It was my first time here and fortunately they accept walk-ins since the family was out hunting for a restaurant in Tagaytay the last minute. Even when they do, I think it is still a must to get seats reserved ahead so you can have a better dining experience-- with a view and away from creepy crawlies falling on your food. For the food, it can be a little pricey. Minimum is 700php with an appetizer and dessert included. Some options, however, requires additional payment but I assure you that every peso is so worth it.

For the appetizer, I ordered the lettuce chips with yoghurt dip (?) And it was good and bitin 128528 then for the main course, I orded chicken kebabs. IT WAS THE BEST TASTING, TENDER AND MOST FLAVORFUL KEBABS EVER 128546128546128546 the serving was just right and I enjoyed it very much. For the dessert, I ordered the lemon cheesecake (had to add 90php for it) and it was good. The consistency wasn't runny nor too soft with the right amount of zest. I loved it here so much huhu

It has been quite some time since I was last here. Had a sudden craving for their Italian pork chop, hence, the visit. I had my usual appetizer- Amalfi prawns, tasty and succulent. I was soooo looking forward to my pork chop, but to my utmost disappointment, when i cut through the meat, bloody juice oozed out. I called the attention of the server, she came back to ask me if they would change it or will they just cook what they served me earlier. To save time, I opted for the latter... bad choice...bad indeed... meat was already overcooked and tough when it came back. First time this ever happened here, in the number of times I have been in this place...I am hoping this is just an isolated occurrence. 128532

marcia adams is one of the secret restaurant gardens in tagaytay. i really love the place because of its cozy and homey feel but the food is kinda expensive though. There is a minimum amount per person 700.00 each for a set meal which comes with a dessert, main course meal and appetizer. With the location and the taste of the food i can say its really worth it!!! 128525

Perfect date place in Tagaytay area! We stayed in the balcony area and enjoyed the lush green scenery!

They offer complimentary freshly baked bread to be dipped in olive oil and balsalmic vinegar.

The Italian porkchop was huge! It can be shared by 2 people but the meat was hard because of the thickness of the cut. It is better to get the other porkchop. The lamb stew was just so-so! Each main course comes with an appetizer and dessert.

The lemon pannacotta is yummm! Good balance between sweet and tangy!

Each person will probably spend about 800 pesos. Although a but pricey, the view and vibe of the restaurant makes it worth it! They are also under renovation to turn the restaurant into a bed and breakfast!

Marcia Adams is a restaurant in Alfonso, Cavite just a few blocks (Sikat Rd.) to your right after passing the boundary of Tagaytay and Alfonso. The place was just a couple of meters from the National Rd. It has about 4-5 capacity of parking spaces but you are allowed to park on the side of the street near it (park at your own risk). The place was great it reminds me living with my Lolos and Lolas again. It was very nostalgic. This restaurant has a lot of picture-perfect sites on its Tuscany-inspired theme. The food was great and worth every penny for it. For just 700 up consist the appetizer, main course, and desert. There is also a complimentary food waiting for you. This place is worth visiting again and again, I would love to drive from Manila for a couple of hours just to dine in this cozy place.

P.S
Been here thrice already. 128513128513128513128513

Marcia Adams is one of those places that makes you believe in 'love at first sight'. This place is really picturesque with every corner screaming in character, calmness and romantic feels. What made my visit even more memorable and perfect was that I got to spend it with my family and future in-laws. Nakakatuwa!9786

We got at least 4 orders of Italian porkchop, grilled aromatic pork, carbonara special and fish souvlaki. I thought it was pricey at first but when the orders came, everything was good for sharing. I only tried my fish souvlaki and Joe's Italian porkchop and they were both delicious! The chops were at least 1.5 inches thick without losing its' juiciness and flavor. The fish kebabs, perfectly marinated with lemon and herbs, were surprisingly filling too!

For our desserts, we almost got everything on the menu. But the stand-outs were the strawberry yogurt ice cream, lemon cheesecake and fried bananas with chocolate dip. Really refreshing on the palate after a scrumptious meal.128522

It was unfortunate that it drizzled a bit and we got attacked by moths at the end of our meal/dessert. And it was funny how we ruined the ambiance of the place from all the screaming and running + carrying of plates to transfer to the other side of the resto. Nakakaloka!128514 But overall, it was a wonderful dining experience!

