The first time I tried Cafe Veranda was during a corporate event I attended and I really enjoyed their food. I made a mental note to return not only to the restaurant but to stay in the hotel as well. I finally got around to doing it and it was thoroughly enjoyable. My wife and I tried their buffet lunch...

Staffs are all friendly. The food is somewhat lacking in identity but nonetheless good. the prices are not that high either. go here... More

It was a very disappointing dining experience. Calamares which my son described as "rubber bands", asked for hot water three times before getting it, the burger didn't come with promised side dishes, pizza crust was hard as rock, shall I go on? The other couple times we have been there were actually great experiences. In fact, hubby said it's the... More

Our family often comes here whenever we have balikbayans we want to take out. The buffet is more on Filipino delicacies and they have a Philippine cultural show on weekends you can watch for free while dining. The show was fun to watch as they so involve their audience. Diners get to try to dance "tinikling" and often foreigners and... More

This restaurant serves one of the best and tastiest Filipino cuisine in Tagaytay City. From soup to dessert one will never want to leave their table. They even offer a Filipino Heritage Cuisine for those who opt to have traditional local dishes such as Dinuguan with Puto, Lumpiang Sariwa among others. Plus, they have free wifi with superfast connection.

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times over the past 10 years and since my last visit in 2011, I was surprised to notice the difference in the favors and freshness of the food served at the breakfast and lunch buffets. My colleagues noticed as well! Good job in revamping your menu / kitchen -- just the right amount... More

As part of my husband's birthday weekend treat, we had lunch at Cafe on the Ridge at Taal Vista Hotel. He liked the food very much. First off, there was pretty and healthy salads of all sort. Lechon or roasted pork was crispy and to die for. Dumalagang manok had an exquisite taste. Brazo de Mercedes, Maja Blanca desserts were... More

The food quality was amazing, service was very good and of course the views were superb. If you are not a good eater don't go for the buffet, try the ala carte instead.

Again out of curiosity ,we finally tried their lunch today .Nothing special about the foods laid in their buffet table.Mostly Filipino dishes, like their pork loin roast, karekare, steamed Fish and some other Filipino Cuisines. I saw some sushi but have not tried it. Their appetizers were not that good also, imagine finding a Mexican burrito in array of some... More
