Description: Making a splash when it first opened in 2006, Spiral’s dining innovations were a first in Asia and it became one of Manila’s most loved restaurants. Dining has never been the same again since. But the new Spiral proves that even a trailblazer can top itself with Sofitel once again taking destination dining to a whole new level.The new Spiral is divided into 21 dining ateliers. In France, an atelier is an artist’s special workshop, and in Spiral it is where secret recipes are masterfully prepared right before your very eyes. The range of cuisines is expansive and the attention and detail to each dish has the focus of an artisan.

Best food taste and quality. Ambiance is good. But this is not a budget friendly restaurant. You must try it for special occasion.

As always, the best buffet in the Metro. This is our go to when we have balikbayans and it never dissapoints to satisfy even the most meticulous of palates.

We finally tried the most talked about buffet of Spiral last Nov. 2. They had this special promo on buffet discount which was extremely a good deal. The selection,variety and quality of food were really top notch. The cheese room is really a must try for everyone - whether you're a cheese lover or not - if only to educate your palette on the more sophisticated flavors of cheese. I have a constructive feedback though in the service we experienced that night: 1) We were seated in a table good for 4 but we were only 2 that night. No server bothered to remove the excess utensils, glasses and table napkin, therefore leaving our table cluttered. We even had to call somebody to remove the excess glasses with water 2x but he did not remove the utensils or even asked how many are we dining that night. 2) The servers are attentive in refilling our glasses with water. This is appreciated. However, care should be taken in ensuring that water don't splash in the table. 3) Processing our bill was painfully slow. I asked for the bill before going to the rest room. When I returned, we must have waited for about 10 mins more and had to call a waiter to inform him about the long wait and to follow up the bill. To be fair, the lady who gave our bill apologized and said that the computer hanged. These are not serious guest concerns but it did make our first dining experience in Spiral a little less pleasant. Having said this, we would still come back in Spiral and hopefully, it will be a much better guest experience next time. We dined in the restaurant between 7-9pm and were seated near the bar overlooking the bay area.
