Antonios definitely deserves this and in my personal list, it is definitely at the very top. I've eaten in Antonios many times but only have one entry about it, which you can read here. Its always an enjoyable meal, ambiance is perfect, food is great and the Tagaytay weather always cool and very condusive for having dinner al fresco. The Chef is also very friendly and always tries to come out to check on the tables and ask the diners if they are enjoying their meal.

Bravo Antonios and hope to eat there again soon....as in very soon...I bettter make a reservation already.

I agree with you. If only Antonio were nearer, I'd probably go there much more often...

Same here! Thing is, I'll probably blow all my money on Antonio's and Amoroma if they were closer, so maybe its better that they're in Tagaytay.:-) Been planning to go to Antonio's with a bunch of people so we can order the "lechon", but it never pushes through. Maybe we should just organize a bloggers' dinner. Hehe.

You're right...me too...I've tried the lechon (Cochinillo) long time ago...it's very tasty baby lechon stuffed with a huge "pillow" of different kinds of herbs and spices....served with sauerkraut and mustard...to die for...

Yes we can do a bloggers dinner hehehe any excuse to go there is fine with me..
