Celebrated my birthday with a belly dance party on Jan. 12, 2019. My guests and I had a most memorable experience, it was a night to remember! Ms. Gli, the sales rep, was very professional from the get go when we made reservations and finalized the deal two months before the event. She was most accommodating and answered all my inquiries with the utmost efficiency. She was there to oversee the event and I'm happy with how she decorated the place according to my color motif with swags, balloons, lights, and all. She also made sure all my concerns were addressed and carried out accordingly. She generously offered the boarding room as a holding room for our group of belly dancers at no extra cost and reserved parking for me and my family. The food was delicious. I made some changes and requests based on our food tasting and I'm satisfied with how the chef carried out my requests, as relayed by Ms. Gli. My menu was Pumpkin Soup (served steaming hot to warm the soul,) Carbonara ( the pasta was al dente and tasted good), Herbed Roast Chicken (moist not dry), Island Porkloin in Mango Sauce (surprisingly flavorful considering it was substitution and I didn't have the chance to try it beforehand) and silky Mango Panna Cotta that tasted wonderful! The service staff was also very attentive to our needs. I like that although the rest of the hotel is dated, Bistro 1166 was newly renovated and relaunched sometime last year. It was the right size for our intimate and cozy group of 30 with ample space for dancing. The sound system was very good, the guests enjoyed singing; in fact I was a little worried when our cut-off time was approaching and the guests were still lining up songs in the karaoke. All in all, we had a great time at an incredibly good price- talk about value for money! Thank you, Ms. Gli Chel Dolorfino, Chef, kitchen and service staff for making my birthday celebration even more special! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good deal but also doesn't want to get the short end of the stick.Keep up the good work! :) less
