I did not expect to find a restaurant in Cebu that I could consider excellent. For me to say a restaurant is excellent, I must be fully satisfied with the service, the ambiance, the quality of the dishes, and the depth and breadth of its...wine cellar. For starters, we had seaweed crackers and squid ink croquettes. We paired the starters with Mas Sardana, Brut Nature NV Cava, Spain. I had the Poached Red grouper with gruyere crust, parsley Adlai, and balsamic caviar, and I paired it with El Brindis, Carignan Monsant, Spain, if I remember correctly. The service was polite and impeccable. I couldn't believe I was in the Philippines. This place is world-class!More

A friend suggested this restaurant because of the Michelin-starred chef Jamie Atherton connection. My first impression was very good - the interior was simple, classy and made predominantly of wood. I found the menu very “varied” that I didn’t really know what kind of a...restaurant it is. It is pricey ! We decided to try 3 items on the menu to share. We started with Seaweed crackers, wasabi & calamansi mayo which we both loved; specially the wasabi & calamansi mayo which we asked for extra serving. Then came the Pulled pork & smoked red pepper tagliatelle, confit egg yolk. The pulled pork has a “corned beef” consistency. I was expecting it to be a bit dryer. Don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful dish and once mixed with the confit egg yolk, we enjoyed it very much. We even experimented with dipping the seaweed crackers on the sauce and it worked well. Then came the reason where I could not give a 5/5 score, The third item we ordered arrived way after we finished the first 2 dishes. I had to request the staff to check on it as i was tempted to cancel it. When the Truffle mac n cheese, glazed pork belly, smoked cheese, brioche crumb, the first thing I noticed was the “corned beef” looking glazed pork belly. It must be a favourite finish in the kitchen. The taste though was beautiful. I could smell and taste the truffle oil. It was generously used. The cheeses used for the dish was good. I had calamansi juice as there was nothing on the drinks menu that I was tempted to try. On the whole, the food was very good, i find it too pricey, the ambiance was nice.More

The restaurant has a nice ambience, private seating (we were seated at a private booth in front of the bar) and a full bar. All the dishes and desserts and cocktails that we ordered were all curated carefully and served beautifully. We had great time...here and left the restaurant full and satisfied. Confit pork belly and miso carrots were my favorites!More

Food, ambiance and service was excellent. The seaweed crackers, risotto with cauliflower and pork belly were great recommendations from the staff. The three dishes play well together for a combination taste and texture. Perfect place for a date night. We will definitely be back.

Stunning restaurant with incredible food and cocktails. Coming from London, we would expect to pay 4 times the amount for the same quality and service back home. If you're looking for a very special evening while you're away, head here, you won't be disappointed!

An excellent surprise for dinner with colleagues; hadn’t expected such a dining experience near our office building. The food was quite special; beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Great service team across our large group (20+); professionally patient and attentive. Drinks menu was top notch also;...loved the Negroni! Well enjoyed after a long day. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner in Cebu - definitely!!More

Don’t expect too much. Made a booking for the private dining room 5days prior our reservation and the lady on the other line said she would get back to me. She finally called the evening before our booking saying that they cannot accommodate us in...the private dining area because it’s under renovation and they will seat us in the main dining instead, which was fine but upon our arrival, there were diners in the private dining room. The male manager and Rose (the lady taking the reservation) could not even explain. Food would’ve been good but that just left a bad taste!More

Absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!! Definitely one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at in my life and my husband and I travel a lot and eat often in nice restaurants and this place is truly EXCEPTIONAL 😍😍😍. The flavour combination are totally unexpected yet so creative...and they work perfectly. Everything is cooked and seasoned to perfection which really rarely happens 🤩🤩🤩. I asked for salt and pepper already before the meals arrived and didn't need it at all. The service was impeccable, so was the setting. We had the Mac & cheese, cauliflower salad and broccoli with crispy egg, poached strawberries and the "bananita" 👌👌👌👌👌 Couldn't rave about this place any more!!!! COME HERE NOW - How this place doesn't have 3 Michelin stars is a mystery to me!!More

From the restaurants perspective this restaurant serves top grade beef. Reality is it is Australian Beef of which I have 'never' had a good steak. As a trial I had the 200 gram Ribeye and was grossly disappointed. Lots of gristle and fat that was...married to some tough meat. Everything else was one tick above average as nothing stood out. No value for money spent period. The waiters were excellent and deserve a restaurant capable of serving food at as high a quality as the wait staff. Would we go back? No...More
