Filled with iconic restaurants that you just have to go to!
We can never get enough of a quick road trip to Tagaytay! There’s always something new and we just have to get away from the city once in awhile. We’ve rounded up 10 of the best restaurants in Tagaytay based on user favorites from Booky, the #1 food app in the Philippines!
10. Bag of Beans – Aguinaldo Highway
Last month’s #10
Bag of Beans is a big, rustic and cozy cafe and restaurant in Tagaytay with various places to hang out, either indoor, at a gazebo, or by the fireplace. They serve American-Asian fusion dishes specializing in homemade savory pies, breads and proudly local coffee.
It’s for groups who want to hangout and enjoy the cool Tagaytay breeze.
It’s not for people who want close attention from the servers.
We recommend the Shepherd’s Pie, Blueberry Cheesecake and house blend coffee. Our insider tip is Bag of Beans has a second branch at the rotunda and a third branch at the new Twin Lakes Tagaytay, where you can enjoy dining with a view.
9. The Purple Owl – Villa Pura
Last month’s #5
The Purple Owl is truly one of Tagaytay’s best kept secrets; it’s an events place and a restaurant in one. It’s for couples, families and friends looking for a beautiful space to celebrate special occasions like an anniversary, a reunion, a proposal or a wedding. Guests are required to book two days in advanced and select between two set course meals by Mrs. Gee’s Kitchen. It’s not the best choice during rainy season as their services are best enjoyed outdoors. We recommend you save this place for a really special occasion. Our insider tip is The Purple Owl personalizes every event based on your preferences and requests, from the display photos and messages to the music.
8. Breakfast at Antonio’s – Aguinaldo Highway
Last month’s #8
Chef Tony Boy Escalante, out of his love for breakfast, created a spin-off of Antonio’s –Breakfast at Antonio’s. It serves all-day breakfast in a classic and elegant but casual Antonio home-style dining setup. The architecture and interiors of the place are very well-adapted to its location, creating a space with an unobstructed view of Taal Lake and to catch the refreshing Tagaytay breeze. It’s for families or couples looking for breakfast or brunch with a view. It’s not for people who don’t want to queue as they don’t accept bookings. We recommend the Chorizo Bilbao with Mushrooms Omelette, Daing na Gindara, Fresh Corned Beef and their Hot Chocolate. Our insider tip: you might want to take out some of their baked goodies and jams from their in-house bakery.
7. Tous Les Jours – Ayala Malls Serin
