Ocean’s Harvest "seafood buffet" at Marriott Hotel Manila every Friday and Saturday nights from 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m for Php 2300

I super love and enjoy the food that Marriott Cafe in Marriott Hotel Manila offers in their daily buffet. I'm a fan of their buffet and I always recommend it to my family and friends, because the service and food are always the best. I just get lucky that I'm invited always to try their new buffet set up every season, and I'm comfortable to go back there again and pay for my own buffet. I keep on coming back because they prepare the food well.

They offer the OCEAN'S HARVEST buffet, its a seafood and fresh catch of the day buffet, every Friday and Saturday from 6PM to 10:30PM, the entire buffet section is transformed into like a Ocean Surf Market Buffet. For only Php 2300, you can enjoy all kinds of seafood and fresh catch of fish, all chefs and staffs are there to help you cook your fresh catch fish and to your preferred recipe. But if you are not sure or clueless on what's the best cooking for the fish, the chefs can assist you to decide and choose the best recipe.

Enjoy the fresh salmon, tuna loin, local tanigue, pompano, talakitok, lapu-lapu, maya-maya, shellfish, jumbo prawns, half shell local scallop, local clams, jumbo squid, suahe shrimps, blue marlin, and local gindara. Just pick your selection and let the chef add more magic flavor. Best cooking is fried and steamed in soy sauce or in sweet and sour sauce.

Also on the other side of the buffet, enjoy the ready to eat seafood - slippers lobster, local blue sea crab, curacha crab, prawns, mussels, and white shells. I always request to the chef to grill my lobsters, but they refused it in the first place because they told me that the lobster get over cooked and hard to chew, I told them its okay, because I like it grilled.
