After lunch in Antonio’s Grill, we weren’t quite ready yet to let go of our Tagaytay weekend. So we whiled away the beautiful Sunday afternoon in Cliffhouse Tagaytay. It’s one of my favorite places in the Tagaytay ridge area because despite Tagaytay being otherwise usually jammed on Sunday afternoons, the Cliffhouse still remains relatively quiet and the crowd not too uncomfortably large.
Cliffhouse Tagaytay has the right mix of restaurants that seamlessly blend together with the outdoor/ garden eating areas. The common courtyard spaces are well-planned and suited together, unlike other establishments clustered together in the Tagaytay Ridge. Cliffhouse was designed well enough that it wasn’t noisy nor didn’t feel too crowded even if there were families and groups milling about.
I especially like the view of Taal Lake from Cliffhouse, only because there were not too many people crowding it, despite it being a Sunday afternoon.
On that afternoon, we tried out Cafe Platito, one of the newer establishments in Cliffhouse. I liked their charming outdoor garden set-up.
I ordered brewed coffee to go with the Mocha Torte (P68), which is one of their bestsellers. I thought it was very cheap at P68 and it looked really big from the menu pictures. But the actual size didn’t live up to the menu photo and the cake was too sweet for my taste.
Other restaurants in Cliffhouse are Fling frozen yogurt, Mochiko (where we got a mochi ball for P70), a steak place called Fire Lake Grill (which I’ve already tried for dinner on a previous Tagaytay visit), and an Italian restaurant named Buon Giorno (which I would have loved to try out if only we haven’t had lunch already). Buon Giorno has an excellent view of Taal Lake, with a very charming ambiance, and has received good reviews.

We also made inquiries on room rates at The Inn At Cliffhouse Tagaytay. The rooms were super expensive —and given the mixed reviews online, I don’t think I will risk the high prices 🙁
Since we weren’t that satisfied with the food in Platito, we couldn’t resist hopping over to Cafe Breton, where we cooled off the hot afternoon with the incomparable La Delice (my favorite!), iced coffee for me, as well as some apple juice.
Always with a grateful heart to be able to spend Sunday afternoons out in the sun, surrounded by nature, with heartwarming food, and filled with love. Cheers! 🙂
