This buffet use to be decent, long time ago, but i guess management doesn't care much about the food since they can make it back on the rooms. For the price of 1000 a person, regular price if you don't have a marco polo card that gives you %50 off. If not even worth it at 500. The selection is... More

The place is not as it used to. Food choices are limited and unimpressive. I hope they'd improve the quality of the food.

Is my 3rd morning here (ard 9am). I feel here is really messy everytime I come in. 1st, we never get a cleaned table with full settings whenever we were arranged to be seated. I notice they won't clean up until customers get in. Customers need to stand next to the table to wait for their cleanup everyday. U can... More

OMG, we had our New Year's Eve dinner here and it was really good. Excellent food, the ambiance was great. We had a blast. My eyes are bigger than my stomach.

We had a quick breakfast at Cafe Marco Polo on February 14 as we have an early flight back to Manila.There are many food selections for the buffet breakfast and we just tasted what we liked most since we have to go to the airport for our flight. Cafe Marco is a very excellent place - delicious foods, nice staff,... More

Went here a few months ago with a couple of my colleagues. They have a wide array of foods to choose from, some are not even breakfast items(I'm not complaining). Everything tastes good but they're too expensive(P800+), good thing our company paid for it.

I love their food except the ones in the dessert section, their cakes are very dry and the other desserts are not good. Dined here for 5 times already but their desserts really frustrates me every time.

I thoroughly enjoyed eating here. The staff were very accommodating and the food was excellent. I was pleasantly surprised also that there are items that aren't too expensive. My only complaint is that it isn't open in the afternoon, because it would have been a nice place to work or have afternoon tea.
