Waiters were quick to serve our orders. Very courteous and pleasant. Loved their roasted pork belly & calamari. Finished the meal with a delicious rainbow ice cream!

This outlet has special rates for bulk beer and liqour. It is set-up with common areas and special nooks for groups of 5 and more under large umbrellas.

Most of the time crowded for lunch time. Some simple dishes were offered including hamburgers, sandwhiches, and light meals. Service was ok and food was average.

Our family of 14 dining at Buko Bar was good. My nephew loved the calamari, the fried sweet potato and the quinoa salad, the best healthy option at least. We are here to enjoy the family bonding and we don't mind too much, neither being fussy about the food ..service is good and friendly.

Their lechon manok was the best. The place was clean and the staff was very nice. The ambience and views were very relaxing. If you are in the area definitely a place you should try to experience.

Spent most of the time at the pool where I met Richel Cortuna (staff). Rachel was a joy to have by our side. She was a joy to talk to, great sense of humour, polite and helpful. On a relaxing vacation Richel is a fantastic friend at the resort to have. Thanks you Richel!

Calamari was tough, salad had some old lettuce leaves (not crunchy at all, rather limp & had dark colours) halo-halo was really meh (Little Quiapo in Paranaque serves way better version for half the price). We had late & heavy breakfast so we thought having snacks here at... More

great service. Albino took good care of us and kept us amused with his tales. that being said, the food was a letdown. most of the burgers were not made with beef, and i could not taste the meat in the traditional hamburger i ordered for lunch. only upside was the sweet potato fries and the banana lychee drink.

The buffet at Buko Bar restaurant at Shangri-la Hotel, Mactan isalnd, Cebu, Philippines is probably the worst ever buffet I have seen in my entire life. The selection of food for buffet in a 5-star hotel is very poor, expensive and there is extra charge for drinks. The only good thing about this restaurant are the friendly staff and the... More
