Lunch at Lemon and Olives Greek Taverna

We’re supposed to eat lunch at the Food Camp but because of the rain hindi na natuloy. So we decided to go to a different restaurant but we’re having a hard time looking for parking, parking is always full. We were really hungry so kahit saan pwede na pero punuan talaga. We were losing hope so we went straight to Good Shepherd Convent to buy pasalubong first, then we started looking for a restaurant again.

We passed by Lemon and Olives Greek Taverna and I remembered that this is one of the Top 10 Restaurant in Baguio and finally, we were able to park. Yey, merienda time na yata so nalipasan na kami ng gutom. Lol I love the interiors of the restaurant, the combination of blue, white and yellow colors. There are a lot of tables but the best spot is at the balcony because you have the view of the mountains and pine trees. And like I said, it is a good spot so sometimes di kami makaconcentrate sa pagkain kasi bigla may pwepwesto sa gilid namin para mapapicture sila with the view. Waah!

The staff gave us the menu, it’s been years since the last time we tried Greek food so it was a challenge to choose meal. We ordered Greek Village Sausage P180, Grilled Steak P410, Greek Style Spaghetti P260 and Classic Baklava P160. They have a special menu too where you can order lamb rack, seafood platter, Angus beef, beef giouvetsi and lamb giouvetsi that is good for two, four or six persons.

The meals are good for sharing. I was worried that my son will not like the sausage but I was glad that it is not spicy. For the grilled steak meal, it includes vegetables and a choice of fries, plain rice, lemon pilaf or pita, I chose fries. I enjoyed my grilled steak, there is a distinct flavor so siguro ito yung Greek or Mediterranean taste.

My husband enjoyed his spaghetti, it is not the usual red spaghetti. The pasta is already filling because of the big chunk of beef sirloin and generous mozzarella cheese. I love cheesecake so I ordered Baklava Cheesecake but it was not available so I chose Classic Baklava instead. It is a delicate dessert made of thin paper-like dough called Phyllo filled with chopped nuts and sweet honey syrup. It is not the usual dessert that I eat but it was good.

Overall, we were satisfied with the meal and service. The only thing I don’t like is yung bill-out, ang tagal talaga. Uwing-uwi na kami, parang gusto ko ako na magcompute para sa kanya. Nagmanual computation pa sila in the end, I don’t know why.

  1. I've heard so much about this place, but in our recent to Bagiuo, we went past this place to go to the quaint little coffee shop called Coffee & Pine.
