You'll find true love at Pamana - Tagaytay! They boast a fine dine ambiance at a surely Filipino look and feel. Their many kumedor is a sure retrospect of the Spanish era in the Philippines.

Food is absolutely a delight. Seafood paella is iconic. It's taste is rich and flavorful. Color is all out stunning. Baked shrimp with extra cheese was to die for!!! Adobo medley doesn't stop from melting in your mouth, it will surely goes to everyone's heart.

At the end of some heavenly treat, their refreshing tanglad iced tea compliments the climax-sustained ending.

We went there on a weekday. It was lunch but we were the only guests there. It's nice to have the place all to ourselves. Usually, you'll need a reservation as to where you want to be seated, but today, we get to choose wherever we want to sit.

The staff were very werlcoming and accommodating when we entered the restaurant. Although, even though there were no other guests, we still find it hard to call a waiter since they keep on going somewhere else.

We ordered their famous 3-Way Adobo, the Squid Adobo with Calamares, rice, hot chocolate for me, and honey lemon tea for Luis. The food was amazing. I love their adobos. No wonder they're famous for them. Their hot chocolate is served in a pitcher and will be mixed using a special mixing equipment in your table by a waiter. The tea was nice too.p

Their servings are usually good for 2-3 people but the dishes were just enough for the two of us. We're just that matakaw. Haha. Their receipt was surprisingly simple tho. It's the kind of receipt you'd see in a small convenience store.

Overall, it was great. We'd definitely go back here the next time we visit tagaytay. 128522

P.S. They also have a small gift shop at the first floor btw.

Another food bucket list ✅

Looking for a place to dine in Tagaytay?

Went to Pamana restaurant in Tagaytay last April 22, good thing the hotel where we checked in is host few blocks away from Pamana. We decided to have our dinner here with my family.

Pamana is a Filipino fine dining restaurant that serves heirloom recipes handed down from generation to generation. Owned by Mrs. Happy Ylagan Ongpauco Tiu.

Got their best seller Crispy Pata, so crispy and very nice presentation. The salmon belly here was a winner too, then we had Laing and 3 way adobo. Iced tea was refreshing it's not the ordinary iced tea that I used to drink. Very generous serving . We can't finished it all coz were so full and happy tummy. Price is not cheap but totally worth every penny128076

What a lovely dinner, yummy meal while enjoying the cool air at night and admiring the amazing view of the city that evening .

Service is good also and the place is almost full that time we went there so better you have your reservation .

A Filipino restaurant with a twist. They also have branches in Boracay, Makati and at Abs-Cbn

Visited this place on a dinner friday night. We ordered the ff:

Okoy bites - this is a new favorite here. Perfectly fried tiny shrimp fritters and combines well when dipped into the vinegar sauce served with it. Best as an appetizer.

Lechon manok tinupig sa gata - this was just ok; you have an option to order a half or a whole

Bario fiesta kare kare - this was very good and has a lot of sahog not just the sauce; taste was very strong; combines well with plain rice

Adobong pusit at calamares - another new favorite here. It doesn't look appetizing because all I can see is blackness but once I ate it, it was heaven in my mouth. I like mostly the calamares part but the adobong pusit was also good. The adobong pusit and calamares were mixed together in a dish

Seafood medley sa pocherong saging - didn't like this so much, not so many saba (or maybe it got squashed); i think the tomato sauce didn't mix well with the seafood combination.

Service, serving time and size were good.

Late Post...
During our visit, the place was not crowded and you can choose freely where you want to sit as it was a weekday.

We got a number of dishes...

127860 Sinigang na Gulay - 128077🏻128077🏻! Nothing beats the taste of fresh tamarind when cooking Sinigang! The veggies was cooked perfectly. Although, I feel that for a 240php price, the veggies should have been more as the resto is in Tagaytay, where ingredients are way cheaper as compared here in Manila. This dish is a 11088️11088️11088️ 1/2 for me.

127860 Taal's Spicy Tawilis - 128077🏻128077🏻! One of our favorites. I liked how they cooked it. It's so crispy, that I am able to eat the tawilis from it's head 128031 town to the tail. 128513 This is a 11088️11088️11088️11088️ for me.

127860 Cebu Lechon Roll - 128076🏻... Veered away from ordering the usual favorite, the infamous Crispy Pata and decided to try this dish. We just got 1/2kilo. Upon serving the dish, we were surprised that for a 590php price we were presented with just 3 slices (as shown in the picture) 128529. Taste was just 128076🏻, didn't really enjoyed it that much and the crispiness of the skin is a bit chewy and the moistness of the meat is no where to be found. Just a 11088️11088️.

127860 Crispy Pusit in Squid Ink - 128077🏻...A classic Adobong Pusit with a twist. The usual Adobong Pusit is combined with a portion of Crispy Calamares. The squid is cooked perfectly. The meat was tender and not tough to eat. I also enjoyed the crispness of the Calamares giving another dimension and texture to the dish. This dish is a 11088️11088️11088️ for me.

Overall, dining experience was 128076🏻. Servers were just okay however, they were not that attentive considering the place was not jam packed. There were instances that we tried to call the attention of the servers but it took us a few times before we got noticed. For this specific visit, it''s a 11088️11088️11088️ for me.

