Nice view of Taal

The restaurant had a good view of Taal. Good thing we arrived quite early for lunch so we got a good spot to enjoy the view. The food was good. I like the bulalo, first time to try it in Tagaytay. Big serving for us.

The place has an awesome view of Taal Volcano and is quite roomy. I've been dining at various branches ever since I was a child and have always been satisfied. This time, I brought about 10 people with me including my mother. We ordered Crispy Pata, prawns, fish, etc. For some reason the prawns were tasteless and dried up -... More

We had hard time looking for this restaurant because the Waze app is pointing to wrong direction. I searched for the top restaurants at Tagaytay and found this. There are long line of people. We are number eight for the ala carte table. We don't want to join the buffet that time. We ordered Seafood Paella, Adobo, Chicken with Thyme,... More

Just discovered that there is a thread about this restaurant. My family and I ate hear one lunch time sometime November of 2014. Waiters are not very attentive. The crispy kangkong we ordered was very oily with some not crispy at all. The Inihaw na liempo we ordered is nothing special, just your typical backyard bbq grill type. But the... More

This place has a great view of taal lake. The ambience here is warm and cozy, great food, great service. Downside is after eating dinner here when we went out there's no tranpo outside the highway when it is late night, so we have to spend big amount asking the hotel staff to pick us up by hotel car.

Stopped by for lunch during a visit to Tagaytay and was not disappointed. The restaurant is very popular in the area and gets crowded. We started with the seafood chowder and the clam soup and went on to have the blue marlin, grilled bangus and grilled tuna steak. The soups were served promptly and were very tasty. The fish was...

Agree with most reviewers that the view is great. Nice view overlooking Taal volcano/lake. We did have ala carte breakfast/lunch an overall good but not great food. Service was very prompt and no waiting. We went early so that may have helped. Would definitely visit again.

View across to the Taal Volcano was the best thing they have in the restaurant, food is very ordinary, but the 4 piece live Phillipino band who roam around the restaurant was the highlight.
