Had dinner here on a quiet Wednesday night . Appetizers were the squid and octopus , both ok perhaps a bit rich for my taste . The main courses were excellent ; the pork belly and grouper crusted with Guyere . Both highly recommended ....We liked the Cabernet offered in the glass but the Malbec not so much . Service was very good and the space had a really great vibe and played great musicMore

We went there for dinner last night and the place has a nice cozy ambience. All the food we ordered were good. Very innovative dishes and well presented. The cocktails need improvement, though. Overall, it's a must visit when in Cebu.

I'd been saying for a long time I wanted to try the P&P, and my only regret is I didn't go sooner. Service from the staff was excellent. Attention to detail was most impressive. Quality of the food was exceptional. Pork Belly and Banoffee soufflé...were to die for. The table of 5 certainly did not leave disappointed.More

Best restaurant in Cebu hands down. Drinks were well mixed, I recommend the “dill or no dill” cocktail. Portions were just right and mouthwateringly delicious. The best part was the well trained staff who take their job very seriously!

As an Englishman with a son married to a Filipina living in Cebu, we enjoyed our trip to the restaurant. Only iffy note was that the warm food was served on cold plates, making the food quickly cold. A schoolboy error. Pity. I had a...word with the chef in charge.More

The restaurant is nice, I like the ambience. It was our first visit and we wanted a fast yummy lunch. Our order was simple, 1 Perrier water, Jamon y manchego croquettes and a 500 gr Rib eye for sharing. Very disappointing meat, can t say...anything positive of that plate for 4500 php of dry, chewy steak... Total 5654 for a quite tasteless meal. The croquettes were good...More

Didnt know where to dine in Cebu city with office friends so checked the tripadvisor best restaurants list and made a reservation with Pig and Palm. Food was great, from starters to dessert. The pork belly main dish was a hit for my friends and...my wife and I loved the grouper and salmon dishes. The chocolate molleauex with ice cream was also a hit. Portions was just right though a bit pricey. Overall, we had a great dining experience and will definitely come back.More

Despite the mixed reviews, my fiancé and I decided to try Pig & Palm. A previous reviewer correctly described the Rib Eye, poor quality beef with excessive gristle. For $90, a big disappointment - nothing like the menu picture. The linguine nero was just as...sad, with two small bits of overcooked lobster, the size of a matchbook. The rest of the seafood was just as rubbery. The pasta was full of either sand, or crushed shell fragments, making it inedible. The brioche appetizer was terrific, as was the staff and the ambiance. Another reviewer suggested poor reviews stem from guests unfamiliar with fine dining. I’ve lived, and dined, from L.A. to NYC, from London to Vienna, and exquisite places in between. Pig & Palm May top Cebu, but manage your expectations, it’s likely to underwhelm. I doubt we’ll go back, but if we did, I’d choose something simple, like the pulled pork, gnocchi, or appetizers and dessert, anything that’s reasonably priced and hard to mess up. Good luck.More

Pig & Palm was supposedly highly rated as per Tripadvisor. We made a reservation for 6 and was provided with a private room. The staff does not speak English nor Tagalog well. Many still converse in Bisaya even though we informed them we cannot speak...nor comprehend the dialect. We ordered beef sliders as starter but the server forgot the order. The food was okay but not that great. The desserts were good though.More

We had a private restaurant experience at Pig & Palm- due to the fact that so little are dining out these days! We had the restaurant all to our selves and the food was spectacular- treated ourselves to the beetroot, goat cheese and walnut salad,...and had the roasted grouper and famous confit pork belly. Loved the grouper which was so light, fresh and the crispy texture on top was tantalizingly delicious. Dessert- I wish we could do it all over again which was the chocolate moelleux with milk foam and salted caramel ice cream! So good!More
