CICADA: Tapas and Bar

DSCF0142 (2)

As what I’ve mentioned in the previous post, I will be sharing more about what to expect at CICADA – a tapas bar and alfresco casual dining. It is part of the newly opened Casa Dos of Circa 1900.

They officially opened last month and even though I was able to visit here a couple of times since, it never fails to make me appreciate its overall ambiance. I love how it provides a short respite for those who aspire to promote a lifestyle that embraces a sense of balance and well being through exercise, meditation, eating better, preservation and appreciation of heritage and culture. That is Circa 1900 is all about!

Dining choices includes casual or more refined, innovative cuisine and comfort food, however service standards though relaxed must still exude international standards while offering value of money.

Let me take you inside Cicada:

Don’t you just love the interiors?

You can also dine outdoors at the terrace or even at the pool side.

If you miss my previous post. I mentioned that Cicada of Casa Dos offers Dip and Dine for only P500*. This includes a consumable P300 on food and drinks from Cicada and the remaining P200 is for the use of pool. I suggest you contact the place ahead of time if you have plans to avail this to avoid conflicts on other function events on the day of your visit.

I don’t blame you if you feel hungry after reading his post because I am too! LOL and to make this place even more convenient, you don’t have to worry if the place is packed since they made sure there a lot of parking place for all visitors! Accessible parking space is always a plus on a restaurant, don’t you agree?
