Finestra is a fine dining authentic Italian restaurant at Solaire Resort and Casino. Their interiors are classy and impressive. The floor to ceiling windows brings more light and a great view of Solaire’s pool area and Manila Bay. For Solaire’s Anniversary, we were able to try Finestra’s Saltimbocca Alla Sorrentina.
Their Saltimbocca Alla Sorrentina, which was braised veal, speck ham, buffallo mozarella and San Marzano tomatoes. It was delicious! It was my first time trying veal, it also has the same texture as a medium rare beef tenderloin. I didn’t even realize that it was veal.
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been to their opening night, so I have an idea of what they would serve. I was excited because I was sure that my favorite set, the Surf and Turf will be there, and I was not wrong!
Waterside doesn’t skimp and my second time trying it, they really aim to please each diner’s tummy. We were served their famous Paella Valenciana in those cute petite pots, and my favorite Surf and Turf set. The set is a bit different than what I preciously tried, it was less overwhelming. It include slices of Hanger steak, Pork Ribs, Prawns and Salmon. It was a perfect balance of meats.
They also served us different types of sides like Humita, Potato Carbonara, Aparagus and Zucchiini Salad and Mango Salad as well. Waterside was just the second stop for the food crawl, yet we were almost full.
Oasis Garden Cafe is an open garden cafe right in the center of Sky Tower. this cafe is aesthetically pretty and calming. They let us try their exquisite teas and some of their new cakes.
These are the newest cakes that Oasis Cafe has to offer. All of their cakes are visually appetizing and delicious. And you won’t believe that these intricate and handcrafted cakes are just the same prize as those cakes you order at Starbucks!
Fourth Stop: Red Lantern
Red Lantern offers exquisite chinese cuisine in a formal dining set-up. The interiors were posh just like all the restaurants in Solaire but each having distinct designs which amply adapts to the type of cuisine they offer.
We were able to try their Wuxi Braised Ribs, which is also included in Solaire’s Anniversary special offer. Their braised beef was juicy and super tender. It has the right mix of flavors which was not overpowering. I’ve tried braised beef in other chinese restaurants and mostly, I find their flavors too overpowering. The Wuxi Braised Beef at Red Lantern taste light but definitely filling.
Yakumi is the first restaurant that will greet you once you are inside Solaire. Yakumi offers Japanese cuisine. We were able to try their Ehou Maki, which is included in Solaire’s Anniversary promo.
As its name implies, The Strip Steakhouse offers high quality steaks which are sourced internationally. Aside from steaks, Strip Steakhouse boasts of a fine selection of wines which goes well with all of their dishes.
