This is his first weekend back in Manila and we want to make it special. It was a friend's Facebook post that convinced us to try Barbara's in Intramuros. I have heard about their dinner buffet that comes with cultural show, but its only this Saturday that we found time to actually visit.
I called the number posted on the web (+632 527 3893) to make reservation and found out that dinner service starts at 6:00PM and show starts at 7:15PM.
In spite of the traffic in Manila, we were able to arrive at Plaza San Luis Complex just before 7:00PM. The buffet selection was a mix of Filipino and International dishes. Don't expect a spread as huge as Vikings. This is not the place to get get stuffed. They offer 2 meat dishes, a fish option, vegetable, pasta, rice and soup, plus a separate station for dessert. I think its a good deal for 699 pesos and lunch buffet is even cheaper at 549 pesos. The crowd was a mix of locals, Balik-bayans, and tourists.

The Cultural show started as scheduled with the 3-man Rondalla, followed by a series of dances. First, they highlighted the Spanish inspired dances, followed by the Muslim and was capped by the Fiesta theme.

I really enjoyed the evening. I like the Nostalgic Charm of the restaurant, the food, and Cultural show makes it worth the visit. Plus, its a real value for money.
