Some of nice blog reviews and real life experiences of visitors and guests of Leslies Restaurant in Tagaytay.
Restaurant Review Leslies Restaurant
Conveniently situated along the highway, Leslie’s Restaurant opens its doors to accommodate weary travelers with authentic Filipino food and breathtaking views. The cool air this time of the year offers the perfect excuse to indulge in body-warming food the restaurant has to offer — this meant more protein-rich food were of priority for us.
The ambiance is very Filipino, as it features a Nipa Hut inspired spacious interior with wooden chairs and tables to go along with it. The restaurant is seated on a cliff with quaint little outdoor huts overlooking Taal Lake and the famous Taal Volcano.
The dishes were in large servings, typical of the Filipino extended family setting. The taste of the dishes were not of the extraordinary but the scenery and the warm Filipino feel and taste made up for it.
Bulalo At Leslies Restaurant Tagaytay
The main attraction of Tagaytay is the view of Taal Volcano, which could be seen along the edge of the outer crater. I’m not sure if “outer crater” is the appropriate term, but I have to hazard a guess considering that Taal Volcano is known as the “volcano within a volcano” or, its related phrase, “the lake within a lake”.
The lake could be viewed from the viewing platforms of various establishments along the ridge. I usually bring my guests to the Taal Vista Hotel, Josephine’s Restaurant, Starbucks or, our favorite destination because of its gastronomical bonus — Leslie’s Restaurant.
It’s easy to get carried away with the view, but let’s get back to the gastronomical bonus: Bulalo. Tagaytay is near the province of Batangas and Batangas is known in the Philippines for its beef. Bulalo is the marrow in the bone of the beef shank. So what to do you get? All-year round supply of bulalo at your favorite destinations in the area. Of course, bulalo is served in other restaurants, but Leslie’s is my default place.
How to go there? It’s hard to miss Leslie’s when you go up to Tagaytay. It comes before Bag of Beans and Sonya’s Garden if you’re coming from the Sta. Rosa, Laguna or the South Luzon Expressway. You’ll find this sign at the left side of the road, near the area of heavy concentration of restaurants.
Leslies Restaurant Tagaytay do also offer a place within their restaurant wherein, you can rent it for special occasions or gatherings. It is a perfect place for wedding reception and/or ceremonies.
