“Excellente!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Location = for food lovers who don't own a private ride, I'm not so sure what jeepneys pass by into this place since it is located in the highlands part of Mandaue City...so for this, I give Oyster Bay an 8/10 rate.

Service = the crew who served our dish is Ramil and he patiently waited while we were thinking what to order. Thanks Ramil!

Ambiance = Excellent! I love the warm interior..the lighting effects and tropical decors are just so relaxing! it's like dining in an expensive Bali resto in the heart of Mandaue =)

Food = Surprisingly, they managed to transform a simple dish like the "palabok" into a "not-just-your-ordinary-meal". Each food is presented in a different way..it's just so great and sumptuous!

“Great restaurant, shame its not closer to town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Cebu. Sharks outside are a big hit with children. Good looking and comfortable to dine in. Always busy only gripe would be that it's in the wrong location. Very good and polite service. Surprisingly good value as well.

“A delightful seafood experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

The place is reminiscent of a beach setting dining feel. You can either choose to dine near the sharks as if you are on a beach atmosphere or pick the warmer ambiance in a conventional eating manner via table banquet. Must try is their chili calamares, baked scallops and fresh oysters with lemon. You are truly in for a gastronomic treat and seafood binge.

“Poor SERVICE. Wont go back then.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Me and my friend were about to celebrate valentines day, were waiting too long for the waiter to entertain us, plus, when were about to call the waiter he told us they cannot take the order for now because they dont have enough men to accommodate the needs of the customers. If they cant accommodate they should close for now. Or they should hire more people. Insteed, we went to jollibee for a date. That experience was hilarious and i dont wanna go there again.

“All thumbs Up!!! must go and dine.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2013

We had a dinner night last January and all thumps up! There is a room for two and there's also for groups and It's your choice If you like dining outside or inside with A/C. All the foods were great! A Filipino (I like their lechon kawali) , sea foods and pastas too since my bf like pasta! But to our surprise the serving is good for 4 ha ha ha esp. the perfect corn soup wow! can't even finish all....the price is reasonable!! Go and dine :-)
P.S. there's a small fish pond near the umbrella table outside and we saw 2 baby sharks there, very nice just missed bring our camera....
