Hotel Celeste Lunch Buffet

In one of our monthly get together my friend invited me to have lunch at Hotel Celeste located at the center of Makati at the intersection of Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road) and San Lorenzo Drive (just outside the gate of San Lorenzo Village). I've heard about the hotel before that they have nicely designed rooms inside and have different themes for design. We didn't check out the rooms so I couldn't say anything more about it.

I knew the hotel was a bit small so I wasn't expecting anything grand of a buffet like Shangri-La, Sofitel and the like. Judging from the price though I was expecting a little more selection but I guess we were paying for the ambiance as well.

I didn't find anything special about the food. I didn't like much the Angus beef they served but maybe it's just me. I'm no expert in meats. I did like however the Buffalo Chicken (which tastes kinda similar like Korean chicken) and the potato slices (very yummy bacon taste). The desserts were so-so. I guess all in all I would say a person who likes to eat a lot would find the buffet worthwhile since it's eat-all-you-can plus the ambiance but for those who are used to great selection of food they should opt for other buffet venues.
