Awesome view while eating lunch

We came here 2 weeks ago with the whole family. It was a first time for me and my wife. We love all the Filipino dishes they served. My favorite is Sweet and Sour Pork and the crunchy meat which my wife said was the Lechon Kawali. Very courteous staff. The ambiance and food was worth the price. In... read more

This place is a must if you are planning on visiting Tagaytay. After our visit to the Volcano we stopped off here to eat. The staff is very courteous and the food was really good. As a vegetarian, my choices in the Philippines were pretty limited most places but the appetizers and main course of vegetables with rice were excellent... More

We had lunch at Josephine's in tagaytay for father's day 2weeks ago. We had halaan and seafood chowder soup, crispy kare kare, tawilis, tenderloin tips with mushrooms and chopsuey, food was to die for, the restaurant also offers a grand view of the taal lake and in itself the place was sophisticated. If not for the 45minute waiting time i... More

I definitely like the look of the restaurant. It displays old and quainty stuff. The tv in front of the bar area is the one with CRT although not the black and white one. The CR is clean and also displays old stuff. The bulalo however is still not the best in town. Upto now where still searching for it.... More

It is a surprise treat for my sister-in-law! and we love the ambiance of the place overlooking Taal, with the ever famous Tagaytay weather, it is simply magical! The food is ok, not bad to bring ur foreign guests here.

The food was absolutely delicious, though since it's pretty famous the line to sit was long as always. We went there father's day 2015 (today), we got to sit within the 45 minute time frame we were given (sooner since some people left). We didn't get to sit with the view shown and we didn't try the buffet so we... More

That's just it. Great view of the lake. Food? Meh. Service? Very slow, waiters doesn't pay attention, orders didn't get right. Took forever to serve. Big flies everywhere. Nice restroom. Not worth your money.

Excellent food, excellent view, excellent ambiance, excellent restaurant! When you are seated by the glass window, you are in an air-conditioned surroundings as if feeling the breeze of the view outside. Lunch will be very enjoyable with the sight of Taal lake and volcano. Fanatastic!
