The Manor Le Chef restuarant opens at 6am we actually arrived early we where greeted by the Manor guards and we told the that we came for the breakfast they told us that it was opening at six and we can inquire inside. The restaurant...reception greeted us and took sat us a on the restaurant /hotel lobby dinning areas as they prepared the food. The reception asked to see the vaccination cards if we had them and my mobile number. Then had us start the buffet meal. It was a mix of Filipino dishes, standard egg station, bacon station, congee station, Taho Station, Cereal Area, Cofee and Tea Stations, Salad Bar and bread and pastries area. The vigan sausages I had where really good, add that with the dried fish where really good. The surprise was the egg station output it was very caramelized onions together with the tomatoes, mushroom some chicken strips with a touch of salt and pepper. For a quick cook time for the onions to come out that way was very good. The food taken together with the foggy yet not too cold morning weather in the garden area of the hotel is really nice it gives a relaxed feeling. By the way didnt share any of the restaurant photos as there are people I dont know of in the shots instead what you can see as you dine on the garden are can be seen to the photos.More

Coming back home after 3 years and I expect the same great food. Unfortunately on 8 June we had the set menu for dinner and everything was SALTY. I was disapointed.

We hesitated about the buffet breakfast but glad we did. So much good food to choose from. Excellent coffee too, although if you wanted any fancy coffee expect a long wait as the restaurant is always full.

Eating out isn't just about the place, and the food.... it's a total experience thing. The fact that it's hard to get the attention of any wait staff because they have to scurry around serving guests at more than 20 people per server in a...classy restaurant says it all. Food was good. Ambiance is still tops in baguio. Never seen this thing happen before. I hope this was a fluke and that I went on a day where too many absences occurred. Good thing the bar staff started helping out. You can do better.... hope this thing is solved when I come back.More

The food, as usual, was good. My son loved his caesar salad. I liked the baked mushroom with filo pastry. The ambiance at the tent was great. The only thing i didn’t like were the musicians.

Arrived at the restaurant at 8:30pm so it wasn’t crowded at all. We asked to be seated at the tent area, at the farthest table and they obliged — although it took about 10 minutes for them to clean it up. Ordered the set dinner...for Php1,500 per pax. Our server, Argie, was very efficient and accommodated our daughter’s request for substitutes, since she is allergic to gluten. They served the courses promptly. Serving for the salad, soup and dessert were a bit on the small side. Serving for the main course was more generous. Food was excellent. Two thumbs up! 👍🏻👍🏻 I suggest coming here at 6pm or after 8pm to avoid the crowd. __________ As for the Le Chef Bakery: I bought pasalubongs here, like fruit cake (quite dry), ube (tasted like gata), ensaymada (mediocre). The staff who packed my orders was also mediocre. She doesn’t verbally respond to instructions, playing deaf. ☝🏻 Restaurant experience was excellent. Bakery experience and taste were mediocre.More

Loved the dining ambiance. Feels elegant. Buffet breakfast was a controlled buffet. Sumptuous selection. From bacon, local cuisine, pancakes , waffles and even an omelette station. Let me remind that they are using Benguet province coffee and offer either tea or hot chocolate. It is...not included in their room package so expect non hotel guests going there also. Buffet dinner was also controlled. They use an expansive garden tent to accommodate huge number of guests. Reservation is a must. Highlights of the buffet were the steak and lamb carving station. Must try are the pasta station and of course the warm bread rolls to go with the meat entrees. Highly Recommended.More

You are paying for the ambiance and experience, not really the food. Other buffets (vikings, yakimix, etc) can easily beat Le Chef in terms of food varieties and quality. Was really excited and had high expectations given the price but was sadly disappointed!

We tried their New Year's Day buffet and frankly, it isn't worth the price. 2,500 is too expensive for such a mediocre menu. For something that was advertised as an international spread, the food choices were very limited. Main course dishes consisted of lamb, beef,...chicken, pork, shrimp, veggies, and two types of rice. There was also roast lamb and beef and a sushi station that only offered salmon sashimi and some maki. All in all, there was a total of 17 dishes to choose from--drinks weren't included (you'd have to shell out an extra 400 to get some sodas). The ambiance was great, though. But for the prize, it's just not worth it (for comparison, Dad's offers far more options for just 1k, drinks included!)More

Garden is too crowded, not sure why they're allowing non diners nor guests stay in the garden's banig set up. Some people were literally bringing their own food from outside then hang out in the garden. Lol.
