#SulEAT | Affordable buffet and a relaxing ambiance by the Marikina riverbanks at ‘Renaissance Cafeteria’

When I accompanied my mom during the reunion with her high school batchmates, I got the chance to visit Marikina, the place where I was born. We visited the biggest outlet center, the Marikina Riverbanks Center, and I got the chance to see and touch the world’s biggest shoes housed in Marikina Shoe Gallery.
I navigated the web to find restaurants near the mall and office complex. I suggested that we should try Renaissance Cafeteria, which is offering an affordable buffet at P150 (plus 10% service charge). It’s too late for our lunch!
Renaissance Cafeteria offers lunch and dinner eat all you can menu. Unlike other buffets in the same price range, they offer a wide variety of Filipino dishes.
It also has a function room at the second floor which can be used as venue for events and celebration of special occasions.
What I like most here is their desserts and salad – very fresh!
It’s an ordinary Filipino menu and Filipino place but its ambiance is what makes this place different from the other restaurants in Marikina.
They set the trend in Metro Manila on the extensive use of decors in buffet set-ups and dining area.
