Dine under the stars this Valentine’s at The Terrace of Maxims Hotel

Still thinking of where to take your special someone this Valentine’s Day? Here’s a great recommendation! Why not Dine Under The Stars at The Terrace of Maxims Hotel in Resorts World Manila. It’s exactly what my wife and I did just a couple of nights ago.

Though we had this particular dinner a couple of days before Valentine’s, it was a great way to kick off the season of love, given the ambiance, preparation and, yes, even the kind of dishes prepared for the evening.

You see, there are a few things more romantic than a candlelit dinner under the stars, and The Terrace at Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) all-suite Maxims Hotel made sure to take it up a notch for Valentine’s Day with its Dine Under The Stars package.

During our special dinner date, we were featured a gourmet 4-course dinner, a sommelier’s selection of wine pairings, a live acoustic band, floral arrangements, and languorous lighting by the poolside. We even had our own wait staff nearby — it’s everything one could think of for a truly memorable date.

The dishes lined up by The Terrace of Maxims Hotel for this evening’s dinner was nothing short of incredible.

A steaming bowl of creamy lobster bisque with carrot pearls.

The Terraces offers a good selection of mains to satisfy any craving you may have… with choices of boneless beef shortribs braised in red wine served with cheddar cheese polenta and roasted cippolini onions and chestnuts, crispy pan-seared snapper fillet basted with sweet and sour tamarind glaze on Nicoise vegetables and rosemary butter sauce, or Chicken Kiev stuffed with grilled ratatouille vegetables and mozzarella served on a bed of sundried tomato sauce and olive capellini pasta.

Being the meat-lover that I am, I went for the Boneless Beef Shortribs braised in red wine served with cheddar cheese polenta and roasted cippolini onions and chestnuts.

My wife, on the other hand, opted to go with the Crispy Pan-Seared Snapper Fillet basted with sweet and sour tamarind glaze on Nicoise vegetables and rosemary butter sauce.

We also had a great selection of wines to complement the delightfully flavorful mains.

I particularly enjoyed their Raffa Sparkiling Vino Blanco. I highly recommend that you try it yourselves during your own date night.

Dessert was equally fantastic as well. To cap off a perfect dinner date, we were served Cheesecake St. Valentine — The Terrace’s ode to romance.

Cheesecake St. Valentine – Toppings of lusciously tart lemon and berry marmalade, and a crisp citrus tuile adds depth and texture to the velvety sweetness of the cheesecake.

It goes without saying that my wife and I had a truly wonderful evening dining under the stars.

Diners at the Terrace can choose between a table for two by the poolside where the waters reflect the twinkling stars, or the cabanas for a little bit more privacy and a truly decadent and romantic evening.
