    JOSEPHINE - TAGAYTAY: JOSEPHINE - TAGAYTAY

    by DarleneCMF Updated Jul 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Voted Restaurant of the Year (Provincial) in the 11th Philippine Kalakbay Awards.

    Josephine Restaurant in Tagaytay used to be the only place where we would take visitors to a few years ago. Now there's a host of other restaurants along the ridge overlooking Taal Lake but this remains popular because of the ambience, food selection, and the fact that the restaurant is enclosed (glass walls) so the wind does not bother the diners.

    Order the Mutya ng Cavite, creamy soup with assorted seafood. My latest discovery is the tuna sisig, which is ver succulent and delicious.

    They have weekend breakfast buffet at P220 and lunch buffet at P295.

    BAG OF BEANS: BAG OF BEANS: COFFEE + RELAXING ATMOSPHERE

    by DarleneCMF Updated Jun 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bag of Beans is a coffeehouse++ located right on the highway in Tagaytay. What you first see is a small shop where they sell pies, bread and coffee. There's a few seats where you can enjoy your food and drinks, but you can take the steps downstairs to the garden where there are kiosks (screened) and open seating areas. It's has a very relaxing atmosphere, the decors are rustic/country, overall conducive to conversation (read: dates).

    So now comes the food. :) There are a lot of choices for drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cold drinks) and bread and pastries. I had the bottomless kapeng barako (local brewed coffee) and cinammon and raisin bread, which were good, and reasonbly priced too. By that I mean way cheaper than Starbucks. I was there with a group of friends and it was the combination of great company and ambience that made me enjoy the visit immensely.

    Favorite Dish: Coffee

    YELLOW CAB

    by DarleneCMF Updated Jun 20, 2006

    This is a franchise of the popular pizza chain. The food is the same, but it's a welcome change from all the local food (Dencios', Leslie's, RSM, etc) in Tagaytay. This is still overlooking Taal Lake but not a very scenic one because it's recessed, compared to the restaurants on both sides so the view is obstructed by walls...

    Good food. :)

    Favorite Dish: I liked the NYC pizza. I didn't like the Jackie Chan pasta because the flavor was overwhelming, also too spicy for me.

  • Bag of Beans: Cheesecake Like No Other

    by snux_849 Written Jun 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bag of Beans is a coffee shop that serves good coffee, British bread and pies. They also have pasta on their menu. It has a relaxing garden setting, a real nice place to spend an afternoon idly and enjoy Tagaytay's cool weather.

    Favorite Dish: I like cheesecakes but I am not really a huge fan-- until I tried Bag of Beans' Blueberry cheesecake. Their cheesecake is so creamy, pretty much like ice cream. I have not had cheesecake with this consistency and it is just so heavenly. It melts in your mouth. Oooohhh! Can I please have another slice??? Goes well with their brewed coffee.

    Cheescake like no other.

    DENCIO'S: PINOY FOOD

    by moonlighting Updated May 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love this place because when it gets fully crowded, you won't actually feel it. I don't know why, suddenly one becomes oblivious, I guess. More importantly, it's got a good view of Taal Volcano (see attached photo).

    Service is fast, but you don't get the feeling that the food has been pre-cooked. Prices are reasonable. Less expensive compared to Antonio's or Lesly's.

    Staff is friendly and helpful.

    Favorite Dish: (prices as of May 21, 2006)

    PRAWN SINIGANG P168 Prawns used are fresh, soup is really tangy.

    CRISPY PATA P250 (reg) Freshly fried

    SISIG SUPREME P150

    PINAKBET P100 Fresh vegetables used, yummy bagoong

    WATERMELON SHAKE P50

  • Kitaro: Japanese Food

    by snux_849 Written Apr 30, 2006

    The restaurant offers a good view of the Taal lake and volcano. They have an area for alfresco dining where it is nice to enjoy the view and the cool Tagaytay breeze. They serve their good food really hot... but their service is kinda slow probably because they are under staffed. It took them a little over 30 minutes to serve our orders. Sure, Kitaro has many branches in Metro Manila but the ambience makes it all different.

