The long trip to paoay was well worth it.
Try the ribs, smoke bacon.
Everything in made in house.
This is a must when you visit Paoay. The view of the church is a great bonus.

Came here for dinner, and the Old majestic Paoay Church was lit up. Servers were very attentive and efficient. Ambiance is absolutely amazing with a great view of the plaza and the old Church. The greatest thing, though , about Smoke is the FOOD!!! Had the bagnet and the pulled lamb...... MUST, MUST try restaurant in Ilocos!!!

We been for dinner with a group of seven, which was no issue to have a table prepared in minutes, even it was main meal time and the restaurant was quite occupied.
The menu has a good selection even it has only a limited variety.
Food quality is good, typical bbq flavours, portions are adapted to the culture and for none locals on the smaller size.
All meats tasted have been well marinated and very tender when tasted, some meat are smoked and that done inhouse by the „american chef“.
Service was very attentive, yet friendly and we did not have to wait for anything.

Room for improvements are the deserts, the kalamasi tart was rather small, and so was the spiced chocolate cake each came by a size of 1‘ x 0.5‘ but very tasty indeed. The dutch waffles with ice cream are served like in holland, do no expext real fluffy waffles, they are served with the thin waffer traditional kind of the real thing.
Prices are reasonable for quality, size and service offered.
Some menu items you can purchase raw, for cooking at home, they do their own bacon and other meat dishes, they also have a good selection of crafted beers.
Bonus point is the excellent view of the Paoay church right next to it, a „UNESCO heritage“, just beautiful at night with all the lights on.
Would we return, you can bet on it.
