Lantaw SRP Opens to the Public since Typhoon Odette

You can now visit the iconic restaurant known as Lantaw SRP at IL Corso.

Typhoon Odette will go down in history as one of the worst storms to hit Cebu. Residents endured a scarcity of water and electricity for several weeks, and more than a few tourist spots and restaurants closed down to repair the significant damage they sustained during the typhoon. One of these is the iconic Cebu restaurant known as Lantaw SRP.

Famous for its take on Filipino cuisine, the restaurant ended up relocating to IL Corso, one of the newest lifestyle malls on the island, bringing in a more modern aesthetic and design, all while maintaining its reliable culinary offerings.

Like its other branches, the restaurant offers a fresh al fresco dining experience.

Located on the north side of IL Corso, this contemporary al fresco dining establishment offers a breathtaking view of the sea. The fresh breeze and atmosphere definitely add to the experience, making every meal more satisfying and worthwhile.

With its relaxing outdoor ambiance and impressive menu of native dishes, Lantaw has become a go-to traditional Filipino restaurant where you can dine and hang out with friends and loved ones.

Lantaw is definitely one of the most breathtaking fine dining restaurants in Cebu.

DINING BY THE SEA AT LANTAW SRP

The restaurant has been known to have a native design, with local materials used to give it a refreshing island vibe. The open air also makes for a soothing experience as you enjoy their mouthwatering food.

The most noticeable area of the restaurant is the stunning boardwalk. With a view of IL Corso, the ocean, and even the Cordova-Cebu bridge, it’s basically the icing on top of the cake that is sure to complete your visit at Lantaw.

There are a couple of tables outside the restaurant that offer some much-needed privacy for couples who are on a date or families and barkadas who are looking forward to spending some quality time together.

The iconic light green pillows are still present, adding color and personality to the establishment. There are also a variety of tables and chairs available that can cater to small and large gatherings.

At night, the railings at the boardwalk light up the otherwise dim area. It is also the best time to take pictures of the place as the lights add to the spectacular ambiance and view.

FILIPINO CUISINE

A spread of Filipino cuisine favorites

Lantaw is an iconic Filipino cuisine restaurant that serves traditional Filipino dishes.

Aside from its breathtaking aesthetics, the restaurant provides a menu of irresistible foods, ranging from light starters to savory spreads.

Sisig

To start off, you can order a plate of Sisig. This famous grilled pork meal is made up of pig ears and jowls, which may seem weird to some, but it has long been a go-to appetizer among many Filipino meals and food trips. 

The meat is chewy and easy to eat, while the chilis and onions give it a spicy kick. A platter of plain rice will complement this local favorite. 

Crispy Pata

Another meal you should try is their Crispy Pata. It is essentially pig’s foot that is deep-fried to perfection – mostly known for its juicy meat and crunchy exterior, almost like an upper-class version of the popular Chicharon. The enormous portions make it ideal to share with a group. 

Next up is their Lechon Kawali, another delicious deep-fried dish, but this time, it consists of pork belly slabs. 

Their plate of Garlic Buttered Shrimps is also very delicious if you can get past the arduous peeling process. 

Finally, wash it all down with a pitcher of Cordova Coolers. Enjoying this sweet amalgamation of different fruits is the perfect way to finish up a hefty and satisfying meal.

Despite opening its doors to the public just recently, Lantaw SRP has already been getting a lot of buzz, with dozens of customers waiting in line outside the restaurant. It’s best to come early so you can get a table just in time for lunch or dinner.

With its long list of native favorites and breathtaking views, this restaurant is definitely worth adding to your list of go-to places for a dining experience like no other.
