TL;DR: Market Cafe's a top notch buffet that stands out among other buffets in Manila for it's food quality and staff, and would almost never disappoint you every time you would decide to enjoy your meal in, what I can say, one of Manila's Finest restaurants. Atmosphere: The overall atmosphere of the restaurant brings about a feel of elegance in... More

..but I didn't get what should I pay 2000P for. In the end we left without eating there, because it didn't look as promising as in the pictures. Very few choices, it was empty maybe because it was Tuesday.. not sure, but we did hope for smth more. The only great part I saw is that you pick what kind... More

Located at the 3rd Floor of the New World Hotel Manila Bay, Market Cafe is an elegantly decorated buffet restaurant worth trying by food connoisseurs. Most prominent immediate impression is its cozy atmosphere, and with only a few customers, hence it is not as crowded as other buffet restaurants in its category. The food choices are reasonable, but not as... More

We had our Chinese New Year celebration here hoping for an improved quality of menu. As former frequent guest in this restaurant years ago , we have not seen it redeeming it's old glory. To name that Manila Hotel Ilang Ilang cafe was now even better in terms of meat quality and seafood selection for its buffet price. They used... More

Good Food, a wide variety of food. Bounty of Seafood. Went there for a dinner with family. We enjoyed the food, and the place. We were seated on a round table near the window, best place when you have a toddler. The staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet comes with one round of drink - soda, juice.

For any American missing the comforts of home eat the breakfast, or any meal, buffet here. It's outstanding, and you won't go away hungry. Plus the service is good and everything, including the bathroom, is clean.

This restaurant has got to be my all-around favorite buffet place to eat in the heart of Manila. It's location is very convenient, being situated in the middle of everything - cultural areas, tourist places, the mall, Divisoria, airport. Food selection is of meticulous variety so you will never run out of choices when you are dining here. Seafood is... More

I would like to thank the Market Cafe service staff and chefs, who wake up at ungodly hours everyday to provide some of the finest food and definitely the most charming service you will ever experience. They take the effort to recognise you by name and that really makes the difference between a simple meal and an enjoyable dining experience!... More
