Family of four (2 adults, 1 x 17 y.o. + 1 x 15 y.o.) The buildings and gardens are fantastic. Sadly it was raining when we visited, but umbrellas were provided gratis. The paths are well made, so we still had a great time looking around. In fair weather we could've easily spent a whole day in these gardens - truly beautiful. Apart from the plants and flowers, we saw large numbers and varieties of delightful fauna.

Comfortable seats and table, and an open-sided dining room which we loved. Drinking water is kindly provided foc. High quality clean toilets and hand basins. Hygiene in dining room and kitchen was all as it should be.

We were warned service was slow here, so asked how long it would take for the food to arrive before ordering. Although we were told 15 minutes, the first dishes took 45. In fact all of the food for 1/2 of our party arrived, while the other 1/2 waited another 20 minutes. The general quality of the food we were served was merely adequate.

We are all vegetarians, so selected from the "vegetarian" section of the menu. We not only explained we were all vegetarian when we ordered, but stated we were medically allergic to fish and meat + byproducts. But one main dish was served with prawn crackers pressed in to the "vegetarian" food. I informed the management of these issues, but the only resolution offered was a form to fill in! I completed it, and provided an email address. But nearly a month later I have yet to be contacted.

Without these problems I would've rated Gardina borderline ***/****

The restaurant doesn't have a cash register and it takes forever just to get the bill. They have to do everything manually. It's such a disappointment for a famous resort to be so old school.

When you are in North Sulawesi and have a chance to visit Tomohon, do not forget to stop this garden-style restaurant. The owner herself cook and design the garden with love. The stunning Lokon volcano will be a breathtaking view accompanying your breakfast/lunch/coffee break.
