We were treated for a Buffet Lunch, we were thankful, it's a beautiful place but if you are not vegan, their restaurant isn't for you ! Drove all the way from the city just to be dismayed by the food selection. Even for a Vegan Buffet Selection, they only had 6 choices and some of the chafers only have Sauce... More

I gave this place 5 not because of food but because of the garden. I would also say I did like the interior of Morning Glory where we had our lunch. Its homey, relaxing plus colorful old chandeliers kind of added more kick to how the place look like. Regarding food its ok. On our visit its Php.683.00/person, eat all... More

Tucked very very very far away from the hustle and bustle of Tagaytay central, is this serene and peaceful retreat. It was very hard to find and the street very narrow but the trip was worth it. It was a beautiful garden with vintage houses and a cool atmosphere. The restaurant houses several tables and chairs mostly for big groups.... More

This place has a Filipiniana atmosphere with a lot of greeneries to compliment its surroundings. It's a beautiful venue for weddings and special occasions. If you need a respite from a hectic schedule take a day off and enjoy a day at Sonya's to relax and rejuvenate.

Having a meal in Sonya's Garden is not just about the food being served, which was one of the most sophisticated yet basic experiences you can have, but it is also about the setting, the surroundings. How I would love to live permanently in a place where flowers always bloom and the environment is cool and beautiful. I guess that... More

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
