Champagne Room, Manila Hotel

A feel of Versailles in Manila

IMG_8527

If you are familiar with the movie Marie Antoinette played by Kirsten Dunst, you know exactly what I meant by Versailles. It is one of the chick flicks movies that I absolutely love. This film is sophisticated and flamboyant, successfully showing its audience the  lifestyle a royalty had during the 1700’s.

Ryan and I tied the knot last November 24, 2012. Since he is working overseas, we failed to celebrate our first and second year wedding anniversaries together. Luckily we had the chance to be with each other this year, so I thought that making our celebration extra special is a pretty good idea. Having that in mind, we decided to hold our celebration in a fine dining restaurant. We searched for the best resto’s in Manila, until we found the Champagne Rooma five star restaurant located inside Manila Hotel. Its dainty, classic, elegant,  its perfect! 

Ambiance

We did our reservation a week before our anniversary (527-00-11). The restaurant is open everyday from 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm and require the diners to wear a formal attire. We arrived at the place at around 8:15 pm and upon entry we were promptly greeted and assisted to our table. I was mesmerized by the ambiance that welcomed us.

The furnishings really conforms with the theme of the place. From the carpeted floor, ceilings with crystal decorations to dainty chairs and all. The classical music being played by the pianist capped up the elegance of the restaurant. The staff and waiters were very accommodating and quickly assisted us with our needs. We indeed felt like royalties for the night, instantly I  turned into a fine lady haha! (wink!). 

Food 

A celebration is not complete without wine. To start of, we ordered a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.

 Red Wine P1,339.29

After about five minutes, complimentary snacks were served.

Rack of Lamb P1,100.00

For dessert, we ordered something with extra drama on it. Baked Alaska flamed in our table. (This is off the menu but you can ask the waiter if it is available).

Baked Alaska P450.00

And oh! We were given another dessert, on the house.

Chocolate Truffles and a Candy Flower

Cost 

All in all, we paid a total of P5,056.61, inclusive of taxes and charges.

Food Tax :     P27.50                  Beverage Tax : P40.18                                 10% Charge : P408.93              12% Charge : P490.71

I think the price of this whole dining experience is quite reasonable as compared to other fine dining restaurants in the metro. Plus, where will you find a very beautiful and unique place like this in Manila?

Overall Impression 

In a nutshell, we do not like this restaurant because we LOVE it! We really had so much FUN celebrating our anniversary. This place is awesome and really lived with our expectations.

Love Love Love
