Champagne Room


.
Back in September, the Boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary in one of the restaurants we've wanted to try for the longest time: Champagne Room. This restaurant is located in Manila Hotel, the grand dame of hotels in Manila.
.
Manila Hotel has recently undergone some renovations and refurbishments, especially with its restaurants.  Since Champagne Room has been on our restaurant list, our anniversary  was the perfect occasion to find out for ourselves what makes Champagne Room special.

.
The interiors of Champagne Room are luxurious, without being ostentatious.  With its French/ Old European style, right off the bat, you get the feel of the restaurant.
.
.
Despite the luxe interiors, it wasn't intimidating but somewhat even cozy. I love the pale printed seats and cushions--quite feminine without being too girly. We were given a corner table with a good view of the rest of the restaurant.  Servers were dressed up in coattails, adding to the restaurant's ambiance.
.
.
For starters, A. had a smoked salmon roll and french onion soup while I ordered a cream of scallop soup and baked chilean mussels.
.
.
.
 In between the appetizers and the entrees, we were given sorbet as palate cleanser.
 .

For my entree, I got the prime rib while A. had lobster termidor.
.
.
Our meal ended with banana flambe, served table side by our waiters.
.
.
And they also served as complimentary petit fours, all the better to end our evening on a sweet note.
.

The food in Champagne Room was delicious and well-"executed".  It was that and the fact that the whole ambiance of the restaurant was classic, luxurious, and romantic that made us love Champagne Room. Cheers!

  1. Wow! I love staying and dining at the Manila Hotel. It may look old and a little outdated to some but for me, it's what adds to the charm. New hotels are a dime a dozen in the Metro and it's hard to differentiate one from the rest based on looks so Manila Hotel's just the type to introduce Manila to tourists. =)

  4. My husband loves the food outlets of Manila Hotel, as well. It does help that they offer discounts frequently, because our numbers almost qualify for a troop. :)
