Local Saturdate. 

Making date nights easier. 

Round one.

Tapas + ambiance = great conversations. Start your night with sangria’s in this cozy modern Spanish interiors restaurant.

Gorliz: tapas + vinos | located at the latest addition commercial arcade – streetscape. Wine and dine in such a unique spot in the heart of Cebu city.  The interiors: modern eclectic Spanish design. 

Your eyes gravitate to the eye candy wall of handpainted floor to ceiling tile. Open kitchen layout surrounded by a combination of wood, brick and exposed caged wine display. The seating: leather tucked & tufted, definitely first world design trends.

Could be romantic, or simply casual for a first date. You initially forget you are dining in Cebu! 

The food

1. Guava jelly + manchego cheese (what an amazing refreshing combination) 

2.  Tapas! Tapas! & more tapas: one of the most flavorful mixes I’ve tasted. Definitely Spanish food at its best. 

3. Arugula + jamon, oranges, tomato, manchego w/ sherry vinaigrette- fresh crispy goodness! 


What’s Spanish cuisine without Paella? It was cooked to perfection! The flavors simply infused together making you crave for more.  

 Dinner was perfect! Nothing like feeling in Spain in a small city like Cebu. 

Round two

Date night is not complete without a night cap. 

What about art + locally crafted beer for a change ? This was the flight of testers at the “Cebu brewing company”   My personal favorite is the mango + blueberry ale. Brewed to perfection. Sweet and flavorful! A perfect girly beer. 

The flavorsRaspberry + almond + mango + blueberry + hazelnut + bitter & amber ale.   A perfect size flight for only php 150! ($4) 
Complete your night & stroll around upstairs while you enjoy the local artist work at Qube gallery– crossroads.   

It’s always a fun night when you put culture and art, food + design. Something different to take your mind away from the busy week you had.

One of the paintings that captured my attention, and described my mood last night.

This. A Saturday date night must do experience.
