Well-renowned for its "no-borders-cuisine" adage, Chateau 1771 is brimming with pride to be the metropolitan's finest fusion cuisine conglomerating the different derivatives of Swiss, Italian, and French culinary concoctions.
Nestled right in front of the beside the Greenbelt 5 entrance and fronting the lush greeneries of the Gbelt garden, it is a distinctive restaurant that would catch one's attention due to its Old World-Euro decadent interiors that is brightly-lit and with a spacious dining capacity. Despite its Euro-touch, one couldn't discount the art nouveau paintings done by famous Filipino artists, that adds a crest of prestige to an elegant ambiance along with the plush lounge sofas, high ceilings, and deluxe chandeliers.
A complimentary bread welcomes you while awaiting for your order. I have always been steadfast to my "no-four-legged" diet(a programming we used for our anti-four legged creatures diet, even a crippled cow wouldn't count), so I grab myself a Pan Fried Chicken with Three Cheeses(Php410 + 10% SC), a delicious boneless chicken steak topped with gravy, mashed potato, ratatouille, and three kinds of melted cheese. Comes next to my main course is a Four Season Salad(Php360 + 10% SC), luscious salad of mixed green and cheddar cheese, prosciutto and tomatoes, maple, vinaigrette, and garnished with caramelized walnuts. It was a small order, but upon serving, little did I know that the amount is already good for two. Topping it all is the Coffee Pie(Php150 + 10% SC), a chocolate cashew crust with coffee filling, topped with cream cheese and toffee sauce. It was supposed to order two more, the Triple Chocolate Mousse and the Coffee Bean Sansrival but I don't have enough space in my gastronome.
Chateau 1771 belonged to the same restaurant group with Sentro 1771, SideBar Cafe, and Cafe 1771, under the brainchild of culinary master Chef Vicky Rose Pacheco, who incidentally offers a 5-course wine pairing menu this January 14, 2011, in cooperation with Bird in Hand Wine Cellar(from Adelaide Hills, Australia) with Justine Nugent, wine maker as a special guest.
