Our table that was reserved was located at the extension room which was far from the buffet area, but Stephany found a way to transfer us. So thankful for that. Dranrev on the other hand was so attentive to our needs and always anticipated what...we need. Thank you so much Stephany and Dranrev for this memorable experience. Thankful for the both of you.More

We did not use Spiral for lunch and dinner but had breakfast every morning during our stay at the Sofitel . Staff super great, food was amazing, green tea serving superb, lots of choices. We felt like royalty. See you in a few weeks.

Environment was nice, however I was seated far away towards the exit in the bar end of the restaurant. It was definitely a long walk to get to the various ateliers. Food was sub-par for the price. The variety was there but the quality is...definitely not matching, especially when I paid close to 4000 PHP for a meal there. The best dish there ironically was the thai tom yum soup. Ice cream variety was basic but the flavours were decent, I give them that. Beef and lamb was overcooked slightly and tough on the jaws. Dim sum were normal, and so were the seafood bucket and sashimi and nothing to rave about, except that they were free flow. No free flow of lobster, crabs, oysters, scallops etc, items that you would expect in a buffet of a similar pricing tier. Flavours were mediocre and patrons to the restaurant can do themselves a favour and head out of philippines and try the numerous buffets elsewhere at similar pricing but with much greater quality and value.More

My family had a wonderful breakfast at Spirals today. The food was delicious. But what really made the experience complete was the EXTRA service we got from our server, Dani Ann, who helped from steadying the table, checking on our needs, making us smile with...her comments and generally making us feel well cared for. Shout out also to Chef Pab who made a mean mushroom and cheese omelette! Overall, great service to be had here.More

Save your money and go to a cheaper 999 peso per head please. Even worse than how it was in 2020/2021. Dessert spread was poor. Only good thing was the chocolate fondue which all other cheap buffets have. Tempuras are like crunchy pancakes, they can’t...even do tempuras right. Poor food selection. No more foie gras. Wine glass is at 1k/glass. Cheese selection- CHEAP! Fake Brie out of pasteurized milk.More

Bad start, they lost my booking despite me showing proof on my phone. Reluctantly I was offered a table in the conservatory and then they later upgraded that to the inside where I had originally booked. So many items out of stock or coming soon....Most foods were dry and overcooked. The beef was tough, the lamb overcooked and the seafood station had a very poor selection., the scallops being the smallest I have ever seen. Woeful prawn tempura, cold and soggy. The cheese and cold cuts station were excellent but everything else let it down. No not again.More

People are great! The food and service are amazing! They make sure that they uphold safety and sanitation through their standard procedures. Staff is observed to be strict on this - which is something very, very good!

My first time I wasn't paying, it was fun company, and the food was colorful and forgettable. The second time there my guest and I ended up with terrible food poisoning which kept us away for a couple of years. My last time there it's...basically a place where unless you get unli-champagne and use it (which is fun and expensive), have the buffet discount card (expensive but not insulting), the charade of style over substance becomes obvious. The constant ferrying back and forth with small plates of "ok lang" options, the fact that it promises way more than you can really enjoy, and, meh: unimaginative smoke and mirrors. Third and last time.More

This was always THE highlight of our visit-the breakfast buffet. All of the food was cold. The choices had changed considerably. Some of the food was old and shouldn't have been served. The offer for the locals to stay has definitely affected the quality of...the food and the attitude of the staff. There are too many people which overwhelmed the facility.More

I went here with my family and had a spectacular time. The variety of food served were all deliciois and they even have a room just for cheese and cold cuts. The foie gras is a must try! It was recommended by our very accomodating...server, Rod (Elrod); who was nothing but professional the whole dinner service.More

We’ve frequented Spiral before the pandemic and had pleasant memories of our dining experience there. We decided to book Sofitel’s promo which included both dinner and breakfast as freebies. First thing I noticed was that diners were no longer given free access to the food...and servers were the ones who portioned the food. Second was that the most coveted of the food (like foie gras, high grade cheeses and steak, truffles, etc) were either had to ordered by request or unavailable altogether. Truffles are now for sale. Lastly, we noticed that there was a lack of communication between accomodation and restaurant staff that we were charged for the food of our 4-year old kid who was supposed to be free of charge. Good thing it was eventually sorted out. Overall, the Spiral dining experience still delivers. But some things have definitely changed since the pre-pandemic time. But such is understandable. Will we be back? Ofcourse… but not for a while.More
