Real Customer Reviews at Calle Brewery:

Rohan Muralee- 08:41 04/07/23
Cool place in the centre of Vigan serving craft beer and food! There were six different beers on the menu of which four were available - all were decent and there was plenty of food on offer too.The sampler was a good and cost effective way of trying all of the beers that were available. Lots of seats available too.

Marc Jimenez- 06:57 03/04/23
Went here around lunch time and saw that they are smoking their meat out front. Food is amazing, their smoked meats are INCREDIBLY tender. It's also relatively cheap for the serving size. Sides are also good, especially the coleslaw. I also enjoyed their craft beer tasters! Street parking is available. I saw some mice and lizards crawling around.

Jomil Delos Reyes- 11:51 02/11/23
5/5! That's still underrated. Wanna know why? Then try it for yourself!Their pork belly is awesome, the white chocolate blond is superb!The beer? Great! A perfect place to fill your tummy and chill out. Bring your dates here, they will love it for sure.

Amihan Antipolo- 04:37 08/28/22
I enjoyed dining in this restaurant, one of the best when in Vigan. Their meat dishes are so huge it is so filling even for big groups. The staff are all very warm and nice, serve very well. The place is very cozy, blends well with what you expect when you visit Vigan. It's also near the touristic Calle Crisologo. This is resto is recommended.

Danilo Abiday- 11:55 07/17/22
Place is very cozy. Dining area is big enough. The building is an old building approx 100yrs. old as you can see the evidence 1meter (3'3") wall with timber beams and flooring on second floor. They serve bèef steaks and other mouth watering foods. They have their own beer brewery which the crew tour us there. Me and my son are both driving so we just tasted 4 flavors of very satisfying beers. My sister also taste the beer.The crew were so polite they entertained us very well. Our experience there exceptionally very good.

Real Customer Reviews at Casa Jardin Empanada & Okoy:

rose infante- 03:26 05/09/23
For some reason their empanada is a notch higher than other empanadas I've tried. Same simple ingredients, but the taste of their dough and batter for the okoy, they did it right. The service is a little slow, but the taste, price, and ambience makes up for it.

Rohan Muralee- 06:58 04/07/23
Great freshly made Vigan empanadas! The place has a lot of seating both covered and uncovered, but it's very popular so you may have to wait for a table.Tried three different empanadas and they were all good, although I enjoyed the double all meat the best!

Aldrin Alo- 08:22 03/23/23
My main objective when I visited Vigan is to find the best empanada and yes I did find it! This rustic themed eatery serves the best empanada in the whole of Vigan. They're made fresh as they will cook right in front of you. They also served one of the best Okoy, easy top three for me.What we ordered:Empanada KingDouble double special all meatBagnet EmpanadaOkoy

Rocky Acot- 16:11 07/27/22
Note: This is a delayed post, and I'm hoping this restaurant didn't sustain a lot of damage from today's July 27,2022 earthquake.My cousin who's also a restaurateur from Vigan took me to this top-rated empanada eatery in Vigan. And it did not disappoint!I can now classify Vigan empanadas as street food, and gourmet. This eatery does gourmet.This eatery tries to elevate the Vigan empanadas to a whole new level of gustatory bliss, set in a historical, almost -romantic setting. They are at the highest price range of the empanada kingdom, but it shows in the size of their empanadas.... Not to mention the unlimited chopped onion that they provide you.However, I was not too thrilled with their version of okoy. I'm searching for a particular style of okoy- this is not it, but not bad either.If only they served cold beers to go with the empanadas!

Greg Carter- 05:23 05/04/22
Great example of the local cuisine. Cheap and filling and good flavours. Very popular place so you’ll have to wait a little.

Jodi Lee- 12:00 05/03/22
Round the corner from Crisologo is a great empanada place. Almost self service place where you order from the counter and they will deliver to you. Plenty of tables inside and out. Had the king and the special all meat and an okoy. Tasty with the salt and vinegar.

Real Customer Reviews at Irene's Vigan Empanada - Crisologo:

Aby G- 13:22 03/07/23
Ordered the combo special which had both bagnet and longganisa in addition to the egg and veggies. BEST EMPANADA among all that we had. Freshly made by order and worth the wait. Their wrapper is very fluffy, flaky and buttery, almost like a savory croissant empanada wrapper type.Already craving one as I’m writing this 🫠

Jonathan Taño- 09:44 02/03/23
I was alone when I visited. The Empanada is the best! Though it's very oily. You should eat it right away or else the oil will spread and the food will be soft.Just a typical carinderia that you see.

C San Diego- 05:08 11/29/22
Empanada tasted good. Both the pork (Vigan longanisa) for 50pesos or the special empanada with bagnet for 60pesos.You can opt to have it heated.Vinegar is sour for my taste. But surprisingly compliments the empanada.Empanada is crispy, papaya is the main vegetable with 1 whole egg. Size is alright. Their empanada has a generous amount of vigan longanisa compared to some empanada I have tried.