    Favorite Dish: Tempura, Beef Yakiniku

    You should take this notice seriously.

  • Sonya's Secret Garden: Fresh Salad

    by snux_849 Updated Jan 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love the food and the tranquility of the place. Have an early or late lunch to enjoy the restaurant's sernenity. Good service.

    Favorite Dish: The salad is great. Fresh veggies, picked from their garden. The chicken pasta is yummy. Even though they serve the same set meal over and over again (i.e. the menu is fixed, does not change at all), I still look forward to drop by Sonya's Secret Garden on every trip to Tagaytay. Reservations are necessary.

    Mushroom Burger: Have a taste of the famous mushroom burger

    by flirtyguy Updated Aug 10, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really like the foods here. Lalo na ung mushroom burger nila. Yummy! Lots of food varieties here ranging from snacks to meals.

    Favorite Dish: Syempre ung Mushroom Burger. That's why the resto was named after the food. Very tasty and delicious, the taste is quite different with the normal burgers that you usually eat sa mga fastfood chain. Maybe it's the mushroom...or maybe not...basta you must try that burger when you visit Tagaytay

    Antonio's: Focus: Snob Appeal

    by syllybabe Updated Aug 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Full details of our dining experience are in must-see activities.
    Pic is of the dining area in the lower terrace where we chose to sit.
    If you're on a romantic dinner date, this is where you would want to be.
    Tonyboy, the chef was a gracious host and the staff was helpful but unobtrusive.

    Bag of Beans: English Bakery and Coffee Shop

    by syllybabe Updated Jun 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Easy to spot because it's right along the highway, Coffee Bean has a store where they sell their yummy breads and a garden-style dining room downstairs.
    We had breakfast there and had their special omelette with a side of bacon and their bread.

    Sonya's Garden: Garden Delights

    by syllybabe Written May 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dining here for the third time I knew what to expect in terms of food.
    Sonya's Garden specialties include homemade pasta with a choice of two sauces...white sauce with chicken and a hint of mango and a red sauce with sun dried tomatoes. You get a pitcherful of freshly squeezed dalandan (local citrus that's a cross between an orange and lime), a huge bowl of salad greens with their special dressing, and small bowls of fruit, nuts, and other stuff you can put on your pasta.
    The food's always the same and although good, I sensed something was missing...in spite of dining in the midst of their garden, I could no longer smell the fragrant rosewater that used to linger in the air from the moment you walked into the garden.

    Very fresh and totally refreshing

    They used to be a small restaurant that people came all the way from Manila for. They have fresh salads, excellent Batangas brewed coffee, and delicious blueberry cheesecake.
    What used to be the restaurant is now their store and a new building with a full dining restaurant has been constructed.

    Canteen: San Miguel light vs Corona

    by Pinoy Written Jan 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: Do you know that the alcohol volume of San Miguel light is 5% as compared to Mexican Corona which has only 4.5%? Considering San Miguel is light. I've noticed imported beers have less 5% of alcohol content. It only shows we are beer drinkers. Get a grip westerns!

    Canteen: The beer lovers!!!

    by Pinoy Updated Jan 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: One thing you should remember, never buy hard liquor without a seal. You may end up drinking a fake one. It is very common in the Philippines. Otherwise, settle for beers - the San Miguel Light..taste good.

    Sonja's Garden: My Name is Orchid & I'm a Vegetarian! Hahaha

    by moomoos Updated Dec 5, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sonja lets her guests eat in her greenhouses. She has about 4 greenhouses where she serves food. It allows you to feel as if you're really eating in a garden. Really special & innovative.

    In the greenhouse I was at, there was a piano - free for any musically inclined guests to show off their talent. It's a really cozy place, not only to eat but also to stroll around.
