An inconspicuous garden resto that boasts its Tuscany-like. The appetizer Amalfi prawns were good, hummus is ok. Melon and arugula salad was good too. Loved their Fish Souvlaki (Marlin). Their octopus dish and mushroom pasta was ok. Desserts was good especially the pavlova.

My boyfriend surprised me with a lunch date here for our anniversary and I couldn't have asked for a better place. I have a thing for these hidden garden cafes and this one just really captured the whole spectrum. First of all, I'm thankful for Waze because there were no signs from the highway pointing to Marcia Adams. It's at the far end of Tagaytay (from the center), at the borderline of Tagaytay and Alfonso.

The place is divided into different dining sections, each with a unique quaint design but gives off the same rustic ambiance. Of course, we chose the breeziest part with a view (we came on a Monday so there weren't much people and we had the luxury of choosing our table). They serve Mediterranean food which I was worried about at first. Their specialty is kebabs, but as I'm not a big fan of kebabs, I went for the Grilled Aromatic Pork. My boyfriend got Chicken Kebabs. The ending... we switched orders. I was expecting the Aromatic Pork was porkchop, but it was like a slab of liempo with lots of thick fat. Had a change of heart with kebabs though. I loved the Chicken Kebabs!! Main courses are worth Php 700 a plate but comes with appetizer and dessert. Not bad for the serving size I tell you. The Panna Cotta with Lemon Sauce was a winner!

I tried many restaurants in Tagaytay but this is one of the best.

Had a really great experience on my first ever visit to Marcia Adams' earlier this month that I just had to go again the week after despite the horrible traffic Southbound. This quaint restaurant is nestled way past where all the crowds of Tagaytay are concentrated but it's quite easy to locate as it's just a short drive from the main road. Unlike most restaurants which have the dining area all in one enclosed space, the dining areas in Marcia Adams' are spread out in different sections- to the left side is this dim, cavern-like dining space with stone walls and further down is a more intimate area with bright yellow walls and large arched windows. And although the latter is actually quite romantic, what I do prefer more is their dining area on the right side of the restaurant because it's bright and airy (and of course all the natural light just makes it all the more easier to take beautiful photos).

Each main course comes with your choice of an appetizer and dessert so the minimum 700.00 pricetag on their mains is actually made a bit more reasonable. I shared orders with my two other friends and we made it a point to order different dishes to get to see and try more of what they had. For our appetizers, we ordered Hummus with Whole Wheat Tortilla, Baba Ghanoush, and Tzatziki and Lettuce Chips. For our mains we ordered Italian Pork Chop (795.00), Ai Funghi pasta (765.00), and Classic Chicken Kebabs (700.00). For dessert we had Grilled Orange with Vanilla Icecream, Panna Cotta with Lemon Sauce, and Strawberry Yoghurt Icecream with Berry Compote. Safe to say that everything we ordered that afternoon was excellent BUT the winner for me hands down has got to be their Italian Pork Chop- thick slab of tender and perfectly seasoned meat (!!!) closely followed by their Chicken Kebab. Among the appetizers, the Hummus really stood out for me- I don't normally like hummus but this one had a subtle garlicky taste and the tortilla chips were warm and crispy which I loved. In terms of dessert, the Strawberry Yoghurt Icecream was my favorite- it was tangy but the sweetness of the compote balanced it out. The Ai Funghi was not as good as the first time I tried it, but it wasn't bad either. The Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan is also a good choice if you want to throw in some greens in your meal. In terms of serving size, all of the mains are good for one person although the Pork Chop should be good for two. I would recommend sharing though so you get a bit of everything!

Their service was quick and their reservation process was also very easy: you just give them a call and they'll list you down for your preferred time. For both Saturdays that I was there the place wasn't teeming with people- even at 12 or 12:30, but when you plan to drive farther down past all the restaurants it's definitely better to call ahead of time just in case!

Can't wait to be back 128171

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.
