Shangril-La Mactan’s Cowrie Cove Restaurant: Food Review

Are you looking for a restaurant to spend your special days or holidays here in Cebu?  Cowrie Cove Restaurant in Shangri-La, Mactan is one of Cebu’s fine dining destinations wherein you can enjoy your food while savoring the view of the beach.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to sample their Festive menu along with my fellow members of Cebu Bloggers Society.  Here’s the menu that Cowrie Cove specifically prepared for us.

Here are the people I was with while enjoying the foods, small chitchats, the sea breeze, and the pleasant humid atmosphere at the sea view part of Cowrie Cove.

Food Ratings and Review for Each Dish Served

We officially started our dinner with this appetizer.

This is the Sauteed King Prawn with Orange Salad and Roasted Carrot.  The sauteed prawn is a 9, orange salad an 8, and the roasted baby carrot a 9.5.  I love everything about this appetizer.  The flavor is very light and citrusy.

Next is the soup.

For our soup, we had the Pan Seared Scallop in a Truffle  Scented Polenta Soup with Parmesan Tips. The pan seared scallop is an 8.  Overall rating for this soup is 7.

Next is our main course.

The is Surf and Turf.  This main course is composed of Roasted Beef Tenderloin Rossini, Rock Lobster, Strawberries, and Balsamic Vinegar.  Definitely a winner.  Roasted beef tenderloin is a 9 and Rock Lobster a 10.

And last, but not the least, the dessert.

To cap off our dinner, we had Oven Roasted Apple and Raisin Vanilla Ice cream.  The roasted apple is a 7 and the raisin vanilla ice cream a 7.5.

The ambiance inside and outside Cowrie Cove is an 8 and the food service is a 9.5.  Overall, I enjoyed our dinner and would love to go back there to try their other menus.

 

N.B.: I am not paid to write this review.  Cebu Bloggers Society is a non-profit organization that mainly aims to promote everything about Cebu.  Happy New Year!

I’ve never eaten so much scallops in my life. In Gigantes, scallops are of bloody abundance. Each of our meal (except breakfast) always comes with it and is cooked in various ways. Would never forget the small mountains of scallop shells scattered all over the island. Accommodation is too basic even for a budget traveller like me but they make it up by serving us very generous servings of seafoods every meal. #gigantesisland #seafood #scallops #seashells #giganteshideaway #foodporn
