Great Drinks

After an afternoon kalesa ride, my husband and I stopped by Cafe Leona for a beer and frozen margarita. The ambiance reminded me of some hole in the wall eating places in Spain. The place gets filled up fast. They too have tables Al Fresco .

Good service, friendly waiter (though somewhat limited English) efficient service. Offers tasty food, not expensive, with plenty of locals eating there and so pleasant and lively atmosphere.

Perfectly located along Calle Crisologo. The Pinakbet is full of flavour, coming from fresh vegetables and mildly flavoured bagoond. The vigan longanisa pizza is a must try. They could improve on the bagnet. Ours was a bit chewy during our visit. Service and price is quite satisfactory.

The resto is close to the plaza. It is just across the Vigan Plaza Hotel. Food is good and affordable. The place is cozy. Service staff was at hand and quick to serve.

It is our last day in Vigan and we tried on of the old but famous restaurant based on some travellers blog. Upon entering the resto, I found it quite eerie. Maybe because of the ambiance.My boyfriend and I ordered for a pasta and a 12 inch pizza. It was good. What we noticed is their plate. Kinda old and... More

On our last day in Ilocos, the hubby and I ventured out to Vigan to show him Calle Crisologo. Apart from the tourist attraction, I wanted him to taste the local cuisine. We didn't have much time so we only got to eat at one restaurant, which was Cafe Leona. And we loved it. :) The Place Cafe Leona is... More

This place is all about the location: at the top of the cobble stones street in Vigan. So the ambiance is quite nice but the rest is just average.

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.
