Cebu is never short of delicious dining places but sometimes, diners look for more than just food. With stylish places popping everywhere, it is no surprise that Cebu has more than a few to offer.
Pig and Palm
Negros Rd, Cebu City
The Pig and Palm by the renowned Michelin Starred chef Jason Atherton made quite a buzz during its opening. Highly celebrated for its unique twist of Filipino cuisine, the restaurant offers more than gastronomical feast. Dining here provides a sense of tranquility brought out by the coming together of interior decoration’s perfect combination. Oozing with big city sophistication, the outstanding ambience of this place is the perfect embodiment of cozy dining.
Morals and Malice
2/F Tinderbox. Archbishop Reyes Ave., Banilad, Cebu City
Morals and Malice is a premiere lounge and bar designed by none other than the world-renowned Kenneth Cobonpue himself. The stunning establishment features two identities, the morals is the garden-like lounge that serves all-day brunch menu with craft coffee and coffee cocktails while the malice is the cocoon-like bar that serves craft cocktails. The bamboo and rattan decorations complements the lit onyx flooring together with the art installations, and well-designed furniture makes this restaurant both fresh and surprising. Seriously, who wouldn’t love it here?
4/F The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu
There’s always something appealing about wall arts in restaurants, the black and white drawing depicting the streets of Vietnam is a fitting piece to the comforting and delicious cuisine of this authentic Vietnamese restaurant. The dangling yellow lights paired with sturdy woodwork, black and white floorings, marble counter, and red chairs creates a new definition for chic and casual dining.
La Vie Parisienne
371 Gorordo Ave, Cebu City
Exuding a sense of romance which enhances the dining experience, La vie Parisiene is a gem in Cebu dining. The dome shaped cellar with all the different variety of wines, the bakery with French breads, the cherry blossoms, pizza, and all the different types of cheesy goodness is the excellent pair for late-night conversation with friends. Day or night, the place is simply beautiful. Of course, The La Vie Parisiene experience would not be complete without the outdoor dining which made this restaurant permanent on our love-to-dine-in list.
Eblock3 Cebu IT Park
Easily considered as the newest addition to the stunning architectural structures in Cebu. Since its early construction stages, The Pyramid had been much anticipated by the curious Cebuanos. The angled glass, steel, and concrete structure in white paint gives a distinct trademark to this one of a kind restaurant. The building is a pleasant addition to the line-up of dining places in the premiere business district of Cebu. During nighttime, the illuminating lights transforms the already marvelous structure into a more vibrant dining attraction.
The Greenery, Mabolo, Cebu City
Fitting name derived from the favorite days of washing away the weekday blues. The Weekend is home to the famous mouth-watering Fat Bastard and its Gastro pub is best known for its 16-tap nitro draft system. The modern industrial interiors with features predominantly made of concrete, wood, and steel gives emphasis to the addition of plants placed as a design inside the restaurant and the overlooking spacious grass lawn outside. The minimalist setting with comfy leather seats, together with all the delectable food and drinks makes this the perfect place to appreciate a beautiful sunset.
Abad Street, Apas, Cebu IT Park,
Woodwork, concrete, and glass seems to be the new staple for restaurant interiors these days and we totally understand why. This newly opened place at the heart of IT Park is a fusion of red brick walls and a little bit of nature. Incorporating the modern rustic with a touch of green is a refreshing idea for the city style dining experience.
