We had to wait for an hour to be seated. It's over rated based on the recommendation from the people there. The moment we were seated we had to wait for another an hour (after too much complaints and follow ups already) for the food to served. Not to mention that we were informed of the non availability of their... More

How can you have a reservation and show up at the resto to only have the hostess tell you that it will be 45 minutes before we can be seated!! Are you serious! Why book a reservation for a particular time then if you cannot accommodate the party. The food always cold when I go there not sure why. The... More

I love the food. Loved the place, ambiance, etc. The waiters and waitresses are not that accommodating yet, I can understand since I know the're too busy. Some foods in the menu are a bit pricey but it's all worth it! I super liked the Crispy pata and shrimps. Will surely come back with my family sooner.

We traveled here from Macatan Island for Lunch. The restaurant was extremely busy but that made for interesting people watching. The food was authentic and delicious. The baked cheesy scallops were to die for! The halo halo is also delicious for dessert. I would recommend this place to any tourist wanting an authentic experience.

Waited too long for the food to be serve, maybe because a lot of guest are dining in that night. However, food is delicious and we're hungry. haha.

I heard so many good things about Lantaw. Sorry to say that other then being on the water, there was nothing good or great to say about this place. We arrived early so there was not many people there. No wait for a table. Seated almost immediately. The food was ok, nothing special. the service was barely ok. i had... More

Considered the time to wade through the traffic to get to this restaurant, the average quality of the food, the long wait to get a table, and the price, I do not think it is worth all the hassles to dine here. The view is great, though, but the toilets are filthy.

That's basically all it is. Good ambiance. Good view. Took us a while (an hour or so) from our hotel, Mövenpick but Filipino food is always worth it. Nothing too special though. Fiesta Bay Restaurant (right across Mövenpick) is still the best, in my opinion of course, when we talk about food taste and quality.

al fresco dining is always the best plus a natural painting of the sea and sky with reasonable prices of food.

Our experience at Lantaw was really awful. When we arrive there, we were given a small piece of paper to write our orders since it was a long waiting line for tables. We thought that it is a nice strategy, they will cook our orders ahead of time so that when we sit on our table, food is ready. But... More
