Lunch buffet at Celina’s Café and Restaurant - holiday tripcation in Tagaytay part 5

December 22, 2013 – This is the start of our day 2 tripcation here in Tagaytay City. Me and Lace did some research about some restaurants here in Tagaytay,and we spotted Celina’s Café and Restaurant offering a lunch buffet for a price of Php325 per person. We read some reviews from different blogs about Celina’s and according to them the food is okay and the price is affordable, after the blogs, we decided to go there because my wife is craving for some good bulalo and papaitan food.

Mama and Liza arrived here in Tagaytay to join with our trip and they asked us where we will eat our lunch, then we suggested that we should try Celina’s.

The food here in Celina’s is nothing special, its just a carinderia style buffet, but for me that’s okay, the most important thing is that my tummy got full after lunching there and I love their Chicken pastel food.
Some of their food got less taste, but I think its their style just for you to adjust if you want a sweet or salty food. The Php325 rate is so funny, because they didn’t honor Mama’s senior citizen card to get discounts because the original buffet price is Php600 and they cut it off to 50% off, it’s a bit weird that they have a billboard and it says that their buffet price is Php325. But that’s okay…. if you have that amount in your pocket and want to eat some good food, especially if you want to slurp and bite over pinoy meals, then I suggest you check Celina’s café and restaurant.

A barkada group meal here is fine, but not recommended for people who are PRO foodie.

Price is okay…food is fine… free viewing deck and free live music is a thumbs up

Celina’s café and restaurant is located along the Tagaytay highway and sit next to Gerry’s grill restaurant and infront of Robinsons Summit Ridge.

As we enter the restaurant, I noticed that the set up is for wedding or debut. Then I realized that this resto specializes in food catering to seasonal events and celebration. Celina’s also offer their resto as a venue for party and wedding parties.

They have a trio of musicians playing modern and old songs to their guest. Feel free to give them a tip, if you gave a tip, they will ask you to request 3 songs for them to perform live. Giving a tip is not a requirement, you can say thank you to them after playing a song.

The trio is now playing some live music infront of us, we gave them Php100 for a tip, then he told us that we can request three songs. They know some of the modern songs, but not One Direction songs.
