Dining at the Gazebo and Observatory

The Gazebo

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu, is a haven for discerning diners. In addition to its seven bars and restaurants, the resort now offers two alternative dining venues: the Gazebo and the Observatory.

Guests enjoy an unforgettable experience in the luxury of these two dining pavilions. The Observatory is a short walk from the lively Waves Bar and Cowrie Cove, while the Gazebo rests on a more secluded breakwater. Both located by the sea, they offer panoramic vistas of starlit skies and the clear blue waters of the Mactan channel.

Apart from the unparalleled views, a highlight of the experience is the cuisine. Gazebo’s menus are inspired by the Italian dishes created by Chef Marco Ghezzi, who brings a distinctly modern touch to traditional classics. The selections reflect a wide range of regional Italian specialties and include Carre d’agnello e polenta grigliata e caponata di verdure e rosmarino (Lamb rack on grilled polenta, ratatouille of vegetables with rosemary and roasted garlic gravy) and Trio di panna cotta (Chocolate, vanilla and praline panna cotta). 

Diners who choose the Observatory will be treated to menus from Executive Sous Chef Patrick Buttgereit. Chef Patrick draws upon a wealth of global experience to create his signature East-West fusion, showcased in such dishes as the Kilawin Tanguige (Filipino-style fresh raw fish in vinegar, pomelo, coriander, chili pepper and chopped onion) and the Seafood Platter, piled high with lobster, prawn, mussel, clam and served with special Cowrie Cove dipping sauces.

The Gazebo and the Observatory have become preferred venues for intimate celebrations and proposals. Romantic dinner packages include exclusive use of the venue, a bottle of sparkling wine, a special floral arrangement, and a personal butler to complete a memorable evening.
