The location of this restaurant is just amazing and the staff very friendly and attentive. We ate there twice while staying at the resort. The restaurant menu only offers seafood, nothing else. They may offer other dishes on request but we didn't bother as we were happy to eat seafood.
The first night we ordered fresh grouper and a seafood platter. The grouper was fresh and delicious, however, the seafood platter was disappointing. The calamari was rubbery and the rest overcooked.
The second night we ate there the food was a lot better but the prawns on their signature prawn skewer dish were still a bit over cooked. The crab cakes and soup starter were both delicious however.
Our overall experience was still very good due to the staff, service and location.

We had our brazillian churrasco at Ibiza on our first night in Movenpick, love the food, live performances from their inhouse group and pop beats by DJ. We really had a great night at Ibiza, such moment to remember during our trip in Cebu.
