The Kukuk’s Nest Garden Restaurant is a very homey, laid-back haven for locals and tourists alike. It is popular among backpackers and local artists and writers.
What makes Kukuk’s Nest stand out? There are interesting local paintings and shell craft on display in the restaurant. It is always invigorating to see these paintings and try to see things through the artist’s perspective. I always love guessing the meaning behind the paintings.
The food is absolutely scrumptious. I must say there are extraordinary meals that are incomparable to any other restaurant in Cebu City. The chicken curry is my absolute favorite. It has a unique, slightly spicy flavor that you’ll definitely go nuts over. Their goat stew is also widely raved about. Their menu combines East and West cuisines with Filipino, German, Indonesian, Thai, and French specialties. The servings are fairly generous and the prices are reasonable.
The restaurant also has a bar where groups of friends can just chill out and enjoy each other’s company. The surrounding plants and trees make your stay even more relaxing and momentarily take you away from the busy, chaotic city life.
Kukuk’s Nest sometimes hosts bands, art exhibits and local independent film screenings. The garden restaurant and bar is open 24/7.
The Kukuk’s Nest Pension House, which is located at the back of the restaurant, consists of two old ancestral houses. It offers simple and budget-friendly accommodations. There are 11 guest rooms available.
Kukuk’s Nest is located at 157 Gorordo Avenue, Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines. It is very near the Ayala Center Cebu mall (within walking distance) and IT Park.
