A great place for taking a healthy home grown organic salad based lunch followed by a relaxing foot massage.

As always whenever we stayed at Sonya's Garden, we felt that our spirits were all rebooted and refreshed. Indeed, the place is very conducive just to relax your soul, thru, as they say - "the art of doing nothing". No TV or Radio, with very weak mobile signals but still the satisfaction of spending even an overnight will result into... More

I was surprised by friends with a trip to Sonyas Garden. Had a fantastic massage in the Spa and then dinner in a converted green house! Salad on the table was great, with local ingredients including pansies in the salad, homemade dressings etc and then hot buffet dishes of pasta and sauces. Staff were attentive without being invasive!!! Had a... More

Sonya's garden offer a healthy option of food when your in Tagaytay. Amidst the many modern/international & Filipino cuisine - this garden offers nothing but a good set of menu that includes an edible flower! Not good for those who can't survive without rice & meat! :D But if you just want to give it a try, the location of... More

The food and service are not the way they used to be. You sort of beg for the fruits and ingredients like jackfruit (now served frozen, not fresh) to be served at tables. Initial salad servings inadequate (very small) and waitstaff not alert to refill. No more shrimps, no more protein, no more patane (beans), etc. Food and service have... More

We usually bring balikbayans to Sonya's Garden. It is a good place to buy bread, tablea and other products such as homemade soaps, linen sprays, balms and other homemade toiletries. The gardens are also beautiful. It is not as nice at it used to be though. It has become very commercial. The ambiance is no longer peaceful and relaxing. When... More

A 2 hour drive from Manila. A garden that will welcome you to bliss. Food starts at P683 for lunch. Fine dining at a low cost served with organic plants for salad which were groomed to Sonya's garden and farms. Pasta with a choice of white sauce and red available. It is such a treat and ending it with the... More

My wife and I always enjoy lunch at Sonya's garden when we visit Tagaytay. We enjoy the food and the ambiance. Even though it's just veggies - I can't get enough of the fresh salad and whatever they put in that dressing. The surrounding gardens are great for pictures. My relatives always take us for a walk towards the B&B... More
