Hotel Elizabeth offers two dining options to its guests. One of which — the meat heaven between the two — is Flora Cafe. Flora Cafe is best known for its sumptuous breakfast and lunch buffets as well as its Mongolian Dinner Buffet and Saturday Dinner buffets which combines Japanese and US Black Angus, among others.

For dinner, we had a three meal course. The vegetable soup warmed us up with its buttery taste. The main course was the Rosemary Chicken with Fish Fillet and Marinara Sauce. I thought the Fish Fillet stole the show with its tender meat and really flavourful sauce. The vegetable sidings were crunchy.
To cap off the meal, we were served a plate of pastries and fruit. The pastry was nice and sweet and the fruits really fresh as expected from a resto in the City of Pines.

… We tried their Fried ice cream during our visit and I really liked it.
The view as you look outside its glass windows would definitely increase your appetite.

They have a pretty good spread with rice and several viands, bread, pancakes, soup, salad, fresh fruits and cereal. They also offer juice and coffee with your meal.

Cheers to good food, good hotel food! Though everything was above par, I personally loved the (unforgettable) fantastic, melt-in-your-mouth Black Angus ribeye steak from the Cotterman on the first night …

… We love the careful selection of dishes on their spreads (we tried their breakfast and dinner buffets). Each dish we sampled was really good — something not all buffet-offering restaurants in Baguio can rightfully claim.

According to many Baguio visitors, O’ Mai Khan has become one of their all-time favorite eat all you can Baguio restaurant. O’ Mai Khan offers Mongolian barbecue buffet and hotpot where guests get to choose their own ingredients for their very own Mongolian meal. O’ Mai Khan is surely one of Baguio’s best.

If you are a big eater and sucker for Asian cuisine and knows something on mixing and matching of flavors, I highly suggest that you try this place. With its price, location and ambiance, trying O’ Mai Khan of Baguio City is now a must-do in this lovely city that I’ll recommend to you.
Full review at: http://lafanggero.blogspot.com/
It is very homey inside. The windows are open and you can feel the cool breeze of the mountains.
They are known for their Mongolian buffet, and that is what we came in for, although, we also ordered some hot pot for our soup. It’s perfect for the cool weather of Baguio. (Starts at P170 for one)
We also got some strawberry shake. Hmm, I expected it to be delicious, but it wasn’t THAT good. It tasted like there was a mix of soda in it. Maybe the strawberries weren’t that fresh.
… The vegetables looked very fresh, just what you would expect from Baguio.
Full review at: http://fortyweeksandthensome.blogspot.com/
The Mongolian bowl didn’t turn out the way I want it, not spicy at all. Maybe the manang in charge got confused and mixed it up due to the volume of people around and the veggies are too soggy. I hope I’ll have a better experience next time and I need to do my own sauce concoction to meet the taste I desired. The soup is right on, just enough to ease my still full tummy.
For desserts, I have to recommend this duo. I love how the calamansi pie tasted, it got the exact blend of sweetness and tanginess and I can’t get enough of the milk strawberry shake.

The steak was so unforgettable that we just had to order it again!!!
EVERYTHING was soooo delicious!!! This is the perfect date place in Baguio! Service was flawless! The place is even more beautiful at night… 🙂 I love the ambiance and interior of this restaurant so much! The highlight of this Baguio trip.

Service was great from reception to the end. We received warm greetings from the staffs and the manager upon arrival, and they presented only friendly and attentive stewardship.
Warming us up for dinner was this basket of bread with Le Chef’s specialty dip. Boring, right? Wrong. These breads were perfectly soft and light, and the dip was flavorful. This complimentary starter kicked off the meal just right, while we were waiting for the actual courses to be served.

When dining at Le Chef Restaurant at the Manor, it could really be a difficult task to choose what to eat – there simply are too many mouthwatering gourmet dishes offered on the menu to settle for just one. But if you are really looking forward to eating something not readily available in other restaurants, you could always pick their lamb dishes: there’s Lamb Shank Pinot Noir and Marinated Lamb Cutlet.
More on: http://www.travelingmorion.com/
The rating? 3 out of 5 stars. The salmon would’ve been good had it not been overcooked. Maybe because it stayed on the chafing dish for quite some time? As for the other dishes, notables would be the Lamb Leg and the Caesar Salad. Hubby did the mixing and serving of the Caesar Salad that’s why it’s in my notable list. Kidding! Truth is, the vegetables were crisp and the dressing was not too overwhelming. That’s why I liked it. …

Despite being fairly new in the scene, Buffet Republic has already touched and earned the hearts of many Baguio City goers. To start off, Buffet Republic offers a wide variety of dishes at very budget-friendly prices topped with a super cozy ambiance. Truly, Buffet Republic is off to a great start!

