Our Taal tour with Yolo Tours provided lunch here and what a treat. The food was superb, the presentation quite lovely and the service second to none. Even had local grown bags of coffee and we bought 3 to bring back.

Our family loves to eat and with our big appetite, a meal as big as Don Juan Boodle House's boodle specials is the perfect choice. Diners have a choice among their specials: Davao (P1499), Inihaw (P1199), Ilocos (P1299), Southern Tagalog (P1199), or Military (P1099). But...More

I think it would be perfect if you will hold a party in Don Juan's restaurant. Especially that they have group meals. I believe they can accommodate your party, but I suggest to contact them for reservations.

Description
About Us Taaleño Mr. Ernesto F. Villavicencio, has always dreamed of opening a restaurant serving quality foods. To get the right formula, he tried franchising different food establishment such as, "Julie's Bakeshop" and "Tapa King". He pursued his dream and opened his own bakery named "Pan's and Company" and a Japanese Restaurant named TAKEHOME. In 1997, Mr. Ernesto F. Villavicencio joined a new business venture, developing a subdivision in his hometown Taal, Batangas. His first project was Hacienda Villas Subdivision. While constructing its clubhouse, Mr. Ernesto Villavicencio's passion of opening restaurant was reignited. "Cafe Eh!" was then born, offering western foods for the homeowners and nearby establishments. In 2009, he looked for a place in Taal poblacion's nearby market to put up his new restaurant. Don Juan BBQ opened on February 9, 2010, offering the best BBQ in town with Taal specialties and other native cuisines. To cater to more Taaleños, the restaurant opened a "Don Juan Food Express" nearby LTO Taal Batangas and "Cafeteria Kokorokok" at Taal Sports Center in Brgy. Halang Taal, Batangas.
