just came in here to use the vouchers and left genuinely happy with our experience here.

What I didn't like was the long walk compared to if we went on foot. Plus we had to make a detour because my son is a minor and we can't pass through the casino floor. The indoor air conditioned restaurant row reeked of cigarette smoke and had smokers in the hallway which is the reason we're never dining in any of the restaurants here. I'm glad we didn't smell that in the cafe.

Buffet for breakfast and lunch? Don’t Judge. 128129🏻

Yes, we had buffet lunch and buffet breakfast on the next day. (hehe) It was really a wonderful and fulfilling experience. Their buffet contains a wide range of dishes, they have different stations, to offer Japanese, Italian, American, French and Asian cuisine.

Let us first explore what’s in their lunch buffet. I’d like to give you some hints on which to choose first, get a clam chowder in the The Beef station, or go crazy over laksa or any noodles of your choice in the Noodle station, and while you’re at it, grab some slices of pork belly too. If you’re a fan of sushi and sashimi, you can stay at the Jap area for as long as you like and eat their sumptuous fish.

I’d like to highlight the best part of the lunch buffet here in The Café, it is called “The Beast”. Why is it called The Beast, probably because it’s so huge that its leg alone can weigh up to 100 lbs. plus it’s a Mayura wagyu beef leg from South Australia. Did you know that Hyatt is the only hotel serving in Manila that serves the Mayura Station Wagyu beef from Australia?

The Mayura Station Wagyu Beef Leg undergoes a 72-hour marination process plus a 24-hour slow roast in the oven. The result is a delectable, tender, juicy and melt-in-the-mouth Wagyu beef steak with a unique and exquisite dining experience for everyone.

For the breakfast buffet, they offer extensive variety of dishes too. Don’t forget to make room desserts.

Oh and one more thing I like about here is that, they will cook your food first so not everything will go to waste and freshly cooked will be served to you.

As expected, the buffet spread was enormous... From porcetta, pizza, pasta, various yakitori, grilled lamb, salmon, shrimp, sushi, sashimi, cheeses, hams, cold cuts, dimsum, truffle fries, fresh crabs, shrimps, mussels... Whew! So much more and there's still the dessert spread! Definitely not for those on a diet... Worth every peso! 128522128055128077

This would be my post-oral revalida celebration. Although they may not be as extensive as the other buffets, I'd say they made up for it by giving really high quality dishes.

Dimaum was absolutely fresh and delicious, that type of dimsum that wasn't steamed over and over.

The dessert line for me though was the winner of the day. Everyone has to try their creme brulee!

Currently my favorite breakfast buffet!128525

Woke up early last Friday looking forward to a hearty breakfast and pool time!10084️ we chose to load up on carbs before hitting the pool...

The restaurant is located near the lobby. It's simple yet elegant in feel, done in dark tones. It's actually pretty big, though divided in sections for a more intimate feel...

Choices were overwhelming!

They really try to appeal to an international audience with their food. They had a lot of cheeses and pastries to choose from to start you off with. Went straight to the taho station, ignoring the sushi and salad nearby... Walked over to the egg station for my usual omelet- very fluffy and good for practically 5 people, shucks! Different sausages were available along with bacon (you can ask them to cook yours further if you want it crispy), tocino, and danggit... They even have cute personal tapsilog containers, ready for consumption... For the Chinese guests they have congee and viands already set up... For the health conscious, fruit smoothies were available along with a huge selection of fruits. I loved the waffle and pancake station, where you customize your waffle in any which way you choose! Yummy!

But the detail I really liked was that you can get unlimited Yakult! Ok na ok na si tiyan! 128522

If you like maarte coffee instead of brewed, go straight to the coffee machine for your macchiata, latte or cappucino fix... Brewed coffee available upon request...

Staff were really great and they will help put you in a happy mood. But I'm sure the food will do that for you anyway!128513

Good. Not a fan of breakfast buffets or any buffet for that matter. Their selection is pretty diverse. If there's bacon and chocolate croissant in the spread i am super okay already.

Their bacon not that crispy. Croissant good but cold. The coffee though! Very good! And their selection of freshly squeezed fruit juices are wonderful as well.

Will i come back? Maybe. Is the value for money worth it? That i am not so sure of.

One of the best Breakfast Buffet ever.127860

Celebrated Mothers Day breakfast here at The Hyatt Cafe. Since we check in at Hyatt, we are entitled for two complimentary buffet breakfast and since we were five, we pay additional for my mom and two kids.

Ive been to different hotels already, I've been to different buffet but this one is different, something new to my sight. Maybe the food selection is not just a typical buffet in a hotel restaurant.

The interior was nice and the place was big. Staffs really pay attention on our needs even if they have a lot of customers to be served. We seated comfortably in a couch with throwpillow, what a relaxing place to have breakfast and the AC was so strong.

They have this Begian waffle station, love the waffles there, then the fish and chips section, they are the only hotel who served this on breakfast and i love the presentation, they have laksa station but not available that time so i just have my mami noodle soup, got chinese food, pizza and the pastries like chocolate croissant is my favorite.

Price is around 1t pesos only. A must try hotel breakfast buffet if your already sick on a usual typical breakfast buffet

I enjoyed our dinner buffet here. Aside from the fact that it wasn't crowded and the service was really good, they had a very good selection. Spread wasn't that many coz they only had 5 stations, but the food they served was better than most buffet places I've been to. Loved the dessert station.

You would be satisfied with the food selection they offer. It might be the longest..... Or a lot to choose from.... Or the worlds selection 128522 but everything offered is the best. Not crowded. Ambience is nice. Not cramped.
