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!

We were expecting a traditional paella, but instead we had lots of overcooked rice, with few unsavoury seafood. The meat used for the paella was of very poor quality: the pork was only fat and the chicken? Do you call that chicken? 2 pieces of skinny boned chicken... Sorry, but there is a lot to improve in that place...

I ordered Callos with 'extremely delicious' quote. And it was just an average beef stew of almost 500 PHP. Other menus may not be disappointing, but there are not cheap as well. I think this is just a proper restaurant for those who are willing to pay much for good foods.

Great tapas and house wine . The pizza was nice . Must try the prawns and mashroom tapas . Probably most authentic Italian as well on Lapu Lapu . Welcome change if you need a break from Philippino cuisine

Went with another friend and had several items mostly pre-dinner type food. We also had some cocktails and wine with the snacks. Good quiet and clean.

Very close to Shangri-la, Mactan resort. We(2) ate Paella, Gambas, and one of tapas-name fogot, with 5 bottles of beer. Foods taste good , amount is enough, and the price is reasonable(compared with resort). I recommend paella and gambas. It takes 30 minutes to cook Paella, so if you want it, order it first and then choose others next.
