When we first arrived we were told the House of Lechon had run out of lechon. Pretty early around 6:30pm. We decided to eat anyway the wait was about 30 minutes. Eventually, we got seated and the waiter told us someone canceled their lechon order...so they had a plate for us. That was good luck because the lechon here is certainly good.More

When you're out of time to venture out to towns like Carcar to try Cebu's incredibly tasty lechon, House of Lechon brings the gorgeous roast pig to you right at the comfort of their restaurants in the city. They have an expansive Filipino menu, but...make sure to order their lemongrass-infused, umami-bomb lechon and pair it with their amazing dipping sauce.More

The name of the restaurant itself, that’s why we tried the lechon dish here. No doubt, one of the best restaurant in Cebu City. However, the foods are quite pricey so we ended up only ordered a small order of lechon and munggo.

Today, we went to see this restaurant near our hotel for our dinner. Ordered pork sisig, 1/4 kg spicy lechon, rice and mango shake. We were expecting a bit above quality of food from the regular lechon and sisig that we are used to, as...the price is higher compare to other restaurants that serve the same dishes. But to our disappointment, we have been served a burned sisig and the lechon was not spicy inspite of a small flag saying 'spicy' that sticked to.the lechon. The pork meat was OK when it comes to tenderness, however, the skin is not that crunchy enough. Maybe not fresh? IDK. The staff were very profesdional and smart. Overall, we didn't enjoy the food and the experience. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant to my friends and families.More

Me and my family just went to this restaurant after promising reviews all over the internet and travel agencies we’ve been in contact to. however tonight I was very disappointed mostly by their service. We tried different dishes (the lechon wasn’t available anymore) and the...taste is pretty good. However the service could need an improvement given the name of the restaurant They delivered the plates separately and slowly one at a time and we got tired waiting. However since it was good we decided to order another set but the waiter that was there just acknowledged us with a nod without even letting us finish speaking. ( he’s a short guy with a wide forehead, not really young) In the end there was no second order as he didn’t take it and we just waited there thinking there was more. Got the bill with 10 empty stomachs. Unbelievable! I have complained to one of the ladies at the cashier but just got a nod as a response. Very disappointing. I wished the would acknowledge every customers equally. We were a simple family in vacation but got treated like nothing while other tables were treated nicely. It’s actually their loss as we spent only php2000 which is so small for 10 people but we could have ordered more. We weren’t satisfied and neither full by it. We were actually planning to go a second time to try their lechon but we won’t anymore considering our experience today. Just because the restaurant is popular with good food doesn’t mean you don’t need to have a good customer service!! That could ruin the customer experience more than the food itself!! P.s The first waiter (tall guy) was actually pretty decent and patient in taking our orders.More

The lechon was okay, nothing to make it stand out from the other lechon places in Cebu. We order some other dishes but they were just average tasting - can't even remember what we ordered.

Good food good service, but we already looked the menu before and decide, when we arrived they didnt have the spicy one and crispy one, so it will only be a 4 for that, otherwise its good

We heard great things about house of lechon so we decided to give it a try, however upon coming here, we noticed the lack of customer service and rudeness coming off from some staff. The staff member that stuck out is Cataquez. She had an...extra item on our order and when we told her and asked about how do we make the vinegar sauce, she pointed to the sauce rack and walked away.....huh? During our meal, it took us forever to get the attention from some the staff to ask them to clear our plates or even clean our table,now, this isn’t to say that all staff members are terrible. some were smiling and extremely courteous but Ms. Catequezs attitude felt unwelcoming. Not everyone has to enjoy work but don’t take it out on the customers. The food was okay but the service could be improved.More

Cebu Letchon usually good on its own. but there is always an options for condiments if you want a local taste you can ask the staffs to help you make a "saw-sawan".

Yes there is lumpia but the Cebuano lumpia called ngohiong. Delicious. You must try it if you visit the place.
