Reasonable priced restaurant with a view!

Im looking for some ideas for a reasonable restaurant in Tagaytay. A restaurant serving local food, with a view of the lake and nice ambiance preferred.

Kegs suggestion of Josephines restaurant in an earlier thread seems to fit the bill. Their menu looks good and reasonably priced. I noticed on a blog that they were voted No 1 for Filipino Food in the area.

Some of the fine dining restaurants in the area are very expensive even by western standards.

Look forward to any other suggestions.

Hi Tommo...I agree with keg about Josephine's. Other popular Filipino restaurants you might want to try after with a good view are Gerry's Grill and Leslie's. While there, you might want to check out Cliffside Tagaytay as well. No Filipino restaurants there though but a good Italian Restaurant (Buon Giorno) and a Steak House (Fire Lake Grille) with a good view of the lake. The latter's quite pricey though.

The suggestions of bryanpark are all right on the money. I will just add Viewpoint for their fried tawilis and kare-kare. Here's the link --> http://viewpointinnandrestaurant.com/

Been to tagaytay countless times... never tried viewpoint resto.

Most of the time, i suggest Leslie's because they got the best view! They also has the best bulalo (knukle soup). But when I got a VIP with me for a tour, Josephine is where i go for their lunch!

Avoid Taalena resto... been there and don't like it.

I am curious about the greek resto in tagaytay... will try that someday.

If ever you choose Josephine's (specially on weekends) it's a must that you reserve a table and ask for the table near the window or those outside the main dining area. Don't go with their buffet as there's no view to speak of unless you want to stare a wall.
