It is always fun to visit Cebu as it is turning into a foodie destination with new concepts opening here and there. But there are a few classics that I missed out from my previous trips and I made sure that I’d drop by a few of them during my last Cebu visit. And for R’s late birthday celebration, we opted to have lunch at Circa 1900.

Hello, Circa 1900!

We were greeted by beautiful two ancestral homes (turned dining halls) as soon as we entered the restaurant's huge compound.

Unfortunately, Circa 1900 was closed when we visited and will be closed throughout our stay in Cebu. On the bright side, its tapas restaurant, Cicada was open and we could dine there instead.

Though I was a bit heartbroken for not being able to sample the delightful dishes of Circa 1900, spotting Cicada’s Roast Tomato Soup (PHP125) and Spice Rubbed Baby Back Pork Ribs with Roast Corn and Potato Wedges (PHP485) turned my frown upside down.

While waiting for our food, I roamed around the restaurant and noticed that there’s a bar and pool a few steps away from the dining area. We found out that guests could actually take a dip in the pool for a small fee. Quite weird but I guess it works as there were several kids splashing around when we passed by it.

Soon, our refreshing drinks Watermelon and Mint Frappe (PHP95) and Banana Mango Apple Whip (PHP95) were served.

My Banana Mango Apple Whip was perfect to beat the endless summer heat. It was sweet yet still thirst quenching.

I was a bit iffy to try R’s Watermelon and Mint Frappe at first as I wasn’t sure if it’ll go well together but it was a lot better than my drink! It was super refreshing and the type that I could have gallons of! I loved its light yet sweet taste with that cool kick from mint made it unforgettable!

Our huge bowl of tomato soup was served next with herb focaccia bread on the side.

It was love at first slurp! The thick, tangy and creamy soup was heavenly! I fell for its rich taste which somehow reminded me of spaghetti tomato sauce sans meatballs.

Cicada’s bestselling baby back ribs was huge and bang for the buck! One order is good for at least two.

We feasted on succulent meat glazed with sweet and mildly spiced sauce topped with shredded veggies with corn and potato wedges on the side.

As I munched on the flavorful baby back ribs, R went crazy with the beautifully spiced wedges.

We were hoping to get a small pastry for dessert but we were too full already that we had to bill out after our main dish.

Overall, it was a lovely meal. With Cicada's delightful dishes, restaurant’s ambiance and prompt service, I’d definitely visit again!

I and my friend went to Circa 1900 to have our lunch. The place is indeed beautiful. They did very well in preserving the old house. It may be old but still classy. The place is perfect for get-together and other events.

We ordered triple dip tortillas (Php 250), pork belly with mashed potato (Php 350), chicken bringhe with paella (Php 295), fresh juice watermelon (Php 95) and kamias shake (Php 95). Foods are cooked very well. It's a little bit pricey but the food is worth it.

They've got nice interiors, good food, and friendly staffs.

This restaurant owned by my previous employer which happens to be a place of residence is home to delectable cuisines - a fusion of Filipino and other International gastronomic goodness.

It looks kinda eerie though especially the path going to the restroom and even while inside the toilet. Hahaha. Probably because it used to be a Spanish abode where most furnitures and even the house itself is preserved to keep that old feel.

Staffs are attentive and helpful, a picture of highly trained crew ready to serve the quickest way possible.

And the food whew! i love the Turmeric Vegetable Paella Cake, it was really delish. Also made my taste buds happy is their malunggay potato and Camote gnocchi balls. Nom Nom.

I loved it!

The place is nostalgic! Great for intimate dinner with your special someone. Service is good and the food is okay. But more importantly, the price is affordable.

Since I am a fan of building restoration, I like this place. The ambiance is cozy and relaxing. The food was delicious. What the management needs to improve is the service. It took us so long to get our orders. Nonetheless, it was a gastronomical experience.

A visit to Circa 1900 is one gastronomically exciting experience! The place is an old house converted into this beautiful restaurant. Once at the foot of the staircase leading to the main dining hall, you are greeted warmly by the hostess (and asked if you have many any reservations -- at this point, you can tell one must have a reservation to dine, as the place is always full). You are then led up, and to your table. Once seated, a server introduces himself and briefs you about their menu. The food on the menu is undeniably unique in a very familiar and classic way.

My sister (aka eating buddy) and I ordered Asian Pancake Rolls made with slow-cooked orange tamarind duck and topped with tofu fries. This was so delicious, my sister and I wanted seconds. I ordered one of their best sellers, Chicken Bringhe, and Tumeric & Vegetable Paella Cake with Coconut & Raisins. It was one of the most delicious chicken dishes I've had in a long time. The chicken strips were cooked perfectly! The paella cake was made with sticky rice and had this unique texture; it was very delicious! The sauce and the sprouts also added to the flavor of the dish. It was perfect! My sister had steak - by the looks of it, I believe she loved it!

Ambience was lovely. Food was amaze balls. Service was great. I will surely be back soon to try out more of their unique dishes (e.g. Garlic Prawns, Spanish Chorizo & Chili Tomato Olive Oil; Crunchy Slow Roast Pork Belly; Chicken simmered in Cocodobo Sauce)!

This place is jus awesome! the service was great and the ambience of the place is breathetaking. One of the managers is my friend and he told us that the place was once hit by a bomb, but luckily no one died. It was a home to a wealthy cebuano but fled the place when the japs came and turned it into one of their HQs here in cebu. Enuf of history lets talk about food. i didnt have photos of the food(boneless porkloin chops,veg paella cake,salad) that our friends had, but i can certainly say theirs also tasted good(sharing wid friends). In this pic, me n my partner had Crunchy slow roast pork belly and chicken simmered in cocodobo sauce. I can assure u, u'll definitely love it!!! Love love love it! -i sound feminine now lol...Downside is its a bit pricey like 300-500 per plate, but its worth it!
