Made with Passion: Polita, a modern Filipino Restaurant in Cebu City

With the vibrant comeback of the opening of businesses and establishments also comes the opening of new places to visit here in Cebu, adding sultry to the city’s beauty.

If you are looking for new places and spots to visit here in Cebu, there is a new restaurant that offers a lovely ambiance, impeccable food selections, and excellent service. Check out Polita, offering modern Filipino cuisine infused with popular dishes from other countries.

Polita features pink and grey tones making it gender-neutral, a place that can be enjoyed by everyone. Its name is inspired by the character of El Filibusterismo, Polita Gomez, whose character — feminine but balanced — resonated in the restaurant’s ambiance. It is a well-lit space making the place vibrant.

Since their menu is infused with foreign cuisine, this also influenced the overall look of Polita, in retrograde but with a minimalistic and modern side. The arches made it European-like.

Menu Made from Premium and Fresh Ingredients

Polita is founded by Victoria Tancinco. She started it out of her passion for food as she continued pursuing the field of the Food and Beverage industry. Together with her partner who shares the same passion, they work hand-in-hand serving delectable food made with passion.

To ensure its premium quality and taste, Tancinco personally buys fresh ingredients at 4 AM. Some of the ingredients they use are from abroad — an example is their best-seller, the Truffle Spence (Pancetta Fusili & Cheese). They use real truffles from an Italian supplier. 

My favorite is their Potato Chips with Aioli Sauce inspired by the Mediterranean seas. Its salty taste is a perfect appetizer especially when you order meat since its sauce consists of garlic, it uses olive oil making it not too greasy, light, and overall appetizing. 

One of their must-haves is Grilled Pork Back-Ribs in BBQ Sauce. Their meat melts into your mouth, and it is glazed, it makes the meaty taste disappear.


Best Sellers:

  • Spiced Glazed & Grilled Pork Chop w/ Spicy Coconut Cream Sauce
  • Truffle Spence – Pancetta Fusilli & Cheese
  • Victoria’s Drink
