Café Voi La – Beyond The Usual in Tagaytay


Deviating from the customary while going beyond the usual food expectations. That how I describe Café Voi La restaurant in Tagaytay. Let me count the ways.

 In terms of location, it is not located along the common highway of Alfonso where people customarily head off for lunch or dinner once they hit  Tagaytay. It is actually at the opposite side from Alfonso. Café Voi la is located at the  left side along the way to Tagaytay Highlands. It is located at the very entrance of Crosswinds Tagaytay.

In terms of product offerings, you will find lots of new and old  local restaurants serving hot bowl of “bulalo” (beef stew), tawilis (a type of small fish) and international cuisines from chain restaurants and fast food.

Cafe Voi La Tagaytay Menu

This outlet serves a wide variety of international cuisines from Italian, American, Asian to our very own beef tapa but without “bulalo”. They serve all day breakfast items, too, like corned beef hash, tapas, daing na “bangus”,  pancakes and omelet until 11AM daily. You can have pasta, salad and pizza too. It has Asian-inspired creations as well but I prefer the grilled US tenderloin beef for my lunch. You can have your coffee and lots of desserts to choose from. The food’s taste is excellent and it seems any dish on the menu will also deliver satisfactorily as well.

Beyond location and delicious food, what I really love in Café Voi la is overall ambiance. Its  atmosphere, coziness and quietness of  the place as it is surrounded by pine trees in cold and foggy parts away from the crowded portion of Tagaytay. Indeed, it complements beautifully well the Villar developed Crosswind Resort Suites, a Swiss inspired resort.

We were just so lucky we have our lunch almost 2pm and we got seated immediately although it is ok to wait for our food if it took a while because you will really feel relaxed.  Its staff are friendly and courteous.

I  enjoyed our food, have no complaint but be sure to have extra buck since it is a bit pricey. Aside from that, I have nothing but good things to say about this outlet.

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
