The group discussed about bringing Lantaw to Dumaguete. Having found a suitable location that embodies the restaurant’s name “Lantaw”, Pages Holdings Inc has successfully put up it’s branch here in the city. Since it’s Lantaw, you can see Cebu and Siquijor. We found this place, so we decided to go with it. Mr. Inaki Yoldi, one of the branch owners, said in a quick interview.

In Lantaw Dumaguete branch, diners can enjoy the sea breeze in an Al Fresco dining experience. The location is the same with that of the SRP branch fronting the sea.


They opened to the public last Saturday, June 18, 2016. It was full house opening night where everyone enjoyed good food.

As for their menu, Mr. Iñaki Yoldi mentioned that they have invented some of the menus and it’s a lot cheaper compared to the prices in the Cebu branches. Their prices cater to the Dumagueteños taste. He also mentioned that their menu is open so they can add Dumaguete specials as long as it is a native food. “Here in Dumaguete, we have 5 or 6 in the menu which are not offered in other Lantaw branches“he added.

They are open all week from 11AM to 11PM and is open for reservations for events. A function room for small & big group ideal for meetings, tranings and events is also available
