Tagaytay Weekend with Mike at Marcia Adams

Marcia Adams Tuscany

I've always wanted to try something new so I searched for a restaurant in Tagaytay that we haven't tried before. Through tripadvisor, I stumbled upon a restaurant with high ratings and when I saw the photos from customers I fell in love instantly so I made a reservation thru text message.

Marcia Adams Tuscany lies in a quiet and hidden boundary of Tagaytay & Alfonso. Hidden but easy to navigate. We came from a chaotic Sky Ranch so all we really wanted was to have a peaceful dinner and to fill our tummies with good food.

The moment I stepped in the restaurant I felt the connection, it was one of those places I wanted my home to be. This place instantly set a calming mood to my senses.

We arrived in an off peak time so the customers were really few. I saw Marcia talking to one of his customers/friends, I recognize her to the various blogs I read before. Marcia is a Filipina married to his Italian husband who lived in Tuscany, which I guess was influenced by the Italian architecture and cuisine that led her on to this Tuscany restaurant.

I had a fun time taking so many pictures, I love this place, I love the Tuscan athmosphere, every angle is picture friendly! The restaurant has four parts- main dining area, garden area, lanai area and sunset lounge.

Main Dining Area is a cozy room because of the rustic brick walls. Didn't choose this area because it was dark the time we checked but we regret later on, I recommend to eat here during dinner because it gets really cold outside.

Garden Area is just outside the Main Dining Area. You can dine here during day time, perfect for those who love nature.

Sunset Lounge is the most coveted area, customers love to stay here because it gets really romantic especially during sunset (thus the name). And because a table was occupied by a group when we checked so we just had our pictures taken here but settled at the Lanai Area.

Lanai Area was the prettiest area for me during daytime. We get the best of both worlds where we were seated in a semi interior/exterior place with a picturesque view outside. But take note that it get really cold during night time.

The Food
The main course price is a three-course meal which includes an appetizer and dessert. For me, I ordered a Grilled Aromatic Pork while Mike ordered a Chicken Kebab.

For starters, they served us a freshly homemade bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. We finished everything on the plate :)

After we finished our bread, they served us Lettuce Chips with Hummus, another complimentary dish. And of course we finished this too.
