Great food and Sydney Harbour views at Ripples Milsons Point

Buffet restaurant option: Misto at Seda Vertis North in Quezon City

Gathering a large group for a meal can be challenging.
People coming from different locations are inevitably held by Metro Manila traffic, and arrive at different times. Everyone has his own food preferences, and some are on diets — no carbs, no meat, high-protein, vegan, vegetarian.  Ordering a la carte and trying to cater to everyone can be difficult.
