Buffets are a great dining experience in Cebu and one of my favorites is that of Quest Hotel’s Puso Bistro and Bar.
Quest’s Puso Restaurant has a mid-size buffet spread that costs P700 during lunch and P850 at dinnertime, exclusive of drinks and fees like local tax as well as service charge.
The restaurant has salad, Japanese, Chinese, pasta, carving and dessert stations, and one big area for the main course dishes.
For starters, there are different kinds of salads available and a wide selection of fresh vegetables as well as dressings. I loved the salad bar as as it allowed me to combine olive oil and balsamic vinegar as dip for my tossed greens.
You can order your favorite pasta – from carbonara to pesto to bolognese – and my Aglio Olio was just as I liked it.
The Japanese station has miso soup, tempura, sashimi, and sushi with seafood, vegetables and fruits.
Desserts are a bit limited but time-honored favorites like fruits, ice cream and cakes are present.
Lunch opens at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. while dinner is from 6 to 10 p.m.
Another plus for Puso Restaurant is its spacious dining area with its big tables and chairs. There’s no chance you’ll accidentally hit the person next to you with your elbow. The only thing is it’s hard to maneuver out of those huge chairs to get food.
They overcharged us for the drinks but they changed the bill when we pointed the error to them. Don’t forget to check the bill when it comes.
Puso Bistro and Bar is at the ground floor of Quest Hotel, which is on Archbishop Reyes Avenue just across Ayala Center Cebu.
