To summarize a standard visit here- Filipino comfort food- Ensalada Talong, Kare Kare Baka, Sinagong Bangas, Lumpia, ETC that satisfies the Seniors need for it. Nothing great but not bad either. Service suffices but nothing to write home about.

Place, needs an update especially the entrance area doesn't look welcoming. The outdoor area is promising too, but needs to be decorated better. Food, still very good! Staff, amazing service! Their peanut kisses is a must try!

You have to be prepared to eat a lot . Seafoods are my favorite . It was a Saturday so it was so busy . The food at this place is delicious.

Tagaytay will always have a place in my heart. I live the weather, the scenery and the food. And one of the places offering the best of these three is joaephine's. Great food with a great view of the Taal Lake
