After a long drive from Manila to Pangasinan, this place is a great place to stop and have hearty Filipino food. Loved the pork knuckle! Have it with some local beer and rice to make your day!

Located just beside Robinsons Place Pangasinan. This place is very accessible and a must visit restaurant if you are in Dagupan, Pangasinan. The ambiance here is nice, very relaxing, it's as if you are just at home.

It wasn't our first and maybe it won't be our last cos it's nearby, it's a bit pricey here so if you're looking for a cheaper dining place then this is not your resto. Food is ok, some are our fave local dish but the service sometimes is bad esp when there are a lot of guests:(

Good food as always! 😃 Love the ambiance, bangus and other Filipino good. One of the best restaurant in town. A must try food. I always buy pre-packed bangus and othet native products.

Good food, especially their crispy pata which was very meaty. I was told it was from the front legs not the hind leg which kind'a surprised me. I recommend this place for fine dining.

Dagupena is an old restaurant although not that old since they moved to a new location, they used to be in Dagupan. I wasn't impressed with the service, food was ok, but you're paying for the name. They could do better service, and remodel the place a bit.

Without looking at the reviews, the locals told me that this restaurant was one of the The best and also classy. From the outside it looks more like a house than a restaurant. The inside was pretty nice. Old world charm from when it first opened in 1928. Pictures frame the walls. The waiter was pretty quick in taking our... More

It may be the top of mind for most of the locals (probably because it's an old resto) but it certainly left me a bad impression. Place was dark. Restroom is awful. Good serving is like what you get in a carenderia - smaller proportions. Not-so impressive on the tastebuds yet they charge you much. Overhyped and it fell short.

Glad to be back and enjoy their delicious bangus al ajillo and lechon kawali again. I guess the houseflies are really part of the experience. But candles, when requested to drive them off, were provided by the staff. I just wish they could find ways to eradicate them once and for all.

We really enjoyed tye authentic foods here plus the retro ambience. However, waiters were taking much time on giving menu and delivering orders. My desserts took around another 15 minutes to serve only to found out that its just on the freezer near to us. Average feedback from me. PS: I love the bangus. Panalo!
