Casa Cecilia Restaurant: Main Dining Area of Casa Cecilia
the Casa Cecilia Boutique Hotel has one main Dining Area, Aptly named the Casa Cecilia Restaurant, located along the Ground Floor, just beside the Check In Counter of the Hotel and it also opens to the huge garden outside which is used for various activities. The Restaurant serves classic Regional Batangas Province Cuisine and other Southern Luzon Dishes and a smattering of National Filipino and International Dishes as well.
Opens: 7:00 am to 10:00 pm everyday
Favorite Dish: you should try the delicious Batangas Regional Cuisine like the exotic Sinigang sa Maliputo (Giant Trevally) at 90 pesos per 100 grams per order, the regional Batangas Adobo Sa Dilaw (made with turmeric instead of garlic and soy sauce) at 240 pesos an order, Tapang Taal (cured pork meat instead of cured sirloin beef) at 280 pesos an order and other regional southern luzon specialties. They also have various cocktail drinks spiked with the local coconut vodka, the lambanog at 180 pesos an order.

Restaurant? What Restaurant?!
There is no restaurant on the island but residents on the island are willing to kill, dress and cook a chicken for you for the right price. There is also one who is willing to scoop up tilapia from his fish pen and cook it for you for a fee (P100/kg + P100 cooking fee-price negotiable). You will have to order your food before ascending to the crater as it will take them an hour to prepare your food.
We opted to give this so-called privilege a miss as the people there started to get pushy when we wanted to have some fish cooked for us. The aggro was just not worth the experience of eating on the island.
I would suggest that you pack a sandwich, some fruits and drinking water with you when you visit the volcano.
