Where to Eat in Metro Cebu

Cebu's cosmopolitan atmosphere is reflected in its diverse range of dining options. Be it local food, continental, fusion, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, or Italian restaurants; a variety of different flavors from around the world can be found on most streets. Once in Cebu, you should not miss trying the dish it is famous for – lechon (roast suckling pig). Worldwide fast food chains also feature in the major malls, such as, SM City, Ayala Centre and IT Park. Below is a list of our recommended restaurants in Cebu City.
