I would not have eaten here except that my husband had been to Anton's several times before and had liked the sizzling gambas so we decided to try it. This place would not pass muster in the US (although that is true of many restaurants in Cebu). The place looks particularly unclean. It needs a deep scrub and some paint for sure. They also need to chase the cats away from the kitchen. It is open to the outside and they were on every surface I could see. It is waterfront and the view of the bridge and the Cebu yacht club is beautiful. True, there is some squatter karaoke gong on, but it is charming and very "Cebu". The food is only ok. It didn't make us sick but the gambas was very lacking in shrimp, which, according to my husband, was not the case in the past. The flavor was fine and the garlic rice was actually good. The price was high for what you got and we were one of only two parties in the restaurant on a Saturday night. I am not sure how they stay in business.

It seemed like a broom, mop or fresh paint would have killed them. Walking down to the restaurant from the highway, you have to pass people urinating in the street. One woman and one man on the 5 minute walk to the restaurant.

this place was great like a decade ago but now....it sucks! Price are way to high, you'd expect great foods for a high price but its not! Sidewalk foods are way much tastier than theirs. And that's not the worst thing yet, after eating the grilled seafood with mango salsa, my tummy grumble that sent me straight to the toilet! And the place stinks, especially if its low tide you can see all the garbage floating etc., its like eating inside the toilet, the view near the place are colony of squatter dwellers that gives you the ambiance (reality) of a third world country.

Yeah of course the meals especially the seafoods are excellent. A bit to much expensive but o.k. But who like to eat, if the water which is surrounding the restaurant smells like a sink, and some neighbors playing crappy loud Karaoke. An incredible view as you can see at the picture, but really some evenings the surroundings will kill your mood to have a dinner especially at low tides.
