Josephine's serve good Cavite Filipino cuisine. They have grown over the years and is in beautiful spot in Tagaytay with a great view. It is usually full during weekends, I still prefer a la carte over their buffets.

Serving is good. For the bulalo, it is a bit salty, meat not so tender. Tawilis and squid bot not available. Fail! Unattentive waiters/staff.