We tried to cover as much of the menu as we could...everything was good! But I would come back for the Classic Shiz Kebab and the Italian pork chop!

Love this place! The Italian Pork Chop is divine! It's soooo tasty and heavy! Worth the price of 795! 9786️ it comes with an appetizer and dessert too! I had the Hummus with Whole Wheat Tortillas (not in any of the photos) for the appetizer and the Panacotta for dessert 128525 you'd think it's expensive at first but since it comes with an appetizer and dessert, it comes out reasonably priced 9786

Mika B had the Steak with truffle butter! 128561 sooooo good! The serving is huge!!! A bit on the pricier side but it was mouthwatering good! 128513

The ambiance is amazing too! I think it's a really cute date place or the perfect venue to catch up with friends 10084️ the staff are really nice and very accommodating too 9786

Definitely worth a visit when in Tagaytay 128513

Not too late for a Marcia Adams sortie. 128517
The place is a lush garden type resto like Sonya's garden, a former home converted to a diner. Choose your dining place in terms of interiors and vibe from Greek, to French and Tuscan. I liked the Tuscan.

The meal is perfect here with serene surroundings, able wait staff and deliciously done meals like my beef tenderloin with bacon. Mains come in sets and you choose your appetizer and dessert to come with it at a premium price. The panna cotta with lemon sauce was the best I had in years. Tuck within the hilly sides of Alfonso Cavite. I saw construction of what seems to be a 3 storey annex with good perfect views of the plain below and sunset. One good reason to come back here once it's done.

I believe, this place is one of the best place i've eaten in. My girlfriend brought me here and I'm ecstatic to share that I couldn't have asked for a better first here. The place was quaint, romantic, and it had this vibe that as if you are in a different country. I had shrimp for my appetizer. It looked good to start with and even more amazing when i started eating it. Next up, i had Italian Pork Chop. If i tasted right, it was spiced with pepper, garlic salt, and fennel seeds. And it was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend this place, especially when you're in a getaway vacay with your sweet other.

They have REALLY GOOD porkchops out here.

Please do not be confused with the pricing. They have a minimum P700 for a 3-course meal (appetizer, main, dessert), but the actual price will vary depending on the main course you order. So if the porkchop is P785, then you pay P785 for the appetizer, main, and dessert-- not P700. I was quite surprised when the bill came.

For their mains, Don't get the lamb stew (it's like a mild, runny lamb kaldereta and not good for P950). Their kebab was just okay but not worth its price (it was P950.) That Pork chop was awesome as mentioned earlier. P785 and it's no competition.

Appetizers were good as well, we had the hummus with toasted pita (whole and wheat). Forgot what the other one was.

For desserts, I especially enjoyed the panna cotta and grilled orange with vanilla ice cream. Banana split with chocolate ice cream was.. Well it is what it is.

Great ambience. I wish looloo can give an option to post more than one photo, I just have so many of this place!

Service was okay. 4 different servers asked if we had reservations and saying yes four times just wasn't cool.

Our Tagaytay staycation turned food indulging trip started at Marcia Adams for lunch. I'm not sure if they accept walk-ins but prior our visit, I already made reservations for 4.

This hidden gem is located near the boundary Cavite and Tagaytay. The restaurant does not have a sign outside except for a small one across the street so you might miss it out. Better use Waze. 128521

The ambiance of this quaint, Tuscany-inspired restaurant is very relaxing and cozy. We chose a table at the outside dining area where we enjoyed an amazing view of lush, green gardens while stuffing ourselves with good food.

A minimum cover charge of P700 for a three-course meal is a must for all guests. This includes your choice of appetizer, main entree and dessert. My family and I made sure we order different dishes so we can at least try everything.

While waiting for our food, they served us complimentary bread with balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil. Soft, freshly baked with a crispy crust. Yum!

Appetizers:

128261 Tzatziki with Lettuce Chips
Creamy and tangy yogurt dip with cucumber and garlic, served with lettuce chips on the side. The chips was surprisingly good! A better and healthier alternative to potato chips. My sister who never liked vegetables enjoyed this a lot (without the dip though).

