New restaurants included which you definitely have to go to!

We can never get enough of a quick road trip to Tagaytay! There’s always something new on where to eat in Tagaytay and we just have to get away from the city once in awhile.

Looking to head there soon? We’ve rounded up 10 of the best restaurants for the month in Tagaytay!

10. Pamana – Nasugbu Highway

Last month’s #10

Pamana is a homegrown and classic Filipino restaurant which opened in Tagaytay in 2009. Aside from its dishes, the place became popular for its homey interiors and photo-filled walls. Three years later, the group opened their second branch in Boracay and then 2 years later, a 3rd branch in Legaspi Village, Makati. Most of the dishes are preserved and updated heirloom recipes from owner Happy Ongpauco-Tiu’s family.

It’s for people who love classic, hearty, and satisfying Filipino food with sumptuous servings as well as a beautiful view of Taal. It’s not for people who are dining solo.

Recommended dishes: Crispy pata, Adobong Pusit, and Nilagang Bulalo.

9. The Purple Owl – Villa Pura

Last month’s # 8

The Purple Owl is truly one of Tagaytay’s best kept secrets; it’s an events place and a restaurant in one. The Purple Owl is every couple’s dining, anniversary, and wedding destination; it’s also a beautiful and intimate place for friends and families to celebrate birthdays, gather for a picnic or a casual outdoor movie night.

It’s for anyone looking for a personalized venue and hands-on team to help you celebrate all kinds of special occasions! It’s not the best choice during rainy season as their services are best enjoyed outdoors. 

We recommend that you reserve at least three (3) days before your planned visit.

8. Marcia Adams – Sikat, Alfonso

Last month’s # 7

Marcia Adams’ is a tucked-away Tuscany-inspired garden restaurant that serves Mediterranean dishes. Great for casual lunches and romantic dinner dates, we recommend reserving the sunset lounge for a majestic Tagaytay sunset view.

It’s for people looking for a romantic meal outside the city. It’s not for those who aren’t into plants or garden settings.

Recommended dishes: the Italian Porkchop and their signature Kebabs.

A restaurant that serves dishes from international cuisines as well as all-day breakfast dishes, Bag of Beans is the perfect destination if you love having an abundance of options.

It’s for families who appreciate homey, rustic interiors and comfort food. It’s not for people who are indecisive with ordering food.

4. Terraza of Balay Dako – Emilio Aguinaldo Highway

Last month’s # 6

Terraza of Balay Dako is located on the top floor of the extraordinary dining place, Balay Dako.

It’s for people who want delicious bar food and signature cocktails with a beautiful and classic view of Tagaytay. It’s not for people who aren’t willing to wait a bit to be seated.

Recommended dishes: Sisig na Baboy, their Pizzas, and their Signature Cocktails.

It’s for Titas of Manila who enjoy cocktails paired with delicious bar tapas. It’s not for people who want a light meal.
