Tagaytay: RSM

Over the holidays my friends and I managed to squeeze in a trip to Tagaytay for some fresh air and good food. Upon the recommendation of one of my friends we headed to RSM, a resto with good food and a great view of the Taal Volcano. 

This is the view on a cloudy day.

I think I've dined at RSM several times already. The food is quite okay (just the same as other restos in the area), but the service has gone quite bad. There was a mix-up in the table/kubo assignment and ordering was confusing. You can get food immediately from their "fast food" section, but by the time you pay for your food it's a bit cold already. And then there's a number of dishes that's not available in the fast food section, so you have to order and wait about 15 to 30 minutes for it. Ordering for drinks also take time.

We were quite hungry and since traffic was bad we just decided to eat there anyway. 

I had inihaw na baboy

Miguel had chicken.

Great to eat veggies too in Tagaytay!

And I wanted to try out the tahong too. 

And the shrimps looked yummy as well.

Too bad the service was a bit bad. I think though they should do something about their processes and probably stick to just either a by order or via fast food and not both.

Must haves: anything inihaw, leche flan

Can do without: the confusing ordering system

Price range: PhP300 per person (I think the prices are over-rated, but servings are good for two)

The Lakwatsera's Rating: will likely look for another resto in the area


  1. the place is beautiful!
    aileen, bigyan mo naman ako ng advice,
    I always feel intimidated everytime
    we eat in fancy resto, ewan ko ba,
    i feel shy to ask the waiter regarding
    my order, i always let my hubby ordered
    for me, but he says i need to learn to speak-up kasi minsan di talaga ako happy sa order ko.
    please? thank you in advance ha.

  2. @gratitude yes beautiful but they need to improve their service. I don't really like eating at fine dining restos too, but I just go ahead and say what I want to eat. Just say it. =)
