So what happened to this restaurant? They now have two restaurants in the Ayala Mall- Cafe Laguna and Laguna Garden Cafe. We tried both. We came back here after a memorable dining experience many years ago. Completely transformed into a non-destination restaurant chain serving mediocre Filipino dishes. We tried different dishes from their menu. The food were overcooked, dry, or... More

Every time I come home, I never fail to eat here. The Lumpia Sariwa (fresh spring roll) is healthy, filling and delicious. This is where you will find Filipino comfort food that will remind do you of your childhood. Worth the wait. I ate at their Ayala and SM Seaside outlets.

Meal was ok. I had gone with a group. Waiter helpful but the service was very slow. Also I had asked for my meal to be served hot. But when I received the meal it was barely warm. I got fed up of waiting for waiter to come over,instead I went up to service area to get matter resolved.

The food are reasonably priced but what I like about the place that you can have one to ten guests and you will feel that the area is well laid out and the place cool escape from the heat on a very hot day. I enjoyed the choices in their menu. I see guests always smiling and enjoying their food... More

We attended a function upstairs. The food was well prepared and the chicken and roast pork was excellent. The potato salad was a joy to eat BUT there the good part ended. Table settings were not complete. The waiters were not very attentive. We had to continually try to get their attention to refill our water. After we had eaten... More

The restaurant offers Afternoon Tea but instead of the English style that we are all too familiar with, they offer it with a local flair. They had a choice of Pandan or Ginger teas. And instead of scones and finger sandwiches, they had bit size, puto bumbong, cassava cakes, bibingkas, little kuapaos. Beware though... the place is always packed with... More

We reserved a function room for a company dinner. Despite pre-oredering, our food arrived almost an hour after we arrived. The waiters didn't seem to be attentive at all and was out of the function room most of the time. The Bill took a really long time too and we had to go down to the cashier to check what... More
