Food Trip in Tagaytay

Since we live in South Luzon, Tagaytay is our go-to place for food tripping, staycation or if we just want to unwind. There are so many restaurants in Tagaytay and I’ll be sharing some restaurants that we have tried in Silang Cavite, Tagaytay and along the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road. 

Where to Eat in Tagaytay

1. Leslie’s Restaurants

We dined here for the nth time already; we love the ambiance, view, and food. This restaurant is always packed with diners so sometimes the waiting time is so long. I don’t know why I always forgot to take some pictures.

We never fail to order their bulalo, of course when you’re in Tagaytay you want soup. We visited their new branch at Sky Ranch last month 

2. Buon Giorno  

I’ve read so many good reviews about this restaurant so we tried it. I love the ambiance, view, and food too. It is located in Cliffhouse

3. Josephine’s Tagaytay 

After our Paradizoo, we tried Josephine’s restaurant, just in front of Summit Ridge. Again, I love the ambiance, view, and food.

4. Mano’s Greek Taverna

If you search the internet, you will always read good reviews about their food and true enough we loved the food. 

5. Viewsite Restaurant

We always passed by this restaurant on our way to Caleruega so last 2011, we tried this restaurant and we love the ambiance, view, and food. 

We tried this again two months after our first visit but we were so disappointed, it took them more than an hour to serve our food, after numerous follow-ups.

6. Bag of Beans

Bag of Beans is one of the favorite restaurants in Tagaytay but we were disappointed with our order when we first visited the place. There’s nothing special about the food considering the price.  Or maybe we have high expectations because of the good reviews online. 

For the second time around, we visited the restaurant and tried the breakfast menu in Bag of Beans, and the same fate, we were not satisfied. 

But we love their raisins bread. 

7. Hawaiian BBQ

I always want to stay in Boutique Bed & Breakfast but I still don’t have the budget so we just tried their Hawaiian BBQ restaurant. We liked the food, though it is quite expensive but it’s worth the price.

8. Viewpoint Restaurant

Viewpoint Inn and Restaurant has an overlooking view of Taal Volcano so if you want a good ambiance while eating, you can try this restaurant. Hubby and son enjoyed their sinigang na maliputo. 

9. JVF Bulalohan 

This is quite far from Tagaytay Rotonda but we have no choice but to eat here. It was Good Friday and most restaurants were crowded. 

10. JT’s Manukan Grille

If you are craving for Bacolod Chicken Inasal you don’t have to worry because there’s JT’s Manukan Grille along Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road. The place is huge so it can accommodate a big group. 

11. RSM Binalot Sa Dahon 

I know that RSM is serving good Filipino dishes so I did not have a second thought of trying it but unfortunately we are not satisfied with our order. 

12. D' Banquet 

We celebrated Mother’s Day here last year. The meal is affordable and serving is good too. You can also buy Amira’s Buco tart and other pasalubong here. 

13. Marcia Adams

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The meal is on the pricey side but if you want a new dining experience you can try this restaurant. Do not forget to make a reservation. 

14. Carlos Pizza

My friend suggested this restaurant but when we tried it, the food was just ok for us but they have a good view of Taal volcano.

15. Breakfast at Antonio’s

This restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants in Tagaytay though it is already far from Tagaytay Rotonda. The price is expensive but I still recommend the place because most of the food they serve is homemade. 

16. LZM Restaurant

This restaurant is known for its bulalo so that’s what we ordered. The food is good and the price is not expensive but the service is quite slow. 

17. Tootsie’s Tagaytay 

The restaurant is good for family food trip because the serving is huge. The food is good and the price is reasonable. 

18. Santis Delicatessen

Santis Deli Cafe or Santis Delicatessen meal is quite steep but I did not have any regrets when we dined here because we were very satisfied with our meal. 
The restaurant sells cheese, sausage, and other imported products. 

19. Baek Yuen Korean Restaurant

This is where we celebrated Mother’s Day and we were very satisfied with our meal. It was a nice dining experience at a reasonable price. 

20. Balinsasayaw 

You will see this restaurant before reaching Tagaytay. The place was not inviting if you will look from the highway but you will be surprised na there are nipa huts where you can dine. 

21. Lyleth’s Eatery at Mahogany Market

The Mahogany market is also popular because of the bulalo eatery there. If you are looking for affordable bulalo you can give it a try. But manage your expectation because the place is open like carinderia and it is in the market. 

22. Cafe Veranda at Taal Vista Hotel

We went to Taal Vista Hotel just to eat a buffet breakfast in Cafe Veranda. We tried their buffet breakfast before when we had staycation a few years ago. 

23. La Finca Tagaytay

One of the new restaurants in Tagaytay located in Domicillo Design Hotel. The place has a good view of Taal Volcano too. 

24. The Farm Organics

The Farm Organics is located in Twin Lakes, they are offering a brunch buffet every Saturday and Sunday. 

25. Verbena Restaurant at Discovery Country Suites 

If you want privacy, eat at Verbena Restaurant. They accept walk-ins and the place was not crowded so you will enjoy your food trip.

26. Green ATS Bulalohan & Restaurant 

This restaurant started operating in the year 2004 but it was only last week we were able to try it (2018). The restaurant looks nice, it has Taal volcano view, the food price is reasonable and the service is good too. 

27. Starbucks 

If you love coffee, then Starbucks is one of your choices. This cafe has a good view of Taal Volcano too. 

28. Cafe Voi La

You will see this restaurant before going to the Crosswinds Resort Suites. The restaurant is very intagrammable. They served different dishes but the rate is on the expensive side.

29. Balay Dako

Balay Dako is one of Antonio's Group of restaurants in Tagaytay. This restaurant serves Filipino cuisines so if you love Filipino foods or if you have balikbayan guests, this is a good choice of restaurant. They have buffet breakfast every weekend and on selected holidays. 

30. Napa at Crosswinds

31. Taza Fresh Table

I’m still searching for the best bulalo restaurant; feel free to share your favorite restaurant so we can try it too. Klook.com
