We had great 2 days & night stay at Sonya's Secret Garden. The whole place, cottages, food and service was excellent! I highly recommend this place for people who wanted to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Sonya's Garden call it "The art of doing nothing".

This is a staple to bring my overseas guests from so I make at least a yearly visit. From the previous one, the first thing I noted was the change in the way they serve the food. From the original "family style" where all the dishes are served in the middle of the table, it is now only the salad... More

Long delayed review. Been to Sonya's Garden on two separate occasions, back in July 2011 with friends, and January 2014 with family. Back in July 2011, everything was served to you by the waiters; very fresh salad, delicious "secret dressing," warm bread, pastas, and cake. Service was prompt, with a smile, despite the number of customers dining. My husband and... More

Every time we have a weekday break from work we drive up to Sonya's Garden. We never get tired of the healthy salad and roasted chicken. That's always after having our much needed massage at the spa. And never ever forget to pick up some Hispanic bread, pan de coco, onion leek hopia and coffee bun from the bakery. But... More

We came to Sonya's garden because my mom had coupon for free lunch that she got from her office mate.The place is very calming. Together with soothing background music and well crafted food, cooked with home grown ingredients, Sonya's garden is a sure win for food enthusiasts. My parents and siblings think its an okay, but for me, it was... More

It's a little pricey, especially to those with limited budget. Hope they run specials so others can enjoy the ambiance this place offers.

Was surprised to find out that they didn't have ala-carte meals any more, only buffet. The price was P700 per person. A bit steep, in my opinion, for the few options they had on the buffet table. The buffet table only had the following selections: Main course: Fettuccini pasta with an option of fresh tomato sauce and chicken sauce with... More

Went over for lunch and realized there's no a la carte but menu set. Only salad and pasta buffet style. Was not very impressed but decided to take it. Salad dressing is out of this world. Most of the items are fresh from the garden. Great meal. Not cheap though. Breads at the bakery were great too.
