Limited to Cebu’s Mactan Island! Recommended Gourmet Restaurant BEST 10 and a list of all restaurants

It’s behind the number of restaurants in Cebu City, but the island of Mactan, where the airport is located, is not behind.

This time everyone is waiting!? Limited to the island of Mactan, the Top 10 recommended restaurants and the list of restaurants in Mactan is open to the public.

I chose the restaurant from various genres such as a restaurant with a good atmosphere peculiar to a resort area, a restaurant with a lot of variety, a restaurant with good cost performance and a restaurant with a beautiful night view.

Don’t just use the restaurant in the resort hotel where you stay because it is troublesome to go outside, please visit many places!

This ranking is based on my personal opinion.
There are many restaurants I have never been to, so I recommend this one! Let us know in the comments. We will investigate and reflect on the ranking. Also, the restaurant is in the research stage, so we will update as needed.

Mactan island only! Top 10 Recommended Restaurants

Lantaw Floating Native Restaurant


Number one is Lantau, a Filipino restaurant in the Cordoba district of Mactan! There are currently 2 stores in Lantau (Cordoba and SRP).


This Cordoba restaurant is located in a very difficult place, but it is best to enter the restaurant around 17 o’clock when the sunset sets, and eat while watching the sunset.

It is a cottage on the sea, so it is full of mood! It’s Filipino food, so please enjoy Filipino food since you came all the way to Cebu. The price is reasonable and the volume is large.

It depends on the number of people, but you can order one soup, one large rice, one fried dish, and two grilled dishes. I am satisfied with the large portion.

*On the way back, it is better to have the taxi waiting for you or go to the main street by bicycle and take a taxi or a jeepney from there. There are no cruising taxis.

Venue: Cordoba coastal area
Opening hours: 10: 00 ~ 22: 00

Scape Skydeck

It is a restaurant newly opened in 2016 where you can enjoy the night view! I would definitely recommend this place if you want to enjoy the night view of Mactan Island. You can see the sunset and the city lights are very beautiful.

Located on the top floor of a condominium building between the bridges of Mactan Island, the view from dusk to night is absolutely stunning.

The price is high, but the taste is very good! Especially this rib steak! The sauce was delicious and the meat was tender, and it was great. I have an impression that alcohol is not so expensive.

The skydeck hamburger was also delicious! The night view is beautiful, and there are many spacious sofa seats, so this is a good restaurant for a date. You are a great person to know such a restaurant!

Enjoy the beautiful night view with Mactan! If you live in Mactan, you don’t have to go to Hilltop in Cebu City to enjoy the same or better night view! You don’t have to eat, you can just relax and enjoy drinking on the sofa.

Location: Near Marina Mall
Opening hours: 17: 00 ~ 24: 00

abacá boutique

It is a restaurant with a perfect atmosphere that I would like to recommend for some anniversary. The price is rather high at around 1000 P per person, but I was excited by the delicious meal with the view of the sea and the high-class restaurant that I can’t believe it was Mactan Island!

The pizza is thin and square. This pizza is baked in a kiln. It’s 465 pages.

The pasta is Chef’s recommended pasta, 925 pieces. The tomato sauce is fresh and delicious.

Try some dessert, too. These are chocolate ice cream and brownies, but I recommend gelato ice cream. There are 3 kinds, so it might be a lot for one person. Share it with everyone.

This restaurant requires reservations. Please make sure to call or ask the hotel front desk and make a reservation before you go out. Also, it is difficult to make a reservation for sea side seats on the day, so please make a reservation call a week in advance.

Location: On the right side after the Moobenpic and the Kukai restaurant
Opening hours: 11: 00 ~ 14: 00, 17: 30 ~ 23: 00

Marina Seaview by Blue elephant

No. 4 is Marina Seaview by Blue elephant, which opened in late 2016. Located about a 3 minute walk from the Marina Mall and Island mall, a new shopping mall that opened in 2017.

It is located along the sea and has terrace seats so it is best to visit from dusk to night.

We mainly serve seafood and American food. The restaurant and the terrace have a very stylish atmosphere, and they have a lot of alcohol. It can also be used for dates and business entertainment.

The atmosphere is similar to abaca and scapeskydeck.

Location: Near Marina Mall
Opening hours: 11: 00 -23: 00


It is an Italian restaurant called Pigafetta in Robinson Market Area in Mactan. This caprese is really delicious! 320 P, but worth it.

Location: Within the Robinson Market Area on Mactan Island, near the Crowne Regency Hotel

gold mango

It is about a 5 minute walk from the Malibago Grill and Malibago Blue Water Hotel.

