After our beach trip, we were all famished and decided to have dinner at Diner's.

It didn't fail. We ordered 3 bulalo good for 12 people plus 2 orders of chopsuey, 2 orders of pinakbet and rice and it we just spent around 150 each with change pa. Love this resto!

At first we thought their special bulalo worth Php 280 is just for one person. Then we clarified and it was actually good for two people. Taste is good very well with spices. I also tried their lumpiang sariwa and it is served well and with enough sauce. They also offer a cup of brewed coffee free, which is good after eating.

I spent my January 1st with the girls. After having a few bottles of beer, we decided to have a drive to Tagaytay for some Bulalo. We tried Diners.

We ordered one large Bulalo, Tawilis and fruit platter. That was around 3ish in the morning and there were only 2 groups inside the store. Our Bulalo came in just in time followed by the fried tawilis.

Their bulalo was good. Tender meat with flavorful soup. Perhaps they could add more veggies to it since they only put several Baguio beans.

Their Tawilis wasn't that crispy, but it tasted okay. Honestly, that was my first time to eat Tawilis.

Their fruit platter was FTW. We all liked the sliced watermelon and pineapple. No one dared to eat the sour mango though. Lol!

Price was reasonable as we paid not more 1100 pesos. Not bad for a place with unlimited and free kapeng barako. It's free so don't expect them to serve this to you. You have to move and get your own coffee. 128523

Service was a bit slow and I guess they were all tired that day. That was almost 4am so we totally don't mind their service. We just enjoyed the day and the sunrise.

Hot soup for cold weather. This is perfectly one of the bestsellers in Tagaytay. The food was good and they served soup refill. Beef was freshly cooked, and it is really hot which is good. Also, they have complementary coffee. Thus, the service was satisfactory. No tissue (you need to ask first), and the wash room inside the restaurant was broken. Should fix it asap so it will be hassle free to the customers. Still, bulalo was good! Kudos cheffy! 127861๐Ÿฝ127860

When going to tagaytay and looking for a Best bulalo, I suggest you should drop by at diner's. Try their Bulalo and Kare-kare. It taste so good. Be patience Guys! Sobrang tagal ng serve ng Food nila. 1 hour kami naghintay.128514

I might give this restaurant nothing.. Nothing but a piece of unsolicited advice.. TRAIN YOUR SERVERS! 128548128548128548

OK, waiting for almost an hour for So-so foods was forgivable (for me, KERI LANG) they had a jam-packed customers that time so we expected a LITTLE delay on food service, BUT GIVING US A STACK OF WET PLATES AND SPOONS/FORKS, seriously??! YUNG TOTOO PWEDENG HIGUPIN SA OA NG BASA NG MGA PLATO!128548128548128548

So it started to irritate us...

they had FREE kapeng barako to their waiting customers, it was proudly promoted and offered awhile ago at their front door. But inside no one offered and served us. FREE means SELF SERVICE, few to almost no cups at all, no attending server to assist you, no sugar, no cream. Plain coffee plain service tipong "KUMUHA KA KUNG GUSTO MO!"

the main reason why we went upsouth aside for a road-trip, was to experience the BEST SELLING BULALO, true indeed their bulalo was FTW! SABAW PA LANG ULAM NA, the meat was fall-of-the-bone tender. Sizzling Pusit was good too although we were disappointed by its serving, we ordered medium pusit so expectedly it was quite bigger, but they gave us bits of pusits. The rest that we ordered were ordinary.

here comes the MOST ANNOYING PART!

While eating we asked one of the servers for a drinking water. We waited a minute or two, then kuya came back with a pitcher and few glasses, good only for 4, obviously it will not fit to 12people, so we asked for another pitchers of water and waited, and waited.. And waited. no one came back so we called another server and asked for drinking water and waited again and again again..TINITIMPLA PA BA ANG TUBIG??? (Gosh we were nearly choking to death, asan ang katarungan! Good thing we had SABAW pantulak!) BEASTMODE finally ON! One of us decided to went to their counter, nagged the servers then immediately after that, PRECIOUS WATER WERE SERVED. what a Long year OF WAITING!!! Take note: no apology or any thing, look how incompetent their servers were aside for being so inattentive.

