Food is good, ambience is good especially at night. If you can, best to come here on weekdays as the place would be full on holidays and weekends.

It was our first night and we were told we need to go here to experience Philippine cuisine. Because there is so much traffic in Cebu Mactan, it can take a long time to reach this restaurant. You need to add an additional 100 paseo to your taxi trip because the location is far out on a pier and the... More

The restaurant is located by the water, the ambiance is nice and the food are just good, though doesn't compliment with the place.

After hearing of the beautiful setting of the Lantaw restaurant we were immediately sold. The place itself is quite out of the way, with a 30 minute uber (yes Cebu and Manilla have Uber!!). We were lucky enough to have prime seats on at the front with fantastic ocean views looking back over Cebu city which lit up at night... More

Once again this is native dining but with a nice twist. It is located over the water and at the south end of Mactan which in the evening allows for quite a view of the sun setting over the island of Cebu. Having visited the Philippines many times this is one of the better restaurants in my opinion as it... More

Went to Lantaw on a weekday and we were quickly seated at a table with a fantastic view of the ocean. When we ordered our meal the waiter informed us that they were out of crab. We ended out ordering fried shrimp, garlic prawns, stuffed squid, barbecued pork, rice, and fish stew. The fried shrimp was a big disappointment, very... More

It takes a while to get to this place because of the traffic. Parking was a bit of a problem, We arrived in the early evening and the place was very busy. No problem in finding a table for 6. Fresh fish was on order but settled for squid adobo and buko chicken. Squid was well cooked. The rest of... More

Been here with my wife and loved it! So many people like Koreans and Filipinos but it was a good place to hang out with friends for dinner or a date on the sea. It's not near from the highway so you need to take a small cab to take you there. We paid 40 pesos and it took like... More

The location of the restaurant it’s unbelievably romantic. It’s pretty far away from downtown – at least 40 min by cab – but it’s totally worth it. The food is traditional Philipino style, really fresh and tasty. The bamboo floating platform gives the restaurant a dreamy and old-fashion flair, plus the the laguna view, which makes the experience unforgettable.

Visited in December 2016. Nice location but view no better than anywhere else in the Philippines. For a restaurant located on the water, the seafood selection is poor and most food we had didn't taste fresh. The best dish was some grilled chicken which says something. It rained heavily when we were there so everyone got moved into a big... More
