La Vie Parisienne: A French Dining Experience in Cebu City

La Vie Parisienne takes inspiration from French bistros for a sophisticated dining experience.

Fine dining should not be limited to sitting at a table and waiting for a full-course meal to be served. Some restaurants can offer a fun, one-of-a-kind experience to stand out in the compelling culinary industry.

That is what La Vie Parisienne plans to accomplish with its Parisian ambiance, paired with a self-service system to create a unique dining experience – perfect for dinner dates, family gatherings, and even casual tête-à-têtes

The dazzling ambiance makes it one of the best fine dining restaurants in Cebu.

Your dining experience at this French restaurant will be more than satisfying for your palette, as it is also entertaining.

A SOPHISTICATED PARISIAN RESTAURANT

The homey setup adds to the appeal of this French restaurant.

La Vie Parisienne uses its French-bistro-inspired ambiance to create a soothing and solemn atmosphere. The vintage architecture gives it a homey but foreign vibe.

Artificial plants and wooden arches give its interiors a calm environment for customers who wish to dine inside. The dome-shaped structure also stands out for its visually appealing aesthetic.

The stunning look has made it a go-to place for prenuptial photoshoots, using its traditional design as a romantic backdrop for couples. 

The wine cellar is one of the more picturesque locations in the restaurant. Walking along the short aisle will feel like you’re being transported to a local wine shop in Paris, as classical French opera music plays in the background. 

The restaurant also has an al fresco dining area filled with tents and white domes for customers to take shelter. The spacious area is a joy to walk around in, with the colorful lighting turning the restaurant into one of the most impressive fine dining restaurants in Cebu. 

WHAT TO TRY AT LA VIE PARISIENNE

Don’t know where to get wine in Cebu? Drop by La Vie and browse their selection of wines!

If you don’t know where to get wine in Cebu, La Vie Parisienne is a good start. The wine room isn’t the only place to find them, since you can also pick bottles already stationed across from the bakery right by the entrance.

You can choose from various types, like Merlot, Moscato, or Chardonnay, but don’t fret if you don’t know which one to get. You can always ask the employees for recommendations.

You can even ask them based on your budget since they have everything from entry-level to luxury brands.

If wine isn’t your thing, you might also be interested in trying craft beer and cocktails at Le Bar Rose, the pink house across from the restaurant.

As you enter the restaurant, you can smell the French pastries baking in the oven. You can pick out freshly baked snacks like croissants, caneles, and madeleines and pair them with your chosen wine.

The restaurant also has several options for pizzas, starting with the simple but ever-iconic Margherita. This Italian classic is considered the classic Neopolitan pizza and, for some, the go-to flavor.

Pizza Margherita, named after the Queen of Italy, is famous for its simple ingredients. It’s a pizza with only cheese and marinara sauce, topped with fresh greens. 

Pizza at the La Vie Parisienne

Their best seller is La Vie Pizza, which has smoked bacon, onions, goat cheese, and mozzarella.

You can order Filipino-French fusion dishes as well, such as barbecue skewers made from different cuts of meats and sausages. Their pasta is a much more interesting choice for a meal, though. 

Their make-your-own-pasta system allows customers to choose a specific type of pasta together with its sauce and toppings. You can choose from pasta like Fettucini and Spaghetti and top them with sauces like Pesto or Bolognese.

For dessert, you can purchase a cup of Gelato. This ice cream-like dessert comes in various flavors to satisfy your cravings and end the night on a sweet note.

France may be far from the Philippines, but La Vie Parisienne lets you experience the local culture and cuisine without having to purchase a plane ticket.

The fine dining experience has made it a go-to Cebu nightlife spot for meaningful conversations under the moonlight.

Its relaxing ambiance helps elevate the restaurant into more than just a fine dining restaurant. You’ll find the enjoyment of walking through this French-bistro-inspired establishment just as worthwhile.
