Learned about this restaurant from Groupon, where they offered discounted rates on their a la carte menu.I reserved a dinner scheduled at the same time as their cultural show and it was a wonderful experience. Much more than the good food, the show was a real treat! It offered a glimpse of Filipino culture, music, dance from various provinces and... More

Lakwatsa is located on the 5th floor. It has a huge signage on the parallel to the building BUT its located very near the 5th floor. With H. Cortes St. a narrow road, it takes a little strain in the neck trying to look for it for the 1st timer. It would be good if the owners can make a... More

Lakwatsa Resto Lounge is of course a very nice restaurant, if you want to dine out with friends, family or with colleagues. They serve nice Filipino food, right as it should be. So this alone is a good reason to grab your phone and make an appointment. But there is more: They have a great show, so, while dining, you... More

I just watched Byahe and I have to commend you guys. Awesome! Choreography is so smart, singers are so good. Best part was the Bird although I personally think, we can do more with Sinulog. It's our pride. Nonetheless, it was a very entertaining cultural show. Please continue with your advocacy in promoting Filipino culture.

The queen city of the south has been the host to many cultural shows. However, Lakwatsa may be considered the best show I've seen so far. While enjoying your exquisite dinner, you will be entertained by great talents of Cebu. Songs and dances are truly a sound and sight experience. From entertaining and enchanting songs of the Philippines to visually... More

This place showcases one of the best cultural show in Cebu :) I visited this place the second time during their photo contest which I and my friends joined. It was indeed a very good show

Everyone in Cebu should experience this show... and if you have visitors from out of town or out of country, this is a great place to spend the evening!

Food was good but the show was outstanding. Not the usual cultural show you see but an entertaining one mixing traditional dances with new music and choreography. Entertaining, and lots of user interaction.
