I had dinner here in one of our nights on our May vacation. Food was nice and everything looked very hygienic.Ambiance is good. The staffs were accommodating only that I don't find the security guy at entrance very useful in giving directions.

I've read a lot about Abaca Resort prior to going to Cebu, but what I didn't know is how fantastic their restaurant is. It exuded an air of exclusivity as we entered a very unassuming gate, wasn't sure if we could get through without a...More

We knew this place rated well and consequently we booked in advance. We had high expectations and weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself is in a nice garden setting, low lighting and under stated decor. The only complaint was that it was a little warm however...More

Great food, well prepared but definitely one of the most expensive restaurants in Cebu. Worth it if you're in the mood for fine dining with lovely ambience or you have someone you want to impress. It's connected to an equally lovely and pricey botique resort....More

Hi, 4 of us were just there and had an over-the-top meal: one bottle of very nice wine, lots of sparkling water, 2 salads, one pizza, and then the "sharing" steak and fish. No desserts but coffee/tea. It was excellent but... More
