Tagaytay Restaurants With Al Fresco Dining

Tagaytay City has been the favorite getaway place of all the city dwellers from the Metro because of its cool climate and picturesque view. But aside from the tourist attractions, resorts, and leisure properties, Tagaytay City has more to offer in terms of cuisine from the top restaurants in the city. That is one of the reasons why most tourists desire to visit Tagaytay City, not only to see the breathtaking scenery but also to taste the city’s delectable cuisine in different restos and cafes in Tagaytay. You may choose from Filipino, Mediterranean, Asian to European cuisines from different vibrant restaurants in the area. However, due to the pandemic, most restaurants in Tagaytay can only accept take-out orders, food deliveries, and drive-thru customers. Fortunately, several restaurants provide al fresco dining, allowing you to dine and eat your food while admiring Tagaytay’s magnificent landscape.

Given that the pandemic is here to stay, it’s important to take additional precautions while going outside. If you’re going to Tagaytay with your family and friends, it’s preferable to enjoy your lunch or dinner outside in the open and safer spaces of restaurants with al fresco dining areas rather than inside. So here are some restaurants in Tagaytay with al fresco dining areas where you can dine while maintaining social distancing.
