My family and I went here for lunch the day before we head back to Manila. It was quite a walk from where the tricycle dropped us, but it was all worth it. The place has the most stunning view, very quite, relaxing and romantic....Food was nice too! A must try place when in BatanesMore

This place have a picturesque setting. The cafe’s interior is also very charming. Food is average but the service is very slow and lucky if you get what you order.

The place is near Fundacion Pacita. There's a lot of spots that you can take a picture while waiting for your food. There's gallery down the cafe and you can see beautiful view outside. Food is pricey but worth it.

I always wanted to check in at Fundacion Pacita but its way past budget so this is another option. Meals are for semi fine dining, it's flavorful and filling. You need to secure a table though to be sure you get a good spot.

Food is pricey but if you’re going to splu neerge for a special event, I’d say it’s worth every centavo. We went on NY’s eve and ordered both their set meals and ala carte from the menu. We liked their Onion Soup, All- Meat Pizza...and Chocolate Mousse! Salad and the fish dish were also great...Needless to say the view added immensely to the ambienceMore

With their farm to table offering, everything is sourced locally, boosting the livelihood and celebrating the authenticity of the local community. Its Manila-price point might be a little deal breaker for some but given then quality and proceeds, overall its worth it.

The food is not bad. But its a little too expensive. The staffs need more training. They are easily rattled or overwhelmed. Great scenic view but still a little too expensive for the price and takes 30-45 minutes to prepare

We had our dinner in this very elegant and romantic restaurant... The scenery on its surroundings is very captivating... A very stylish work of art and architecture...we came before sunset so we are able to feast our eyes on its surroundings, and the art gallery...beneath the restaurant... The food is delicious and the staff is so accomodating...More

The views alone are enough to visit, but the unique local menu seals the deal. We only visited due to having people on our tour bus stay here and recommend. Thanks for the tip, probably the best place we ate while in Batanes.

Well some says that this place is little bit pricey but honestly it's not and honestly this cafe this place I would say one of the best place me and my husband eaten. I'm totally proud of this cafe because this place could give you...high end of food but still they used local products from their farmer/s. One of their best/my most favorite is their steaks and their pumpkin toast especially their bacon OMG it will melt you away when you tried it. To all homemade steaks and bacon I ever taste they have the best. I just wish they could also shared it not only nationwide but over the world.More

Now this is not about their food, which was so healthy i lost weight in the three days we ate there. No Kidding. Healthy organic, not oily etc. Neither is it about the ambience, which was perfect, by the way. Its about a very pleasant...surprise we discovered, courtesy of the trike driver who drove us around for two days. Now imagine staying at Fundacion Pacita for three straight days, and dining at Cafe du Tukon every morning for breakfast, almost every afternoon for their free snacks, every night for dinner, and not knowing that there is an art gallery below it! Seriously! And no one breathed even a word to us; although in hindsight, we also have not asked. I ended up purchasing two paintings by local artists, as souvenir gift to self, of my Batanes trip! Yey! Thanks to Kuya Roland (CP#09183803141). You may ask him to drive u around in his cogon trike whenever u find yourself in Batanes!More

Well presented place with absolutely prestige garden Offer Ivatan cuisine , a must try as they are very delicious. There’s also art museum below the restaurant, a must see . Highly recommend to all passer by. A little out of the way but since it’s...popular , it can be reached by tricycle . A little rough road from the entrance of the property to the restaurant , sometimes tricycle do not want to go in , which we experienced on the way back after dinner.More

This scenic restaurant is best for couples or groups of adults. I recommend trying the Beef and Garlic Rosemary. The Steak Au Poivre is good, but spicy, so don't order this if you have low tolerance! Some of the items on the menu, were not...available, so we had to go with beef selections. It's best if you have a 2nd and 3rd choice before you talk to the attentive staff. Or call them, before you arrive. We had coffee (Lavazza) and dessert to cap our late lunch. Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our anniversary date here and will definitely go back. Notes: 5 AM to 9 PM (last call is at 8). Cash basis only. There's a beautiful art gallery below the cafe. Just use the spiral staircase near the washroom.More
