We ordered zubuchon, lechon kawali, fish skin with kilawin, ginataang langka and lumpiang ubod. Everything was excellent. The zubuchon was very tasty. The lady that served us was very nice and accommodating. The restaurant was clean and cool. We also had the citrus ice tea...and tamarind shake. Both drinks were refreshing and true to taste. What a great Cebu lechon experience.More

We have eaten at the SM Seaside location multiple times. The menu is diverse and appealing. The food is consistently good. The serving sizes are generous. The prices are quite reasonable. The staff are always thoughtful, attentive and friendly. We often look for alternative restaurants...at the mall but, we keep deciding to revisit Zubuchon.More

Good brand, good food but not the right people serving in cebu seaside. Worst service. Asked for the service water and waited for more than 15 mins after 3 follow ups and complained already.

Twice disappointed so never again. I love Lechon and I really love cebu lechon. But the only lechon place in SM Seaside Cebu City is Zubochon. First time I ate here is I got disappointed because the lechon skin like a rubber and it’s didn’t...taste great good thing I ordered other food in the menu which was not authentic cebu I told the manager or supervisor when I was paying the bill why the lechon taste horrible taste old she apologies and told me she could heat it up and toast the skin as a take out I decline because it was not really good. Today was traffic decided to eat dinner at SM seaside and yes I gave Zubochon with my staff a native Cebuano. There was 1 table eating so I’m like ok let’s order. I ask for boneless lechon and the supervisor asked the kitchen if they have boneless so that’s weird. Take note I ordered only lechon and plane rice and water just to give a final try if it’s really good. It taste was bland so we tried to put a lot of chili vinegar (awesome vinegar) on our rice. But all out I got really disappointed. I’m not coming back thank you.More

Zubuchon SRP SM Seaside Cebu City It is a basic practice from every prestige restau na irepeat ung order to the customer to confirm and validate before you pass it on sa kusina. And then, advise them how long it'd takes to prepare. Your server...did not do any of this. And even though we mentioned the right order several times to him, he still got it wrong. The worst part was, he was arrogant when we asked him, and he even pointed the blame on us, claiming the kids were noisy and he repeated it to me several times (obviously not coz you got it wrong, i even mistakenly pointed out the boneless lechon solo on the menu which he corrected me and said it was just a 1 person meal order and turn the page to the right one.) WOrst of WOrst experience. I know you claim you give out fresh lechon but the ribs/bones were blackened and saggy on the one that was serve to us, my brother even said this is a "scam" -sa ibabaw ung maputi at fresh na laman tpus kunting balat peru sa ilalim nkatagu ung bahaw na part. This could have been avoided if you had just given us what we ordered. to top this up, sira/bahaw ung chayote sa chopsuey nyu.. and again your waiter pointed out that we were wrong, all four of us including a senior were wrong, since your chef tasted it and said so. good luck with your customer service. nahiya tuloy ako sa mga kasama ko na nagbakasyun lng dito cebu.. #crappyRestaurant! with #rudeServers (or maybe not all server, mukhang magalang nmn ung isang babae dun, tong si kuya arrogante lng tlga ang walalng alam sa pagwawaiter.)More

We tried Zubuchun at SM Seaside. The food and service is good in as expected but it's the dinuguan that really stands out. It's a must try. Hope it's the same at other Zubuchon outlets.

We had a long day doing the tourist things of sight seeing. We decided to get lechon and our driver gave us several names to choose from. However, since it was late already we settled on Zubuchon. The waitress was helpful and candid enough to...tell us which lechon is “fresher” at that time. We had vegetables to go with our lechon. As we would say, “clean table”; meaning almost no leftovers! We visited this restaurant in December 2019 yet.More

My friend and I had very enjoyable dinner. The lechon was super crispy and very tasty! The service was very good and the staffs were all welcoming and ready to help. A lot of patrons frequent the place, which is a clear indication that Zubochon...is one of the "THE" places to go to for lechon.More

Before heading to the pier to ride the supercat to Ormoc I passed by Zubuchon in to eat my brunch. One fourth kilo of lechon, a cup of rice and a glass of iced tea was enough to fed my hunger. A very quiet place...to enjoy the food alone.More

Our family loves Zubuchon... great service crew too. We dined both branches at SM Sea Side and SM Cebu City. When I was leaving the branch at SM Cebu Zubuchon I left my phone at the table and one of the waiters ran after me...ti return it. I was grateful for that gesture shown. Keep up the great work, guys!More

We are so hungry we could eat the whole lechon. The servers are so polite and accommodating to us. The food is best of Cebu with wide selection Ensaladang Talong is perfect pair with Lechon. Ginumis is so yum! I love the red plate so...Zubu indeed. I recommend this resto to my family and friends esp those friends from abroad. Thanks zubuchon for filling up our tummy.More
