Marcia Adams: Tuscan Countryside Dining in Tagaytay

I had to break the monotony and routine of my life lately. If there's one thing I've learned throughout my blogging "career", the power of taking breaks show not be underestimated. The urge to constantly try something different is unyielding. We need it to save our sanity in times when we feel like we are about to lose ourselves. (I've been busy studying for something really important. I shouldn't even be blogging but here I am.)

Marcia Adams Restaurant in Tagaytay made that happen.

Marcia Adams is relatively a new restaurant in Tagaytay. It started to receive "buzz" last year through the best marketing strategy - "Word of Mouth". It has everything a restaurant needs to be a culinary destination - exquisite food, beautiful views and ambience, and most importantly, accommodating hosts. Marcia and her husband Neil know how to make their guests feel more welcome after a busy day.

This small restaurant captures the essence and feel of life in the Italian countryside.
The interior is distinctly Tuscan-inspired. The restaurant can only accommodate a few guests and that makes it an ideal place for a date.

I'm hoping I can build a retirement home like this for myself. Maybe I'll try gardening and just let the world pass by.

Now, let's talk about to the best part of this trip : The Food. I'm honestly not a food critic. I've never been one and I'm not sure if i'll ever be one. It's either I like the food or I don't. In this case, I loved the food! Marcia Adams serves a 3-course meal (includes appetizer and dessert) and the price depends on the main course (at least P700).

We started our culinary journey with some bread with balsamic vinegar + olive oil dressing.

Our Appetizer was the soup of the day. I forgot to ask what it actually was but I thought it was the perfect mix of herbs and spices.

For the Main Course, My sister and I both unknowingly got kebabs.

Hers was the Tanigue Kebab marinated in Olive Oil and herbs with rice or couscous (P700).

I got the juicy Beef Ternderloin and Bacon Kebab - Provencal Style beef tenderloin marinated in garlic and anchovies. (P845)

The Dessert. It was my first time to try Grilled Orange with Vanilla Ice cream. My choice had pleasant combination since the orange complemented the ice cream's sweetness.

Lime Panna Cotta. It doesn't only look good, it tastes heavenly too.

Some of the drinks you might want to try.

If you are looking for another getaway for the weekend, Marcia Adams might just be right for you. Nothing beats eating in a restaurant where you feel like you are home where you can dine and dream under the "Tuscan" sun.

Marcia Adams is located near the border of Tagaytay and Alfonso (Close to Residence Inn Zoo). If you see the Tagaytay arch with the Pineapples, you can turn right when you see the sign leading to Villa Simmet. The restaurant is approximately 150 m from the highway.

Contact Number: 0917-8011456 (Make sure you text them before you go, especially if you are going on a weekday). Be polite and courteous enough to notify the owners if you really cannot go.
