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.

Seriously, I love Laguna. The food here is always good: I've tried the baked scallops, the cucumber salad, the bagoong rice, seafood kare kare, crispy pata, fresh lumpia, pancit bihon, shrimps w/chili sauce, coco shrimps, bangus, buko pandan and halo halo (best halo halo I've ever had, btw). All of it was DELICIOUS and so reasonably priced. The service here... More

Crispy pata, Adobo Kangkang, Chop Suey, Scallops and of course a serving of rice. All food was delicious, the service attentive without being over bearing. This restaurant continues to hold consistently high standards

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.
