Certainly the finest restaurant in Pangasinan

The sizzling bangus steak and crispy pata are my favorites and must try! The lamb chop is also a must try! But overall the food was really delicious. The prices are very affordable and the waiters were very attentive and courteous.

Affordable and really good food. Always order the sizzling Bangus, crispy pata, kilawin na Bangus, Crispy Shrimps, and banana mousse/sansrival! My lola has been eating here since 1928!

Waited for food for more than an hour. This place is so expensive and not worth it. If you are not "VIP", expect the worst. Never will I recommend this place nor will I eat here again.

We went on a Sunday night and yes, we anticipated the long wait but we did not mind because we liked the food so much when we last visited. We sat there for about 25 minutes and nobody took our order! We kept calling for waiters to take our order, but they all just looked at us like we were... More

Since my wife will be attending Med School in Dagupan for the next 5 years, I made it a point to try at least once every restaurant in Dagupan and see how they rank with my dining experiences not just in the Philippines but in other parts of the world...We decided to try this place as one of the first...

They are reasonable considering the quantity and quality of the food Dagupeña serves. Cons: Service is often slow and sometimes a viand is served after you have eaten all... More

Been here alot of times. Food was really average except for the pinakbet and the crispy pata which is also binagoongan. Great for reunions, get-together occasions. However, make sure you bring cash with you since they do not accept credit cards. Kind of a hassle for me since it is quite a great dining place but was really frustrated to... More

The food here is not that great. There are other restos which serve better tasting food for the same price or even less. But this place is really famous. You could tell by of volume of customers they get specially during lunchtime.

They have the best bangus steak and binagoongan crispy pata! A must try for all. For those who like spicy food, also try their thai chili bangus belly!

As the title says, just an average resto. average crew hospitality, food was not proportional to its price. food taste is also average, feels like expensive canteen serving foods in their formal names. ambience though can be a good point.
