Since their opening day, Lantaw restaurant has been popular to many Cebuano customers since they are located in unique locations each with their own theme and style and served with Filipino dishes while enjoying the scenery around it. Though is my first Lantaw dining experience in their new and third (3rd) branch which is located along the coast of SRP (South Reclamation Project),
First impression of the place is that what you see is what you get. Dining along side of the coastline is one a great experience since it is one of the first restaurants established in the SRP area. Though we came here during noon time and the sun is on top of our heads, it is not really recommended for those who want a cool environment for eating in this time of the day.
Setup is like a traditional Filipino hut made mostly of wooden materials. The chairs and tables are comfortable enough though there are those that are similar to a sofa like chairs inside the place. There are also tables and chairs outside for those who to go near the sea just like the beach side, good for those who want to have an alcoholic drinks along the shoreline (Yes, they serve alcoholic drinks) but I recommend going their later in the afternoon.
I recommend you reserve before going there since there will be a lot of customers since they are still new and is a popular place for dining for groups of people.
For the food, they serve mainly Filipino Filipino dishes, nothing really special or any specialty for that matter. Their menu looks sleek and can browse your intended order since they divided it into categories whether you go for meat, seafoods, drinks and other dishes.
Lantaw SRP Cebu Restaurant
Drinks are placed in an empty jar of a mayonaise or something like that, they could have a least filled the entire jar for the drinks.
They also have thirsty Drinks, “Thirsty and Lantaw restaurant has the same owners/ stockholders?”
Not the best baked scallops honestly, the cheese and the ingredients are not properly blended and the texture is not that right. Serving size is also small for its prize. I recommend Kuya Js restaurant if you want tasty scallops.
Crispy Pata is good but the serving is not that big. If you want Crispy Pata alternatives you check it here.
Pancit is just so-so and common, nothing spectacular, I can find a better
Kinilaw is great, fish is marinated properly and has a soft texture when you eat it.
Calamares is also ok, again serving is small (maybe its not for those who want a full stomach dining)
About there food service, its baaaad *goat sound* , yes it’s very bad, I’m not sure if it is because they are still new or just plain chaotic in terms of taking orders, serving, and even the billing is all wrong. It almost destroys the entire dining experience. They need to overhaul their service process (not improve) because they will get a lot of irate customers and this will spread like wildfire whether in the word of mouth or in social networks like this one >:D.
