Picking Up From My Previous Post…
It was Lunch time at Thunderbird Poro Point, and the choices… Olives Restaurant and…
That’s it. :p
Olives Restaurant is the only restaurant in the main Hotel/resort area in Thunderbird Poro point. There are 2 other cafe’s/restaurant in the casino area (not a walking distance away). Alternatively, you may drive out of the complex and go to the town, the nearest fast-food is Jollibee.. a 5-10 minute drive…
Being the only restaurant in the hotel, I was expecting a great dining experience… But unfortunately I was disappointed on the food and the service..
The place was clean and calm. The color was very earthy and neutral. I personally like the view from the glass windows, a view of the sea and the greenery. The ambiance was great and the restaurant was not that crowded, to think it was lunch time. Probably some folks prefer to order room service.
Now the food.
Our Orders took a while before it was served. A while meaning around 45 minutes!
Free Bread While Waiting.. with Garlic Butter.
Ripe Mango Shake Php 200 +10%sc
Melon Shake Php 160.00 +10%sc
Watermelon Shake Php 160.00 +10%sc
They have a brick oven inside the restaurant for the pizzas.
Four Cheese Pizza Php 720.00 +10%sc
Goat’s Cheese, Parmesan, Feta, and Mozzarella!
I have tasted a lot of all-cheese pizza before, and by far, this is probably the worst I had. Sorry, but it was disappointing. The flavors were not in harmony. And the Price for such disappointment? PHP 720++!
Pizza Ilokano Php 400.00 +10%sc
Tomato, Mozzarella, Cheddar Cheese, Vigan Longganisa, Tocino, Tuna, and Onion!
This really compensated to my previous disappointment! I love this pizza it was very unique and the toppings really go well together. Surprisingly, mixing all these with tuna turned out to be good!
Devilled Chicken Php 420.00 +10%sc
Half Chicken with green olives, chili flakes, tomato, red wine, and celery.
It was not as flavorful as I expected. It was just like eating a regular spicy roasted chicken.
Chicken Piccata Milanese Php 420.00 +10%sc
Pork Medallions Php 480.00 +10%sc
I’m not being bitter because I feel that I got a below average service level from the resort crew but I must really say the the food was really forgettable. Aside from the Ilocano Pizza, everything else was ordinary. Too bad because it was the only restaurant on the hotel. I was really expecting a lot from the restaurant. A great looking and unique hotel like this must be complemented by a great restaurant. One last thing, considering that the resort's theme is Greek/Mediterranean, the food/menu must follow. There was not a lot of Mediterranean dish on the menu.
They should really improve on the quality of the food and service. the looks and uniqueness of the hotel cannot be the only attraction. It must be complemented by great service and awesome food!
