We arrived quite late in Tagaytay City, it was around 2:00 pm. Since we were already very hungry, we proceeded directly to Josephine Restaurant .

We have been here several times and we always have a great lunch. I really like this place, which definitely lives up to its name by offering the tradition of serving the finest Philippine cuisine and fresh seafood the way Lolas (Grandma) used to make them.

The restaurant offers a comfortable setting, and is the perfect place to spend time with family and friends. Diners will feel right at home in the casual upscale atmosphere. The area is spaciously designed with main dining room, bar, private room and a large patio with a superb view of the Taal Volcano and the surroundings.

We ordered steamed rice (Php 60.00), calamares pritos (Php 220.00), pork sisig (Php 220.00), sinigang baboy (Php 240.00), and sorbeturon (Php 90.00) for dessert. The food was excellent. The dessert was very appealing and was the highlight of my lunch. We were very relaxed, comfortable and dawdling while we savored the food. For drinks we had Cucumber Cooler (Php 80.00) and Josephines Ice Tea (Php 70.00). Ten percent service charge are not yet included.

After we had our lunch, we walked around for a bit and I took photos swiftly before we headed to T-House.

Aside from a la carte, they also offer breakfast and lunch buffets on weekends.

    Hi, which one is better, Josephine's restaurant or Cafe on the ridge (Taal Vista Hotel)? Thanks a lot.

  2. Hi B,

    Josephine is good, but I haven't been to Cafe on the Ridge yet, so I can't compare the two.
