The place was all set for a romantic ambience with a piano man and dimmed lighting. The establishment has earned rave reviews including several awards as one of the better restaurants in Manila.

Conti’s Serendra: Home-cooked Tradition

Conti’s Pastry Shop and Restaurant

Serendra, Bonifacio Global City

Since it opened a few years back, Conti’s has become a crowd favorite for diners at BGC.

To be honest this was the first time that I tried authentic Spanish cuisine, we’ve always eaten at fast food restaurants of the Spanish kind but I’m not sure how authentic and faithful there dishes are. Much to my surprise, the place was like a bistro with families and foodies having a great time enjoying the dishes, when I got over my initial hesitation I immediately went to the buffet spread and they did have a lot to offer.
