The food is very delicious, the place is clean also. But the staff isn't entertaining that though. However, overall experience is ok though.

Don't know what the hype was all about. Food was average - there was not even one distinct in the Menu and the servers were not that welcoming/friendly. The ambiance was nothing spectacular. I regretted buying in into all that hype.

I really did not understand what the fuss was all about. We had to wait such a long time for our table as the lines were so long. The food was nothing spectacular, my Grandmother cooks better Filipino food.

The bowl of noodles that we ordered had some kind of a bug floating in it when it was served! So disgusting. The rest of the food that we ordered was Blah! Please, do yourself a favor and Stay away from this restaurant if you're in Vigan.

We ordered the Vigan longganisa and it seems like it was re-heated. We compared the taste with that of the hotel and it was different

Food was cold and average-tasting. Menu is a confused amalgam of different cuisine desperately trying to please all customers. Customer service: tepid Cost: overpriced Tourist trap. Not worth visiting.

Cafe Leona opens late, which was the primary reason we were led there. Once there, however, we were treated to a very good meal for a very good price. The menu is quite extensive, something for everyone. The place is not elegant, but relaxed and comfortable. Everyone seems to enjoy being there and for good reason. Service is slow but... More

The food was excellent but because of the number of people inside plus those waiting to get in, service was a little compromised. Skip the rest of the other new food places (Max etc) and try out Cafe Leona. You won't regret it.

No doubt that the food is good. I had to slightly moan upon tasting the longganisa as it was juicy, well - spiced and when you bite into it, it pops a bit. That was a delight. The pinakbet was the best I ever had: so much veg and the pork was good too. However, I felt uncomfortable whilst eating... More

Old style of the dine in area and the exterior and interior of the building are the first thing that you can see. I like the ambiance of it , again it is so very relaxing and the ambiance is perfect for bonding and chilling those are things that I always looking for to all coffee shops. Unique taste of... More
