What I like about this place is the laidback vie. Being inside Pueblo de Panay gives it an exclusive feel. We were here at night so the mood was relaxed and intimate.

Two years later and I was back in Roxas City. Thanks to the Familiarization Tour of Las Islas Travel and Tours, I got to explore Pueblo de Panay even more. I didn't expect the township to be vast. Deep in the township, situated on a hill, is El Circulo Convention Center which is popular for all kinds of events. The view from here is lovely as it allows for a 360 degree perspective of Roxas City.
Aside from the Convention Center, they opened a restaurant wing ---CAFE TERRAZA. The hallways behind, amidst a spacious lawn and a view of the mountains and the township below, serve a dining area. They have also put up huts on the other side with an equally lovely hill view. Al fresco dining at its best.
The food I can still remember well. Delicious delicious. We were served some of the signature dishes of Cafe Terraza ---Asado na Pata, Bangus Sisig, Gambas, Adobadong Pantat (Catfish), Chilled Blueberry Cheesecake and Red Velvet Cake. I highly recommend their gambas and buttered oyster. The bangus sisig is also good. I am bit of a picky eater so I didn't get to taste Asado na Pata and Adobong Pantat but my blogger friends say they are really good. They are no bestsellers if not. Their cakes are fine and are amazingly cheap.
Inspired by the "pueblo" concept of development (or "small Spanish Town"), "Pueblo de Panay" is reminiscent of the Philippine era where the seat of governance, religion, trade, and education was within easy access to residents and visitors alike.

Las Islas Travel and Tours
Speaking of host, we were invited on this trip by Las Islas Travel and Tours as part of the 3-day Roxas-Islas Gigantes FamiliarizationTour. It is the one and only tour company in Roxas City
and therefore has a pivotal role in promoting not just Roxas City as a tourism destination but also Islas Gigantes and soon lesser known beautiful spots in the island of Panay. Las Islas Travel and Tours believe that Panay is under-served and under-promoted despite the diversity of attractions in Capiz and the whole island of Panay.
