We had a small family reunion held at Alfred’s. Since we, the organizers, come from the US and the time difference was quite issue, the communications were just through calls and emails. The restaurant team headed by Ron, the assistant manager were very willing to work with us. We chose the mini buffet during lunch time. They designed a menu specifically for us and boy was it delicious! The team also situated us in a favorable spot where everyone of us were able to still talk and mingle with each other.
the team was very accommodating, polite and courteous. We are very happy with our experience. Kudos to Alfred team and thank you once again!

Thank Melanie A

Ordered pasta with shrimps and it is quite expensive. I suggest to update menu and add Filipino food choices and make it affordable.

Alfred's best-selling champagne and tapas buffet is back, giving you more reason to celebrate the holidays. Enjoy luxury dining with their bottomless champagne, melted Raclette, Jamon Serrano Monte Nevado, and U.S. Beef Belly. This is available from December 4 to 8, 2017 and December 11 to 15, 2017. 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Alfred, Ground Floor of Makati Diamond Residences. Php 1800 nett per person.

Sharing the experience:

The unlimited Jean Veselle Brut Reserve champagne is the main attraction for the night but you can also order other beverages in their buffet such as cocktails, beer, soda, chilled juices, coffee, tea, and wines. Cheers!

The buffet was not full spread but rather offers curated dishes to give you that luxury experience. Here are the fine dishes that they offer:

Fish Brandade. Brandade is an emulsion of salt cod and olive oil eaten with bread or potatoes.

Parmesan Pudding on Crostini, Arugula, Crema Balsamico. A good starter for the buffet.

Bird's Nest with Chicken and Barbeque Sauce. Fine preparation.

Voul au vent Escargot, Spinach Mousseline. How do you pronounce this, guys? Tastes good.

Spaghetti with Shrimp Scampi. The pasta was cooked al dente. Good amount of olive oil, and succulent shrimp.

Slow Cooked U.S. Beef Belly. With horseradish cream and red wine sauce. Tender and fatty good.

Raclette Station. Just look at that melted goodness. I paired this with their marble potatoes.

Jamon Serrano. The culinary symbol of Spain, a dry-cured Spanish ham, served in very thin slices.

I enjoyed the buffet and the dishes were a perfect match with bubbly. The ambiance of the place has a romantic feel and the staff was also very accommodating. They play piano music of Christmas songs which give you that homey and classy holiday feeling. Definitely a complete package.

By the way, they also serve ice cream (which was so good, I forgot to take a picture). I love the honey flavor.

Cheers, everyone! Happy Holidays!

This was our third time at Alfred - the first two were great - the Friday wine and appetizer buffet and the weekend brunch plus the place has a cozy ambience.

But this time it was dinner on a regular weekday before Christmas. We wanted to start with appetizers and wine - guess what! they had no appetizers - we were offered soup or salad. The only thing they could offer was one of the side dishes of Truffle fries (?!).
We decided to order their Hainanese Chicken and it was a surprise! It looked like rice toppings - the presentation was just awful.
A big rectangular slab of rice (construction worker-sized means it filled the plate) with the slices of chicken breast on top and two leaves of bokchoy on the side of the plate.
So we thought, ok maybe the flavour will save the dish - that too needed rescue
The rice was mushy and flat, two more minutes and it would have been congee
The chicken slices were quite dry

It was quite embarrassing since our guest was a foodie and we were all praises about the place and the food we had previously. Well, we got the brunt of the teasing and will now owe our guest another dinner as this was such a letdown.

Saving grace - the waiters were very courteous
We will go back but maybe only for their special promos.

Availed of the buffet brunch and most of the food are good. The staff are courteous and friendly and the place has very nice interiors. You get the feeling of an open space because of the very high ceiling.
