“Excellent restaurant in Cebu!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I'm currently staying at the hotel as a break for a business trip in Manila. I have to say the food has been one of the best parts of my weekend trip. Really a fantastic restaurant and a nice change from eating at the fairmont makati all week - food is much better here across all meals. What really has stood out is the soup - I've had amazing asparagus and pumpkin soup. Service is very friendly and personable. Even if you aren't staying at the hotel but are nearby I'd definitely pay a visit!

“Lovely location, lovely restaurant”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Hidden away behind a high fence and some lovely gardens, Abaca is hidden gem. The ambience is wonderful, nestled in the gardens, and/or overlooking the sea. At night the setting is further enhanced by the lighting in the gardens.
The food is very good, and I think there is something for most people on the menu. Prices are high by Philippine standards, but are reasonable if compared to restaurants in other countries.
The staff are good, know the menu well, and offer suggestions. They are attentive to needs. The chef also comes to the table to check that the meals are ok.
Lovely restaurant, and I will be back here on a future visit.

“Good staff and great food!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Abaca restauirant is a must-visit for those in Cebu. The menu has plenty to choose from, and the staff were excellent. I thought the food portions too were generious. Unlike typical places high on quantity and low on quality, this one was totally different. Great experience overall, and I would recommend it!
