This farm is beautiful kept up, yet it is quiet and calming. We stops and truly were refreshed after a morning of dealing with traffic and not sure were we were headed . I loved walking around the farm. Plus it was nice seeing the rice fields maturing and almost ready for harvest.

This is a peaceful place where one can enjoy the plants, the flowers and wildlife - so don't expect much more than this. My wife and I walked all around the farm, we climbed into the tree house, sat on the swinging seat, admired the dovecot and strolled by the lake.We didn't try any of the restaurant food. It's a...

Went there last Sunday (June 30) and ordered drinks and dessert and our bill was 242 pesos only. I gave 1000 to the waiter but I was in a hurry to go to the CR and my bf was the one who received the change. Too stupid of me for not asking for the change nor inform him (my bf)... More

we requested for their boat ride but nobody responded to our request. on our way out, we were charged an entrance fee of P25 per head by the security guard. No notice was posted in any conspicuous place within the vicinity of the farm. no receipt was issued for the entrance fee. Poor service! weak internal control!

A great place to unwind as the beautifully landscaped surroundings is conducive for relaxation. A native bahay kubo or Balinese type of hut serves as their restaurant. A man-made lake is just outside the restaurant and small boats good for 3-4 are available if you want to enjoy the beauty of the place. We tried their Buco, Calamansi and Cucumber... More

Rafael's Farm is a nice place to visit when in Tacloban, Leyte. We ate lunch at their restaurant and they served good food. The landscaping is beautiful.

This is really nothing great at all. Large grounds of what was probably around 1 acre in the main. A small outdoor restaurant and a moat sized man made lake. Did not spot any animals? Not really worth the effort to visit.

A relaxing place where you can eat at your own pace and at peace. Mood music (Buble) filters through the speakers. Gotta try their spare ribs... and waray laing! Saraaaap! If you don't have any reservation, you gotta wait to be seated... have a cup of cappuccino while you do that and taking in the landscape. Wander around the lagoon,... More