For the promo price, the quality of food was satisfying albeit a little inadequacy of choices. The food presentation was inviting. The fruit salad tasted good, it wasn’t very sweet as some commercial ones are. Here, watermelon and papaya were fruit choices. I loved the taste of their cucumber salad. What was also good which I noticed was on the coffeemaker side were choices of different sachets of sugar. They had white, brown and the artificial sugar used by diabetics. I don’t have any complaints about the staff, they refilled the trays the soonest they see that a particular food is running out. The place however, was too wide. The ceiling was too high, it doesn’t make you feel cozy. The chairs are like the ones you see at a fastfood. They didn’t have backrest, just stools. If only they would improve on the interior to make it more a little classy, then I would be really appeased.

- Overall, a good enough selection.
- Of which, I loved the bangus belly … dipped in vinegar. I don’t know what their mix was but Y-U-M! (“,)
- Race liked the lumpia and the omelette from the egg station most but he did get enough from the other chafing dishes, too.
- It was so amusing to see shantong soup, which I think is a pretty elaborate soup, in the buffet.
- Race loved the caffeine kick the overflowing coffee provided him.
- Well picked fruits.
- Few selections of viands for lunch. It seemed like the buffet restaurant couldn’t strike a balance with providing enough choices and it being okay for us to pay P180.
- Bicol express – Where are you spice? Where are you creamy coconut milk taste?
- The flavorsome beverages we had at breakfast started lose taste as the day progressed … watered down iced tea, overbrewed coffee.

6. Kamayan sa Baguio

If you’re looking for something a little bit different for your eat all you can Baguio experience, then you might want to check out Kamayan sa Baguio. It is a buffet restaurant famous not only for its delicious food but moreso for its warm ambiance that simulates that of a real house, making its customers feel much at home.
Photo source: http://whatcarolwants.blogspot.com/
… They serve Filipino food and as what you can see they say it’s home of lechon cebu, but when we came there, there was no lechon. We were disappointed because it was a weekend when we came there so were expecting that there’s lechon. … Well anyways the ambiance is good. There’s also singers who will entertain you while eating.
Full review at: http://myrenecabria.blogspot.com/
My first impression? The tables took too much space so it looked crowded. I do not know if it’s just the opening season and they need to provide more chairs for more people. At around 12:15 pm, you had to go through a maze already just to get to the buffet table. They should take out at least 5 tables from the main dining area to give way for the people lining up at the buffet.
Full review at: http://baguiobond.blogspot.com/
Around nine dishes were served. It was really disappointing because they were too ordinary every-day meal. The dishes looked like it has been reheated over and over. I couldn’t even remember what dish I liked the most because they seemed to taste all the same. My daughter enjoyed her small crabs though, and she used her bare hand to eat. There prices were P279 buffet per head, P299 buffet with a glass of iced tea and P320 buffet with bottomless iced tea. We got the one with bottomless which we regretted because we never asked for some refill due to the fact that their iced tea was too sweet. Their logo states, “Home of Lechon Cebu”, but it was not included in their buffet choices. 🙁

It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets with dishes ranging from Pinoy favorites to Asian and international cuisines.

The place is nice and the ambiance is relaxing. Thanks in part to the renovation and the design which makes it like your dining in a classy restaurant. They have a wide array of food selections which makes it a haven for food lovers like us. … The choices are great though mostly Japanese foods. Loved the Sushi and Sashimi. Don’t worry about chafing dishes running out of food because every now and then the restos wait staffs checks them and refills them immediately.
Place can be crowded especially during breakfast and lunch. Well, this is quite obvious due to the restos small dining area. Some of the foods are a little bit spicy which can’t be good especially to children and older people. Japanese dinner buffet I think is a bit expensive considering the fact that you really are not gonna consume all that food that is served there. Maybe, just maybe, you can consider lowering the price down just a little.
