Taal Vista hotel, one of the most prolific and one of the most well-known hotels in Tagaytay.  Providing the Filipino people with only the best Tagaytay experience since the 1960's, now is still the most sought after hotel this side of town.

Crafted by Taal Vista Hotel Executive Chef Babes Austria, Heritage Cuisines brings to us old favorites with a twist.  Using only fresh and seasonal vegetables, grown in the fertile lands of Tagaytay, venturing into local markets, making each dish a masterful art of delicious goodness.

The Heritage Cuisines starts with hefty serving of rice choices:
