i've been eyeing to visit this place, and finally! this was my baby love's first taste of our hometown, leyte. :) we arrived around 11am, and seems the staffs are still in preparation for lunch time. though it's evident that the farm is still recuperating from the onslaught of typhoon yolanda, the scenery remained stunning and refreshing. the tree house...

I visited this place September before Yolanda. I don't care much about the food anyway that taste is good, what mesmerized me is the ambiance. The restaurant is overlooking a very beautiful garden. Very nice landscape that even the worst food would taste good. I sure do hope they have already rebuilt the place coz i heard that it was... More

Great place to visit you will need a car or motorbike to get there if staying in tacloban. The menu is great and really reasonably priced. Great for a special occasion. Staff provided great service. Original building was destroyed by Yolanda typhoon but still worth the visit the function centre is beautiful.

The place has apparently just recently reopened after being damaged by typhoon Yolanda. Our group of 15 were served with beautiful meals. We ordered both the the local cuisine and sandwiches. The place is very relaxing. There was Michael Buble music in the background. We walked around the property and lounged in the veranda while waiting for our meals .The... More

Raphael's Farm is around a 40min drive from the City. The place has a great view and good food! You wouldnt expect that there is a place like it since you will see nothing but empty fields going there. The food was great. It has a similar feel to the food of Bohol Bee Farm restaurant in Bohol. Totally worth... More

On a citywide power blackout weekend, our family decided to go eat out & stay outdoors since there was no electricity. It was probably the worst decision we made dining here. Flies were everywhere, the owner shouting to his staff- they were under staffed that day. Order took eternity to arrive, after an hour we were just served salad &... More

Out of the way. It is a 30 minute ride outside of the city with few public transportation available. Nice view. Good place for long serious conversations. Nice for weddings.

An excellent combination of a restaurant and a park, this place is placed in the middle of a farmland and can be considered a eating resort. The restaurant serves excellent local food and some famous Filipino cuisine.

Flies were eating with us, as in there were lots of them.The service crew was apologetic naman but they should look for a solution to exterminate the flies because it's really unhygienic. The place isn't attractive as the pictures shown on FB or in the internet but I understand as the farm hasn't recovered yet from typhoon Yolanda. Good place... More
