We were part of the first batch of hungry customers to attack the buffet, but it wasn't that crowded throughout our stay. It's a long stretch of food and seeing the meat station and hummus got me excited already! I'll highlight the most memorable foods and experiences. Baba Ganoush and Hummus were excellent with a fine...consistency, but I prefer Pita Bread thick and fluffy instead of hard and thin. Baked Whole Salmon and Shrimp Tempura were typically good favorites. U.S. Riverfarm Steamship was a major disappointment; attractive but meat was too tough for everyone at our table regardless of the cooking approach. Iced Tea was house blend style and Infused Water was addicting and refreshing. Crepe had to be redone so extra wait was inevitable. Other than that, service was pretty decent.More

We were greeted nicely seated us and politely asked we can start buffet though a little earlier than set time. I enjoyed the Mediterranean station... went again and again for babaganous, hummus, pitta bread. They let us spoke too with chef when I asked why...there was no roasted beef that day. He explained it is “in turn”. My husband was delighted for birthday cake presented by staff complete with singing group, though only 2 diner. That was surprisingly an extra effort by them that made us conclude it is a well managed cafe inside the hotel.More

The food choices were exceptional. The building design was pleasing to the eye. The tables and chairs were very comfortable. The staff were great. The food itself was great. Unfortunately, this was all nullified most especially for lack of proper ventilation. The tobacco smoke was...overwhelming and nasty. It truly spoiled the whole dinner. To add insult to injury, there were three toilet stalls in the Men's toilet area. one was flooded, another was without a door handle and door was broken, with the toilet itself broken. There was a lineup for the one seemingly functioning toilet so I decided to wait. We won't be going back anytime soon. When we got home to Puerto Galera we immediately went over to Infinity Resort and ordered a great pizza to get the nasty taste from City of Dreams out of our minds.More

Very good quality of food and selection. My personal fave is that the steamed prawns and clams could still be cooked with your choice of sauces. The desert selection is not all that great, but the rest are wonderful. My son who likes steaks thoroughly...enjoyed the carving and steak selection and sidings. Those who love Asian will also be satisfied. Even greater value if you get your buffet price through Metro Deal’s promo rate! I will definitely come back for another milestone celebration!More

Wide variety of food choices for their buffet which I really like. They have the freshest seafood and would really love if they will have oysters and lobsters in addition. The staffs are all pleasant and accommodating. Will definitely come keep coming back.
