If you want to stay in a garden type accomodation, try Sonya's Garden. You will never miss the place as they have a big sign to assist you while driving. They have handmade pasta available and you should try.

I was initially opposed to the idea of trying out Sonya's Secret Garden's buffet because (1) they have "no rice, no meat" and (2) the price, I thought, was quite expensive for a garden salad. And I was right, they don't serve rice and there's no meat. But I love it! The cost was expensive but it was worth every... More

Through the years the gardens have become bigger and more beautiful. Good that the place is constantly evolving. The organic salad, pasta, dalanghita juice and tarragon tea are the staples on the menu. Worth eating there if you are not a meat person. If not simply go there to enjoy the gardens, their panaderia or spa.

Service is terrible. So difficult to call a waiter. We had our terragon tea with chocolate cake. Tea had a huge cockroach! So disgusting!

We were taken to this restaurant by our friend in Manila who gave us no details but indicated we were in for a treat. It was an absolutely delightful experience. I could have just eaten the salad all day but the buffet complemented it. The surrounding gardens were a delight to look at. Didn't realize that it was also a... More

We have visited Sonya's when it first opened and it was an unforgettable dining experience-- the food, the place-- it was magical. We kept coming back through the years and as the place became bigger, the menu stayed the same. Now we just go there if we have visiting friends and relatives because it is still amazing for first timers.... More

I'm a fan of organic food, so I definitely love-love-love this place. Bread choices are oh-so perfect. I won't leave this place without my cheese hopia. And their buffet is so much worth every peso! You will leave this place fully satisfied without the guilt of eating trash.

Located along the Tagaytay - Nasugbu road, Sonya's garden is more of touristy type of b&b/spa/restaurant. The lush landscape was so inviting. The use of indigenous materials like capiz perfectly blend with the English - themed garden and the aroma of freshly baked bread in their Panaderia was intoxicating as well. Most of the lush greenery are accessible to the... More

This is a very pretty garden/hotel resort. I had a relaxing massage and was told the food was very good because they grow a lot of it there. It was a tad pricier for the Philippines but not by U.S. standards and you are paying for the ambiance.
