    First time at Latino, it opened already a while ago. Mostly Spanish and Italian food and also some Asian style, always sounds good. Located at the National south road in Dumaguete, just a door in the wall from outside, but when we went inside we were really positively surprised. Very nice ambience, decorative items everywhere, chinese style red balloon lamps makes it a cozy place to stay. The food was simply great, asawa had Spaghetti Carbonara with ribs and was very happy, couldn't finish the huge portion, take-out was no problem. My Thai chicken with peanuts and veggies was also great. Short waiting time for serving about 20 minutes, perfect. We got each a complimentary Sangria home made style, I do not drink that stuff normally, but this was nice because it was not too sweet. All that fresh cooked food ended with a very reasonable, not to say cheap bill. A really satisfying dining experience, unexpected. Had a talk with the owner, a nice guy from Barcelona in Spain, he is obviously running his spot with passion. Conclusion: After the Spanish colonized the Philippines for about 400 years, they are back; but for much better purposes :-)

    Went out for diner yesterday evening @Latino. With the help of @PatO directions easy to find not in the last by the clear and visible name in the front. Had a drink and order some food (fried Tuna). The SML on the right temparature and the food of good taste. What I do like in a place like this, the owner himself is there to see the guests are happy and content. Visited other restaurants in Dumaguete during the 12 yrs I stay here and up till date still do not know who's the owner, so actually a lack of interest of who's frequenting their business.

    Good Evening Jimeve. Thank you.
    We open 7 days a week from 11.30 am til 1am. If you see the signage "OPEN" it's mean that we are inside, even if the first door is close.

    We enjoyed our evening there last night. As a previous poster mentioned very surprised once door opened to see the amazing decor and red colours, certainly different.
    The Spanish owner was very open an attentive, he was often at table clearing plates away an chatting. Very nice guy.
    Beware the portions are enormous, biggest experienced, after we shared a starter both of us were full. We did partake in a main how ever left totally full. Owner treated us to a coffee an a Spanish snaps before leaving.
    One thing to note is the emphasis is definitely on karaoke which may not suit everyone, as soon as 8pm came he gave my partner a song book an encouraged her to sing. We are not into this but many could well be.
    It was very quiet, we had the large resto pretty much alone.
    Quality of food was fresh an good, for our tastes would of preferred it spiced up, still this could be Spanish style, you will not leave hungry.....
