The7 Food: 7 Suggestions for that Special Date Night

7 Places to Eat in Cebu for date night

With so many new restaurants popping up in the city, it takes us forever to decide where to eat on date nights. But when it comes to special occasions (my husband and I recently celebrated our second wedding anniversary), we stick with tried and tested favorites. Here's our go-to list:

1.) Cowrie Cove

Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa, Punta Engano Road, Mactan

A restaurant where you can dine al fresco with a sweeping view of the ocean. What could be more romantic than that? Reserve the Observatory for a special private and secluded dinner on top of rocks breaking water and maybe pop the question? We've heard of couples getting engaged there ;)

2.) Olio

Crossroads, Gov. Cuenco Ave., Banilad

There's something about white tablecloths and romantic lighting that set the ambiance for a great date. We also love how this restaurant has equally delicious steak and seafood offerings on the menu. We keep coming back for the Risotto Lobster & US Scallops with parmesan flakes, yum!

3.) Anzani

Nivel HIlls, Lahug, Cebu City

We love the interiors and the cozy but classy setting of this old favorite. The complimentary freshly-baked bread served in ceramic pots will start out your dinner beautifully. If you have a hard time choosing from all the delicious sounding meals on the menu, they have "Chef Suggestions Dinner Set Menus" served with apertif and wine per course. You can also close out your date with a nightcap at the adjacent Bellini b
