Gulliver’s of San Francisco is a fine dining restaurant which specializes on steaks. I’ve only been at their Great Eastern Hotel, Quezon City branch but they also have a branch at Makati City. Now, if you think that Gulliver’s is one of those pricey steak restaurants, then you’re totally wrong. They’re actually one of the cheapest steak restaurants I’ve been to. But what makes them really stand out among other restaurants are their ambiance and setting. Their Old English interior, dim lighting and soothing music certainly makes them a good venue for a romantic date. You should get ready to be serenaded by a pianist while you eat here.
While waiting for your order, they will serve you free unlimited bread. Well, nothing out of the ordinary about their bread but here’s a picture of it:
A favorite starter of us is their Clam Chowder Bowl (Php 160.00). Its creamy soup is perfect to warm your stomach while waiting for the main event. The soup below is just 1/2 of the original soup size because we had it split in two.
And finally, for the main event… Their steak are tender and their sauce are not the normal mushroom gravy sauce. Their sauce looks somewhat like a concentrated beef stock and it adds a lot to the flavor of the steak. It also became a habit of mine to put some of their sauce to my rice. When we order steak, we always go for their Gulliver’s Cut (Php 980.00). The default sidings for their steak are Yorkshire Pudding, Spinach Souffle, Baked Potato and Creamed Corned but you may request the waitress to change your sidings. I usually go for the Rice instead of the Baked Potato. Similar to the soup, the steak below is just 1/2 of the original steak size because we had it split in two. We also paid an additional charge for the extra sidings of the other half.
Aside from steaks, they also served good pastas. On our first date here, we also ordered Fisherman’s Spaghetti (Php 380.00) together with the steak. Well, it’s a bad move actually because we didn’t know that their servings are huge. So we’re forced to take home the pasta. However, this is definitely a must-try if you love creamy pastas and seafoods.
For the dessert, I recommend the English Triffle (Php 160.00). It’s spongy and taste somewhat similar to a fruit cake? Maybe because of the Rum?
Overall, Gulliver’s is an affordable place to enjoy a good steak (not the best but still good). It’s ambience is perfect for a romantic date and the service is great. A piece of advice: If you’re planning to celebrate your Valentine’s Day here, don’t forget to reserve a table for you and your date. This restaurant is very popular on Valentine’s Day.
