Average for us

This is our first lechon when we went to Cebu. After checking various reviews, we agreed to one reviewer that their lechon was indeed salty. We tried CNT in Ayala Centre. Diguan was also average. Cost is still cheaper compared to Manila counterparts.

Food prices are reasonable. Lechon prolly taste all right or I had better but it's average. You get what you pay for. They do have several branches, my favorite will be the one in SM I think.

They say it is the best lechon in Cebu and it is most probably true . The problem is that this lechon is served in a really poor place . Bad light , no air con , poor service . My recommendation : go there , buy the lechon and go eat it somewhere else . There is plenty of... More

We went to the first store they had. Looks can be deceiving since the place looks more like warehouse than a restaurant from the outside. The restaurant on the second floor will give you an impression of the restaurant's humble beginnings as family owned restaurant that gained its fame because of word of mouth (watering word of mouth) of having...

Forget every other lechon place you have eaten... I would say that this place tops all the Lechon places in Cebu and Manila. If you are in Cebu and have time to indulge, this is a must. The fresh lechon with its crispy skin does not even come close to the ones "flown in" to Manila. The spices and fillings... More

Due to the recommendation of some personal blogs, we decided for CnT to be the restaurant where we'd take our much-anticipated first bite of authentic Cebu lechon. But boy, were we EVER SOOOO DISAPPOINTED! First off, the place. It's in front of SM City Cebu. Accessible? True. But after three minutes of locating where the entrance is (there was a... More

CnT has never failed to please my palate! Very good lechon, and excellent other dishes on the side. It is apparent with the fact that beyond 12:30PM, you will have a poor luck of trying their popular dish. Some servers are courteous and pleasant, but many of them are apparently lacking in customer service. Or have they reached their comfort... More

It tastes like a regular lechon you get in manila, I even had better. I just ate in the branch in the Ayala mall so I can't speak for the other branches. Sadly it needed mang tomas. And I've tried others that don't even need sauce. I guess my expectations were too high.

Countless times, my visitors would experienced an arrogant, careless and disrespectul treatment from your untrained staff especially those assigned in the chopping area. Suplada, bastos sumagot, nakasimangot, Very poor cusomer service! Do Not be too confdent that you got the best lechon! Many to choose from now with Rico's, Ayer, Zugbuchon, boneless belly in Rodeo Grill, in the lechon business... More

We were in Cebu last March 2015 and we make sure to eat the famous Cebu Lechon. My friend suggested we should go to CNT which is in front of SM City Cebu. Location: Accessible because its in front of the mall. Venue: it can accommodate more than 50 people. Staff: not friendly, specially that we dont speak Cebuano. We... More
