What a perfect place to dine after a long day’s work than to pamper yourself with good food, good view, and a good company. My colleagues and I were invited by our good friends in Cebu office to this restaurant for dinner. So we arrived in the location around 6:30 PM, just the right time because guests surged in after...

I was veryexcited to tell my friends that Mr. A was a wonderful place for dinner because of the scenic view, only to feel DISAPPOINTED on my recent visit after my experience last year. We were there April 5, at 7:35 pm at the lower level restaurant. We were seated already and waited for the dining staff to come to... More

I was with my friend and her family when we're looking for a dining spot with a city view aside from Lantaw. It is an uphill restaurant in Busay with an unobstructed view of Cebu City. The food is great and the service crews are polite and efficient. :)

A bit up in the mountain you find this restaurant; with a great view over the city. However we went here late evening so we couldnt see it all. The service was quite average. It took a while for the beer arrive at the table and it wasnt even cold. Last.. the food was quite average aswell; nothing special.

This bar restaurant is on a hill overlooking Cebu City, about 5 minutes past the Marco Polo hotel. Try to get a table on the outdoor terrace, as the evening view is special. (There are indoor areas if it rains.) Pizzas and nice Filipino food are its main choices and reasonable in price. The pizzas are large and decent, though... More

A combination of good food and great prices is the reason why my family and I always make it a point to visit Mr. A's. The location is also a plus as you can see the whole of Cebu from here.

The best draw for this restaurant is its location. It has a spectacular view of Cebu City. Their pork barbecue is yummy but the other food they serve is satisfactory and nothing special. It is however an "institution " in Cebu having been there for several decades. Its one of those must visit chill places in Cebu.

We came here expecting to see the place as the same old one since we left Cebu for greener pastures. We had a lot of memories here and we expected nostalgia. Service was excellent played billiards and relaxed in their coffee shop. We then went up for a few drinks and of course good food. We definitely enjoyed every minute... More

Mr. A has probably one of the best views in the city. The location is perfect and overlooking Cebu City (with view of the ocean during daytime). The food is reasonably priced but mediocre in quality. The pizza quality is inconsistent. During the first time it was really good, then during our second and third visit the quality declined. The... More

Mr. A Bar & Restaurant (opened in 1997) together with Mr. A Cafe (2010) and Mr. A Pizzeria (2014) are all located in one area in Lower Busay Heights that gives you a panoramic view of Cebu. It's your "one-stop restaurant" that offers Filipino, International, American, and Italian cuisines to name a few. Mr. A is one of the pioneer indoor and outdoor restaurants in Busay which is known for "dining with a view" of the city skyline. It is perfect for intimate dates, family dinners, barkada outings, tourist groups, weddings, birthday parties, business meetings, and company parties as we have 3 big function rooms with built in karaoke systems and flat screen television units and 1 outdoor function room for private events, not including the open-air outdoor area which we are famously known for. There is enough parking to accomodate hundreds of customers at a time and soon tourist buses will be able to go up to the main restaurant.
