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

Order: Adobo Rice, Three Way Adobo, Sinigang, Fondue. Cute place, request a table on the 2nd floor veranda for a great view. 3rd floor roofdeck if you don't mind the wind. We had a great time!!

It was our first time to eat here in Pamana, Tagaytay. It's just along the road with a big sign so you won't miss it. The place is very Filipino. Everything in it has a touch of Filipino. The ambiance of the place was really nice. The inside is like the interior of an old house but the outside is kinda modern. Everything looks cool inside. You can either dine inside the restaurant or outside with an overlooking view of the Taal lake. They also have parking and clean restrooms inside.

An order of a large bowl of soup ranges from 450-600pesos. They say it's good for 3-5 but it could fit probably 8-10people!!! They have big servings all for sharing. They said that their rice order was good for 2 people only but it could fit up to 4 people. We ordered KANSI, it's like Sinigang but a different version and it has tomatoes. We also tried the sizzling sisig with aligue, it was heaven. It costs 220+ pesos I think. If you want it spicy you could ask them to add chili.

Their house water has a pandan leaf inside the pitcher, the water tastes like Pandan but it's really refreshing. They also have juice pitchers which is good for 6-8 glasses. Everything in this place is good for sharing which is why even though they are pricey the food and quantity is perfect.

Another cool thing about the place is that they have this frame where their customers could take a picture and they also have one outside. The place is so cool and I recommend that you guys check it out.

I always though of this place as an expensive fine dining restaurant. It kinda looks intimidating from the outside. So we never tried to eat here until i went to tagaytay with my friends. Prices were reasonable! And food was great too. We were saving the bulalo for the really special christmas dinner so we forewent and settled for Adobo in 3 way, kare kareng bagnet and laing. Which were all delicious. My friends especially liked the adobo in flakes. There was pandan in our water. It smells like it. I am yet to agree with the nice ambiance since we were seated outside and oh boy how the wind kept swinging! Aside from the Pretty view from the rooftop, i guess the interiors were very antique yet also modern. However tables were a bit too close. I was practically sitting next to the other table and I can hear their conversation. Service was ok. Waiters seemed to be stressed out though.
