Imagine Roman holidays with the Italian Valentine set dinner (P899+ per person).  Whet your appetite with a Seafood Minestrone and Pesto Crostini, then follow it up with Homemade Prawn and Spinach Raviolis tossed in a light tomato cream with fresh basil.  For the main course, both you and your partner will relish the Veal Shank Gremolata (slow braised veal shank with tomato, herbs and lemon) on parmesan mash potatoes).  Have a climactic finish with Tiramisu for dessert.

Let Paris be the backdrop of your dinner date with the French Valentine set dinner (P999+ per person).  Start the romance right with Creamy crab bisque with mini shiitake raviolis as appetizers. Then have a hearty helping of Gambas a la Provençale flamed in brandy.  For the main course, both you and your special someone will relish the Grilled Salmon Fillet, orange and Grand Marnier Hollandaise with spinach flan and forêstière potatoes.  Finally, top it with Chocolate crème brulée topped with caramelized apple galette.

Put pizzazz on your date with the American Valentine set dinner (P1,199+ per person) with its generous share of romance and dreamy Hollywood dates.  Stain your lips with the taste of love with Smokey clam chowder with tossed buttered croutons and garlic.  It gets better with Prawn and avocado salad with spicy cocktail dressing and crispy romaine. For the main course, both of you can feast on a mixed grill of tuna-salmon and marlin with 3 salsas (mango, pineapple and tomato).  After a generous share of these heartwarming dishes, leave some room for the sumptuous dessert of your choice of cheesecake – choose from Reese’s, Marble Chocolate and Vanilla and Blueberry.
