Fairmont Makati offers a wide range of Filipino dishes at its best, and Spectrum is its most popular restaurant. This venue features modern aesthetics and clean surroundings, giving guests a harmonious dining experience.

They also have an open kitchen where you can watch the chefs work on your meal!
Crowne Plaza Hotel (Pasig)
While most buffet restaurants focus on the variety of their dishes, there are some who’d rather focus on the quality of the food more than its quantity. Seven Corners excels on both! Now’s that’s a restaurant that you could call “A Foodie’s Dream Come True”.
Located at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Pasig, this top-notch restaurant is most notable for its grill station. Just one bite of their world-renowned steak and you’ll be coming back gasping for more!
