MARRIOTT CAFE Sunday Brunch Buffet Crossover with CRU STEAKHOUSE!

Marriott Cafe's Sunday Brunch-55.jpg
I was pleasantly surprised that Marriot Cafe offered a Sunday Brunch Buffet with a cross-over to Cru – one of the best Steakhouses in Manila.

It only costs P2,000 per head which is easily the cost of ordering one steak at Cru. You don’t only get unlimited steaks and foie gras, you’ll also get a wide array of other Meat and Fresh Seafood options, and different Asian Cuisines plus end your meal with the Chocolate Dessert Room. 

Here are tips on how to conquer the MARRIOTT CAFE Sunday Brunch Buffet:

The Sunday Breakfast Buffet is usually fully booked so better reserve the corner tables to have a little bit of privacy.

You can reserve one of the two Private Dining Rooms for P15,000 consumable for maximum of 10 persons.

Another tip would be to reserve and eat in Cru instead of the Marriot Cafe area which has a better fine dining ambiance.

CRU Steakhouse Crossover

As you cross over to Cru, you can have unlimited order of cocktails available that day prepared for you on the spot 🙂

You can order rib eye steaks and other seafood options, and

unlimited foie gras!

This was the best part of the buffet for us 🙂

(Tip: Our steaks were cooked really well at the start of buffet and the quality degrades as more and more people go the the Cru section. Best to start early when the buffet opens at 11.30am)

Chocolate Room

To end the meal, they converted one of the private dining rooms into a chocolate room with different chocolate- themed desserts.

Love the chocolate crunch…

the chocolate fondue options.

Marshmallow and chocolate are always a hit with the boys 🙂

After the chocolate, we end our meal with their home- made ice cream flavors 🙂

Overall, we love the Cru Steakhouse buffet, the fresh seafood option, the live cooking stations and the Chocolate Room desserts 🙂 It was really good value and one of the best buffet options in Manila in 2012 🙂

  1. How about Impressions’ buffet? Is it any good? I think they also have foie gras and caviar! And a wider selection of cheese.

  2. Hi, how are you? Thanks for posting the article. You make me hungry with these foods. If you convert this in dollars, PHP 2000/40 = $50.00 per person. Halos pareho lang iyong price ng buffet here in San Francisco Bay Area. Of course, 5 Star Hotel iyan pero sulit naman dahil imported iyong mga cheese at ham.
