This charming restaurant is right at the entrance of the Shangri-la Mactan resort. It was lovely change of pace from the hotel food. It is a nice stroll form the hotel. We went near Christmas time and the restaurant had beautiful lights strung around the room. The adults had tapas, which we all agreed were great. My son had the... More

I like the ambiance and the people serving us. We were there for the pizza but it was not impressive to our tongue.

Had an early family dinner - Tapas, Pizza & Salad. All very tasty with excellent friendly service. Environment is nice in a Spanish style. Only downside was many of the smoothies/juices on the menu not available!

It says Spanish but the menu is more of an Italian. The staff all help each other even the security helps open door, takes order for my margarita and help to serve. A friendly place where customers stream in a few at a time. I had the ribs which is surprisingly huge portions and super-sweet sauce. However, it should have... More

Don't bother. Service is non existent (security guard was handing out menus), when we did finally get served we were told half the drink menu was not available and main meal would be 45mins. Food was average, atmosphere dull & pricing quite high for the quality. Would not go back again.

Right across the hotel. We arrived on time only to find out someone had usurped our booking! Tapas was good but can't help that everything seemed to be cooked in the garlicky, oil based sauce. Tasted great, we love garlic. back ribs was outstanding, really good and the paella tasted like home cooking. All in all, a great place for... More

not a bad place when it comes to food. Service could have been a bit more attentive. We went there because we thought it maybe a cheaper option than eating in our hotel each day, but it turned out not that much different

Literally 50 steps away from the pedestrian entrance to Shangrila Mactan is a great place to eat Spanish inspired food and pasta and pizza. The Carbonara was creamy and very tasty as was the Marinara with olive oil and garlic. Their version of the Pepperoni pizza was a little on the dry side and tasted more like tapas, but, after...

Service is fast, average of 10-15 minutes. The place looks nice and very accessible across Shangrilla Mactan. The food, has plain taste.
