It was my first dining experience in a Tuscan-inspired garden restaurant where a balikbayan friend of so many years took me for a late lunch. After weaving through a garden maze filled with flowery bushes and rare plants easily grown in a Cool Tagaytay climate, we had a three-course meal, a must for a minimum cover charge of P700 per person. For starters, we had Aegean salad, a mix of cool greens with warm grilled pear and sweet cheeses, with pistachios for crunch, and the bread was made from Canadian half-wheat and coconut oil.The bread is a foil to the Spanish beans with cabbage, kidney beans and potatoes, made substantial with slabs of bacon and chorizo. I forgot to take photos of the best appetizer I've ever had: Amalfi Prawns, made of crispy and succulent prawns marinated in salt, pepper, olive oil, parsley, coated with bread crumbs and pan-fried. Our main course was the aromatic grilled liempo and Italian pork chops which we found such a gastronomic delight. For dessert, we had several choices, but I found the Lemon Sponge Pudding and Panna Cotta with lemon sauce too irresistible. Since it was a late lunch, we had the place all to ourselves. We dined at the Sunset Lounge, the best seats to view the sunset. Definitely worth coming back for more.

Great ambience, great views and a magnificent garden with fresh flowers everywhere. It is very rustic looking inside which relaxes you from the start. There are areas outside you can dine at including one area in particular with fantastic views. The Menu has many different hight quality items included in it. The Spanish Soup with Smoked Bacon Bits inside it is a great way to start off. There are many different styles of Lamb dishes you can choose from with the Australian Lamb coming through in each dish. The Wine List has a good variety of Wine on it from different Countries around the World.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my evening there and would highly recommend this Restaurant to anyone who likes great food with a Country atmosphere.

we came back to this place as we were impressed the first time we dined. the location is quite out of the area in tagaytay but as long as you have waze or google map you can easily find it.
there were flowers everywhere which why i love the place. it is one of the best garden restaurant in tagaytay.
the owner of the resto was also accomodating.there were lots of ig photos you can post :) food is great tried the chicken kebab and the soup with bacon. lime pannacotta was also good.
i will definitely come back to this place.

We had no reservations but arrived after 5:00 pm...no problem. The solid wooden door is not the restaurant entrance but the owner's so walk down the driveway and you will see signs to guide you. The walk down is steep by my standards so be careful. Flowers and vegetation welcome you until you see a courtyard and tables on the right. To the left there were other cozy tables and chairs...the area seemed to dark (we wanted to see our food). We selected a table over looking beyond the property...to better enjoy the sunset. I had the tenderloin and bacon kebabs while my wife had the Greek lamb stew which was too bland for her taste. Our set meals included an appetizer and dessert...well worth it. Then the sunset started and we kept focused on the horizon...A wow experience. Throughout our meals, the two resident felines kept us company while begging for food. They looked well fed and healthy. Restrooms were either on the side of the courtyard or by the kitchen.
