Leslie's

Leslie'sA trip to Tagaytay is never complete without a visit to Leslie's restaurant. It is located at Aguinaldo Highway Crossing, Silang West Tagaytay and it is almost always packed. Hence, the service can get really slow at times.

Leslie's Bar & Grill has one of the best locations for a grand view of Taal Volcano and Taal Lake.
"Taal Volcano is an active volcano on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It is situated between the towns of Talisay and San Nicolas in Batangas. It consists of an island in Lake Taal, which is situated within a caldera formed by an earlier, very powerful eruption. It is located about 50 km from the capital, Manila. It also has the distinction of being home to the "Largest island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island". This is referring to Vulcan point, an island in crater lake. The volcano has erupted violently several times, causing loss of life in the populated areas surrounding the lake, the current death toll standing at around 5,000 - 6,000. Because of its proximity to populated areas and eruptive history, the volcano has been designated a Decade Volcano worthy of close study to prevent future natural disasters. It was thought to be named as "a volcano inside a volcano" because many believed that the lake that circles the volcano was once a crater or mouth of a volcano." -wiki

It can get cold and windy in Leslie's so I highly encourage you to bring a jacket if you're the type who gets cold easily.

A lot of people go to Leslie's for the picture opportunity and the food. Here's a picture of us waiting for food with the Taal volcano as a background while another group in the background was having their picture taken with the same volcano.