128261 Hummus with Whole Wheat Tortilla
Chickpeas, garlic and oil with grilled whole wheat tortillas. The hummus was creamy and garlicky although I found the taste a bit weird. 128517

128261 Amalfi Prawns
4 crispy prawns marinated in olive oil, salt, pepper, parsley, coated with bread crumbs, and pan fried. It was delicious! Prawns were succulent and cooked perfectly. Simple yet impressive dish. It's not part of the free appetizers so you have to pay additional P75.

Mains:

128261 Fish Souvlaki
Mom chose their blue marlin souvlaki. Two sticks of lean, evenly grilled fish served with tzatziki and steamed rice. Fish was marinated in olive oil, lemon and herbs giving it a fresh, savory flavor.

128261 Classic Chicken Kebab
My pick! Grilled chicken marinated in olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, oregano and lemon. The chicken meat remained tender and moist after grilling, plus it's full of herb-infused flavors. Loved it! No need to dip it in tzatziki.

128261 Grilled Aromatic Pork
My dad liked it! It's BELLY meaty, tender and tasty. 128541

128261 Italian Porkchop
Another must-order! I tried a piece from my sister's plate and I must say it's one of the best I've tried. A huge slab of grilled loin seasoned with fennel and pepper that definitely did not disappoint. This bone-in chop has an ideal fat and lean meat ratio to keep it juicy and more flavorful.

Desserts:

128261 Panna Cotta
I initially ordered Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream but it wasn't available. Waiter suggested Panna Cotta instead since it's their bestseller. It was divine! 128525 The sweet-tart lemon sauce complements the smooth, creamy panna cotta perfectly.

128261Fried Banana with Chocolate Dip
Fried bananas served with a dark chocolate dip. Mom was too full to finish her dessert.

128261Grilled Orange with Vanilla Ice Cream
If you want a dessert that is simple, refreshing and light, try this. Reminds me of summer!

128261 Banana split with chocolate ice cream
A more indulgent treat to cap off your meal. Bananas with a scoop of chocolate ice cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup. My chocoholic sister loved it.

It took them a while to serve our food but trust me, it's worth the wait. 128522 Plates were also heated so food doesn't turn cold easily. The owner, Neil, was very hands-on. He goes around each table to welcome his guests and would go back after your meal to ask how your experience was.

I'll come back for sure! I would love to go back in the evening. I bet the view of the sunset here is amazing. 9925

We made this a must-try because of all the beautiful reviews my bf and I have read on |ooloo! 100841008410084

The place was easy to find thanks to the map feature of the app. Hihihi 128525 Thanks, |ooloo for that! 128514 It was such a scenic venue, surrounded by fields and flower gardens and all things dainty! Dining made me reminisce of Europe and their colorful houses! 128525

As other reviewers have mentioned, their entrees come with an appetizer, a choice of main course and dessert, and you must avail an entree for a minimum of Php 700. Frankly, it's very reasonably priced what with ambiance and the quality and taste of the food! 128525128525128525

I called in advanced to reserve us a table and a British man answered the phone. He was very polite and nice enough to accommodate us even as we only made our reservation 20 minutes prior to our arrival to the resto. 128517 It was a weekday so there weren't a lot of guests. But then again, it wasn't empty either. 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼

For the appetizer, we were asked to choose between Soup of the Day or Grilled Amalfi Prawns. My bf and I both had the prawns. I didn't regret having unable to try the soup because the prawns were divine! 128525128525128525 It was well balanced in flavor and bursting with freshness! It was the perfect way to start the meal!

For main course, I had the Grilled Aromatic Pork while my bf had the Italian Pork Chop. They both came in huge portions! What delighted me most was how it was served in properly heated plates to maintain the correct food temperature throughout the meal. The smell of the pork was just amazing! My bf's pork chop was delicious too but I'm glad I had the pork loin. 128514

For dessert, I had the Creme Brûlée (added a small amount for this) while my bf had the Panna Cotta. I liked his dessert except for the sour jelly. 128514 As for my dessert, the candied sugar on top was just too thick and too much. The creme itself was delicious! 128525

I can't wait to come back for another date! 100841008410084
