MARINA Seaview—which literally means “a specially designed dock for pleasure craft and small boats with the mesmerizing view of the sea”—reinvents itself by becoming an elegant urban dining place by the shore, showcasing local cuisine inspired by the island’s rich history and culture.
The place—with its elegant and impressive interiors, unique multi-leveled 350-seater al fresco resto-bar, and an elegant ballroom that can accommodate up to 150 persons—definitely promotes a Cebuano fine dining experience, minus the hefty price tag.
Located at MEPZ 1 in Lapu-Lapu City near the Cebu Yacht Club, Marina Seaview serves new entrees and a spruced up menu, perfect for foodies who are looking for something different yet familiar to the taste buds: Cordova Fried Eel, Kinilaw sa Buko, Pinaksiw Na Ulo ng Salmon, Pritong Lapu-lapu, Lechon Caray and Coconut Chili Seacrab, to name a few, alongside its delectable Western, Asian and Filipino dishes.
In the words of executive chef Marlou Almasco, the spick-and-span menu is dedicated to its guests, most especially tourists who want to indulge themselves with Cebuano dishes in a restaurant setting.
“We noticed that there weren’t many Cebuano restaurants in the area; an area where Cebuano dishes and delicacies should be highlighted more since a flock of tourists usually come here,” Almasco said.
Aside from that, Marina Seaview wants to provide an exquisite venue with delectable dishes and refreshments for everyone who wants to have a romantic date, family gathering, private events, happy hour with friends or even business meetings. Guests also get to enjoy live music from different genres performed by a band from Wednesdays to Sundays from 7 until 10 p.m.
Marina Seaview is open every day from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.
