My girlfriends and I decides on a weekend trip to tagaytay with no plans but to have fun. We searched the net and found this pretty restaurant which turned out to be great.

5/5 stars for ambiance! We were expecting it to be crowded as it was a saturday and we went exactly during lunch time but lo and behold the place still felt cozy and had enough room for us. Bonus points that it was still quiet and we can still have our usual chika.
The food did not disappoint! We tried 3 meals on the menu and we only had good comments about everything! From plating to serving size, everything was good!
We were first served with complimentary bread with salsa which surprisingly works well together. The bread was freshly baked with a crunch exterior and fluffy and light interior. The salsa had just the right amount of tangy-ness and sweetness that perfectly blends with the bread.
It was so good that we actually finished the whole thing. I think the server got shocked because 3 dainty ladies finished it in 3 minutes.
Next that came was my friend’s pork spare ribs (495 pesos)
It was tender and it had the sweet barbeque taste to it. The bananas were prepared well it was crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.
Next was my garlic beef tapa (375 pesos)
The beef tapa was sweet and salty. Perfectly blends together and best served with egg. I am very picky with beef tapa and this one is among the best ones!
It was tender and wasn’t hard to chew. Dip this in vinegar and yesss breakfast from the heavens.
The egg was served with a runny yolk. The way most people want it but I prefer it to be a little more cooked but I don’t mind, it did not have the slimey gooey texture that I don’t like.
Next was eggs benedict (395 pesos)
The price may seem pricey with food ranging from 300-700 per dish but the food was worth the price. The taste and the serving size justifies the high price point.
10/10 for service, waiters were alert and were knowledgeable about their menu and restaurant. They were patient with the customers and served fast.
Shout out to CJ, the waiter who served us because he was probably too eager to serve which made us laugh.
Overall, I recommend this restaurant! Would definitely go back, probably with my boyfriend ’cause it’s a nice date place. Food was great and the ambience was superb 👍🏻👍🏻
