Nice Garden and Shops

A fair bit out of the way, but worth the drive if you want some lovely fresh produce and other goods. Didn't bother with the lunch as it looked like a buffet and we weren't that hungry. Gardens are well kept and we got some fresh tasty lettuce (hard to find in Manila!) and the Sonya's dressing... read more

This place is overwhelmingly green, Elrond might've envy it. dining here is quite an experience. going to the place is not easy, as you have to drive all the way from Manila, your hunger and anticipation for food rises. the food are simple, but all organic and grown right outside the restaurant (the vegetables). You start with the salad, all... More

The wedding we attended had their reception here. The place is located in a somewhat secluded area but easy to find as there are signages. If you would held an event at Sonya's they would display your event on their billboard which is located at the national highway entrance going to Sonya's. Parking is adequate but gets filled when there... More

It's no longer a secret garden since it's a busy place. But it's beautiful. Their gardens are just breathtaking! I didn't have a chance to taste their food but bought their salad and saladdressing to go with it and it was awesome!

For me, any trip to Tagaytay is not complete if I don't come here for a visit. Absolutely love the place -- the garden, the store, the bakery. I always go for a spa treatment every time. I also love the lifestyle that the owner preaches. She advocates simplicity, beauty, going back to the basics in life, and it all... More

Can't get enough of this place. I keep coming back whether it's with my boyfriend, family, or friends. The ambiance is lovely, it is not far from the city, and I love their buffet - even though it's simple, the choices are fresh. I especially love their salad. It's the perfect place for short relaxing getaways. Also, the "Proposal Room"... More

Much has been written about Sonya's garden, by my family and i are sort of 'late-bloomers' having only tried dining in the restaurant recently. The ambience is wonderfully put together with nature's collaboration. Trees cut through ceilings and walls. Walkways are covered by greens all over. Food quality is nothing amazing given the gastronomic choices we already have in the... More

Quite hidden and yet always filled with people. That says a lot. If you want veggies and a really clean meal, eat here. I love the tarragon tea and the breads and salad. The pasta is ok. You can eat as much ad your stomach can take and it's ok! No guilt feelings getting full here.

My first visit was way back October 2015 and we decided to return again. Since its December we chose to visit at night to see the Christmas Lights that this place would offer. We only intended to visit the place to take some photos and to buy a bread at their own Panaderia. Then along the way, we get to... More
