Eat. drink. enjoy.

casual dining with serious food

At the end of the day, it's just about making good food.


A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America’s Napa campus, Chef Izzy Sy was inspired by the casual California dining of the area. In creating KAYU, he knew he wanted to focus on what really matters—what’s on the plate.

At KAYU: Kitchen + Bar, traditional western dishes are infused with Asian techniques and flavors, bringing interesting combinations to the palate.

For its international influences, though, KAYU also remains rooted in its Cebuano identity. It stands in a stylish, renovated 1950s-era home in the midst of 32 Sanson, an urban oasis and Rockwell Land’s first venture in Cebu. Its name is also inherently local—Chef Izzy takes it from the local word for fire, which he says describes his passion for food.
