“Must try in Cebu City!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

I agree with many travelers that this is one of the best Filipino restaurants in Cebu City. The fact that it hasn't opened a branch in Manila makes it a more worthwhile visit.

All their food choices are great! I can tell that they don't scrimp on the ingredients.

But what's up with Cebu and slow service? I was totally unimpressed with the service. Everyone seems to be crawling.

“good filipino food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

good local filipino food, a slightly more upmarket restraunt serving filipino foods, and prices reflect this when compared with other local restraunts such as chickaan, food is good but not spectacular.

“very good food but the serving time was too long (20-25mins)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

The food in this restaurant was really good, except the serving time. i ordered chicken in pandan leaves, ampalaya with prawn, lumpia shanghai, laguna express, bibingka, and fish fillet with tausi. All of the food was good, its really a different taste of Filipino's food. For example: i like ampalaya but i dont like the way pinoy cooks it (for me: it is too soft, not fresh and too oily), but here the ampalaya was fresh and just right with the bitter taste of ampalaya.The bibingka was good too....ough...i love the food here
However, the serving time was too long; it took 20-25 minutes.

The price for the food 100php - 400php

If you're looking for a Filipino Restaurant in Cebu City that offers the best taste of Filipino foods then Cafe Laguna @ Ayala Center is one of the best place to go. The price is quite high but the taste is guaranteed!
