THE LANTAW FLOATING RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE
About three weeks ago, Our Team has decided to visit one of the most talked about places in Cebu , Lantaw as it is now popularly known, is truly one of the places that you should take your loved ones to. At the heart of Cordova, Lapulapu City, the magnificent views of the coastal area is a sure sight to see.
What made us decide to visit this place is not only the great venue but also the great food and service that they provide. If my sources are right the owner of this restaurant is the same person who owns the Moon Cafe chains in Cebu which is known for it's tasty menus and affordable rates.
Lantaw is a native word which means " to see" It is a restaurant situated on the sea of Cordova. It's interiors are made up of woods and other tropical materials. The Ambience is cozy and colorful. From afar it looks like a Big Hut but once you're inside, you'll be amazed of the interior and the views surrounding it.
We intentionally went there at four in the afternoon so we can witness the restaurant's transformation from sunlight to night time. We even got lucky enough to see airplanes! hahaha!
We we're confident enough that we are going to eat good food. I wouldn't say it was a five star quality meal but it was worth the price and worth the effort of going there.
The good thing is the foods they serve are native filipino dishes , not only will you be enticed , you will love eating them. Even the deserts are Filipino inspired.
For our meal , we had Monggo, shrimp, Lumpia, Lechon Kawali and another seafood which i forgot. hehehe. And for dessert we had bibingka topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Yummy!
But what really caught my attention was how they serve their courses. The Monggo Dish was served in a pot and amazingly our drinking glasses were from a Mayonaise bottle. I'd like to think it's the owners way of being resourceful that led to it. It's a good idea and thus showcases the filipinos ingenuity.
Overall, I had a delicious meal and to think I only spent 299 pesos for all these. Pretty cool huh?!
To top it all I had a great time. I had a lot of fun taking pictures of the magnificent views and of my friends' beautiful faces. It was also the perfect time to bond and just be ourselves, enjoying the sea, the food and the beautiful place. It is truly one destination you wouldn't want to miss.
And the Winning Moments...
Since I love taking pictures, I have chosen 5 best shots for me that captured life's priceless moments. They are cute, sweet and funny. A true memorabilia.
