Josephine's is our "Go-To" restaurant when in Tagaytay. Its like the good old lunch or dinner banquet of Mom and it gives a little comfort after battling the almost always traffic journey to Tagaytay. We still love the food, simple Filipino good foods with a bit of other cousines - the Bulalo and the Halaan Soup always comes on top... More

I have always defaulted to Josephine Restaurant when I want good familiar food, the type my mom or my wife would cook. But done way better and with impeccable service in a setting that one can not have in his backyard (not unless you live on the Tagaytay ridge). Dining al fresco or inside the airconditioned restaurant, one can anjoy... More

I love this restaurant. I always bring my family and friends here whenever I come home. The foods are really good and reasonable price. The ambiance and the picturesque surrounding in and out is really awesome. Maybe because of the number of customers, the service is not that excellent. We have to wait for long and have to remind several... More

Josephine is a mountaintop resort and very easy to find off the main road through Tagaytay. We stopped simply for dessert and coffee at their restaurant after lunch elsewhere. The views from the dining room are nothing short of spectacular, with Taal Lake, an ancient collapsed volcano far below. The interior is cleverly and appealingly decorated and the outdoor dining...

This restaurant has a great view of the Taal Volcano and you're paying mostly for that. We ordered the seafood platter and I got very disappointed because it's not fresh. It tasted weird.The Vietnamese roll is good. The Lechon kawali is just okay. The service is a bit slow. Too expensive for the quality of food.

I'm a foodie and travels a lot with different people. Most of the times, with family. We live nearby Tagaytay and it's been a while since we ate Filipino food. So when I asked my family to dine in for dinner, it was exactly Nov 10, 2013 when I was in the mood to crave for something Pinoy classic specialties... More

The restaurant is certainly popular but we would have liked more local cooked cuisine. We had the 'western fare' type grilling of chicken and beef which was average. We love the calamari which was very fresh and deliciously prepared. It was a sort of a "make up" dish as the chicken was undercooked.
