10,000 Roses & Cafe

An LED (Light Emitting Diode) power roses made of plastic is the newest attraction you can find at the end point of Cordova in Cebu Province. The roses are 3 feet tall.

The restaurant is floating in the sea – near the shores, rather! “Lantaw” is a Cebuano term of “can be seen from afar”. In this case, this refers to the great views of the Cebu skyline, which you can see from across the waters, especially at night.

They're open from 11am-11pm (Monday-Thursday), 10am-11:45 (Friday-Saturday), and 10am-10pm (Sunday).

They serve seafood, appetizers, cold/hot beverages, soups, grilled meat/fish and vegetables.

This restaurant is just beside the 10,000 Roses & Café.
