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!
