“True taste of Ilocano Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It was our first night in Laoag and we decided to celebrate my birthday dinner here. They had a wide range of delicacies to choose from (Italian, American Diner food) but I was looking forward to tasting true Ilocano dishes and they did not let me down! We ordered Bagnet with KBL, Poqui-Poqui and Higadu. The food was amazing and the service was even better. We had ordered their Carrot cake for desert, I mentioned to my bf I wished I had a candle so I can make a birthday wish. The waiter went inside the cafe and when he returned, he gave me a birthday candle and he also let me borrow a lighter! It made my birthday very memorable.

“Best meal we had in the Philippines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We took our extended family for dinner at this place and enjoyed a fantastic variety of Ilocano cuisine. Absolutely delicious and enjoyable in every way. If we ever make it back to Laoag this is the first place I'll return to.

“not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My friend recommended this place for us to eat. We had their monster burger and cheesecake for dessert. I particularly didn't like the cheese cake. It tasted like icing on cake. I didn't think I got the value for my money. I also noticed that their wait staff wasn't attentive.

“Yummy ilocano cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

When we arrived at the resto, the relative of the owner greeted us & engaged in a small chat. So it was a nice welcome.

We ordered crispy dinuguan & poqui-poqui & we just loved it. Their rice is like the sticky japanese rice & tasted good as well. They have free wifi & you could see on the walls that their resto have been featured in several newspapers/magazines. Until now, im still craving for their food!
