5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We arrived en mass. 11 of us. No problems. Staff very courteous and accommodating. Food was delicious with good range of cuisine and reasonably priced. Had four plates of oysters and only complaint was that some were very thin. Beers were cold and went down too well. Will definitely be back for more next time in Tagatay

The selection of foods are very tempting. Since we were just 3 adults and have 4 kids we ordered just what we can have for our tummy though we love to try some of their menus.

How can a Breakfast Buffet set in a captivating scenic view of the lovely Taal Volcano go wrong? The view is such a giveaway and the variety of food selection and cuisine for breakfast will keep you coming back. Best for groups, family and barkada getaway, since there is a dish for everyone's taste and craving. It's a great way... More

We arrived around 5:30Pm this afternoon thats why we still enjoyed the beautiful view of Taal Lake. We ordered clam chowder, seafood platter, bulalo, seafood salad and plain rice and crab rice. I highly recommend the seafood platter and bulalo.. really yummy. Service was quite ok. Accommodating with our request and quite attentive just not that polite waiters.

If your looking for classic Filipino Food, Josephine serves consistently good Crispy pata, Kare-kare, pansit, BBQ -pork/chicken/hito and pinakbet. Abit more pricey than its neighbors on the ridge, but easy parking and nice interiors plus the great view of Taal make up for the difference...

Thank Bong A
