I’ve been to Cebu many times – mostly for work. Though on certain occasions, I manage to squeeze in some tourist-y activities. Last month, I was there again and yes, again for work. So what tourist-y activity did I do this time you ask? Well I invited my work colleagues to go to La Maison Restaurant aka the Pink Restaurant!

La Maison is a French restaurant that used to be the elegant family home of the late Jose and Esperanza Velez. Louis Thevenin director and general manager of Alliance Francais de Cebu (AFC), a French language school, was the one responsible for La Maison Rose which serves French cuisine under a young French chef, Adrien Guerrey.

Let’s go inside this very Parisian chic resto…

Our reservation was at 8:30 PM so they sat on the couch while we waited to be seated while I explored the place, taking photos.

At La Maison, the menu can be found in the tablet. This is where you’ll also input your order.

The dishes have photos you can click if you want to see what it is you’re ordering. Just got to click here and there. 
Me with my work colleagues, chilling and celebrating the end of our work event in Cebu. 
Belle decided to celebrate Friday with a wine drink. The rest of us though settled for iced tea and mango shake. Wine would’ve gone nicely with the meal we had but I couldn’t drink alcohol since I was recovering from sickness that time.  
And here are what we ate:
We had these for appetizers. Pumpkin soup, potato salad and a canape bread. This is complimentary. 

And we also had bread with butter. Also complimentary.

For our main course:

Fat and juicy gambas served with rice

Succulent steak served with dill rice

And I forgot what this dish is called. (“,) 
And this is the view outside from where we were. That’s La Vie Parisienne, the French Bakery. Next time I’m in Cebu, I might try there. 

Kinda lakas makasosyal of La Maison Rose though the food pricing is affordable and it was good. Well worth the effort I exerted to go there after a long day of work.