SO A STAR RATING FOR YOU. Bulalo saved us and saved the restaurant. VERY POOR SERVICE. ALIGAGA. 128127128078๐Ÿป128078๐Ÿป128514128548

The worst service I have ever received in any restaurant

We wanted to have brunch since my friends and I haven't had breakfast and it was already 12:30PM. So seeing their menu previous to entering we saw that they had "ALL DAY BREAKFAST". Loving this fact and seeing that they had a good selection of breakfast, we went on and got a table. We TRIED to order but then realized that " yes we have ALL DAY BREAKFAST po sir, until 10am" as said by the waiter of the resto.

Honestly, at the point where the waiter said the statement,we should've left already but then we thought of trying out their lunch menu. WORST DECISION EVER, we waited at least an hour for our food, the overall quality of our orders were poor.

NEVER will I come back to Diner's!

NO STARS KUNG PWEDE
Waited 2 hours for our food
110% bad service. PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE. Staff were not apologetic. Ordered at 8:50 pm. Food arrived at 11pm. A lot of people walked out already and we wanted to do the same but my mom is diabetic (and needed to eat) so we stayed.
Ripe mango shake was terrible. Tinipid sa mango. We asked to have it "fixed" but it turned out worse because it became sour.
Meat in bulalo was super tigas. We asked for sabaw and it arrived when we finished eating (sabaw na nga lang EH)
Rice was HILAW. We asked for the bill and it took another 30mins. You had to go to cashier pa to get it. I told the cashier "sasabihin ko po sa mga kilala ko na wag pumunta dito kasi pangit service" she just smiled. :| If it was just me, i would have just walked out after eating -.-

"Sabaw pa lang ulam na!" But we're so pissed off by the staff. Don't make it 24 hrs restaurant if your staff cant do the job.

99% poor service 128078๐Ÿผ
(We were only 4-5 tables that time)

It turns out "self-service"!
- getting glasses & Utensils for our own. (This is not a fast food chain,btw)
- we are still eating but we already ask for the bill and yet "WALA PA RIN" so we just go to the cashier and pay.

we're drunk, we're tired, we are from makati and we travelled tagaytay just to eat bulalo and this is what we get. 128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ128078๐Ÿผ

I almost gave this a two stars the moment i entered the place. At their ordering station, you can see flies. The smell was like of the wet market.

Then we ordered, we waited quite long. And yes, overall it was delicious and the serving is big!

Bulalo: it was quite salty and oily nevertheless you can order a less oily soup. And the meat was really tender and big. A 4 out of 5!

Fried bangus. It was tasty but with the bones... Fish fillet nalang.

Pork paksiw. Very oily pero the meat was tender and big as well.

Chopseuy. Was ok. Not that remarkable

Avocado shake. Yummy. No sugar added so you taste natural bland avocado.

The place wasn't that big inside can accomodate 20-25. Outside you find their parking together with the bahay kubos (considered a dining area) and more langaw. It has bar/karaoke upstairs.

The toilet inside is unusable so you have use the dirty CR outside.

We visited Diner's last January with my family after going to Skyranch since we haven't yet had our dinner coz we were still looking for a place to stay. 128513

Going to my review of the food we had of course their Bulalo, Lechon Kawali, Fried Tawilis, Daing na Bangus and Adobong Pusit. 128077

Food was great its just that during the time that we went there it was really cold to the extent that "namumuo" na yung oil ng bulalo. 128533

Lechon Kawali was really crispy and tasty too. Fried Tawilis was okay since I'm not a fan of it. Adobong Pusit was good. Daing na Bangus was very flavorful as well. 128522

Service was nice too btw during the time that we were there they've got complimentary "barakong kape" which is nice tho I didn't drink a cup of it.

Before eating here, I read some looloo reviews and most of them says that the service was pretty bad. We were passing by Tagaytay when we saw restos that offer Bulalo and instant craving came so we pulled up here and ate dinner.

The service is not that bad; the food arrived for a few minutes but my friend asked for the Mango shake to be served first but instead they served it together with all the food we ordered. We had chosen the Large Bulalo, Lechon Kawali and Pinakbet for our dinner. Bulalo was good and filling, enough for the five of us but the veggies were few. We loved the soup though. I was disappointed with the Lechon Kawali because the serving is so small and mostly comprises of fat. The Pinakbet is quite salty because of the amount of bagoong on top of it. Anyway, the Bulalo had saved the whole dinner.

