When one has a relatively big budget for big and small celebrations or spur-of-the moment treats, Cebu has the restaurants that offer a fine selection of Cebuano and international dishes. Below are some suggestions.
First in this section is Café Marco
of Marco Polo Plaza Hotel in Nivel Hills, Lahug. Uptown Cebu’s buffet meals start at Php1,395 per person. Located in one of the most prominent hotels in the Queen City of the South, this restaurant with a semi-rustic setting serves Philippine, Japanese, and Western food. Smart casual attire when dining at Café Marco is required.
Speaking of prominent hotels in Cebu, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino in Salinas Drive, Lahug, also houses a hotel restaurant that serves “international delights and local favorites”—Uno. Uno’s dishes can be tasted as early as 5:30 AM. Uno closes at 11 PM.
On the other hand, Tides Restaurant, one of the four restaurants at Shangri-la Resort & Spa in Mactan, offers local and international flavors in a contemporary setting. Tides Restaurant is open from 6 AM to 11 PM. You can check out Shangri-la Resort and Spa—Mactan’s website for the full list of their ala carte menu.
With over a hundred food joints, food shacks, food stalls, restaurants, and cafes in Cebu City proper alone, it is safe to say there is something for one’s budget and taste. Whether it’s the food or the service, there is always a possibility you will have a taste of Cebu wherever you eat in this city that “never sleeps.”
