Just OK

Great view, but like too many places with a view to draw in the crowds, the rest isn't quit up to scratch. Food is good. Service was really slow. Wait staff were hard to catch. Overall, not that good.

Leslie's, as we know is a staple in Tagaytay City as one of the go to's for Bulalo (Beef Shank), as they became popular because of their so-called delicous food. NOT! We ordered Bulalo and two serving of rice, came a few minutes later, and we were more than dissapointed from what we ate. The meat was soooooo TOUGH, like... More

We ordered the 'famous' Beef shank soup. But the meat was tough and was not boiled for long enough. We ordered the chicken and pork adobo. The meat was like a rock. Nearly broke a tooth chewing away at it. The only decently good thing was the calamari. A lot of insects and flies at the place. Will not be... More

From the mid uplands of Cavite on the way back to Manila, Tagaytay is still the choice destination en route home. So we stopped over at Leslie's for a big family lunch. We were about a dozen in the group including some balikbayans hungry for true Filipino cuisine and the scenic view of Taal Volcano. We had a gastronomic feast... More

Yes, you will have the best bulalo in this side of the city. But the view of the Taal Lake is a lot more enticing than the generous servings of the food that we ordered.

We go to Tagaytay frequently for food. I make sure I check on trip advisor before we pay each place a visit. Sorry, but I don't quite agree with the reviews. We tried this place just out of curiosity. We didn't get to finish the food even if we were all hungry not because the servings were big but because... More

This place has a large dining area and a great view of Taal Volcano. I love how airy the place is. Food is delish! You need to try their bulalo. I love all food we ordered. Food selection is really vast. They have musician doing round in the restaurant. You can request for a song and give a tip afterwards.... More

When we go to Tagaytay, atleast once or twice a month for a road trip or when there is a storm, yes, we love going there when it is raining or there is a storm; A must have is the bulalo. We've tried different Bulalo restaurants in Tagaytay, and we just enjoyed the one in Leslie's. They have more vegetables... More

My family and in-laws experienced the greatest meal. The food was tasty and fresh. The service was magnificent. The view of Taal Volcano is awe inspiring.
