Sky Deck View Bar: Rooftop Dinner with Manila City View at The Bayleaf Hotel (Intramuros Manila)

Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

One random night, uncle invited us for dinner to one of his latest discoveries: Sky Deck View Bar at The Bayleaf Hotel.  He said he was invited over there for a business meeting and since the view is worth-sharing, he thought of treating us there.

Even though we are Manila residents, we just found out about The Bayleaf HotelSince Intramuros is small, we didn't have a hard time finding it.  Parking slots are limited so we had to park outside The Bayleaf Hotel compound.

Going up the flight of stairs, we already got a glimpse of the view.

Uncle was right!  The ambiance is indeed stunning.

The service is slow and it was difficult to call the attention of the servers but we didn't mind.  We kept ourselves occupied with the view.

I dont think there's any place in Manila that can offer a beautiful sight of the city.


quesong puti fondue
Quesong Puti Fondue (365 php)
For starters, we had the Quesong Puti Fondue.  We loved the local white cheese sprinkled with salted fish flakesIt is a great dip for the crunchy garlic bread.

Fresh Salad
shrimp and pomelo salad
Shrimp and Pomelo (390 php)
The Shrimp and Pomelo is an asian inspired salad with greens, Davao pomelo and green mangoIt had a fish sauce-based dressing.

Main Course
beef tenderloin fillet
Beef Tenderloin Fillet (750 php)
The Beef Tenderloin Fillet is so tender.  This is definitely worth it!

seabass nori
Seabass Nori (400 php)
The Seabass Nori is another hit among us.

Heritage (comes with rice)
Bayleaf Bagnet Classic (400 php)
My family is originally from Ilocos so our standard for bagnet and pinakbet is quite high.  And, the Bayleaf Bagnet Classic passed with flying colors.

kare kare
Classic Beef Kare Kare (470 php)
The Classic Beef Kare Kare is so tasty.  This will make you want to have more rice!

Beef Tenderloin "Bistek" (490 php)
The Beef Tenderloin "Bistek" is also good.

Seafood (450 php)

The Seafood is good but it was robbed of the spotlight by the other dishes.

"Our" Crepe Suzette (270 php)
Nothing special with the "Our" Crepe Suzette.

ensaymada pudding
Ensaymada Pudding (240 php)

Indeed, the Ensaymada Pudding is a must try!

The Chocolate Wall (300 php)

The Chocolate Wall is so beautifully plated.  The chocolate mousse is rich.  I found the caramel to be superfluous as it is already sweet enough.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
The Manila City view makes the dining experience at Sky Deck View Bar totally worth it!  The price is reasonable for such a unique rooftop experience.  The food is pretty good too.  Overall, I highly recommend this place.  It made me appreciate Manila more.
