Today I happened to be over at Robinsons and I had gone past a Mexican Bistro several times in the last month or so but generally I was either on route to somewhere or going home just grabbing groceries. But today April was off getting her haircut so decided to drop by and was lucky enough that Hans the owner was in at the same time to discuss the restaurant and food delights. The prices seemed reasonable and after discussing with Hans about the food at his restaurant it came apparent he was putting quality first. Although originally from Germany he had spent time near the Mexican border which is where he got the taste for authentic Mexican food and its also the reason he wanted to create as close to possible the same dishes here in Cebu. As you can see they are producing an impressive looking group of dishes.
On my visit I mainly just had a coffee and a few snacks the bistro is compact with a booth type layout giving privacy and ideal for dropping by for business lunches or family functions. I would advise dropping by and trying the food yourself as the quality is great as well as the friendly atmosphere generated by the staff and the owner. Bit of advice for any people without hot taste buds out there though is that you can ask food to be toned down a few notches so you don’t have to worry if you worry that the food will be too spicy.
Another important factor is they offer a catering service which to be honest I haven’t seen anyone else do in Cebu with Mexican food but the prices are reasonable and guaranteed to be a bit different to the usual meals you come across.
The restaurant itself is easy to find. When you head into Robinsons mall from the main entrance head towards the supermarket entrance and before entering turn immediately right to which you will see a pharmacy near another exit/entrance the Bistro is directly opposite the Pharmacy this offers a bit of privacy and no so much foot traffic when your trying to eat,drink or talk.
