When you're in Cebu, the best thing to do when the sun goes down is to chill out to some higher ground where the mood is mellow, the meal marvelous and the moon magical. Usually, the locals there would tell you to go to Tops where visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.

For a change, however, we settled for something at a lower elevation but still with an awesome vista of Cebu at night. The place? Mr. A's Bar and Resto, a new establishment neatly tucked somewhere in the hilly village of Busay in Lahug. Besides its wonderful location, the resto bar is gaining a following because of the delectable, all-time favorite Filipino dishes they serve which you can eat either al fresco or indoors.
With its spacious veranda that serves as a viewing deck, night owls will find themselves moon-struck (not the lunatic kind, I should say) or perhaps love-struck during evenings as the cozy ambience transforms into an intimate and romantic venue.
Upon seeing the place for the first time, my colleagues and I readily fell in love with its cool and laid-back atmosphere even though we had a hard time finding a spare table — the place was crawling with diners. But we were able to find one after a brief lull and had our sumptuous meal. After dinner, I explored the place and tried to find a location where I can indulge in a favorite nocturnal exercise — moon-gazing!  
Gazing at the moon has always been a pastime of mine even when I was a kid, some kind of a passion that I think is shared by many other people, too.  There's something about the moon that has sparked the human imagination. Fortunately, in this day and age, you just don't get to stare at this celestial body but shoot her as well. And that's exactly what I did that fateful night when she showed up there in the hillsides of vibrant Cebu.
