7 Mountain-Top Restaurants with a view in Busay

The mountain top of Busay has always been revered for its majestic view of Cebu City and the comfort that it gives to those who visit. It serves as a sanctuary for the weary and exhausted Cebuanos.

The most common establishments are those that sell food because everybody knows that food and drinks are best paired with the great view and of course some good company.
