Considering all the surroundings and the atmosphere of and around Tagaytay, when we entered in Java Jazz Cafe we felt like walking through a whole into another space. So relaxed atmosphere, whole place decorated with art of (suppose) local artists, chill-out music just tempered the whole vibe. Menu was quite rich offering lots of different things for different occasions -... More

The warmth is just perfect for the cool weather in Tagaytay. We loved EVERYTHING they served us! I was so giddy during our whole stay because I really really loved the place and the people were so warm. Do check out our review! http://www.delighteduniverse.com/2014/04/oh-java-jazz.html

The java jazz cafe manages to be some kind of blend of art gallery, fancy coffee house, great Filipino restaurant and music appreciation room. And somehow they pull it off! The food is fantastic, traditional Filipino food (with lots of other options too), the staff are impossibly friendly and polite, and the place itself is wonderfully quirky, with slanty ceilings,...

We went here to celebrate a special day on purpose. As recommended by our friends, totally the ambiance was very good. The food was nothing out of ordinary but the price were reasonable. Artworks was a plus factor for a relaxing and homey ambiance. Staffs were accomodating and very responsive as expected. My boyfriend and I will definitely visit this... More

The place is small and I see nothing special about the food. It is reasonably priced, but you get what you pay for. Small portion which hardly hits your stomach. Milkshake is terrible, bland and thin. Staff however are very friendly and welcoming.

I had some reservations when we first arrive because the parking area could only fit two cars, but it was allayed by the relaxing ambiance once we got inside. The aesthetic is very nice; lots of artwork to feast your eyes on. The food was average, nothing out of the ordinary, but the price didn't really do damage on my... More

Based from research, I read that they are also offering accommodations. They have 3 rooms available. This has then became our first choice when we were looking for accommodations in Tagaytay last May. But since they only have 3 rooms, all were already booked by the time we arrived. Nevertheless, I was so eager to try this cafe because of... More

We were curious because it's 2nd in tripadvisor restaurants in Tagaytay, but to found out, it's just an average coffee shop. Ambiance not that good, food were just ok. There are still a lot of coffee shops / dessert that you can find better in Tagaytay.

We took a lot of photos of the place and I must say that it looks mighty photogenic. The play-up of colors, the numerous framed photos/ paintings and the pieces of wooden furniture, have all combined to give the place its unique character. Food is just average in taste. Though affordable, I did not feel like I got my money's... More
