La Finca Tagaytay–new hidden restaurant with good comfort food, quiet place and view of Taal volcano

La Finca restaurant in Tagaytay City

Me and my wife Lace went out and walked in the streets of Tagaytay City because we spotted a Japanese café and we want to try it because its new here. But after arriving to the café, we learned that it was still under construction and the café will open after a few weeks. Then we saw there’s another restaurant located under the Japanese café, we went there and we saw this La Finca restaurant located at the Domicillo bed and breakfast establishment.


La Finca is a Spanish word means, a farm or an estate. La Finca restaurant opened last March 28, and we discovered this by accident when we dropped by last April 9.


According to La Finca, they are inspired by the farm to table movement and they pays homage to organic and seasonal fresh produce bountiful in its environs. They support our local farmers and they reduce the carbon footprint of their ingredients and offers the freshest of organic greens and herbs.

They offer a variety of salad creations which are both delectable and healthy. But not only salad and herbs, they also offer food with culinary twist of the classics but all of them are delicious mélange of high quality ingredients handed well from farm to table. ( yup I copied some bits from their menu)
Mostly offered are Filipino dishes and comfort food with contemporary plating.

They will also feature local dishes that blooms in seasonal times...hmm that's interesting

La Finca restaurant is the best discovery ever here in Tagaytay City, we thought that we saw already all the dining venues and viewing deck here in Tagaytay, and thanks to La Finca for offering another option if you want to have a nice and peaceful dining experience here in Tagaytay. This city starts to be noisy and busy every weekend due to massive flow of visitors and tourist, I’m glad that we have a new hide out to escape a residue of stress and traffic from Manila.