Biyahe Ni Chichoy- 14:43 09/18/22
I loved their Sinanglao, it was my first time to try it and made me want for more. Unfortunately I was not impressed with the special pork longganisa empanda, I honestly liked the empanada from Kapurpurawan (Pagudpud) better 🙂 Their okoy was quite oily as well. But the place was chill, and their staff were friendly.

Ching Pangilinan- 12:44 02/23/20
The iconic empanada of Vigan finds its best home in this humble eatery. My favorite meal is the combo jumbo for 100 pesos, a whole meal in one empanada that includes hefty servings of longanisa, bagnet, vegetables, and egg, deeply fried to crunchy perfection. Also has great service, they delivered my orders for free at our hotel since there was a wait when I ordered.

Erick Corocoto- 13:05 04/09/23
First of all, the barbecue is though as a leather shoe, and for the price? Not worth it, a nearly 1.5k meal that first makes you sleep waiting for it before they serve it, then serve you the though meat meal, is not worth it. SERVING MORE FAT THAN MORE MEAT IS TRASH MOVE FOR THE PRICE. SHUT IT DOWN!

Rachel Killock- 15:18 02/10/23
Visited last night with my family while in vigan and 4 out of 5 of us got FOOD POISONING!!The reviews looked okay and it was busy so we thought give the place a go.Dishes ordered -Chicken bbqBagnetDinakdakenLiempoBagnet kare kareRice4 out of 5 of our family members the following day have had food poisoning symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting, fever/chills and severe stomach cramps.The one person not ill only ate their own meal choice and is unaffected!This has completely ruined the trip to vigan and as a result we have had to extend another night here and pay out additional accommodation due to not being able to travel as family members need to be in close proximity to bathroom facilities!I do not recommend!

Ace Ryan Jamorabon- 16:36 10/27/22
This place is great at night!!The food was great. The place is lively. I believe famous actors have been also to this place.The downside is, the toilet stinks and unsanitary. Better take your business somewhere else.

Gee Dee- 16:37 04/26/22

Restaurant ambiance is relaxing. Nice to eat and talk with friends.Food has generous serving.- for sharing is good for 3 persons. Simply delicious.-Nachos is good. It has big jalapeno toppings, cheese, tomatoes and beef. Extra beef toppings is only 45pesos.Nacho chips is very crunchy.Milk tea salted caramel- very sweet. Creamy. Needs more ice.Had dinner on a Monday. Already closed at 9PM.

Jap Guarin- 10:27 10/25/22
I saw reviews saying they they have reasonable price. When you check the menu, maybe you’ll say the same. But… wait until you get the servings. I did not find it “enough”.Saving grace though is I loved all their pasta. Their bagnet sinigang is bomb, then again, when they say it’s for sharing…lie.Drinks are okay, except the milk teas which are damn too sweet.Place is nice. Service is okay.

Christian Wawrinovsky- 09:54 07/25/22
Nice for take out and nest time for visit more on afternoon before evening after lunchtime. Great fries onion rings and coffee are my favorites there.Good location on the center from vigan! One from best choices!

Engelbert Tabones- 06:06 04/18/22
Excellent location with lovely interiors. We just didn't get to order much, but so far we liked it. I can't wait to go back and try their hot chocolate.

Kenneth Lingan- 08:58 12/29/21
This is a great way to end your tour of Vigan. Conveniently located at the end of Calle Crisologo. Their food is good value. Great ambience. The place is packed when we went so expect some waiting time. I would recommend the Bagnet Tofu sisig and pares. But of course when in Vigan, order the Ilocano food platter.

Wow! An incredibly big menu to choose from, yet the food was extremely good! Very filling and for a crazy cheap price! Will eat here again!

Leny Grace Garcia- 15:15 07/02/22
This cafe is conveniently located along the entrance of Calle Crisologo. When we got here, it’s like we travelled back to 1800’s as this place is preserved and it is one of the oldest houses in Vigan.We tried their Poque-poque and Cafe Leona Native Special which consists of Bangus, Longganisa, Bagnet, Pinakbet and Rice. One of their staff said that their Native Special is good for one but it can actually be shared by two persons, just order additional rice. Their selections are fairly priced and they serve these generously. Overall, we enjoyed our delicious foods. We would love to visit here again and try their other foods.

Allain Jing World Travel- 00:42 04/03/22
Once you enter here in Cafe Leona. Get ready for time travel to year 1884. Place is preserve, food is delicious, amazing people. One of the oldest house here in Vigan. A must visit here.

Erl D- 04:55 03/13/22
Conveniently located along the entrance of Calle Crisologo, near the Plaza. I love the heritage house ambiance of this restaurant, as well as the outdoor seating. There's usually a queue since many tourists eat here but the wait is worth it. Food is great! I love the Vigan Express we ordered. Their selections are fairly priced, generous serving, and taste really good. A must-try restaurant when you're in Vigan. Will definitely eat here again and try more dishes.

McRey Banderlipe II- 12:05 12/27/21
Cafe Leona is a must place to dine whenever you are in Vigan. Due to its popularity, expect a long queue in their guest list and long waiting time before your food is served. It really tastes good though. Please be patient with the staff handling your orders and preparing your food.

