The food is nice and diverse, although having eaten here on numerous occassions, I have to say that the quality of the food isn't consistent (i.e. sauces don't taste the same, cuts are different, presentation varies, etc). Still a great place to eat, but I guess they have their off-days (sometimes the food is amazing and other times not so).... More

I found this place to be average at best food-wise, and as far as service is concerned, it was quite bad. But that's typical in Vigan, where the town doesn't really have any understanding of tourism.

We went to visit this place for lunch and it turn out to be a horrible experience. We order our lunch on their prepared menu for faster service that turned out to be not fast at all... We waited for all our food to be completed. The worst case i have is that I order a Sinigang na Bangus for... More

Cafe Leona served variety of choices. Pasta, Pizza, Japanese food, Ilocano (native) dishes, Chinese and more. Maybe this is why more people preferred here. We tried to take our dinner here. The interior is dark and people smoke. Ohh we were in the smoking area and there was also an area for non-smokers. But then what if more are non... More

Went here to experience a "local" resto. When we entered, we thought the place was closed because there was no greeting and the two staffs just stared at us. We had to take the menu from the shelves ourselves and call the staff for our order. The food is okay, we ordered pizza and pasta. Maybe we came at the... More

Well, you can't really complain as the cafe itself boasts a one-step access to Vigan's heritage center--Calle Crisologo. Expect that food is not as cheap as other similar cafes in the area, since the location is premium; but food, definitely, is good :) We tried pinakbet, beef steak, and vigan longanisa for breakfast, all of which, we thoroughly enjoyed. The... More

Eating outside is great because A/C inside is a little extreme for my blood. Waiters are not bad but they certainly are not enthusiastic or particularly welcoming. The food is what brought me back each time. Even when on the third night they got my order wrong, it was better than what I wanted. The stuffed calamari was really fresh,... More
