Balay sa Busay: Feel at home and Dine at the Mountain-Top

There are a lot of things to do in Cebu. You can swim in the beach, you can chase waterfalls or you can have a glamping trip. Or you can feel at home and dine and enjoy the picturesque view at Balay sa Busay. It is where you experience the tastiest modern Filipino food while enjoying the unobstructed, magnificent view of Cebu.

Balay sa Busay is the newest mountain-top restaurant in Cebu and we just love everything about it.


Comfort food made interesting!

“There are always those hard times when we miss home cooked food. The feeling of eating at home with the taste that we know of… nobody can take that away”.

If this is what you are expecting from Balay sa Busay, we hate to burst your bubble because you will surely get more than the “familiar food” feel. It is comfort food made interesting.


Balay sa Bulay serves modern Filipino food… recipes made with the Filipinos’ taste buds in mind. The resto makes use of native ingredients and used it differently. It is hard to find a word to describe how familiar, at the same time, distinct the food is. Two things for sure, the food is interesting and delicious!

We will just let these mouthwatering food photos below speak.

Balay sa Busay will also serve Lechon very soon. What a delight!

Cocktails and drinks are also available. The view is best enjoyed with a glass of Kyle’s Margarita!


The gorgeous house!

The view at Busay never fails to capture our hearts and Balay sa Busay have an unobstructed view of Cebu. Great food with a great view, what more can we ask.

The restaurant gives off a very comfortable feeling and a lot of breathing. The high ceiling, the home-like interior and almost every part is Instagrammable. I mean it, because even the comfort room has a vanity mirror.

Dining in the alfresco area with a magnificent view is a pleasant experience. And it sure would be heart-melting to be dining surrounding with fog.