Overall, I would just recommend the Bulalo since its also quite cheaper than those offered in Mahogany. I don't think that I'd be coming back here if I come to Tagaytay again.

First time to try this even if wenalways pass by it going to Batangas. We decided to have our early lunch here before we have our Manila-Tagaytay-Batangas roadtrip.

Service:
- very slow service! I don't if it's because they just opened when we arrived or it's just their kind of service. We stayed at the second floor and it's kinda annoying since they still continue with the construction work even if they're already open. Disturbing and it ruins the great ambience and cool weather. Next, tables! God! They cleaned it as we arrived and the worst thing is the smell of the rug that they used! We just decided to transfer to other table. Finally, the staff are not that accommodating at all. I haven't seen any smile in their faces! Service is kinda slow also. Not a good start for the day!

Food:
- hats off, the foods were good. We ordered Bulalo (you can request for additional sabaw if you order large), crispy pata, tawilis, lechon kawali and tapsilog. One of the best bulaloI've tried. Beef was tender and soup has a good flavor in it. Other foods that we had were also exceptional. We also tried abocado, watermelon, mango shakes and sago gulaman that really complement with the foods.

Place:
- they actually have a good spot as it has a good view of the Taal volcano. It also has a large space that can be very convenient especially during peak hours.

Overall, the disappointment with the service is somehow overshadowed by the food that we had. I just hope that they read reviews of their customers so that they can improve their service and be at par with what they offer.

Rating: 3/5

Sobrang bagal. Mahigit isang oras ata kaming naghintay sa order namin. Naka sampung follow up na ata kami 128557 Pero ang tagal talaga. Di ko alam kung dahil sa taas kami nakaupo kaya mabagal or mabagal lang talaga sila kahit san ka pumwesto. Gutom na gutom pa naman kami.

In fairness, masarap naman talaga yung bulalo nila. Puro laman. Pwede kayong humingi ng extra sabaw. 128077

We also ordered sisig and chopsuey. Pero if I were you, bulalo nalang orderin nyo 128076 para kasing hindi bagay ang sisig sa bulalo. Suggestion lang naman hehe. Gusto ko itry yung tawilis 128517

Pati pag kuha ng bill, naka 5 follow up ata kami.

So kung ittry nyo dito, siguro dapat di kayo masyadong gutom tsaka dapat mahaba pasensya nyo. Goodluck 128076

Very bad service. We ordered at around 3:45pm but the food arrived at around 5:30pm na. Almost 2 hours of waiting! We're still here pa actually kasi it's taking them forever to wrap the meals that we ordered to take home.

For those not familiar with this restaurant, there are many kubos in the parking lot and none of the waiters stay in the area, in case any diner needs something. So the customers have to go back to the main resto pa.

Anyway, we ordered inside the restaurant before proceeding to our kubo. They said we were 6th in line and we were waiting for our other relatives din, so we didn't mind waiting. After 30 mins or so, my aunt went inside to check on our food and the staff said it's being cooked already. After an hour, my mom decided to follow up our orders again and the staff started "arguing". The cashier said that she thought our food was delivered to our table already but it turned out that they completely forgot about our orders.

My mom waited inside but they didn't start preparing the food 'till my mom started giving them orders. As in "O yung kanin sandukin mo na. Ikaw, yung mga plato ilabas mo na doon. Ikaw naman, ipainit mo na sa microwave yung isda." Hahaha!

My mom asked them kung bakit matagal and they said na "depende po kasi sa waiter na naka-assign sa inyo." E di naman pwede yun. Ang malas lang namin kanina kasi wala sa sarili waiter namin, hindi niya inasikaso. But 'di lang naman siya may kasalanan, the rest of the staff didn't help him or do their jobs either.

My mom also heard them say "sabay-sabay kasi kumain mga tao, nalimutan tuloy namin." If they placed that many kubo, they should have hired enough staff to accommodate the customers. Parang wala din Supervisor or Manager kanina. Or maybe natakot lang sa mommy ko. Haha!

I don't think we'll be coming back soon. Sayang sa oras at sa pera.
