Each table had 1 pitcher of ice tea which is an added cost for those planning to have customized buffet. Some customers opt to add a little more in order to add some more dishes.

The restaurant also had several private room, Dos Palmas is located at the second floor and can accommodate between 60 to 70 persons.

There were a lot of factors in rating this restaurant. Price wise, it is not bad for Php 289.00. They must try to improve on some of their dishes and desserts. Some are quite redundant.

Overall, I would give our lunch buffet experience a 7.30 out of 10 rating. The service crew is quite friendly and even gave a survey form after we finished eating. The survey form that we filled-up hopefully would be use by the management to improve their dishes and even service.

Buffet Rate: Php 289 Adult, Php 206.46 Senior Citizen with valid Id’s, Php 205 children height between 3 to 4 feet, Php 112 children height between 2 to 3 feet.
