Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love in all forms—whether it’s romantic, familial, platonic, or self-love—and what better way than to go all out with a dinner under the Metro Manila skyline? These hotels are offering you the best views of the city. Bring your partner, your parents, your BFF, or even just yourself!
Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria
Crowne Plaza Galleria offers a four-course dinner al fresco at the hotel’s courtyard complete with live entertainment.
Enjoy Goats Cheese and Winter Salad, followed by either the Aromatic Seafood Veloute or the Spiced & Roasted Butternut Squash Bisque. For your main course, you can try Surf &Turf, which is “a dish consisting of U.S. prime beef tenderloin and crispy braised shin with shiitake and butter-poached king prawn with butternut squash puree, spinach, oyster mushrooms, roasted onion braised cabbage and red wine jus.” You can also opt for the Trio of Chicken or the Duo of Salmon. Dessert is a chocolatey surprise!
Dinner is from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the 5th floor courtyard of the Crown Plaza, and is at P3,000++ per head.

Marco Polo is also offering an evening with a view of the metropolis! Pick any date from February 12 to 15 to enjoy the exclusive Sky Diners of the Continental Club Lounge on the 44th level of the hotel. Go for a special five-course menu inspired by global flavors and interpreted by Marco Polo’s senior culinary team.
If you’re up for something more relaxed, visit Cucina on the 24th level for a special a la carte dinner menu on February 13 and 14, but you can still opt to enjoy the buffet for P2,988 per head.
Before heading out, make sure to drop by Café Pronto on the ground floor and get yourself a basket of Love Bites, which is a sweet selection of chocolate lollipops, chocolate pots, Strawberry Tart, and Berry Lamingtons. If tiny treats are too bitin, go for their Dark and White Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Almond Nuts, priced at P1,500.

“Start the evening with mini pomme d'amour with foie gras, smoked duck magret with fig chutney, goat cheese and honey mousse with dill and cucumber jelly for amuse bouche.

"Transition to the main course with your choice of pan-seared and whisky flambéed sea scallops, creamy asparagus and guanciale risotto with shallot purée and parmesan cappuccino; or beef tenderloin with béarnaise sauce, mornay stuffed macaroni gratin and parsnip purée. Finish off the sweet evening with crémeux caramel with fleur de sel and hazelnut sablé, and white chocolate ice cream.”
Le Bar’s Valetine spread is available on February 14, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. for P3,000 nett per person.
