Our search for great restaurants to dine in led us to LANTAW in Day-as, Cordova-- a mere fifteen to twenty minutes away (depending on traffic) from the old Mactan Bridge.
Diners, both locals and tourists, get to have a spectacular view of Cebu City's mountains by day and bright lights during the night, while they feast on all the mouthwatering native dishes at LANTAW.
The restaurant is owned and operated by Pages Holdings Inc. (PHI), the company behind homegrown brands from Cebu:“ THIRSTY" Fruit Juices & Shakes and Mooon Cafe's Mexican-Inspired Restaurant.
The restaurant's very own version of Spicy scallops (P 14
and Bakasi (P 130) is particularly amazing.
Other favorites would include their Sizzling Gambas (P 120), Humba (P 16
, Kare-kare na pata (P 150) and their Original Bacolod Chicken BBQ (P 130) among many others. And of course, a meal is never the same without indulging on desserts such as their Bibingka Cake ala mode (P 70) and the Lantaw Halo Halo (P 95).
LANTAW is the answer for a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city, without having to leave town. Regardless of where you're coming from, it will definitely be worth the drive.
