Lively Filipino music, rich and boisterous laughter and the clanging of utensils were in perfect harmony during the blessing and grand opening of Lantaw Native Restaurant Dumaguete. It seemed like one giant feast that brought together families from all over the city. And as the night progressed and the moon steadily lit the restaurant’s skyline, the crowd excited to taste the savory native delicacies unique to this new restaurant just kept getting bigger and bigger.
True to its name, the interior is a display of all things “native”. From its bamboo posts, one of a kind ‘nigo’ ceiling, kugon roofing and Filipino inspired murals, the ambiance of the resto has a classy Filipino vibe to it. To top it off, there is a jeepney frame in the middle of the food counter and there are bangkas hanging from the ceiling. The tables and chairs vary from wooden long tables and benches, to comfortable sofas and glass top dining tables. There is a semi-boardwalk inspired outdoor dining area with an adjacent kiddie playground and fountains, an open air indoor dining area as well as an enclosed air conditioned one, and another dining area situated on the resto’s patio fronting Escano beach.
