Our Rating Method For Food Restaurants Along The Tagaytay Area
From The Map
The fastest way to learn about the Tagaytay tourist area is to look at the map. The areas that are bookmarked from A to E to D cover most of the food stops although they are now expanding into the Santa Rosa area(C). The area that is experiencing more development is the Alfonso area (Book Mark D) which because of the availability of land has restaurants that are off the main tourist roads. It is in this area that the future of Tagaytay will reside in, from restaurants to shops to entire village communities.

Our Rating Method
When my wife and I first started visiting food stops all over the Tagaytay area, we generally had only one question that determined whether we would put it on our list of recommended restaurants: "would we go back there again?" Over time, that question broke down into a set of little questions which we use in rating a food place
Our Rating Guide
Is it accessible from the main road?
Is it a safe and secured area?
Is it a roomy area?
Does it feel comfortable?
Does it have a clean comfort room?
Does the menu carry a wide selection of dishes?
Are the dishes well made and presentable?
Are the personnel helpful and knowledgeable?
Are they clean?
Do we come back ?
Some Of Our Considerations
As we go through a variety of food places, both my wife and I agreed that we would not bother giving them poor or unacceptable marks. Instead, we would just recommend those restaurants we were most happy with, answering our most basic question: "would we come back again to this place?"
What We Love About Tagaytay
Having just moved here a year ago, what my wife and I love most about Tagaytay is the environment of serenity and peace that permeates the farmland and the people. It is close to Manila, without the problems of the city but it does have the modern amenities such as supermarkets and hospitals. Both of us look forward to what each day will bring, and in the meantime, we will continue to explore the countryside for the food stops that make our trip so much more enjoyable.
