Good ambiance and excellent food. Wine list was pretty good too. I recommend the fish. There are ordinary tables and also more lounge style areas where it is a bit more casual but with a sea aspect.

Probably the best meal we've had in Cebu, although it's not a local cuisine, but definitely a place you don't want to miss. Beautiful decor, beware of the tropical weather - sit under the roof to avoid sudden shower.

We stayed at Moevenpick resort and saw the great reviews for Abaca and decided to try it out. We ordered the tenderloin and it was delicious- tender and perfectly cooked. I ordered the creme brulee with vanilla from thaiti for dessert and it was one of the best I have ever had.

The food was excellent and presented in an appealing way. The service was attentive and helpful without being overbearing. We really liked the attractive outdoor seating that made the most of a beautiful ocean front setting. I only wish the portions were smaller so that we could have tried more of the dishes. We were so full we couldn't bear... More

Came with family for dinner one night. Nice to meet the Ozzie chef on being seated who guided us to our choices. Bouillabaisse was great, prawn pasta superb, kids had pizzas. Home made bread from heaven. Great wine list! Wife had a great looking cocktail, kids indulged in mock tails and milkshakes that they loved. Very little to fault. I... More

Late Post: Went here with my boyfriend then (now husband) and my best friend + her husband during our vacation in Cebu. Restaurant was very nice, attention to detail is amazing. Food and service excellent! Highly recommended by one of my friends and he was right! Great restaurant and a must when you are in the area.
