Great place to relax and unwind... Though a little expensive when compared with prices here in cebu. A lot of wines choices to choose from (if you love wines)! 🤗

Capuccino's good, cinnamony but served not that hot. Their chocolate chip cookie's super hard! You'll have a hard time even cutting it in half with your hands. I treated it as if it was a biscotti, dipped it first with my coffee before eating it. 128522

If you're looking for the best Angus tapa in Cebu, this place definitely got it! It's as good as the tapa served in Mr. Jones (Greenbelt) and Museum Cafe.I always pair it with TWG's Paris Singapore tea to cut off the tapa's rich taste. Perfect power breakfast! :)

Wow look at that sausages yum yum. Drop by tinderbox to buy some cold cuts and sausages. This place reminds me of Santis in manila. They also have cheese, steaks, cakes and other imported products. On the other side of the room they have a dinning area and wine area. Heard their pizza are good gotta try that next time. 128522

Tried a new pizza today! We usually have the Gruyere and Mushroom pizza but since they didn't have the mushrooms, we HAD to try something new.

So we got the Campione which is a hand made pizza topped with Angus beef strips, garlic chips and poached egg.

The pizza looked good, dough was cooked just right. We had the thin crust which at times gets too crispy? The beef was soft and chips were golden brown. But maybe I was too used to the strong flavor of our usual pizza that this new combination didn't quite satusfy my tongue.

I think it lacked something. So we asked for chili oil to add on. It tasted a bit better but I wouldn't order this pizza again if I had to choose between this and our usual.

Still rated them a 4 star since the pasta dishes were all good! Though the nachos were served without the jalapeños, they gladly gave me sliced jalapeños when I asked for them. 128077128077 for service!

The Tinderbox is definitely among my most favorite places in Cebu. Classy, cool vibe is not hard to miss -- the place is always filled with people who drives Prosches, Benzes, Bimmers, Ferraris... and that's for good reason! This is the place that has the best of the best!

The Tindebox is a restaurant and deli / gourmet market at the same time! They have the freshest imported vegetables and the best sausages and cheese selections in the city. You must have a try of their Manchego cheese -- it's been my favorite for the past 12 years! Their Hungarian Sausage with cheese is also very good, and is a breakfast favorite.

The Tinderbox also serves really good pizza. For the longest time, Tutti di Mare (seafood) pizza has always been my family's favorite pizza in Tinderbox. Now that it's not on the menu, only those who know know that this pizza can still be ordered on special request, as long as they have the ingredients. Their Meaty Squares, also not in the menu, are also so so soooo good!

Today, my sister ordered their Beef Salpicao and I had my favorite Tartufo Pasta. Of course, these were delicious. My sister says they have the best salpicao in town! And the Tartufo pasta has the most scrumptious wild mushrooms I've had in any pasta dish.

For dessert, ceme brûlée all the way! And for the past 15 years, their Baklava has been a favorite.

Always a great time at Tinderbox. Great service and great food.

Had our New Year's Eve dinner here as we usually do every year. This time we tried their new Italian Cheese and tomato fondue (on pic). It was another take on the usual cheese fondue, it had tomato and something else added to it. If my brother were to describe it, it tasted like pizza! Lol!

Still maintaining their quality ingredients though they had some changes that we didn't like. Seafood chowder had less sea food and more carrots and corn. For the Gruyere and mushroom pizza, they used their own dough which was a bit tougher than the premade one they used before.

Overall, just -1127775 since service was very good and most of our orders tasted great!

Have a great New Year everyone! 9786

I've been here many times but it's the first time I tried their Truffle Cream pasta sooo I'm giving this review! Lol.

The pasta had that "earthy" taste, quoting the server who suggested us this dish (thank you hehe). I can't really describe the taste but I really like it! A must-try!

I also recommend the Mushroom and Gruyere pizza (have the poached egg well done and the crust thin... Ask for their chili oil too!) and the Roastie tortilla. For the drinks, I usually have their Vanilla milkshake. Try their Yogurt shakes, it's good too!

Expect the price to be a bit expensive since they use imported ingredients. Oh and they also have a deli just beside the dining area.

Birthday dinner of a friend in Cebu. Ribs were soft and tender, and the pizza was just.. Indescribably delicious! Pasta was your regular seafood marinara.
