Solaire Fresh Buffet – Most Sulit Buffet Right Now!

Solaire Fresh Back

Solaire has been open for a while, and even though we’ve visited Solaire at least once every other month, we’ve never actually dined at their buffet.

Solaire’s buffet restaurant is called Fresh, and it is located in one of the corners of the casino floor. The reason we haven’t tried it before was the high price. It used to be more than P3,000+ per person, if I recall, and since we did not hear any buzz about it, I had just assumed that it was just another run of the mill buffet. Haha, am I the only one who thinks of cologne or perfume whenever I hear the restaurant’s name, Fresh?

Another factor why we haven’t tried Fresh was because we got frightened off eating at Solaire when it first opened – they priced everything so high, people literally got sticker shock. We ate a tiny plate of Beef Hofan and it cost P700+! A meal at their other restaurants needed a budget of over P2,000 per person or higher and I doubt I would be full (baka gutom pa ako). Over time, they relaxed a bit and adjusted their prices to somewhere more acceptable to patrons, but even though the food was always very good, we just never tried eating at Solaire again unless it was at the Solaire food court (P300-700 price range per dish) or during parties held there.

A few days ago, a friend of mine invited me to try Fresh. I had never really explored it inside – it’s actually very nice! There’s even a waterfall at the back. The restaurant has a very nature-inspired, relaxing ambience, with lots of plants and flower arrangements. Solaire has always been the best-looking casino for me, and is the best-maintained. I should not have expected any less of its buffet restaurant.

Notice the flowers! I love the greenery at Solaire, it makes the place so relaxing and resort-like, but it’s air-conditioned, my must-have for this summer!

SOLAIRE FRESH BUFFET – BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK BUFFET RIGHT NOW!

Unli-LOBSTER!

When I scanned the buffet offerings, I noticed that they had lobster! YUP, LOBSTER! You can get as much as you want, and you can have it cooked the way you want, too! OMG, that’s like UNLI-LOBSTER!

Unli-WINE!

I also noticed that that they had a wine station. When I asked, they said that it was included in the buffet!

ONLY P2,287.50 NET!

I asked how much the buffet was, and I am not joking, the buffet price is ONLY P2,287.50 net per person! I was like, are you kidding?! Seriously? Unli-lobster and  unli-wine, plus all the other good stuff, and it’s all less than P2,300? This was the best thing I have heard about any decent hotel buffet. This is the best hotel buffet deal I have heard of so far!

Okay, Solaire, you made a comeback and I love you now.

I told my dad about this buffet and he is so excited to try it with his buddies using their senior discount pa, hahaha!

Here’s one of the chefs, Eugene, telling us about the buffet. I didn’t get his full name. He just told me, next time I’m back at Fresh, to look for him, Eugene. Yes, sir!

There’s a Ceasar Salad station! Their Ceasar Salad is also quite good! Make sure to tell the guy you want anchovies on your salad or he might assume you don’t want it. I like that he’s mixing the salad in the cheese round.  for presentation!

SUMMARY

I am going to Solaire not just for casual gambling, but now, I’m more excited to return to their buffet! It should tell you something that I am more determined to go back to Solaire for Fresh rather than to gamble, haha.

Food-wise, Solaire has never failed me. I have never had a poor food experience at Solaire. You know how party food sometimes is poor quality, over-cooked, dry and tasteless because the kitchen has a hard time coping with the big volume? I have never experienced that at Solaire. And Fresh has maintained that good reputation for me – the food is fresh, delicious and perfect.

Aside from that, I was pretty happy with my Solaire Fresh buffet experience, and I think for the price, it’s very value-for-money. You really can’t beat a buffet that’s less than P2,300 net and already includes unli-lobster, unli-wine, beer and other drinks, fresh sashimi, roasted meat carvings, grilled meats, real, fresh mozzarella, made-to-order Ceasar Salad, etc… Sobrang sulit na talaga, especially if you like lobster!

I highly recommend this buffet! If you haven’t tried it yet, please check it out. 

Also, you’ll be happy to know that Solaire still has FREE PARKING!

Please check their schedule before you go. They only have dinner on weekdays. I think lunch is only available on Sundays.

    You are an angel! I was looking for a good buffet restaurant that won’t cost the earth and came across this article of yours. I always avoided Solaire restaurants aside from Red Lantern because I always felt robbed. 3,599 for a steak dinner without drinks. Huh! Now I am taking my Mom in law to Fresh because of your informative blog. Thanks so much!

      Wow, thank you for the compliment, Kinny! 🙂 It really makes me happy to hear that people get some useful information from the blog! I know right, the prices at the other restaurants at Solaire do feel like highway robbery 😀

      Have a nice time at Fresh! 🙂
