Ayala Terraces in Cebu

Ayala in Cebu has changed a lot since I left in October 2008. Only a few days after I left that Ayala Terraces opened. The Ayala Terraces is the result of the few months of renovation of the back part of the ACC. The entire complex now houses restaurants and food establishments both coming from Cebu and other parts of the country.

On the contrary, I find the rates of the food establishments here relatively affordable (as compared to Metro Manila prices). So far, I’ve only been able to dine at Mooon Cafe — a Mexican Restaurant, Sunburst — Cebu’s signature fried chicken and UCC Cafe.

The Ayala Terraces is a PhP 600M development project by the Ayalas in Cebu. The Terraces, which was originally Ayala Center Cebu’s Lagoon before it was renovated, comprises 8,000 square meters of available floor area for establishments. The addition of the Ayala Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu gives Cebuanos a new definition to their urban lifestyle.
