I had eaten at the Cafe Laguna at the Ayala mall and seaside mall in Cebu. They have a good diverse menu with good food in a clean environment. We decided it have dinner there as we were staying next door. We were the first ones there eating dinner. They had a lot of large tables set up for some... More

Had lunch at this café/resto and i can say the food and service are over rated. We ordered their fried chicken, fish soup and some mango and watermelon shakes. The fish soup was ok but the chicken was so dry you'd have a hard time chewing and swallowing it that you have to sip some soup everytime.. The mango shake,... More

If you're looking for beef, I think Racer has some of the best in Dumaguete. I favor the cheeseburger and the filet mignon. Both are lami.

We held our Mini-Class Batch '76 Reunion here last Aug. 2, 2015. It was a very enjoyable and unforgettable experience. The waiters were very friendly and accomodating. The food, ohhh, the food were very saucy, classy and deliciously savoring to the appetite. From morning to afternoon we had our picture-taking, laughing, conversing and interacting to each other. As if we... More

I loved their paella, kare kare, and lechon kawali. Was a bit disappointed with the crablets coz it wasn't crispy but it tasted okay. The servings were also good and the price was pretty okay. It's located right in the heart of the city so it's near to shopping centers and hotels.

I had high expectations going into the restaurant as the place looked nice and clean and the prices of the food were a bit expensive by Dumaguete standards. Unfortunately, there was nothing special or impressive about the food. Max's or Dencio's serve better food.

We ate here as suggested by our driver. The food was great but nothing special. They served mostly Filipino Foods. The price range was mid-range. The place was clean and decent enough.
