Very good food and the view is awesome. We brought our guest here visiting from the U S. We'd come back and bring more guest.

Went here last week with family, breath taking view and the food was delicious. They have a lot of options in their menu and will definately recommend the Bulalo. The staff were friendly and the waiting time for the table was 15mins as they dont take reservations during weekends.

Great location. You get your money's worth because of the view. Food is kinda pricey but ambience makes it even.

While in Tagaytay, Philippines recently we walked from our hotel to this lovely restaurant. Josephine sits on the volcanic ridge overlooking Taal Lake. The restaurant is large and the wait staff is very attentive. We were there for dinner and decided to sample several different items (tapas style). The highlight was the tawilis, a fresh water fish slightly larger than... More

Tagaytay's charming restaurant, best for lunch so that you can admire the beautiful Taal Lake and the volcano island within it. They have buffet but I suggest to stick to the classic ala carte dishes - Bulalo, Crispy Pata, Pancit Bihon, Grilled Squid and Sisig. To cap our filling and delectable lunch, it is a must to try out their... More

There wasn't too much variety as far as the food went. However, since it was reasonably priced, I guess that was to be expected. When we were there, we noticed a lot of flies. Since the buffet area is open, that could really be irritating and unhealthy. They did light a few candles on the tables but I guess the... More

Eating at Josephine's is a gourmet experience. They have the leveled up the food that they used to serve in the original Kawit, Cavite restaurant. Always loved the Mutya ng Cavite.

Our favorite resto for our comfort food. Been visiting this resto even before they had the tagaytay branch. Originally it was in Panamitan in Kawit ,Cavite. If your looking for home cooked meals this is the place to be. It's also nice to have breakfast here during weekends. They have all you can eat breakfast and lunch too. The price... More

Josephine's has been a long time favorite (20 years) for my wife and myself. Sadly it is beginning to show its age. Food quality which used to be exceptional is simply good not exceptional, service has slipped, and the place seems a bit shabby all around. I wish I could be more complimentary but all I can say is that... More
