The waiters dont know what is available on the menu. Brought only 1/2 the order. Brought desert before the entree. The desert melted. The lasagna portion so small. The bill was over 1200 php for TWO people. Not worth it at all. Not again.

The place has such a good ambience. The food is good, too. The coffee drinks are also great. But you have to wait for 30 minutes to order, another hour for the food. They are so undermanned, unusual for a place that costs as much as fine dining. You'd be really hungry by the time you get to eat. :(

Their Spanish dishes are excellent especially lengua and callos. Chef Cathy is very accommodating. Their chocolate moist cake is also a favorite.

On our last day in Dipolog, our friend and gracious host brought us to this quaint little cafe. We were quite famished since we weren't able to have our lunch and it was already dinner time. Surprisingly their dishes were sumptuous and filling. Pork sisig was delish and their fried lumpia was amazing. Pancit canton, pochero and calamares were soso...... More

Cafe Isabelle has always been a place of comfort for me, the restaurant is hassle free since they accept all major credit cards. The place has a good ambiance for a coffee break in the afternoon or that 2-bot night out with friends. You guys have to try their Sizzling Bulalo, Sardines Pasta and Molo Soup (yes, you can order...

A cafe that Dipolog deserves. Calm and relaxing ambiance, excellent dessert choices, and flavorful mains. Coffees are great. I've been a fan to this place since they opened. Their bakery stands out to others in Dipolog. You may visit here solo, with friends or family, they have a table for you. When you want to disconnect in the city, this... More

I had dinner here with the hosts who invited me to do a business seminar. They have a wide enough menu for the 1st time Filipino food diner but not so wide to be confusing. The pinoy basicc were there... sisig, bulalo, tapa. I tried the lengua which was a pretty large serving for the average pinoy. Very good too.... More

So far I've only been in for coffee, which is great! It's just up the road from where we're living now, so sure to return many times. I'll review their dinners as soon as I've tried!
