We had diner twice in this restaurant. The buffet offers various dishes the quality of which is good. The staff was friendly and professional. It was the weekend and the restaurant was crowded which slowed down the service of drinks. But overall a good place to dine after a visit to Manila.

Came for breakfast and they have an exceptional selection of western and traditional foods. A great place to start with a health breakfast.

It's my first time here and I would not able to dine in here if it is not with my insurance agent. I know that this restaurant is pricey since it is situated inside a 5 star Fairmont hotel, so I never had any plans to eat here. The place is cozy, clean and the food selections are amazing. All...

Some buffets are disappointing. Some are overwhelming. Spectrum at Fairmont is just right! Feast on lobsters, sushi, steak and even the salads are worth coming back for. I personally loved their seafood selection. It was very fresh and delectable. The dessert station is wonderfully populated as well. Special mention to their chocolate selection - sheets of milk or dark chocolate... More

One eventually ends up sampling assorted Makati hotel food from the sheer frequency of business meetings. This restaurant had attentive staff, but food was just average on the 2 occasions that I had lunched there. Decent, but nothing to come back for with one's family.

Located at the ground floor of Fairmont Hotel, one cannot miss Spectrum. It's interiors are decorated with enormous chandeliers and lights emulating stalactites. High-back chairs and comfortable seats, one can go around the area with ease. A few steps from the tables would be the ample choices of food and dessert, buffet style. The seafood area has limited choices, but... More

We took guests there for brunch on a Sunday and were very disappointed in the spread of food. Service was good but food on offer was no different from a pretty general coffee shop buffet. Nothing exciting at all. The wine we requested was not available. It was interesting that there was a selection of jams and marmalades on each... More
