“Restaurant overlooking the beautiful cebu sea”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Cebu has temperate climate and sitting out in the open in the late evening for dinner is just lovely. The sea breeze, the sea....Our table overlooks the 'cove' and we sported lionfish as we dine. Food is on the average. The seafood is very fresh. Simple menu, nothing to rave about. It's pricey and service is okay. Overall, we have a pleasant dining experience.

“Ambience and ambience... but that's pretty much everything”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

If you don't mind cold soup because the sound of the sea relaxes you... Cowrie cove should be your choice. If you don't mind pricey but "not worth the long wait food" because it comes with stars at night, Cowrie Cove should be your choice. The seafood is fresh at least even if you have to wait for close to an hour to be served the main course after the cold soup. Yes, it was a very long dinner. Service was not at all Shangrila's standard but the waiters and waitresses do smile a lot.

“great staff”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

While we ordered shrimp in garlic, we got the version of "Nilasing na hipon". The menu should have pictures of each of the viands.

Nevertheless, the staff were very accommodating, always ready with their smile & anticipates every need.

“Great location”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Set in the grounds of the Shangri_La Hotel and over looking the sea this is a great place to hang out. For me 5pm-7pm is best as drinks are half price. Easy to recommend.
