Opposite the Shangri-La Resort Mactan so this is an alternative to eating at the resort. The pizzas are large and well made. Pasta dishes are fine but not particularly special. Sangria pitchers are about $30 after tax but wines tend to be expensive every where in Asia. Local beers are about $2.50. Staff are attentive as always but be careful:... More

Went to Cebu 2 years ago and this is the "Go-to" restaurant when you are sick of hotel food and their prices. My son loved their Margherita pizza back then (age 5) and he was still in love with it this time (age 7). The only difference was he can now eat the whole pizza by himself. The prices were... More

Three of my work mates and I headed across the road from the accommodation to try this Restuarant out. Had read the reviews. Yes the paella takes 30 minutes. Not bad. The pizzas are great. The squid was also delightful. One of the lads had the spaghetti marinara - he said it was also yum. Not cheap but better than... More

This restaurant is near our hotel where we stayed. The food selections were extensive because it's a combination of Spansih and Italian. We ordered our favourite and most craved for Paella Valenciana and Callos. We waited for almost 30 minutes for our food to be served, thank goodness the food tasted good.

This restaurant is just opposite to Shangrila, hence to save time had dinner in Hola Espana. I always had the same dish as shown in the cover pic of the retaurant, but they took long time to serve it. Also the price seems higher than the value (service and food) .

The restaurant is right outside the Mactan Shangrila which is the venue for IronMan events in Cebu. Very convenient place to eat after the event - especially since transportation getting out of the area is difficult. Pizza and pasta are good. I especially like the seafood pasta - garlicky.

Decent food but lacking good Spanish dishes with a lot of Italian menu on offer?!? But paella is good, just order first because it takes time - made fresh.

Very good Hawaiian pizza! Greek salad didn't leave a good impression...Employees are helpful. For me it's more Italian than Spanish restaurant cause most of orders from menu are pizzas, pastas etc... Can say good lunch and nice time with you!
