“Not so good experience”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

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!

“Beautifully Landscaped, Food is just ok”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

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 drinks - truly refreshing and a must try!

All other orders were ok: Cassava (sweet potato) with Cocomilk, Caramelized Banana in Cinnamon, and Sweet Banana (The cinnamon powder was overwhelming that we were joking that it should have been called Sweet Cinnamon instead). Chicken Mole.

Price is affordable.

Reviewed 18 February 2013

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.

“Not impressive, very small”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

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.

“All about the peaceful ambience”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

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, or swing yourself in tranquility. The pergola roof may be aged and worn and needs a little love but the view is great. They have healthy food selection also and shakes.
