Really nice view of Cebu city, good food, good prices , lots of locals and family there so you know its good. We didn't have a reservation and waited 1/2 hour but definitely worth it.

The restaurant is situated on the seashore in Cordova. They try to serve all sorts of Filipino food - variety of produce from the sea, grilled, stewed and even boiled ones. Alas! The food is not impressive and some are quite costly. For the long trip to this restaurant from the Cebu City, there is nothing memorable but the long... More

I've been to this place twice already and what I really like is the view of the sunset and the Cebu City lights when it starts to lit up in the late afternoon / early evening. The food is okay, both the price and the taste but I think the establishment should do better at taking the customers order in... More

Food is good, ambience is good especially at night. If you can, best to come here on weekdays as the place would be full on holidays and weekends.

It was our first night and we were told we need to go here to experience Philippine cuisine. Because there is so much traffic in Cebu Mactan, it can take a long time to reach this restaurant. You need to add an additional 100 paseo to your taxi trip because the location is far out on a pier and the... More

The restaurant is located by the water, the ambiance is nice and the food are just good, though doesn't compliment with the place.

After hearing of the beautiful setting of the Lantaw restaurant we were immediately sold. The place itself is quite out of the way, with a 30 minute uber (yes Cebu and Manilla have Uber!!). We were lucky enough to have prime seats on at the front with fantastic ocean views looking back over Cebu city which lit up at night... More

Once again this is native dining but with a nice twist. It is located over the water and at the south end of Mactan which in the evening allows for quite a view of the sun setting over the island of Cebu. Having visited the Philippines many times this is one of the better restaurants in my opinion as it... More

Went to Lantaw on a weekday and we were quickly seated at a table with a fantastic view of the ocean. When we ordered our meal the waiter informed us that they were out of crab. We ended out ordering fried shrimp, garlic prawns, stuffed squid, barbecued pork, rice, and fish stew. The fried shrimp was a big disappointment, very... More

It takes a while to get to this place because of the traffic. Parking was a bit of a problem, We arrived in the early evening and the place was very busy. No problem in finding a table for 6. Fresh fish was on order but settled for squid adobo and buko chicken. Squid was well cooked. The rest of... More
