It is a beautiful hotel and all staff are so friendly and helpful. My wife and I went to this Seafood restuarant to enjoy our last dinner in Cebu. The price is reasonable and the key of this restaurant is about the service, especially LoveJoy and Erwin who have been serving us the whole night. We will definitely come back... More

Booked a special birthday dinner for the wife at the observatory in Cowrie's Cove. Food was amazing and the setting was about as perfect as can be. Service could have been a bit better though. But it's the perfect place for special occasions, no doubt about it.

The seafood platter is simply delicious. It is fresh! The service is also good! Staff is friendly and helpful. Given that it is inside Shangri-la, the price is reasonable. One of the recommended restaurants in Cebu, Lapu-Lapu!

We had breakfast at the Cowrie Cove during the IronMan event last year. Food was disappointing and the only value that we had for the price (Php 1,800/pax) we paid was the view of the swim event. We went back this year and the breakfast assortment is better! Price is also lower Php 1,500/pax. Very comfortable place to watch and... More

It was nice and romantic by the water, all though my two boys came along. My hubby and I shared their seafood platter, which was deliciously fresh. My two boys also enjoyed the calamari.

For the most part our visit to Cowrie Cove was outstanding. The service could not have been better and the food is some of the best in the area. The Blue Marlin that I had was excellent. They even bring a basket of fresh seafood by the table if you are interested, with crabs still snapping. The band was absolutely... More

Surprisingly affordable for a Shangri-La restaurant, on property! They have a nice selection of seafood. The atmosphere it quiet and romantic. Most of the seating is outside, but if you're in need of A/C, they also have an inside room.

I have been going to the Cowrie Cove for at least 10 years and the place is till amazing. Be it for a romantic dinner for two or for a group the ambience, food and service have never disappointed. Loved the lobster and grouper. And the walk through the garden.
