“good food but....”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

My king Jimh and I stopped here at Ayala branch for lunch....we love the food and the ambient. Only 1 thing surprising and disgusting was when we ordered for ceasar salad it was not that "ceasar" the dressing is the tropical island which is not that way and its unusual that its not mix yet...so we just asked for olive oil n cider......and please no sweeping and mopping floor while guests were eating

“Great Food, Great Place”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The restaurant serves Filipino food. It is located at the Terraces of Ayala Mall and their front door is just a few steps from where you get down from your car. This is convenient for elderly and those with young children. It has 2 floors where the first floor serves the dining guests while the 2nd floor is usually used for functions.

The first floor’s layout is simple, seats are neatly arranged and window glass walled the two sides of the place where you see the different establishments of the Mall, while the other side peeks through the driveway.

We ordered our favorites and our best orders according to taste were: Crispy Pata, Lumpia, Kare-Kare (Beef) seafood is better though, Shrimp Sinigang, fried chicken and Leche Flan. Their Buco Juice is very refreshing and a must try!

Staff is very attentive. Our orders were served between 15-20 minutes.

Price is affordable.

Recommending this place for family and friends who enjoy Filipino food.

“Same with others Restaurant”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

I ate here twice, in SM and Ayala. They served same foods with other authentic Filipino restaurant, same taste. small serving size. Halo-halo same taste with other restaurant, crispy pata same taste with other restaurant, in short this restaurant is forgettable. I could not find any dish here that would remind me to come back.

“Nice place, good food, good service.. Everything you need for a good experience.”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Cafe Laguna in Cebu and in Cagayan. We also visited both branches in Cebu at Ayala and SM Malls.
We keep coming back because we always
leave happy and satisfied.
The food is always good and the service is always quick, attentive and smiling.

There is really nothing negative to comment here! Will keep coming back :-)
