I saw this place while searching for gardens for wedding receptions and if I was to get married in Tagaytay, in Transfiguration Chapel in Batangas to be specific, this place would be my first and only choice. First, the place is so lovely and serene perfect for intimate garden weddings. Then come June, my mother decided to take us to... More

Country side theme. Flowers all around in their natural beauty. Stores of different natural/organic products are there. The best here is their vegetable salad.

Do not recommend as a "Must" visit. Cant even recall what I had seen there that is worth sharing. Plants and massage that one can easily forget??

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.