This is a heritage street in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. You find different businesses and establishments here maintaining its heritage beauty. Nice to have photo ops here in the day or night. You can ride the famous kalesa here and it can tour you around Vigan. Must visit this place as tourism really helps this place.

Camille Arandil- 09:03 09/04/22
The buildings and road design of the area gave me the impression that I had traveled back in time to an 80s movie. Because of its beauty, history, and safety, this area is a good place to stay.May we Filipinos never grow weary of preserving our culture and showcasing it to tourists that come to our country.

binsenteu sarang- 07:29 06/20/22

Engelbert Tabones- 11:34 04/18/22
It's best at night, but it's also good to walk here in the mornings and buy taho. I prefer this place during regular nights (and not on a holiday) when you can enjoy the place with few people around.Get your good cameras ready, because it's picturesque. You can park by the cathedral or in some curbside that allows parking and just enjoy it while walking.

Kay.Tolentino Gaspar- 12:02 04/10/22
One of the best preserved heritage site in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Century old houses built during the Spanish era and owned by wealthy families lined up the famous cobblestone Street. Totally awed by the site of old houses; some well maintained and preserved and used as stores, etc., while some houses were completely abandoned and maybe forgotten. I'm pretty sure that each house holds a lot of stories and memories. One of the must visit when in Vigan. Late afternoon or early evening is the best time to visit. Just be sure to wear comfy shoes to enjoy the place.

Real Customer Reviews at Max's Restaurant:

Edson Martinez- 10:51 05/03/23
Great food as always, maxs is very consistent....16 people ate and got full for about 8000 pisos...not bad

Faye Remiline Galang- 06:07 03/15/23
This Maxs branch is absolutely adorbs and unique! Strategically placed in a corner of calle crisologo, it was perfectly housed in an old structure which added oomph to the otherwise blah ambience of a restaurant. Glass mirrors allow you to sightsee people walking by, as well as the stores nearby.The space maybe felt a little tight but it was alright.

Dean Stanley- 05:41 02/14/23
A little disorganized staff, hard to understand menu, food is decent but overpriced for what it is, Philippino friend also could not identify menu items made up names with no explanation, I think assuming they are such an institution of course you know... pretentious.

Pascual Jerome Pattaui- 12:53 12/17/22
It's a sad experience dining here. After waiting for long to be seated, we were served the saltiest pancit we've ever had. We had to send it back to the kitchen. Portions were ridiculous. Check out how small this "regular" chicken is. 1 star.

Raul Benjamin- 21:14 12/02/22
I appreciate their obliging to take advanced orders through their hotlime number (here in Google Maps).The Lechong Kawali Kare-Kare's price is unjustified, and lacks meat. Sizzling Tofu will always be a favorite paired with rice.Crowd may be plenty during peak-seasons and holidays.

Average food for average prices. Ambiance is okay and the staff are attentive to guests. We ordered:buttered mussels - 3/5, old stockigado - 4/5, tastes goodsinanglao - 2/5, blandtsokolate de vigan/hot choco- 3/5We also occupied a table for 6 persons but there were only 3 of us. They did not remove the other 3 sets of utensils until we were done eating. They only dished out the soiled ones and kept the others where they were - unsanitary. limited parking is available in front of the restaurant. The restaurant is generally clean.

breakfast here was better compared to our previous hotel.only issue I had is that they leave unused cutleries and glasses on the table, if you use a table for 6, they won't remove the other 4 pairs of cutleries and glasses, after your meal, they will remove the 2 pairs you used and the next guest will use the 4 pairs you did not use. not good during these times.my wife loved the fruits they served. unlimited black coffee. good and friendly staff.

First time in Vigan, all the way from germany. The line in front of the shop forms for a reason. Sinanglao was on point. The perfect breakfast to get you through a hot sunny day in Ilocos.

joel anthony Gutierrez- 23:00 12/25/22
Super delicious Sinanglao. No wonder there is a long line here. Unlimited soup and you get to choose which parts you want. Ample serving too.

Erick RO- 05:35 05/10/22
We came all the way from the South (somewhere in Cavite). My cousin and her husband, wanted to taste the best dishes of Ilocos Region. Since we’re here in Vigan, there’s no better way to start the day with a very late breakfast of Sinanglaw. Sabaw pa lang panalo na! It was a first for them and they liked it! Even my 10 year old nephew and chief cook uncle loved it! Extra soup and extra rice was badly requested! Their resto only serve Sinanglaw, Arozcaldo, unli soup, rice and soft drinks. A must try Ilocos dish whenever you are here up North! 👌🏻❤️ Btw, this is a new location.

Carlo Andrew Olano- 02:43 08/13/19
This is one of the places that I will always visit when I am in Vigan. For me, this one of the best offals soups in the Philippines. It's so hearty and it is a favorite meal along locals to start a busy day. You can eat unusual meat cuts and organs like heart , and testicles. If you are adventurous with food then this is the place to be in Vigan.