The price is a little expensive, but the atmosphere is good and the taste is good, so I highly recommend it. The pasta, salad and cocktail were about 1,000 pages per person.

We recommend this private room. There are about 4 rooms. I’d like to try lunch time on weekdays. I was allowed to sit here when I visited by myself.

I recommend this crab pasta! The rich cream was very delicious and I was satisfied. I recommend the salad with mango.

However, the salad is voluminous, so it’s too much for one person to eat it all, so be careful.

Location: Near the Malibago Grill, Malibago District

Tom yum goong is very hot. Thai food like Pad Thai is also delicious. The coconut curry in the picture is also superb. The Mactan shop is large inside, but it’s a popular shop, so if you have more than 4 people, it might be better to make a reservation early.

Filipino Cuisine

Maribago Grill

This is the Malibago Grill that is always featured in sightseeing books such as Rurubu! So there must be quite a lot of people who go there during their stay.

There are many cottages in the store, giving it a tropical atmosphere! Out of the rankings, there are a lot of mosquitoes, the food was served too late, and even though it was sold out, they didn’t tell me anything, and after I pressed them many times, I finally got to know a lot of bad points …。 I recommend mango salad, garlic shrimp and seafood chowder! Please try it!

Location: 3 minute walk from Bluewater or White Sands
Opening hours: 11: 00 ~ 10: 00

Fiesta Bay

It’s a Filipino restaurant a little further from the Moovenpick Hotel in Mactan. The seafood is also delicious. The store is spacious, but I have an impression that there are many group customers, so I recommend you to come early if it’s a holiday night.

The menu is also written in Japanese, and there is a menu that you can choose while looking at the picture using Ipad, so it is easy to imagine and I am grateful. The menu called Fiesta Sa Dagat is highly recommended, so please try it.

Location: Near the Moovenpick Hotel
Opening hours: 11: 30 ~ 14: 30, 17: 30 ~ 22: 00

Bucket Shrimps

It’s a restaurant in Cebu Yacht Club near Marina Mall. It is a restaurant where you put a piece of paper on the table, wear gloves and eat prawns with your hands. I recommend garlic butter flavor the most among 3 flavors. The night view is pretty beautiful at night, but you can eat shrimp with your hands, so it’s not suitable for a date.

Location: Cebu Yacht Club
Opening hours: 9: 00 ~ 23: 00


It is the most famous BBQ shop in the Philippines. There are three stores in Mactan. First, you choose ingredients and order how to cook and sauce. I’m a little concerned about hygiene, but please don’t worry because I won’t have a stomachache in particular. The ordering method is difficult, but please try it at least once like in the Philippines.

Location: Near Maribago Grill
Opening hours: 11: 00 ~ 23: 00

JOSE Filipino Kit

It’s a Philippine restaurant at the back of the yacht club near Marina Mall. It is a relatively new restaurant with the best view. There are many Philippine dishes that I am not familiar with, but it is easy to imagine because there are many dishes.

El Sueno Resort and Restaurant

El Sweño is a popular authentic Filipino restaurant run by Japanese. It is a cottage type with a tatami room, and Filipino and Japanese styles are mixed well.

This is a pasta using Moringa, a super food. You can get a lot of nutritious molinga in the Philippines, so please try it.

There are a wide range of dishes from Philippine BBQ dishes to paella. The food is about 130 to 550 pages. I think it’s better to divide them because there are a lot.

Place: Turn left at the intersection past McTan New Town, near Big Foot
Opening hours: 11: 00 ~ 14: 00, 17: 00 ~ 24: 00

Rib sHack

A new RIB SHACK at the SM supermarket in Tamiya, Mactan. It is also in SM Mall in the city.

I think it was around 150 pages with ribs and rice.

A restaurant specializing in rechon located near Marina Mall, about 5 minutes by car from Mactan Airport. There used to be one in Cebu, but now there is only Mactan shop. If you want to eat Lechon, I recommend this place!

You can order the retinon from 250 g. Spicy is popular, but it’s relatively spicy, so I recommend the original for those who don’t like it.

Location: Near Mactan Airport
Opening hours: 10: 00 ~ 22: 00



A hidden Italian restaurant near the Gaisanos Grand Mall. It’s small, so many people probably don’t know it.

The Italian owner makes this pizza from the dough! Moreover, the price is as low as 99 pages! The authentic pasta is made by the owner himself. The noodles and wine are also imported from Italy, and I recommend this Italian restaurant because they are particular about it but they are cheap.

A restaurant on the second floor of Island Central in a new mall near the bridge.

What Korean restaurants do you recommend? When I asked local residents and residents, many of them mentioned this.
