(I am reviewing their Sta. Cruz, Laguna site since it's not yet listed on TripAdvisor.)
You might be wondering why 50/50:

Very good. It's just across the street from Sta Cruz Provincial Capitol, you'll never have issues finding it. This branch is a little small compared to their other branches, but they still offer a small parking space for customers who brought their own vehicles.
You'll immediately feel the cool temperature upon entering. While it was very hot and humid outside, inside was cool and comfortable. The lighting was also on point, not very bright, but not very dim. It was warm and cozy. We were seated comfortably, and we didn't feel like sardines even with the close proximity of the tables and chairs.
We ordered a bunch of their best sellers that included Crispy Pata. Everything tasted good, the presentation was okay, but serving size can be improved. No complaints here.

Oh, it was unbearable. Like there were only three tables occupied out of I think, 10, but the serving time/cooking/preparation was definitely one of the worst I've had to date. It took them around 40 minutes just to serve the appetizer, plain rice, and soup. Guess how long we waited for the viands? You do the math. This is a no-no for a restaurant that's not even half full. I don't want to imagine the scenario where we dined here on a full house. Oh, the horror of our stomachs wouldn't allow it.
I would still go back, but I doubt the serving time will improve.
