Great food for a great price. We ate here several times and it never disappointed us. The fish was fresh and the quails were very tasty too. Outdoor seating but covered with many fans blowing.

Not so good as i had expected. Then again, we didnt had bbq. Steamed Lapu Lapu was delicious but soup with shrimp not super. Shrimp were not fresh or to long cooked. Difficult to peal. Nice place to sit. Next time i will try pork belly!

You get to Choose between Meat & Fish to Grill. I always prefer Scallops, Beef and Barbecue. These are the most Key Ingredients to a fulfilling AA BBQ experience. They also Grill a Huge Whole fish with an Affordable price, that promise to fill your belly. the food becomes even more delicious the more people you're with, Family, Friends, Colleagues.... More

My husband loves shell fish soup and AA BBQ serves one of the best we have tasted. Other favorites include the sizzling bangus, calamares, and the pork belly. My sons love baked scallops but this one is a disappointment in AA BBQ so i suggest don't order that unless you want to give it a try. My family and I... More

The staff were not welcoming and were rather non chalant about the menu. The restaurant was an open air restaurant and looked more like a an outdoor food court. We were disappointed with our choice of food. The butter used with the grilled scallops tasted funny and the grilled crispy pata was not crispy, was burnt and the meat was... More

I celebrated my despidida there on a tight budget and it was worth it. The viands were cheap, mostly less than 200 each, with relatively big helpings (good for 2-3 people each) and very tasty. The service is also good and relatively fast.

I think AA Bbq has a few branches, but we stopped at the one in Lapu Lapu on the way to Cebu airport, great sinigang with fresh fish, that you choose yourself, and also has a couple of bbq pork skewers. Great place to eat if your on the way to the airport, as most airport food is the same,... More

I visited AA BBQ after a review on the Lonely Planet guide and was very impressed. Initially it seemed quite rustic as I was expecting a proper restaurant but you pick what you want from a selection of meat and fish and they cook it up on the BBQ for you. As soon as the food was served my scepticism... More
