Still tops!

Had a solid lunch of crispy kangkong, chicharon bulaklak, sisig, bulalo, rellenong bangus and crispy pata. All excellent and the service was great as well. Josephine has not lost her place at the Tagaytay top.

Great over-all ambience. They have fantastic view of Taal. The food is okay, price is reasonable. Could be a good venue for family gatherings.

Had lunch with a friend - and got a table facing the volcano, nice view! We had kare-kare, good, big serving. And we also had baked oysters - 12 baked oysters. Lots of food for two people. After lunch, we took some photos of the volcano.

The view is great but the food is just ok. The place needs to be renovated since some of the furniture show wear and tear.

When we went here, there were lots of people but i think they were accustomed to it given that it was spacious. The food and service was ok. What bothered me was the restroom because coming from a long trip all of us needed to use it. There was a long line and it was moving slow and that was... More

They serve quick. We were more than 15 and food arrived just in time. We had the traditional Nilaga (beef was a little gummy), fish sinigang,... More

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.

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
