If you love barbecue, this is the place for you compared to Larsian. All the stuff that you can get. Delicious chicken and pork barbecue. A kinda expensive but if you will go as a group, no problem with the price.

I never heard of this place until a local I met suggested this place to us. The only landmark I remember going in this place is that this is located in front of Metro mall. This is not a commercial restaurant, as the place is...More

The first time I tried Matias was after the Cebu earthquake last October 2013. It was the only eatery that was opened for lunch (the trembler was felt as 8am!) so we decided to eat there. The dining area is al fresco and very informal....More

Got to eat here with friends. The foods were good, their serving size was large but I kinda find it a little expensive. The place feels breezy since you seat under the shade of trees. But overall experience it was great. There's also a parking...More

Food is nothing spectacular but it seems like dining under the trees is a universal pleasure. More so when you eat with your hands 😊

This is the best chicken barbecue place for the Cebuano. Growing up in Cebu, those that have moved to other places will always come back for their chicken. And those who stayed will gladly bring them here. It is very simple to rate this place....More

They say its the best bbq place in Cebu, but I thinks its overhyped. Ive tried Yakski and Larsians and they taste so much better. Thought each restaurant has its own taste, people labeling it as the best is an overhyped. Not worth the waiting...More

This place looks like it grew from a backyard barbecue to small enterprise. If you're a group do not come @ the usual noon eating time, the place easily fills up. The parking will also be a challenge. The food is what you'd expect from...More

The experience here is as raw as it gets - the bare-bones table-chair setup, the open-air, smoke-filled atmosphere. Your background music is the symphony of blaring car horns & revving engines from the nearby traffic. Don't make an about-face just yet, the food here is...More
