The Round Table started its humble beginnings as Q Bistro, which opened at the Malayan Plaza, Ortigas in June of 2006. Early this year, it took another step to reach greater heights as it relaunched Q Bistro as The Round Table, along with catering company, Q Provisions. The Round Table (located in front of Zen Nutrients) was born to showcase an all-you-can-eat tasting session along with the goal of offering something fresh to the busy streets of Kapitolyo.

There are a lot of factors that make The Round Table in Kapitolyo, Pasig a special restaurant. The food, handled by Q Provisions Catering’s Executive Chef Mia K. Capay, goes beyond the norm and what’s predictable. How so? The items on the “round buffet table” consist of various themes with several superstar dishes that change EVERY DAY. πŸ™‚

On Mondays, get ready to relish outstanding flavors of South American cuisine. Come Tuesday, a grand tasting tour of Italy with a pasta bar filled with exciting options of spaghetti, fettuccine or penne complete with red and white sauce awaits. On Wednesdays, it’s heavenly Mongolian dishes. Thursdays will have you filled up with the Filipino Twist theme, while Fridays are all about Roast Carving featuring Roast Beef, Roast Pork loin and Herbed Roasted Chicken.

What happens on weekends? Saturdays and Sundays offer smartened-up menu version from Chef Mia with the luxurious flavors of French, Asian, and Spanish menu. WOW, right? This “all-you-can-eat tasting session” concept makes The Round Table an ideal and unique spot to enjoy different food specialties (available in the catering services) that will please pretty much anyone.

Guess what’s most surprising! Regular rate per person is only PhP 295. But if you “Like” their Facebook page, the buffet rate further goes down to PhP 199/pax. Yes, it’s a steal!

Review of The Round Table – An All-You-Can-Eat Tasting Session (Kapitolyo, Pasig City)

Ambiance: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

The Round Table can be a great venue for private parties, corporate lunches, and other exclusive events. Its interior design looked simple but functional, fully personifying the name of the establishment. The overall ambiance wasn’t stuffy but just casual so guests won’t feel pressured or pretentious to hang out and wind down anytime of the day.

With a capacity of seating 25 to 30 people, the tables in the dining room are comfortable and quiet enough that you can actually carry on a conversation.Β There’s also a small bar setup for a quick drink and some comfort food. Neat!

Service: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

The Round Table offers a personalized service that completes a much deserved dining experience. I guess they have the good advantage of having limited space so service could really be personable, concentrated, and on point. Food on the buffet table were served fresh out of the kitchen and staffs made sure that we were all well pampered with the feel of great hospitality.

Food: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

We came on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Food options on The Round Table may be limited and nothing too fancy, but good lord, they were all delicious. For appetizers, the potato croquettes, Q Salad, and bread antipasti were excellent on the lighter side. Also kicking off the meal just right were typical Filipino breakfast items with a twist: the homemade chicken tocino and pork hamonado. Both were mildly sweet and not with an overdose of sugar. You’re going to need to eat them with steamed white rice to balance the taste.

The highlight of our meal must be the roast beef as it was so tender, hearty, and flavorful that you’d want to unhinge your jaw and get the entire piece down your throat. The meat was roasted for seven hours and I bet this is one of the dishes that’s worth a trip for. Chef Mia’s version of adobo is another must-try, as it was cooked with green mango puree and bagoong (shrimp paste) instead of the usual soy sauce and vinegar.

For dessert, we had a slice of carrot cakeβ€”not to be missed! It was moist, perfectly dense, and unbelievably fudgy with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting slathered over the top. Other food items were good as well but not particularly as memorable.

      The choices are not the type that will bring you to a food coma but you’ll love the concept of changing dishes. The Round Table is a foodie destination that’s worth visiting and checking back once a week even for an entire year (and you won’t get tired of facing the same dishes)!

    They all look good to me, especially the anti pasti and the roast beef. I don’t know about it being simple, they look like my kind of food. I hope to try this soon.

      We met a decent variety of food that day but your observation hit it right. The antipasti plus the roast beef were the best. My boyfriend grabbed a plateful of the roast beef. It was heaven!

      This is one of the restaurants that prove that you don’t have to pay a hefty price to have superb food on a buffet setting. The dishes are exquisitely pre-plated, and for an inexpensive price point, The Round Table is pretty classy.

    The words all you can eat, instantly had me excited. Although I havent heard of many of the menu items you mentioned the photos you have of them make my mouth water. This sounds like such a great experience, my hubby is such a foodie. This would be a great date night idea for us.

      Inexpensive does not mean cheap quality of food here. The Round Table is a good place for you to dine in anytime. We’re already excited for a return visit and watch how chefs “play” with food. πŸ˜›

    Wow, different food themes everyday? That’s interesting and obviously not going to be boring (we all know how boring it is to go to a buffet restaurant that serves the same food every.single.day)! And you also made their food all sounds super delicious as well! Love the look of the carrot cake, i want a bite!

    • Rochkirstin Santos

      Yes! It’s my first time to encounter such a buffet restaurant and I thought it’s a great deal. I like the idea of having different themes/cuisines popping up every day. It’s visiting the same restaurant but with a different set of delightful items from appetizers and mains, to desserts. πŸ™‚

    199? wow.. such a great deal… the first time I read the title, i thought it was some kind of medieval inspired resto hehe..
    they got some interesting dishes here especially the Adobo sa Mangga.. sounds new to me.. adobo used to be sweet but with Manga, I’m sure it will add a new kick and twist for this famous pinoy ulam hehe. Thanks for sharing ^_^

      Yup, you have to show them a screenshot that you Liked their Facebook page to be able to avail that discounted rate. πŸ™‚ It’s best to dine in here when you’re on the lookout for something new and interesting to try without worrying about the price.

    The price is definitely attractive, and so is the ambience and the food. It is just too bad that it is too far from where I am. Hope they venture into QC in the future.

      We drove from QC to Capitol Drive and it took us only 30 minutes with regular traffic. I think it’s worth the trip! πŸ™‚ The ambiance is very welcoming and you can ask the staff to explain the menu when you come in for the first time.

    The food looks really delicious especially the pork hamonado. I love the idea that they post their menu ahead of time so customers would know what to expect instead of getting disappointed that the dish they want is not available. I will definitely try them out once I get the chance to go to Kapitolyo again.

      There are lots of promising restaurants in the area. After you make your way through the delicious round of buffet at The Round Table, hunker down for more desserts and treats in other neighboring cafes to maximize your visit. You may be full, but you won’t be sorry. πŸ˜›

    I love to sit out in a buffet where I can eat whatever I want. My daughter and I went to Chinese restaurant yesterday. Found out I can only eat one plate now. All the food you display looks very delicious.

    Reply
    • Rochkirstin Santos

      Yes, me too. What I love most about buffet restaurants is that I have a more vivid understanding of the food and have a more familiar insight on what seems palatable unlike when ordering a la carte meals when I would feel quite sad when I see how the item written on the menu did not translate as expected to actual presentation and taste.
