This restaurant has tasty and authentic Philippine cuisine. The wait staff is not remarkable, though, seeming largely disinterested. There are some quality Philippine dishes served here, at a bit higher but still moderate prices. This restaurant regularly attracts upper middle class and above Filipinos - seeming to be an oasis for them at Ayala Mall. All dishes seem to have... More

Let's be honest, there are many reasons to visit pinas, but the food isn't one of them. So when it arrives luke warm it's pretty unpalatable. The only thing that was warm was the coconut juice, and that should have been cold. Slow and disinterested service didn't help.

Great tasting food choices here and not expensive too! Favorites here are crispy pata, kare kare, maja mais and coco pandan. Even coffee is good! They serve pandan tea too.

My family brought me here when I went to Cebu and the food was AMAZING. The service was a little slow but they made up for it with the food. We had sinigang (sour soup) and crispy pata along with fresh and fried spring rolls and local delicacies or dessert.

I loved going to Laguna restaurant before. Their food used to be fresh and yummy. The price is affordable as well. That is why when my guest from Singapore came to Cebu, I did not hesitate to invite him to this restaurant. However, I was really disappointed and embarrassed because the food was cold and their lechon was just microwaved... More

At Laguna it was great food all the way, best seafood in along time. We are visiting Cebu in October and Laguna will be high on the list for places to eat out.

I went several times to the Laguna restaurant, the one to SM mall and the one to Ayala, mostly because my flipina friend was craving local food. Last time I ordered pork barbecue, lechon kawali and deep friend pork belly and spring rolls. The spring rolls were good but their sauce too sweet. The pork barbecue was just average. The... More

Nice variety of local cuisine but pricey. Make sure bookings are made in advance on weekends for dinner.

Ok food quality. Service - not so good - if you consider it service at all. Even with a group of 15 people, service was horrible. WE had to flag waiters all the time just to get service. It took forever yo get drinks and took longer to get cold food.
