One of the best European resto in town. You can order in advance and they will set up the place for you so when you arrive you can devour the food pronto.

This unassuming place across the street from entrance to Limketkai Center shopping mall has world class wine and cuisine. The barley soup is the best I have had outside of Switzerland. Has a great wine selection. The restaurant is spotlessly clean, with good service and real professional chefs. This is quite a find in a place like Cagayan de Oro.... More

I have stayed a few months in the city and have been disappointed with the restaurants I've been to. But La Vetta changed that. Am grateful for the delicious and HEALTHY meals (i think no other place serves msg free food) and superb service that I have not felt anywhere else. That personal feel...makes visiting there truly feel like home.... More

I have written reviews of La Vetta several times. Over the years, La Vetta has become relatively pricier and, with Carsten's attention on his many ventures, possibly the food quality has declined somewhat (but not the wonderful service). Nevertheless, leaving aside a few restaurants at pricy resorts, La Vetta is one of the three top restaurants south of Manila: La... More

The food is good and there is a nice variety. Service is good and they have good WiFi service. A nice ambiance and there is outdoor seating. I thought the prices were a little high for CDO, but I will go back as there are other selection on the menu which I would like to try.

My best pal took us to this place he called as his second home, where he goes to when he needs to 'reconnect' with life in Europe. So we all went there on a Friday night. I was not expecting much. We ordered a bottle of french wine which was recommended by their staff who knew so much about wines... More

I've heard so much about this place, so while in CDO we finally went by to check it out. Not as good as I had heard and a bit overpriced for what you get I think, but still probably the best in the City of CDO outside the Filipino food category. I had the Angus Rib Eye and was totally... More

This is my fourth time in over a week at this place. I have to say, for a resto in the remote province of the Phl, the consistency of the quality of food is commendable. I tell you this can compete with Manila's best. A french mediterranean restaurant, this gourmet place i heard from the waiter (they had a short... More

The place had the "classy" Italian feel. Unluckily, the food did not live up to the ambiance. Nothing special about La Vetta. When in CDO, chose to go to La Tegola instead for a more authentic Italian taste. Much more homier too.
