Review: Finestra (Solaire Resort & Casino)Wednesday, March 18, 2015 ManilaResto, ReigningStill FoodTrips, Reviews, Solaire, Zomato,
The moment we entered Finestra, we were already very much overwhelmed with the grandiose of the place. It definitely screams Italian elegance with those beautiful chandeliers, plush seats and elegant table setting.
I notice that they have tables for big groups and small intimate ones. The wrap around patio and glass wall overlooking Manila Bay is perfect for that romantic dinner with your love ones. Class and elegance at it’s finest.
They also have an open bar with wines and liquors on display. We we’re not able to try those of course but I guess it’s worth mentioning.
We we’re introduced to Finestra’s chef and saw the open kitchen. The chef has been kind enough to tell us all about their anniversary dish and a little bit about Finestra, which means “windows” in English by the way.
We tried Saltimbocca Alla Sorrentina – Finestra’s anniversary dish. It’s braised veal with speck ham and buffalo mozzarella plus cherry tomatoes.
I was already salivating just looking at the dish. And when I tasted it, OMG! It was delicious. The meat is soft and juicy. The cheese added so much flavor to the already flavorful meat. And the tomatoes added a little sweetness and a bit of tangy flavor. It was divine.
I help myself to another serving even if I know I should be leaving some space coz we have 5 more restaurants to visit. I just can’t say no to the mozzarella. I swear. :)
This dish costs Php 900++ in Finestra but I must say, with that kind of quality and taste, plus the breath taking view and experience, it is definitely worth it.
