We had dinner here to get some good food for dinner after a long day of travel. It was a great meal, but VERY expensive. For three people we ordered a BBQ Cheeseburger, Korean BBQ Burger, and some Korean Fried Chicken. All were good, just not cheap. Service was okay, but not as fast/attentive as I would expect at a...

Ala carte - a bit pricey but serving is good enough for two Buffet - so many choices, I couldn't decide what to eat first! I especially liked the noodles and fresh fruit juices. Fresh fruit slices are great, too.

Nothing to report - bit expensive for the usual fare at buffets in Cebu... there is better value around. If it wasn't for the fact it is inside the wonderful changer-la ground I wouldn't think much of it at all.

Well it's a Shangrilla! Good food and what I love about it is thier Japanese and deserts it's just wow! Though the service is a challenge for them.. seems like the waiters does not know where thier function is... you have to stand-up or shout out before they'll attend to you... very so un-shangrilla. The same experience at thier lobby... More

The buffet is very very good, with a huge selection of food - both international and local. Just make sure you 'time' your visit for the breakfast. It does tend to get very crowded between 7-8am

Tides staff Mike was the most helpful and courteous of all since our last visit here. He quickly attended to our needs and saw to it that we were assisted with our transportation reservations the day after. Although we were late for the coaster/shuttle because it drove by ten minutes early, he still followed up about it the following day.... More