Just a 128221, during weekends or holidays, the places is full at any time of the day...Parking is kinda difficult as well. Lastly, if you have a companion who cannot climb the stairs (PWD/seniors) they have a small place at the ground floor, the downside... there is no view.

Who would not like filipino food? Downside is it is really heavy on the tummy. We had their set which includes crunchy fried calamares in their ink, sinigang salmon belly, kare kare, crispy pata, tortang talong, pinakbet w prawns, among others. In my food coma mid meal, I forgot the rest. Dessert were palitaw and puto bumbong ( really light right?) Anyway, they were typical Pinoy homecooked dishes, and with the resto's decor, makes you feel like dining at Lola's house.

After a very long discussion with Teemee T where the best tagaytay restaurant to eat near Tagaytay Rotonda which we haven't tried yet and just basing it according to reviews, we have finally decided to visit Pamana over sunday lunch and we were not disappointed.

A very nice place for family bonding, which serves good filipino cuisine with a twist and its interiors designed with old pictures depicting different generations and classy wooden furnitures.

They do not allow reservations. It's a first come first serve basis. We were seated at the 3rd floor, which is the topmost floor. The area was cold and windy with a beautiful foggy view of the taal lake.

We orderes the ff:
*Crispy Squid in black ink - this is a starter dish; my favorite in all the dishes served. I liked how the mayo with aligue sauce compliments the squid. Black, simple yet delicious in every bite

*pinaputukang tilapia - wrapped in a banana leaf with lots of flavorful seasonings

*karekare - very generous serving of meat and veggies even the sauce

*sisig - not crispy and generous amount of serving. With aligue, egg and mayo. It was oily.

*baked tahong - around 10-12pcs of mussels with cheese, bacon bits and pesto paste

Service was ok although they forgot to include one of our orders.

We were craving for Filipino food so we went there for lunch. There was a long queue when we arrived so we still waited for our turn to be seated. Their registration process was not organized so we had to follow up many times to make sure that nobody will cut into the line. 128514 The restaurant was full of antique pieces and furnitures that will bring you back to the old times.

We ordered Bagoong Rice and Bagnet Kare-Kare (3-way). For our drinks, we ordered Fresh Buko Juice and Lemongrass with ginger tea to help me soothe my sore throat.

Bagnet Kare-Kare (3-way) for around 600 was just okay. They have huge serving but the taste was not that remarkable for me. Their bagnet was not crispy as well. It was called 3-way because it has 3 special combinations of Barrio Fiesta's Kare-Kare, Pamana's famous Bagnet and flakes.

Bagoong Rice for 175 was good. It has green mangoes, sweet and tender pork, and tomatoes. It was not salty; it was just right.

Lemongrass with ginger tea was really good. It was really soothing for my throat.

Overall, it was just OK. I could have given 4 stars but it fell short due to the type of service we got.

This place exposes different Filipino food from all over the country in just one table.

They have a variety of lechon dishes, seafood, sinigang etc. We tried their 3 way adobo which is basically the typical adobo cooked in 3 different ways - adobo flakes, adobo sa suka and the regular adobo. Also we tried their kansi which originate i think in Negros. Kansi is a cut between bulalo and sinigang. For dessert we had ginumis in panutcha ice cream and their manga ice cream.

The place was nice, it was nicely decorated themed after the name of the resto. There were vintage stuff all over the place and pictures of the owners from the first generation were hanging on their wall. It would be best if the stairs were a little bit wider though..

I like how Pamana has the whole feel & taste of "home cooked" dishes. I also like the interior design of the restaurant, kinda like stepping into a house that's been passed down from generation to generation (if that makes sense).. Their "backyard" offers a great view as well.

Our default resto when eating in Tagaytay with family. They serve Filipino food with a twist. Try their kare-kare, sisig and bagnet. Yummy! I just wish that they have a bigger restaurant space.

We liked everything that we ordered (or maybe we were just really hungry hehe).

1. Grilled Squid in Ink - very tender and tasty!
2. Bulalo - with a huge bone full of marrow. Yummy but deadly 128586.
3. Pinaputok na Bangus - also good though wasnt able to eat much of this.
4. Crispy Pata - of course same as Barrio Fiesta's. Very good!

We also liked their brewed lemongrass iced tea and pandan ginger iced tea.

The food was really good. We especially liked the Bangus Belly and Tofu Sisig and Bistek Salmon Belly. The serving is generous and the price is affordable. However, the service is kinda slow. I guess it's because our place is located in the rooftop and the crew needs to go up and down just to serve the food. But all in all the experience was great! Thumb's up!

We ordered Chicken Binakol, Bagnet, Baked Tahong Sampler and Ginger Iced tea. Everything was good. I don't eat Tinola but I really liked the taste of Binakol. Crunchy Bagnet. Walang lansang tahong. Iced tea, the bomb! The kick of the ginger got me. 128076🏾 all in all i enjoyed the food, the interior and the kuya who served us. We had a good time there. Price is reasonable too. Will definitely go back!!! 9786️
