THE FESTIVE WEEKEND AT MANILA MARRIOTT CAFÉ

The engaging open-theatre kitchen of the Marriott Café assures every guest that only fresh and delectable cuisine would be served on your plates.  It was a weekend of buffet for the group – dinner and breakfast.


On a rainy Saturday night, we were bound to watch a stage play at the Newport Theater of the Resorts World Manila.  An hour before the show we were seated at the ground floor of the Marriott Hotel to feast on gastronomic offerings of the hotel.

There are a number of stations at the Marriott Café.  Ranging from breads, appetizers, a variety of main courses and colorful desserts.  It is a buffet of local and international favorites.

Seafood buffet called “Ocean’s Harvest” (PhP2,350.00 nett per person) is the café’s theme every Friday and Saturday nights (6:00PM to 10:30PM).  Cooked on every guests’ way and style, there is a wide selection of crustaceans and fish ready to be devoured.

Lobsters and oysters were my personal favorites on the said dinner, after all it is not every day that I get to have lobster for a meal.  If only time is not a constraint, I should have ordered more lobsters to be cooked in a variety.  And besides, I being a certified seafood-lover, nothing is wasted as I sample more of its seafood produce cooked the way I wanted it.  Now, I wanted to go back!

Apart from the given seafood, Japanese cuisine in the form of maki rolls and plateful of sushi is an alternative.  The desserts were a stand out as well with cups of ice cream ready to be served.

Morning came.  The yearning for more hours of sleep was apparent yet we managed to be at the café in a nick of time for breakfast.  

Marriott Café has a total of 205 seating capacity.  It features three (3) private rooms good for 8-10 persons.  And on the last call for breakfast, we were seated on one of the private rooms.  From tapsilog, pancakes, danggit, pastries and eggs benedict - typical breakfast of local and international cuisine were offered which we engaged.

The festive mood we all had for that weekend was even more enhanced by the festive dining at the Marriott Café. Without exaggeration, truly, world class service is what we experienced.
