    I really wasn't impressed with any of the dishes except for the camote bread. For all the hype there is about this place, we expected so much more. The food wasn't good at all. The service also subpar

    Great place but takes forever to serve your order. Despite of being overly staffed.

    Ruins longganisa for breakfast is a must! ❤ We got here pretty early so we were the only table being served, lol. Service and food was great! 😊

    Love their version of turon with the twist and Pancit Palabok. The Best! For sure I'll comeback to taste it again! :) <3

    You would want to try their carabao yoghurt with either special jam or fresh fruit of your choice. Don't forget to ask for honey which seals the yummy taste.

    HUGE servings and really good coffee. Just make sure you make reservations because the place gets kind of packed during regular mealtimes.

    A must try, when in Baguio! Go for the selection of fresh breads, with one of their great spreads.

    I don't know if the cook was just having a bad day when I went here, but the food was just blah. Tapa's way too tough and too dry. 😪😢

    Crowded! We were 7th in line, and wait was expected to be around 30 minutes. So we opted to walk around and find other places to eat.

    The food is good, but it's best to set your expectations right. The restaurant is big on organics and natural produce, so expect the food to be a bit on the bland side.

    Although I cannot still understand why anybody would price a Bagnet at 340 freaking pesos, it was good. Plus points for food presentation. Another plus for the live band music in jazz for dinner.

    Bagnet baguio and Pinikpikan are definitely a must try. And for my caffeine fix, I tried their Ruins coffee which hardly ruined my appetite.

    Line up early we got wait listed for around 30 minutes! Nevertheless the food was still great loved the salad and their bagnet. Lemonade was too sour though.

    One of the best places to chill down in the downtown area. They have great food offerings especially the bagnet.

    Baguio Bagnet for dinner.. the pork belly itself has no taste.. I think it was not marinated.. #PadasBagoong is perfect for sauce & #TomatoRelish is good as salad.. the #Sinigang is SPICY!!

    Ruins' Fillet Mignon ... I do have a picky tongue when it comes to taste of food.. but this one is really good...👍👏

    The Ruins Coffee.. theres an aftertaste of #cardamon.. mint flavor a little bit.. I guess most coffee lovers will love this same as me 😊

    their Ensaymada is not that good to my tastebuds.. my standard of a delicous ensaymada is the one from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 😁 sorry for this one... 😉

    I like the ambience of the place. The food is ok. I tried Tia Olympia's fresh lumpia & was surprised by the serving. I like how the veggies were cooked but I think the sauce needs improvement.

    I eagerly ordered their Tapuey but to much of my dismay, it was over-fermented and tasted like vinegar (my stomach is still sore from its acidity). On the plus side, waiters were courteous.

    too pricey.tapey tasted like pure vinegar,tomato basil had no basil, chicken was very dry,strawberry shake tasted like milk sugar.Seems like d chef is having a bad day. Its good they have wifi tho 😋
  • Raymond Patrick M.
