Lemon and Olives Greek Taverna is Baguio’s first authentic Greek restaurant, headed by Chef Takis who came all the way from Athens, Greece. It’s for romantic dates or cozy meals with friends and family, most especially for Greek cuisine fanatics who can tell when it’s the real deal. It’s not for breakfast dates as the restaurant opens at 11am. Our insider tip: Dine al fresco to enjoy the full Baguio dining experience.

Foggy Mountain Cookhouse is a hidden gem, nestled along the residential area of San Carlos Heights. Chef Babes Reyes decided to open up his own home and his front porch and provide a private dining experience, preparing Mediterranean-inspired dishes from his own personal recipes. It’s for families and couples who love the sunset, because if you catch the golden hour, you’ll be treated to a view of the Cordilleran sunset. It’s not for people who are scared of heights or who have an aversion to a chilly breeze. We recommend their Porchetta, Truffle Pasta, and Brick Oven-Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb. Insider tip: This restaurant is strictly by reservations only, so reserve at least a day ahead and pre-order your dishes.

When a restaurant gets back-to-back recognition in Miele’s Best Restaurants in Asia Awards, you know you have to see what all the fuss is about. Hill Station is a fusion of European, American, and Asian cooking helping you explore the world through its plates and the casual Baguio-style cabin setup. It’s perfect for family dinners and intimate gatherings over 5-star dishes. It’s not for those relying on a tight budget. We recommend the Cambodian Coriander & Garlic Chicken and any of their signature desserts. Here’s a fun fact: Much has been said regarding Casa Vallejo’s ghostly apparitions in the area, as it was an old colonial structure in the early 1900s.

50’s Diner is an American retro diner filled with pop culture memorabilia such as posters of American icons, neon lights, a jukebox and even a red buggy. The whole vibe is reminisent of diners with servers on skates. Their menu includes steaks, pastas, fish and chips – as well as some Pinoy comfort food favorites. It’s for the young and the old who appreciate the throwback. It’s not for people who want a quiet and relaxed space to chill in. We recommend the Guys on the Hood, Gangsta Gangsta and their milkshakes. Our insider tip: Avoid over-ordering as servings of some dishes are already good for sharing.

Arca’s Yard is a bed and breakfast, a cozy library cafe that serves unique and healthy dishes, and a mini-museum that showcases the Igorot culture and personal antique collection of owner Ninja Sabado and her family. It’s an escape pad from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It’s not for people looking for a late night drinking place. We recommend their signature Camote Pie and coffee, and also their Rhubarb ice cream, if they’re in season. Insider tip: beside Arca’s is a Japanese art studio gallery where artist Asao Shimura holds workshops for both kids and adults alike.

Amare La Cucina is an Italian restaurant famous for its traditional slow-cooked pizza and baby back ribs. Though it’s not in the heart of the city, a lot of people still visit the restaurant for its uniqueness and their traditional way of cooking. It’s for Italian cuisine lovers who want to try novelty pizzas in Baguio. It’s not for people who want multiple cups of rice to supplement their meal. We recommend the White Pizza, Wagyu Pizza and the Foie Gras with Truffle Oil pizza. They have so many unique flavors. Our insider tip is that they even have a nutella-based pizza to satisfy your sweet tooth.

When talking about Baguio’s must-try restaurants, Café by the Ruins has always been part of the list – serving natural and local ingredients that embody its way of cooking that is distinctly BaguioIt’s for people who want to taste authentic local dishes that tell something about the region’s culture. It’s not for guests who have a deep stomach and a bottomless appetite. We recommend the Pinikpikan, which is chicken soup used in rituals by natives, and the Baguio Bagnet with Padas bagoong, tomato relish, and lime. Our insider tip is to try getting their guava preserve jam as pasalubong from your long weekend adventures.

Baguio Craft Brewery is a restobar and microbrewery that serves craft beers developed and created by Xavierbier, a group of six like-minded individuals from three different countries driven by the desire to make their mark on the emerging craft beer culture in the Philippines. They also offer comfort food to perfectly match your beer. It’s for yuppies looking for a place to unwind with great food and drinks. It’s not for underaged kids or people who are looking for a quiet place to stay. We recommend the Keywheat and Kraken. For first-timers or those who can’t decide, try ordering their Tasting Tray. Our insider tip is that they regularly rotate brews that are on tap, and add new ones as inspiration strikes its master brewers.

Choco-late de Batirol is a Filipino garden cafe that’s said to be the home of the best hot chocolate in the Philippines. It’s for ambient breakfasts or a chilly afternoon merienda date. It’s not for late nights and drinking sessions. We recommend the Suman, Turon, and Red Egg and Tomato Salad. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their customer-recommended orange flavored tsokolate as well. Our insider tip is to visit on weekends for live acoustic music. Fun Fact: Batirol is a traditional wooden rod used to make the tsokolate thick, hence the name Choco-late de Batirol.
