Friday Seafood Night Buffet is the best offer in town...overflowing scallops...grilled sea bass, crabs, and lobsters! Their Roast Beef and grilled lamb are superb! To cap it it great variety of desserts and coffee!

On a recent trip to Manila we visited the Manila Hotel and had dinner at Cafe IIiang-Ilang, which is inside the hotel. After walking through the impressive and old school lobby we made our way to the restaurant. We were greeted by hostesses in traditional...More
