It's safe to say that dining under the stars with the magnificent Eiffel Tower in sight is every person's fantasy. Not to mention you get to enjoy authentic French food while you’re at it! Although it might seem like a far off dream right now given our current situation, did you know you can actually have a taste of this very experience just in Cebu? Introducing, the city's "Little Paris"—La Vie Parisienne.
The place is wrapped in total elegance and mysterious sophistication, defined by exquisite fixtures, furniture, and accents. It really isn't your typical French restaurant as they also have a cherry blossom-filled garden area with colored chairs that create an ambience unique only to Cebu.
Be enchanted as you wine and dine, tasting an array of their house favorites in La Vie Parisienne’s French Wine Library. They not only have some of the best French pastries, wines, and deli products in the country, but they also provide an authentic French eating experience, similar to that of a traditional Parisian bakery and deli shop.
Start off your meal with their delectable Goat Cheese Salad (P215) or Burrata Salad with Marinated Red Bell Peppers and Mango (P450).
You can also get their entree starters like the Imported French Snails (P180) or their Soup of the Day (P200).
For the main meal, there’s a variety of meats you can choose from. The Sea Bass with Lemon Buttered Sauce (P550) is a good route to take if you prefer fish, but if you want to go red, the Steak Wagyu with Pommes Pont Neuf (P1,600) will be the perfect dish.
Certainly, a selection can’t be complete without the staples! Go with the classic options like the Linguini with Pesto Sauce and Vegetables (P295) or the Smoked Salmon Carbonara (P290). Alternatively, you can always take the less familiar yet equally exciting route with their Foie Gras Spaghetti (P1,200) or White Truffle Spaghetti (P1,200).
So, the next time you go out for a fancy date night or a classy dinner with your family in Cebu, this French restaurant is your best bet!
La Vie Parisienne is located at 271 Gorordo Avenue, Lahug, Cebu City.
