We attended a wedding in Tagaytay last weekend. We saw it as an opportunity to visit Antonio's and try their much talked about restaurant.
It was located a few minutes away from the main road. Good thing they put up distinguishable signs; otherwise we would never have found it.
The meal costs around 2,000 - 4,000 per person, depending on what you order -- pretty steep for Philippine standards. But the meal was sumptuous and well worth every penny. Chef Tonyboy Escalante visited our table and said hi, but I was so star strucked that I forgot to take a picture with him. I guess we just need to visit again.
Sangria, frozen mojito, house salad and some frothy soup with pancetta. Their sangria was better than the recipe I make (which I think is really good). But the mojito was just okay. The salad was amazing. I can eat that any time, every day -- I guess less the beets -- I never was a fan of beets anyway. The soup was so-so.
Here's a lovely sitting area in the garden with a chandelier hanging from a tree. I'd love to have this in my home someday.
