Filipino restaurants are always at their best in Cebu just like Hukad sa Golden Cowrie. For our recent trip, I’m privileged enough to have had tried another authentic Filipino cuisine at Fiesta Bay Asian Seafood Restaurant. Now here’s our top Fiesta Bay picks!
The food was great, great, great from starters to main course to dessert! The fresh lumpia was nutty which I love, the kinilaw‘s tangy taste was just so right, the baked scallops were creamy, the sinigang was truly asim-kilig, my fave chicken pandan was sarap to the bones, and the star of the table crispy pata was so namnam! However, the garlic steak appeared not so good to my taste buds and the mini doughnuts were a bit oily. But all in, I give the total package a very high 9.9 for the chicken and pork pata bones me and Ruth savored!
The ambiance of the place is also commendable for big groups of people. There’s plenty of room for every family, barkada, and workmates. And the best thing that we love most of the resto is their personalized service. An attendant in waiting is assigned for each table who is very sensitive to all your needs. From big needs like taking your photos (for my case) to small needs like assisting you as you take your seat, taking care of your belongings so you can eat properly, passing the tissue holder around, and cleaning your mess on the table right away. And the biggest bonus, Archo coughed and then came suddenly the hot water with lemon. Cherry Ann said that her head was aching and then came instantly the aspirin. Finally, together with the whole staff, a surprise birthday song and a birthday cupcake were given to Cherry Ann! That’s just how sweet our waiter Renneth was! Catering to our needs even if it’s already beyond the scope of his job. Thank you so much for taking so much care of us, Renneth! 🙂
I definitely wanna go back to Fiesta Bay Asian Seafood Restaurant to have a taste of their lobsters someday! So if by chance you’re gonna visit Cebu, drop by at Fiesta Bay along Punta Engaῆo Road, Mactan Island. It is just right across Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu if in case you’ll get lost.
