Ordered several items of the menu and not very impressed. The rice and seafood mixture had very little seafood, the noodles weren't didn't have much flavor and overall everything was just so so. The decor was nice!

This place used to be great in the old days. People come here to relax, have meetings, go swimming, and have relaxing fun. They had a great, competent staff, the ambiance was great, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filled the air. Ever since the new management took over, this place went down hill. AMBIANCE Despite recent renovations, the place... More

Even though it has been a while since my then fiancée and a few friends ate here I do remember the atmosphere and the food both being excellent ... Priced a little higher than other similar restaurants in the ZC area but given the locale and ambiance of the hotel/restaurant setting it is really understandable.

I first visited Lantaka in 1986 and have stayed there countless times. Alas, I shall not be returning. The hotel has been extensivly remodelled. But what a curates egg. The lobby is no longer the open friendly place as before. It is now very gloomy and uninviting. The Cafe has been relocated. so no more nice views out to sea.... More

The entree options of the resto are good but the star really is dessert! Order anything you like displayed and you'll love it. The resto is known for brazo de mercedes and halo halo. Resto ambiance is also nice. Small but you feel there is a sense of space and cool vibe.

If you're visiting Zamboanga city, stay away from this hotel and the restaurant. Rooms are old, dusty and don't make me start about the hallways, its creepy and dark. Like some freaky horror movie. The restaurant is one of the worst in the city, they're just lucky to be beside the beach/wharf. Food is a rarely a hit, always a... More
