We had recommendation to go there. It is maybe the best in town. We order steak, soup and noodles. I think it is in an average level. Ok but not excellent

Thin Pizza was awesome. POQUI POQUI, a must to try! your entire Northbound trip was incomplete without trying these spectacular dishes of Ilocanos! Try as well the empanda (with... More

Café Leona is at the verge of becoming a good restaurant in Vigan. The atmosphere, food and location all are wonderful, but the service is slower than a snail. We were there for over 2 hours just for appetizers, pizza and a couple of main dishes. It took our waiter 20 minutes just to bring out peanuts. When we did... More

Great cafe at lunch when eating inside. At night the tables spread out across the road and the cafe gets very busy. Often thry wont take bookings but it is worth asking if a large group table required. The grill food was great but not on the menu so you need to ask for it. Quite pricey for the area.... More

During long public holidays, expect to wait 2 or more hours before you get seated. Food is good. Would have given it 5 stars if not for the long wait for a table.

Our order came in forever, the food was average, nothing special or to die for. Waiters are tired, moved slow.

Had dinner at Cafe Leona for the two nights we stayed in Vigan obviously because we found the food delicious and reasonably priced. The establishment could use some updating as the restaurant had very poor lighting giving the appearance that the dining area is unclean. The menu had a wide variety but "nothing for dessert" except local ice cream bars... More

This cafe is overrated. Ambience is too dark, and its full pack especially during peak hours. There's an extra space at the side of the restaurant, but they keep it close. Ordered Bagnet platter that includes pinakbet, sinigang, daing na bangus and Bagnet. But the foods are cold. And waited more than 30mins for our order.

We've reached Vigan late in the evening so we were just wandering around where to eat. Fast food restaurants were already closed at that time. Better go out early since they don't have lots of restaurants open till midnight. Good thing, I saw this restaurant already on lists to visit. Though, its kinda odd since they're pricey and the ambiance... More
