Established in 1982, Golden Cowrie is an upscale restaurant designed to highlight authentic Cebuano flavors. It is a concept by Cebu Golden Restaurant Inc., which also established the famous Hukad. While Hukad focuses on a simple, no-frills Filipino menu, Golden Cowrie offers both classic and innovative takes on Filipino cuisine.

Fun Fact: “Golden” marks the family's 50th year in business, and “Cowrie” is a tribute to one of the prized shells in the Philippines.

Their first branch in Metro Manila showcases Filipino-inspired interiors that offer a clean and sophisticated ambience. Al fresco dining is also available, giving you a scenic view of the Manila Bay.

Insider tip: They have a function room good for 50pax.
