I love their poqui poqui. Wish they served more of the bagnet,it was just 4 slices and the KBL dip made up most of the plate. But the cakes are ooh soo good. We had the Oreo Cheesecake and the Carrot Cake.

The food was great, my husband being an Ilocano himself, enjoyed everything we ordered. We had their famous poqui poqui, which I personally liked, crispy dinuguan which you should eat while hot, sinigang for my daughter and pakbet. For dessert I ordered 1 slice of carrot cake for php100 which the 5 of us shared, it is really good! My... More

Never had the chance to try the infamous Ilocos food until now as I am currently in Laoag. La Preciosa is the first resto out of 4 that I have noted to try. With this latest experience I would have to rate it average or a mix bag. Most certainly not consistent. The Pros.. The service was nice and attentive,... More

If you're looking for something sumptuous in Laoag you must visit this place. Others are saying that the price is a bit high. Surprise! It is! But a dish can be shared up to 3 person so there's noting to worry about. At least try the dinuguang bagnet and everything else. :)

The food is great but the service is even better! From the time we arrived until it was ready to go, the staff was attentive. Kudos to the management, they know how to deliver excellent customer service!

The price of the food is a little high for the place. The ambience is not really good and the atmosphere is oppresively humid. I have seen other restaurants which serve better and tasty "poqui-poqui" (eggplant dish). The local vegetable dish, pinakbet, is not authentic either. It has lots of tomatoes which diluted the real pinakbet flavor. The crispy dinuguan... More

This old-looking restaurant has something big to offer inside. Just right after we arrived from our first day of the tour in Ilocos, we decided to check the nearest restaurants that can serve our hungry tummy like big time. We really did not pay attention on this restaurant since it is like an old-cozy-high-end restaurant and only people who are... More
