Tagaytay is not complete without eating at Josephine's. It's just a shame we missed the weekend buffet but our lunch was great. If you are into Filipino food, this is a great way to experience it. Then after eating, you can go out into the garden and have your selfie or groupie with the famous Taal Volcano as your background.

Food is great, service is excellent. Tradition through the years I hope they don't change. I hope they come up with new dishes

If you want to satisfy your craving for Filipino food, Josephine's is worth a visit. Timeless Filipino cuisine at reasonable prices is available here. However, if you happen to be there during peak hours (lunchtime mostly 12 - 1 p.m. or dinner time 7-8:30 pm, be prepared to wait a bit

Very good Filipino cuisine, consistently good. Wide range of Filipino dishes served in a winning five star-like building with a breathtaking view of the Lake.

A hotel-ish style restaurant. The view is spectacular. The ambiance is classy. Music is jazz/classical piano (have no idea if there was a real piano man). The food is filipino dishes, totally exceptional. It's pricey but, man, they have their reasons to jack up the price. (10% service charge per order). Service was fast and friendly. I would definitely come... More

We went to this restaurant last Sunday to celebrate my brother's birthday. It was a foggy day yet the place is still one of the best in Tagaytay. The parking is a simple grassy area but you might get confused between their buffet and a la carte area. We went to their buffet area but it was so crowded and... More

Charming, very modern restaurant completely surrounded by floor to ceiling windows. Even with some fog, the view is beautiful. Food is very good and the choice location somewhat justifies the prices. An ideal place for weddings, parties, etc - plenty of room inside and outside. Reservations highly suggested.

It wasn't my first time to dine in Josephine's Tagaytay and as always,I am satisfied with the service and with the food. There's so much choices from main dish to dessert. It's always... More

Early days of my career, I got an unexpected business meeting and client decided to eat here while presenting our company profile. Luckily, I got more than 1 project and one of my best successful deals never forget. Food is good. During that time, Career starter can lose his pocket on the price. But, All are memorable.
