Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff not so hospitable and not even aware of our inquiry of the “interactive kitchen and an exciting cooking show” written description of the Market Cafe. Waiter needed to call a female staff, who subsequently called another more senior staff. We felt offended by the...way they answered our queries. We were trying to call beforehand but no one was answering the number posted. Maybe the this page needs to be updated because according to the staff, maybe this was “pre-fandemic”More

The buffet was a great value for the money. If you stay at the hotel you will only pay 1575 php instead of 2100 php. They have seafood on Fridays which was really good. Everything was fresh and you can have it cooked in different...ways by asking one of the staff to prepare it your desired way. Right now the buffet is only open Friday and Saturday for dinner and everyday for breakfast.More

I stayed at the New Coast Hotel and dined at the restaurant frequently. The breakfast buffet has a huge variety of options to choose from and the service from staff is excellent. Stayed here during Chinese New Year and the dinner buffet was very impressive...and something quite special!More

It is the only restaurant of the top rated New Coast Hotel . Lili and Fireplace are still closed. Serving buffet choices for dinner and breakfast. Ambiance was great. Airy feels. Tables were well spaced. Good lighting. Comfortable temperature. Food was delicious. Some though can...be a hit or a miss. Loved it that they include drinks , aside from the usual coffee and tea. Japanese corner and the carving station are worth noting. Dessert selection was extensive. They also have an existing card promo. Don’t miss this one out.More

Had high expectations for the Sunday lunch buffet since it was regularly priced at PHP 2,900, although thankfully we paid only half price with my BDO card. Okay: cold cuts & cheese platter, tender prime rib (although the beef was not that flavorful), beef with...mushroom, salmon sashimi, halo-halo, ice cream Disappointing: crabs & oysters did not taste fresh, the beef teppanyaki was rather tough & had a strong bell pepper taste, tempura dipping sauce tasted bland even with the grated ginger Service was good, fruit juice, softdrinks & coffee were included in the buffet price, but food quality not as good as the other hotel buffets.More

Market Café has a lot of selections to choose from. Food is fresh and the chefs are more than glad to whip up your food request. Special mention to Chefs Anche and Jerzon. Great job, chefs! But more than the taste, one would definitely keep...coming back because of the excellent service. Jeff, Xander, Jhon, Levie, Paulo, Mich and Ally and the rest of the Market Café team, keep it up! Good food is a plus but your customer service tips the scale! Kudos!More

Again and again I always ended up on this place, with friends and family, on special occasions and sometimes no occasion at all. I like the food selection even admittedly less compared to some super buffets. All food served is top notch in quality and...the wonderful staff has become family, because you can feel the warmth and sincerity. Over all this place is like a second home to me and I would always come back.More

It's been a while since we last ate here. My hubby reserved a table 'coz it's Mother's Day. Had a good Sunday lunch! Everything's fresh. You can ask the chefs to cook whatever you like from their seafood station. Those who love Italian will be...a little disappointed because they don't serve pizza only pasta. Now, if you like kare-kare, that's like oxtail stew, only this one is cooked with peanut butter. You'll love this! The oxtail is falling off the bone and the bagoong (shrimp paste), that goes with it, is very tasty. Yummy! 😋 There are a lot of roasted meat. They even have a lechon, that's roasted pig, stuffed with paella. Muy deliciosa! Service is great! Kudos, specially to Rael, wasn't able to get his last name. He always serves with a smile. And to think he has only slept for two hours. Thank you Rael! 👍❤️More
