What do you look forward in going to Tagaytay? Lovely view? Cold weather? Religious stop-over? Outdoor activities? Gastro adventure?
So many things to do but one of the things we always anticipate with the trip is the dining experience. Just so many restaurants exclusively situated in the area that are worth visiting! What’s on your list of Tagaytay’s dining euphoria?
If you are off to a healthy meal, Sonya’s Garden is the ideal stop for you. The endless flow of salad, bread, pasta, desserts as turon and chocolate cake, and dalandan jucie can fill your tummy but won’t make you feel heavy afterwards. Sonya’s is also one of the top choices for wedding reception; the venue whether you are to attend a wedding or just to have lunch is truly romantic. Just within the vicinity you can find the bakery and apothecary sections for bread and scent shopping, respectively.
Cuisine: Healthy Italian and Filipino Fusion
Address: Barangay Buck Estate, Alfonso, Cavite
My son loves their corned beef way too much! That is his order when we dine in and he would still request for a take-out fresh pack. For us, their salad dressing (pineapple mustard yogurt) with breadsticks is a joy to munch; the tapsilog; the burger; and the endless strong coffee refill with fresh milk and muscovado on the side. The view of Taal from your resto-seat adds up the fun.
Cuisine: American (Traditional), Breakfast, Brunch and Filipino
Address: Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway, Tagaytay, Cavite
Another cozy venue to check is Cafe Voi La. The place is kaleidoscope bright, even the small detail as their water glass brings color to the place. Pomelo salad, ribs, and kare-kare are enticing meals as it sounds! Slice of cake is good for two and perfect with their cup of hot latte.
It is beside the newly-opened Coffee Bean yet Voi La should come as a natural choice when in Tagaytay.
Cuisine: Asian Fusion
Address: Crosswinds, Tagaytay City
Amoroma (means “I love Rome”) serves real Italian thin-crust pizza that is delizioso! Take a slice of 5-formaggi, Bianca (with cream cheese based topped with sliced salame) and Pesto (with cream or tomato, parmesan cheese, home-made pesto). Pasta and soup are great too. There is just one disappointment, there are many times that the order won’t be available. Sad, usually our favorite would come out of stock. Hope they get to improve their inventory system.

Mer-ben Tapsilogan sa Tagaytay
They started with a Bulalo eatery that looks like a canteen with about 4 bahay kubo (nipa hut) cottages around the store. Now they have expanded with a real restaurant-size venue and additional nipa stalls over the extended lot. I’ve read a lot of bad reviews about Mer-Ben and it can only be a bit true to us because there are times when service is poor but still, the hot bulalo servings seals the search. Maybe it was just luck that the service we’ve experienced was not so terrible versus the online comments; we never eat here over a crowded weekend, never!
