The menu was extensive - Filipino, Italian, Thai and Japanese. We sampled a bit of everything and were surprised how good the food was and the portions were large. Service was great. The red house wine at 100 php per glass is a must try along with the Chicken Parmigana (yum). There is a drawback - it is a very... More

We dined before and after Mass, first enjoying a crab and corn soup that was a huge serving, and later having chicken tempura and a double patty cheeseburger with unusual round chips, as well S a serve of cheese nachos. The food was reasonably priced although P60 for a San Miguel Light is steep in Philippines. The people watching along... More

Visited on our last day in Ilocos and yearning to taste the best food in Vigan. Waited to be seated for more than an hour, but I understand because it's peak season. A bit disappointed because food is not extra ordinary for the price except for Bagnet which is not normally found in Manila.

I find it a bit over rated. I ordered Morcon (~220 php) but we were served which to me is an embutido. But i wouldn't fault them because maybe it is their own version of the dish. We also ordered the solo meal platter (290 php)consisting of half daing na bangus (milkfish) (not boneless and not sour as typical daing),... More

We visited vigan during the peak season as such, this place had very long lines. We were finally able to eat here on our last night. One of the major selling points is definitely the ambiance of the outdoor dining area especially at night since it is literally on calle crisologo. Food was good especially the bagnet as it wasn't...

I had high hopes for this restaurant, but the overall outcome was quite average. This had been raved about as a go-to destination but nothing really quite stood out. The food was good, as is with most Ilocano cuisine, and was served promptly. The price is adequate to the taste and serving size of the food. The place felt a... More

This place has an extremely extensive menu- To the point of being absolutely bewildering! It would take a long time to read through the whole thing... I'm not sure whey they try to pack in every imaginable type of food, but the seem to somehow manage and pull off serving everything from Filipino, to Thai, Sushi, Japanese, Pizzas and Pastas...

It was fun to eat dinner out in the street with the local people, horses and culebras going by. Nice menu with lots of options.
