Ordered kare kare,tawilis pakbet and halo halo,presentation and flavor was bad as if some instant flavoring was added.vegetables were soaked and soggy,tawilis was not fresh halohalo was so ordinary. Gone are the days when you'd be confident to bring visitors to this place to experience...good food. This visit will definitely be our last.More

There are a lot of items that unavailable such as the paella anf baked mussels. We opted to order the Crispy Kare-Kare and Camaron Rebosado and the Steamed Rice. The steam rice is low quality for the price. The taste of the Kare-Kare is very...different from the original we was served before and the Camaron Rebosado is ok but the sauce is bland like father's joke. The ambiance of the restaurant is old it needs to be rennovated. We understand that due to pandemic there is some cut corners but the cost cutting for the quality of the rice is unacceptable. Overall the price and quality of the food is not worth it.More

We chose this restaurant because apart from the awe inspiring Taal Lake view, it is pet friendly. There is an ample parking space that can accommodate several cars, just have your receipt validated to get a free parking. The food is more on Filipino cuisine,...relyenong bangus is my ultimate favorite and their kare-kare is also a must-try. Food prices are reasonable. We had a great time staying at the Al Fresco area, luckily the weather is cold and it's windy. They allow fur babies to stay only at Al Fresco area, btw but it's perfectly fine. Face mask and face shield are still mandatory though they didn't require rt-pcr test. Alcohol are visibly available in the indoor dining area and washrooms. The only thing that is not up to par is the food serving actually took time, hopefully it will be improved. Kudos!More

Food quality is average, ambience inside the restaurant also average (not suitable for business meeting as there’s a group of people playing music and singing around the table throughout lunch - can’t really have any business discussion); place was also a bit stuffy due to...lack of air conditioning and crowded people. Plus point - the scenic view of the popular Tagaytay volcano viewMore

We ordered crispy pata, chicken adobo, sisig and adobong kangkong (for my vegan daughter), calamares and rice. The adobong kangkong is very satisfactory. The chicken adobo is so-so. The crispy pata is not very crispy. The steamed rice is great, though! perfectly cooked! Josephine's need...to recover its fading glory, fast!More

We had sinigang na baboy, beef kaldereta, pancit canton and rellenong bangus -- a perfect treat for all family members. Food and service is always great. We make it a point to come and dine in this place when we are in this part of...the city.More
