Nhez, the resto manager is very easy to deal with. We communicated mostly thru SMS and all my requests were followed. A day before the event, I had this brilliant idea of asking Nhez to play songs that remind me of Aki during the event (Sweet Child of Mine, Let’s Hear for the Boy!, Be my Little Baby, etc). I emailed her the song list at 6PM . She texted me around 8PM that she might not be able to download the songs because she’d be working late that Friday night. I was happily surprised to find out that she was able download 9 out of the 16 song requests. It was actually her husband who did the downloading. Nhez was so nice that she even gave me a copy of the CD. And although the version of Sweet Child that was played was by Nirvana and not the Sheryl Crow version that I request, this OC and OA mummy is still very happy with Guilly’s excellent customer service. 
 

What I also like about having the reception in a resto is the assurance that there will be food for everyone even if more than expected guests show up. Pinoys are notorious for not RSVP-ing and I did nt have the time and patience to ask for confirmation from friends and family. Thank you to Guilly’s, everyone went home full and satisfied. 
 

Guilly’s offers daily lunch buffet for only PhP 239. If memory serves me right, Sunday lunch is a bit more expensive because of the additional food choices available. We paid a little higher than their usual per pax rate plus service charge to make the resto exclusive. 
 

Oh, make sure that you indicate Glorietta 5 in your invites. Ours only had Guilly’s, G5 and some of our guests went to Greenbelt 5.
