Most restaurants have a garden or landscape of sorts as an added small element in their own setting. But in Cagayan de Oro City, there’s one restaurant wherein the diner itself is located in the middle of a large garden.
MACEY’S located along Masterson Avenue right across Uptown Condotel is a restaurant you really wouldn’t notice for the first time. Although its signage can be clearly seen from the road, you would probably think it’s just another local fast food spot.
Now quietly operating for three years, it’s facade really doesn’t ring a bell or perhaps just a second look.
But once you get inside passed the small front store, you will be welcomed by the sight of a large garden with plants, pathways and dining tables in almost every section.
What makes this spot unique is that each dining table is totally distinct from other tables in the garden.
Not one spot is the same.
You can choose whichever spot you would like for a romantic meal or some business talk.
…or perhaps you might just want to be alone and hear the birds sing.
From a metal-glass table…
… to an ancestral style dining wooden table…
Macey’s probably has more garden tables to choose from than a furniture shop.
Ornamental plants of all varieties also abound.
Seat pillows and umbrella tents…you can get an idea for your own garden set.
Even artistic backgrounds, vases and place holders….
Tables are of all shapes and sizes…
In case you would like something indoor, Macey’s also has it.
This space can be converted as a function room for gatherings like birthdays, parties and meetings.
But hey, their food is also good…and they serve well. Check out their menu.
They also have something for groups…
…and for parties.
…and for bigger groups.
Here’s the seminar package.
Because the garden is quite large, you need to ring the bell provided on each table to call the waiter.
Each table has a bell, a soy sauce, vinegar and a plant.
