One of the more upscale establishments downtown, and a good stop for lunch if you're coming from the museums and historical landmarks near the town plaza. The menu is extensive. Staff recommended the paella, which came with a lot of bagnet and longganisa bits. While it isn't my best meal there it was tasty and very filling, as they use... More

This was a fun dining experience, because on top of the good food that they served they also had us wear stick on mustaches and top hats and took a photo of us channeling the "Juan Luna" vibe. Service was good too. We ordered several dishes, but the miki was my favorite - and I think it says something about... More

We were huge fans of Johnny Moon Cafe and was disappointed when it was closed for a few months. Now that it's open again, we can't help but compare it to how it was before. Food quality isn't that good anymore (with the exception of the Johnny Moon Pasta). Service was quite confusing as they served as a dish we... More

Johnny Moon was closed for about 2 months for renovations, and we used to frequent the "old" establishment when we had business trips here. Service driver told us the place was open under new management, so we decided to pay a visit. Interiors haven't changed much except for addition of cheap tables and chairs (far cry from old Art Deco... More

I visited this place last summer as part of my #SoloBirthdayTravel. Every time I search for a must visit place in Laoag, this place is always part of the search results. It was a very warm afternoon when I arrived Laoag. I took a tricycle from the bus terminal and the tricycle driver is not familiar with this place. Good... More

Laoag is filled with wonderful old stuff and ilokano cuisine proves to be the perfect companion to complete the nostalgic trip in the capital. However, stepping inside Johnny Moon, (or Juan Luna) you'll feel the hip and inventive vibe that the youth of Laoag has to offer. Its a good breather because the place is colorful and cheery. The food... More

This small cafe is a good pit stop after visiting Museo Iloko next door. It was warm, though. Menu is Ilokano food with a little fusion thrown in. If you're tired of the usual empanada, they have ones stuffed with bagnet or dinadaraan. I ordered the bagnet-stuffed one and it arrived crisp with generous fillings. Enough for an afternoon tummy...

And it was ok, service was warm and food is not bad. Can't really comment on their main dishes since wasn't at the right time to order them. Price was ok too.

Have lunch at their Kapurpunawan branch since its the only restaurant located on the entrance to the rock formation area. They served limited menu (being a small branch only), The taste of food served for vacationist from Manila is quite unique

We ate at Johnny Moon Cafe for our dinner.. Their food is good.. with many food options to choose from. The price is reasonable. The happy experience was that they have some mustache and hats for guest to have their Juan Luna feel for picture taking! That's Cool!
