I have high hopes that they will also have the best food serve but I was completely wrong. The food was not that great at all and there are dishes that you need to wait a little longer. Props to some of the crew for...their hospitalityMore

Have been here several times. Some food good, some so-so, and some really awesome like their linagang pork, pancit guisado, and cebu humba. These three taste as good as the comfort food I always looked forward to having when visiting Cebu relatives. Another consistent thing...here is the slow service, specifically slow refill of the buffet line. I dunno if this is some kind of strategy but everytime we ask for tempura (camaron rebusado actually, not the Japanese tempura which they advertise as UNLIMITED), the standard line is they're still waiting for refill from the kitchen. Once the shrimps get in, they cook them in front of people in this medium pan which can only hold so much so if you're at the back of the line, by the time you reach the front, all you get is an empty serving dish so you wait again for the next cycle. I didn't mind this so much before as shrimp are not my favorite but with visitors in this visit, its such a huge letdown! The place is not even half full, and they're this slow. Now ... only 3-4 tables are occupied, and the buffet line is finally getting refills. Such perfect timing to thwart people from getting more, or what? Long time before will come back, if coming back at all.More

Had dinner here with fsmily. Parking was full. They told us to park in the hotel, which we did. I asked my ticket to be validated but they refused saying they are separate from the lousy hotel. They adviced us to walk back and transfer...our car when there will be vacant space. Asked to see a manager but no one appeared. Food is cold and not good, same ss their staff, it is of low quality. I should have chosen carenderia. Maybe food and service there is better.More

Just had a dinner in this restaurant with the family. I got very disappointed. Most of the buffet items are cold (at 6 pm, start of dinner time, imagine?), no serving spoon and corresponding condiments. I can see flies roaming around especially on dessert section....Totally not worth it, sadly.More

I should have taken my earlier review that I wrote about this restaurant to heart (https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g298460-d2652457-r162256038-Port_Restaurant-Cebu_City_Cebu_Island_Visayas.html#REVIEWS) But I thought I would try it again after some 6 years. I can be brief, the food didnt taste well, the squid was the pits, tasted old. My...date got sick afterwards, so I would really avoid this restaurant. I know I will. The Port restaurant is not owned or operated by the Waterfront Hotel, but it is on its premises. It does reflect bad on the Hotel thoughMore

will never go to this restaurant again!!... I visited this restaurant a few years back it's not disappointing as it is now. They only have one main course which is chicken fried with banana leaf. pansit which tastes too salty. we dont have a lot...of options and all the rest are pretty crappy. its not worth your 450php. so dont ever try to visit this restaurant. the staff are not so nice. he ddnt even consider my neice which is 11 yrs old coz shes talker by half inch. the waiter is kind of rude. hes racist. The mgt should change thier menu as well as train their staff well. everybody should be treated equal.More

Men's restroom is very dirty! The door to the toilet cubicle is broken. Obviously, there is no toilet maintenance crew at all.
