Here's a famous place to bring foreigners who wants to experience the Filipino cuisine and ambience. But the line is quite long so best to come a bit early like 11am for lunch and 6pm for dinner

It was the holiday season so we had to bear with the traffic and holiday rush, but the sumptous meal was all worth it. Don't forget to order their crispy kare-kare, bulalo and of course, our all time favorite, crispy tawilis!

We visited the place in a wee hours, around 9:30pm. The place provides a cozy and warm feeling against the cold wind outside. We are escorted to our table and the crew immediately attend to our orders and needs. Food is delicious and affordable. It has big servings also. Too bad, we have not any chance to watch the Taal...

Taken by surprise by the tasty Filipino cuisine - truly home styled. Great view and ambience. Reserve a window seat early on as it gets crowded. Terrace tables are nice too as the air is pleasantly cool enough to sit out. Skip the cakes which are a big disappointment given the nice meals we had.

Me and my husband love to eat a lots. And I can say Josephine Restaurant is one of the best restaurant in Tagaytay. You should try their Bulalo its the best.

Josephine's is one of the first restaurants in Tagaytay. All through the years, they have maintained the quality of their food and service and I rate it very good. Everytime we visit the place, whether for lunch or dinner, we choose between the bulalo or sinigang na baboy, grilled tuna belly or boneless bangus, grilled squid and crispy pata and... More

Great bulalo. The rest of the dishes are good you. There's a view deck outside where you can have a great view of the volcano. The service is good too.

Had a small group of about 7 people. This was a very nice resturant. I do not remeber if it was expensive or not. It kind of didn't matter, because that's where we decided to eat. The food was very good and the service as with most place was good. We were very satisfied upon departure. I would return.

Still our favorite is their mutya or seafood bouillabaisse. Ambiance is nice with a view of taal volcano. But it is always full since it is one of the first and well known restaurants in the area. But traffic getting there is really bad. Service is ok. They also serve buffet breakfast and lunch but only till 2pm
