We've heard a lot about Josephine Restaurant so we made sure that we won't let our next Tagaytay trip go by without trying it. And happily we did because: • they have spacious parking area • it has a great view of Taal Lake which you can enjoy indoors & outdoors. Great for taking photos! • it's value for money... More

I have eaten sporadically at Josephine's Tagaytay for over 20 years now; at their old site at Manila Bay, even a lot longer. About 40 years if they haven't left the area. The Tagaytay branch is the only one I know, if they have other branches, I haven't tried. The food, however, is timeless. It has been that way since... More

Josephine restaurant was our first stop in Tagaytay coming from Quezon City. After nearly two hours travel we were quite hungry for good food. When we arrived, we went to the big hall adjacent to the parking. The restaurant was so big nearly a thousand square meters and has a very scenic view of the Taal Lake and the volcano.... More

Came here for dinner. Pretty sure the bulalo soup should be served piping hot but ours was luke warm. We were all hungry so we just dig in. Staff was no where to be found. Extremely painful to get some attention. Pitiful place. Situated at a very good location with nice outdoor landscape and is being ruined with shameful service.... More

Here's a famous place to bring foreigners who wants to experience the Filipino cuisine and ambience. But the line is quite long so best to come a bit early like 11am for lunch and 6pm for dinner

We visited the place in a wee hours, around 9:30pm. The place provides a cozy and warm feeling against the cold wind outside. We are escorted to our table and the crew immediately attend to our orders and needs. Food is delicious and affordable. It has big servings also. Too bad, we have not any chance to watch the Taal...
