Great filipino food! Its best aspect is the view. If you do eat outside, there are some flies but it didn't bother us because the food was amazing. Whether you were indoors or outdoors, the restaurant provides a majestic view of Taal Lake, which makes the dining experience even better!

We went there at a last moment decision. We are so glad we did. The food was excellent. The staff was very helpful and the view of Taal Lake was fabulous. We are so glad we went there. The food is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. It was well worth it.

We usually head here as the restaurant looks very high end but regularish prices, has amazing outdoor seating with views of taal volcano as you eat. Good place to eat if you're looking for that restaurant experience. Food is pretty good, really good atmosphere and surroundings, great staff.

Bulalo is one of the best i tasted plus the view from your deck is to die for. Waiters are also very accommodating when being asked to take photos! Would recommend this resto as a must go to place in tagaytay!

The food is nice and yummy. They have wide selection of menu. Very nice view as well. The problem is that their utensils are dirty. We have eaten here not only once but we always encounter the same problem

We ordered food from the menu. The Place was very crowded due to its popularity. Our guide recommended some popular dishes which we enjoyed very much. The view of the lake and the Volcano was fantastic.

I find the dishes expensive, but I guess you're paying for the ambience. The food is not amazing, but it's good enough. I just hope they can make their famous bulalo more tender, maybe boil the meat for a few more hours and serve the soup hotter than just hot. It's good to dine here with a large group. They... More
