Best Restaurants in Manila Joined by Re-Opened Spiral

Spiral, Sofitel Manila’s flagship restaurant, introduces unparalleled gourmet offerings from various internationally acclaimed master chefs!

For the re-opening of the New Spiral, the best buffet restaurant in Manila, Sofitel has appointed new executive chef Eric Costille to spearhead the operations. This is no minor distinction as Costille also serves as the regional executive chef of Sofitel Asia Pacific.

The award winning chef is a veteran of three-star Michelin restaurants such as Georges Blanc in Lyon and Moulin de Mougins in Cannes. He has also worked for Makati Shangri-La, the Ritz Carlton Osaka, Jakarta and Seoul, and the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, and recently opened 12 restaurants at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

“We are thrilled to have Chef Eric on board to lead Spiral into a new era,” says Aleks. “He is truly a master chef, and it is only fitting to have someone of his caliber to drive such a unique and special product as Spiral.”

The excitement is mutual as Costille shares his enthusiasm in satisfying Sofitel’s discerning clientele. ”It is a pleasure for me and my team to bring the kitchen out to Spiral, giving our dining patrons the chance to participate in the preparation of their food,” he says.

“All they have to do is choose their favorite ingredients and we cook it in front of them. My team has chosen only the best and freshest ingredients from suppliers utilizing natural farming techniques as well as key ingredients flown in from abroad.
