This is one of my favorite places i Cebu, and it's near the Airport, with a beautiful waterside location. Many excellent dishes that cannot be found elsewhere, and they always have a real Italian chef--born in Italy. You can eat inside or outside, you are recognized and appreciated, there is beautiful landscaping and you can watch kids enjoying the pool.... More

This restaurant is also located inside the Shangri-La resort. Although the breakfast selection is not as wide as Tides, the view of the beach in the morning is worth dining in this restaurant. The area is clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating.

Others in the group vouched the same for other pastas and soups. The bread they serve comes with a unique tomato dip which was loved by us. The wine selection is... More

Aside from the breakfast, this restaurant serves excellent risotto and pasta. The desserts are a must try, too! Very good view of the pool and the sea, too! Must try when in Shangrila Mactan.

Last March 22, 2017, I made reservations for dinner and told them about my wife's birthday. We entered for dinner at the appointed time, and we were brought to the best place for a cozy dinner. Immediately, Mr. Jun, the restaurant manager introduced us to Chef Mark (who is called Max by the F&B staff). The chef guided us in... More
