There are a number of restaurants in Dumaguete that have been here for quite a number of years. But somehow, I only recently realised that I wasn’t sure if I’d been to them before or not. 128514 A result of pre-addictive social media I guess. Suffice it to say, Casablanca is one of them, and that notion was quickly remedied with consecutive visits within a span of 2 weeks! 128556

The first of these 2 visits was on a Sunday morning. The next was during the family-is-visiting-so-take-them-out-to-eat-everyday week, where we had a huge dinner setting set up. An entirely different atmosphere for both.

For the breakfast:
There were choices for lunch specials already on the board (this was around 10-1030am) and the chef recommended we try one so we ordered the Tuna Pasta Italian-Style (Mushroom and Olive in Rich Tomato Sauce) to share. Also ordered breakfast meals each since it was still too early to order anything heavy.

For the dinner:
We all ordered our own dishes, and I ended up ordering the Casablanca Schnitzel: Breaded and fried XXL pork tenderloin with lemon and parsley potatoes (5th photo). Boy, was it all meat. 128514 Was surprised when my order came and they handed me my plate. There was barely no carbs on it - and I’m a carbs kinda gal! It tasted good, though I was quite overwhelmed by the meat. Next time, I’d definitely half this with someone and get a rice platter.

Also, since I was beside a whole lot of people with a whole lot of good-looking orders, I took note of a couple of others.

Such as:
➡️Pork liver Berlin style (liver with fried appled onion) [3rd photo]
➡️ Hunter's Platter: Pork tenderloin, chicken breast, and German sausage with mushroom sauce and pan fried potatoes. [4th photo]
➡️ Pumpkin Soup: we ordered pumpkin soup for the whole table. It was unbelievably delicious. Not sure if it was the hunger or the fatigue talking, but I left nothing in my bowl.

Service:
For both services, staff were okay. They could use some improvement, but they were generally okay. Staff were friendly and prompt with orders.

Price:
Casablanca tends to lean on the more expensive side of Dumaguete cuisine, though not extremely expensive. This is probably because the food is generally not Philippine-based cuisine, it’s more Western/Mediterranean/European. I assume the quality of products and ingredients is also better, just because the owner is just more particular. 128556

Location:
Casablanca is located on Rizal Boulevard, so you get an (almost) unblocked view of the sea. There’s parking on the frontage (thank goodness!) though outside seating is a little cramped. The seating on the inside is not too large though, which is okay, as it makes the place feel a bit cozier.

Very delicious dishes! Super nice ambience and a very good spot to drink and dine at night. I became friends with the chef and met most of the usual foreign customer who lives there. So maybe that's another good thing I'm served with the best dishes!

We met a small group of friends today for lunch. We had 3 recommended appetizers plus our separate meals. The sashimi style tuna appetizer was absolutely melt in you mouth delicious and seasoned to perfection. Everything was enjoyed to the maximum by all. We could not find fault with one thing even if we tried. The service was excellent. One of the best place in Dumaguete for fine dining.
