There’s a reason why the Italian cuisine is loved in every part of the world. Luckily, a trip to Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa is as close you can get to experience fine Italian food in the island. A restaurant such as Shangri-La’s Acqua, needs no introduction. Which is why we are telling you 5 more reasons why Acqua is one of the best restaurants in Cebu.
There’s the classic pizzas and pastas. However, Acqua introduces its newest signature dishes in a true Shangri La fashion –with a bang. Highlighting lobster and veal, diners can enjoy a taste of Italy with every bite. And because Acqua always surprises us with unique dishes, we suggest the Spaghetti Aragosta, a palatable seafood pasta topped with a whole lobster. The Scaloppine al Marsala e Gnocchi allo Zaferano is a stir-fried veal and saffron gnocchi, also a must try for all the foodies out there.
An exclusive 2 for 1 offer on selected a la carte dishes at Acqua are up for grabs to Golden Circle members. Choices includes some of our must-try’s namely, Risotto al limone Insalata di scoglio al Pesto (a creamy lemon Risotto with Seafood Salad and Basil Pesto), Scaloppine al marsala e gnocchi all zafferano (Veal marsala with handmade butter gnocchi) and Mango Semfreddo e Cioccolato (Mango and yoghurt iced cake, chocolate soil and topped with chocolate ice cream and ginger syrup). Hurry! Promo runs until June 30, 2017.
Last year, Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa welcomes its newest Chef de Cuisine, Andrea Burzio. Having worked at Michellin-starred restaurants in Italy and with an extensive background in international flavours, Chef Andrea delivers pleasing dishes on the table. Not only that, he makes sure every bite is just as memorable as the moments shared between families and friends in Acqua.
Nothing beats an ambiance by the poolside. At Acqua, indulge in full Italian experience by the water in an elegant and alluring scenery. Open for lunch and dinner, choose between a private room for a guests of 10, the Acqua Veranda for outdoor setting and the Gazebo for an intimate meal with the Mactan Channel view.
