My Experience at 100 Revolving Restaurant
My boyfriend surprised me in our 10 years anniversary celebration. He just asked me to wear a dress for a fine dining dinner. I have no idea on where he will take me but I am excited and yet nervous thinking if I am wearing the correct clothes, just to be safe I wore my little black dress...it never goes wrong.

It was raining that night and he just pointed the tallest building at Eastwood that he will take me on top of that. I tried to take a photo of the building but it is blurred form the raindrops on the car's windshield.
The restaurant that he will take me is located at the 33rd floor. It takes time before you reach the top floor. When we reached the top floor, that is the time that I learned on where he took me. The restaurant is called 100 Revolving Restaurant.
100 Revolving Restaurant is owned by Chef Jessie who is known to be a great chef and known to have a great taste. It is exactly located at the 33rd Floor of MDC 100 Building, C5 Corner Eastwood Drive, Libis Quezon City.
Why is it called 100 Revolving Restaurant? It is because they have at least a hundred dishes that you can choose from while dining in a revolving restaurant. The floor rotates inside the restaurant beside the window so you can have a 360 degrees view of the city above. It takes around two hours before you can finish one round of rotation. I did not notice the time passing because I enjoyed it so much.
He reserved a table for the both of us. I am really happy, he put an effort for our anniversary. He really prepared for this night. He chose the spot beside the window so we can overlook the city. I have a fear of heights but this place is nothing to be scared of. It is closed space and you can only see the city from afar, not directly below you.
Just a reminder though, if you want to experience the revolving part of the restaurant, you have to be beside the window area. Don't worry, the revolving floors will not make you dizzy while dining. It is super slow that you can barely feel it. I enjoy watching the view change so I am sure you will enjoy it too.
The ambiance of the place is romantic with its dim lights, candles and instrumental music playing. When we were assisted in our seats, appetizers and water were served automatically.
We ordered additional appetizer, one of my and my boyfriend's favorite snack. Calamari rings.
Crispy Calamari Rings. 350php
We ordered Cream of Mushroom soup which is 200php each. For the main course we ordered, check out the photos below:
US Black Angus Rib Eye Steak. 1350php
Tiger Prawns in Curry Sauce with Turmeric Rice. 950php
There is a part of revolving that you will see the chefs at work inside the restaurant. Before the night ended, we also drank some light alcohol to toast for the night.
For your reference, I will share with you some of their menu. It is hard to take photos of the menu because the light is dim but I hope it can be helpful for you my readers so you can already choose what you want to order.
