“Below expectations”

Papa Dong's Cine Resto Grill
Ranked #1 of 3 Restaurants in Lingayen
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 June 2018 via mobile

We ordered scallops (which is not really a scallop) according to the server, 1 fried hito (nothing special but pwede na), 1 beef with cabbage (special according to them) and papa dongs fried race that over powered the taste of all the dishes due to strong buttery taste. Food is not that good but seems to be that there is no competitor around so locals may have limited choices.

We did not order for drinks since they only cater for RC brand and none from my family is drinking this brand. We ask the server that we are going to drink the coke that we have in our car but she came back to us that they will charge us for the cost of ice (really?!).

Over-all this place is only good if you wanted to put something in your stomach but dont expect anything more than that.

Staff were accommodating including the owner who was very humble.
The food was bountiful for the price, we all left with a contented tummy.

The seafood is their specialty.

Papa Dong’s food was very good. The Grilled squid, Pinakbet, and Chop suey was delicious.
We chose to order take out because it was too hot and humid to eat outside. The restaurant is not fully enclosed. It is like eating outdoors. Also, mosquitos and flies.
The restaurant itself looked clean. The staff was very accommodating and kind. We shall return!

I found this as the #1 Lingayen resto in TripAdvisor and it didn't disappoint. Staff is friendly and they serve the food fast! We ordered their sizzling bangus sisig, chicken skin chicharon, cheese scallops, sinigang na hipon, fried hito and halo-halo. They were all delicious and fresh! Prices are also reasonable. Saturday lunch there was a singer to serenade (grateful that the singer's performance was tasteful and not tacky). Also like their open area and indoor layout because it gives a relaxed vibe. I recommend this place to any visitor in Lingayen.

After a long day, we came accross this resto-grill. The place had friendly security and staff.

We ordered the sinigang liempo and sizzling bangus belly and lemonade. The lemonade was priced at Php70. Beside us, a couple was served a pitcher of lemonade. We got envious so decided to change our order to a pitcher instead. Little did we know that all drinks were served in pitchers!

The meal came after 20mins. The meal was good and worth it. Bill was Php460.
