Location: If you get hungry while shopping in Ayala Center, you can try this place. Air-conditioned, and clean. But very crowded during lunch/dinner hours. So many people and VERY loud. If you're looking for a quiet place to eat, don't come here. Service: The worst ever. They seated us in a table where water was dripping down from a broken... More

We were a group of 7 and we have Pilipino food. Their fresh lumpia was very nice so is their grilled tanigue. Tried the buko pandan but is too sweet for my taste. Overall average for the price we paid

Since I moved here in Cebu, Cafe Laguna's foods is my favorite. The taste did not change. I love their crispy pata, fresh lumpia, sabaw sa miso, puto bongbong and all other foods. So far I never had any complain of their foods and the staff are all well trained. I highly recommend this restaurant to tourists and Cebu locals.

Had a chance to dine at Cafe Laguna in Ayala Centre for a lunch on a Sunday. They serve authentic Filipino food. The food quality is really good and the service is nice. The ambiance is pleasant and overall a very good dining experience.

The restaurant was full when we visited and had to wait for about 15 minutes. It was worth it with the delicious selection of local dishes especially the crispy pata, pinakbet, pusit, and hipon sinigang.

This is where you find the best fresh lumpia, crispy pata & kare-kare in town. So many to choose from on their menu. I love their food and my favorite dessert is banana turon. The restaurant & toilet are well maintained & clean. The staff are nice & friendly. Hope to be there next year again.

Been here on and off through the years. Food is very inconsistent. although in general it is good. Would probably avoid the seaweed salad and the raw fish with vinegar ( ceviche )

Ate dinner on a Thursday evening. Restaurant was at full capacity (a good sign!). Excellent Filipino dishes and the service was wonderful. Reasonably priced and good location. Will definitely return there next time I'm in Cebu. Highly recommended.
