Spiral Restaurant of Sofitel: Best Buffet Restaurant in the Metro

It has been more than a decade since I last stepped in the Sofitel hotel. It has been several years since I last was here. In fact, the structure wasn’t even named Sofitel back then.


Fast forward to more than 10 years. The structure which has housed royalty, celebrities, and heads of states was named Sofitel hotel. Several improvements have been made in the iconic hotel. The minimalist interiors with traditional touches of local decorations using capiz shells and coconut make the elegant detail of this 5-star hotel a sight to behold.


One major reason guests choose this 5-star hotel over its counterparts is because of the infamous Spiral restaurant.


Spiral is a restaurant like no other, taking interactive dining to a level never before seen in the Asia Pacific region.
The new Spiral is divided into 21 dining ateliers. In France, an atelier is an artist’s special workshop, and in Spiral it is where secret recipes are masterfully prepared right before your very eyes. The range of cuisines is expansive and the attention and detail to each dish has the focus of an artisan.


Spiral has been dubbed as the best buffet restaurant in Metro Manila by several restaurant-award-giving bodies. Hence, with extreme excitement, pleasure, happiness, and giddiness, I prepare for my first Spiral experience.
