I was so hungry for some local food the time I went to Cafe Leona. When I passed Max restaurant, I was tempted to go in but the home cooking sound made the cafe delicious. I was disappointed! I wish I picked another restaurant.

This was my first time in this restaurant with the family. Gotta love the food, yeah. Mixture of Ilocano, Japanese and Italian fits all in my liking. The place was nice too.

Staffs were friendly however they look ragged. They say that if you have not eaten in Café Leona, you did not went to Vigan. Well, not exactly! You can try but it is not a must! The bangus inihaw that we ordered and waited for almost an hour was served with blood! It was not cooked properly and we have... More

Situated at the head of the main tourist street near the plazas and church. The pizza was excellent and the sausage plate good. German beer!

Dined at this outlet purely based on TA reviews and was let down by slow and inattentive service. Yes, it was the dinner period, however service levels should be rostered for accordingly. My initial meal was served cold and inedible. Credit to cafe for replacing the meal with a better alternative. Waited an eternity for the bill after asking a... More

We happened on to this place mid-way in our stay, but were so impressed we had our next three meals there! They have an extensive menu of Filipino dishes, Japanese and International with a flair toward German and Italian. We had sushi every time, their sushi is fresh and delicious and some of the best wasabi we've ever had. A... More

Be sure to cap your day with dinner in this place. This resto goes way back and they serve authentic northern dishes. This is quite famous so you'll probably have to wait in line, but the ambiance is great. Think of sepia, Spanish era, history...you get the picture.

Because of the good reviews we decided to have our first meal here. They didn't disappoint!! When in the Ilocos region you have to dive into Ilocano cuisine and Cafe Leona delivered in spades...

Want to get the local taste of Ilocandia? Visit Cafe Leona. They offer wide variety of food. The ambiance is very vintage like you are a "Senyor, Senyora, Senyorita, Senyorito" feels. To add up, chipped walls, woods and old lamps adorn the place. Price is a little costly where you can get in a lower rate from other resto.

Thank artistahun
