Ally's Restobar, Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur

SANTA MARIA, ILOCOS SUR ▬ In terms of lifestyle in the Ilocandias, the town of Santa Maria doesn't fail to impress. Aside from its beautiful Pinsal Falls and the UNESCO World Heritage Church of Nuestra Señora de Asuncion that are attracting travel and adventure-loving millenials, the town has also a growing food and dining scene.

Well, SM Savemore is already in town and believe it or not, this mega-business has stimulated growth around its perimeter. One of the business establishments near it is Ally's Restobar.

Surprisingly, restaurants like this never appeared in towns outside Vigan and Candon for years. The good news here is that the town seemed to have been ready to embrace a new dining scene. For small towns like Santa Maria, fine dining may not be accepted. People would still prefer the traditional. But yeah, Santa Maria is getting there and Ally's Restobar is a good sign.

The exterior displayed catchy red and white colors. Its location is very visible from the national highway. Architecture-wise, it's not impressive. However, why care for the building design if you're looking for food anyway?

Inside is air-conditioned and they have a free WiFi for customers. The staff looked professional. They were dressed well. I swear this restobar has class compared to other restaurants here.

They don't have the menu book though during my visit. Their food offerings were all written on the white board. There were also meals featured on a big tarpaulin but they told me it was "not yet" available. 

We ordered canton guisado for 60 pesos/plate that is good for one person. I think the price was just right considering the size and the convenience inside the restobar. We also ordered halo-halo for 60 pesos.

The interior was spacious. But I noticed they do not have a long table for group business meetings or family dining. It's not an issue anyway if you're just here to dine alone or with someone.

Visit them at Poblacion, Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur. It's located just beside the national highway near the SM Savemore.
