“Just average”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Went last month, just an average restaurant. Dont think the Chef was in the night we went, as we were the only ones there.

The food is cooked with a lot of oil, sorry i dont like that.

Wont bother again

“bit pricey, but good spanish feeling”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Food was good, location is also fine, and prices a bit upmarket, but if you can manage with few tapas, it is ok.

Tapas are of very good quality, and I am spanish, so I know what I am talking about.

I just missed some proper affordable wine... there are lots of wines that you can buy for 3 euros in Spain that are simply outstanding.

“Would be a 5 star review but...”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Ipar took my money at the poker table, haha.

But seriously, the paella is the best in cebu, the wings are great and super spicy, and the clams are cooked perfectly. If the prices were a bit lower I would be here every week, but instead I come once a month. No problems with service, very attentive waitresses.

Overally, probably the best restaurant in Cebu...too bad Ipar got lucky on the river, you dog!!!

“Pleasant Experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Ours was a bit of a different affair. A friend of mine actually shot some ducks with a hunting party on another Island. He brought them to Ipar to prepare them.

The ducks were prepared in a wine marinate for a couple of days and then roasted. We ordered several other entrées and side dishes form the menu as well.

All in all we had a great time and enjoyed the atmosphere! Ipar's, like other specialty places, doesn't get the traffic that they could. Filipinos just like what they like and the numbers of well traveled Filipinos with expanded palettes is somewhat limited.

Ipar's is well worth a go!!!
