Restaurants in Tagaytay are just overpriced so we decided to bring our own food. It was an excellent decision. We brought fried chicken, steamed fish, adobong pork, cooked rice, some rice cake, soft drinks, and water. We only had to pay P150 for the cottage. The view was spectacular minus the tall grass and garbage lying around. The picnic area is quite crowded also so better get used to many people talking and chatting around. There are delicacies sold by locals around. I didn’t ask for the price because I was not so fond of sweets. Then there are massage people offering their service for a minimum donation (usually P50). There are also souvenir shops at the exit of the picnic area so one can easily buy “pasalubong.” The prices of the items are quite reasonable.

Not a good idea to roast/grill food in the picnic area although there are provided places for roasting. Bring a garbage bag too. The garbage bin can be so full.
