Took my wife here for our date night last week. Great place to spend some quality time together. Bring a bottle of wine or two and a few blankets, occupy a chair, and play low volume music. Very romantic to look out at all the city lights. Make sure you have a car as I believe getting there and back... More

Absolutely one of the places to visit while in Cebu. It was breathtaking and must see place. There are other places along the way as you go up. But definitely try to fit this spot in your itinerary

As the name suggests, it is in an elevated area of Cebu and offers an excellent view of the entire city. This is specially attractive at night where you see the lights around the area.

It was a foggy evening when we went so it was cold and view was not very clear. One can still see the lights of the city and harbor. There are food kiosks and souvenir stores in the area though prices are a bit high and mostly beer with barbecue. It is a good place to hang out and relax... More

We self drove and went up the mountain. We were actually looking for a different lookout and came across this one. It was pleasant enough with a good view.

We had overseas friends visiting us and Tops is a wonderful place to show what Cebu has to offer. Clean and friendly staff with good security and car parking. Php 100 per person. Good value
