The Abaca Resort in Cebu is just a stone’s throw away from the bigger resorts of Mactan Shangri-la Hotel and The Movenpick. Abaca is smaller (10 villas), hence more privacy is ensured. The price per night of stay in Abaca though, is not cheap at all (there is no private beach). So if you don’t wish to stay in their villas, you can still visit Abaca for the restaurant, which already gives you a glimpse of the petite resort itself.
Abaca Restaurant features the cuisine of Australian Chef, Wade Watson.
You can dine in the shade
Or be in the natural shades of the trees and the trellis, and lounge about with occasional slivers of sunlight
Abaca would be a perfect venue for a wedding reception or for that special occasion. It is without question, beautiful.
The restaurant is famous for their original flatbread pizzas. Set lunch priced at P 495 is quite a good deal, with soup, salad, and a portion of mains from one of the selections indicated
The salad starter is quite wonderful with blue cheese and fresh arugula and beets. Worth having seconds of– without a second thought.
The Abaca Flatbread pizza with Prosciutto di Parma is exquisite as promised. Very flavorful at the same time fresh and light.
The Lunch Set at P 495 is just right. The potato salad was delicious, although the homemade soup and the clams spaghetti were a bit lackluster in the taste department. Ask for salt and some chili flakes to taste. Portions are good though.
The dessert was perfect to complement the lunch– it was refreshing and light. You might want seconds especially if it’s a hot day.
