Chateau Hestia is one of those places that’s hard to find and is well concealed. The food however is not spectacular but it is good. The ambiance- a rustic country home with lush greenery around you, a little touch of Austria, the cozy colors, the friendly service, the good coffee, and the serene feeling I get when I come here, are the reasons why I come here. And I've been here over twenty times. It's my favorite place to go to in Tagaytay. Their wine is decently priced and affordable. The deli is also inexpensive. And the food is also modestly priced.
I’ve eaten many of the dishes in the menu and my favorites are the Pork Belly, Osso Bucco, Gorgonzola pasta, and their pizza with Italian cold cuts. The lobster bisque though is disappointing and not worthy of being called such. Their homemade breads and eggplant dip, which are usually complimentary, is light and delightful. For dessert, the panna cotta is ok but their homemade ice cream (Ferrero rocher) is really good but make sure when you order that its not an old stock or that it’s not too frozen or else you’ll be eating chips of crushed ice.
I’ll always come here and it’ll be my favorite spot in Tagaytay. However, the place is getting more and more known so it’s not so much of a hidden gem anymore. Avoid lunch time on the weekends because it loses its tranquility. Go at night or late afternoon.
