Great food but too hot inside the resto

I've been here three times in the past 7 years. Food is still great and service superb. My only question is why it still has not upgraded its airconditioning system. It still uses fans that really doesn't cool the place because it only circulates hot air inside. The resto is prone to greenhouse... read more

We enjoyed the quaint shops inside, but not really the garden. Or maybe because i was expecting a really nice flower garden, but wasnt able to see one, hence, the disappointment. We already had breakfast at bag of beans and just intended to sample their salad at sonya's, but we weren't able to do that since the resto only serves... More

The first time I visited this place was 2 years ago with my sister and mom. We just checked out the place and bought some bread and cookies at their "Panaderia". The second time was last year with our eldest sister who went home from the States and our mom. We tried their buffet lunch and we were all satisfied... More

I had a wonderful lunch with family and friends. The ambiance is so peaceful. You eat in a garden tent with cute shabby chic mismatched furniture, light fixtures and flowers all around. The salad and breads are amazing. Grown and made on site with edible flowers and assorted greens and veggies. Walk around the grounds to admire the gardens. There's... More

78 kilometers from Rizal Park (the heart of Manila) to Sonya's Garden The trip is well worth it (as long as you are not stuck in traffic somewhere along the route) When in Tagaytay or Alfonso Cavite, you can never go wrong with a visit to the ever famouse Sonya's Garden. The unlimited salad bar is always fresh from the... More

The sonya's secret garden is a restuarant that serves organic food with a relaxing and awesome ambiance. I just love the salad,its simple prep but because of its organic veggies it taste good.

If you're into diet then this place is for you. Try their salad. Limited food selections. Good for couples.

I have been with my family to Sonya's Garden a few months back and I must say that the hotel and garden is simply gorgeous, but they have to improve the quality of food in the restaurant. The salad buffet was mostly 2 types of lettuce, not so ripe tomatoes, and cucumber. I asked if they have at least arugula,... More
