Abaca accommodated my last-minute dinner seating request for 14 people without any problem. There is true talent in the kitchen as everything tasted great and had a wonderful presentation. The staff was very attentive to the needs of all guests. For an intimate dinner or a large family affair, this is an ideal place to celebrate special occasions.

We have been staying in the Abaca Resort and the Abaca Restaurant has not only provided us with the most incredible breakfasts but also some stunning evening meals served both in our suite and in the restaurant itself. The restaurant is VERY romantic. The staff are quite simply excellent in every respect and the food is delicious and beautifully presented.... More

As part of the hotel the restaurant also caters for external customers. The food is amazing and the quality produced by the chefs is first rate.

Was invited to attend a birthday dinner last dec and I love every dish they served. Yummm!!! It's located in mactan Cebu. Far from the city proper but worth it. The afternoon view is also lovely

As we stayed at Abaca Resort we had breakfast, lunch and dinner here 4 days, and not one of those meals were less than fabulous. They have there own bakery that delivers fantastic bread and baked goodness. Our kids could easily have been happy just being served their bread every day. Being a pasta lover, for me the highlights were... More

Flew back to Cebu for several meetings and I decided to go back to Abaca only to dine this time. Sad to say that we weren't able to book a stay since most their rooms were taken during the holidays. We were greeted with the usual warmth and friendliness. The restaurant was a little busier this time with several larger... More

This was probably the best meal we had in over two week's in the Philippines! Granted it wasn't local cuisine but it was on par with high quality New York City restaurants. The service was great and it was reasonably priced. The breakfast was awesome as well.

We have been trying to find somewhere to eat that is actually edible in and around the Movenpick Hotel and as this is rated no.1 on the island we thought it must be good! Unfortunately, although in a lovely setting the food was pretty rank. I ordered the steak which was ridiculously expensive and my partner ordered the seabass. The... More
