Marcia Adams' Restaurant in Tagaytay, Philippines
"Life offers you a thousand choices...all you have to do is to take one."
- Frances Mayes, Under the Tuscan Sun
Don't you just love the quote above? This is perhaps one reason why I love the movie Under the Tuscan Sun aside from the fact that every scene is making me wish I can just hop on a plane and jet off to this sunny part of Italy. How I wish I can just spend at least a week of peace and quiet, far away from the rest of the world (or at least any cellphone signal) where I can just eat, sleep and write without a single interruption. Guess, it's time to start planning for my next trip! :)
Reading about the restaurant, it's said that the design of the house is similar to one of those Tuscan villas. Cobble-stoned walls, lush trees and greeneries and vintage wooden decors here and there. The only thing that we were not informed about was their Php. 700 consumable rate per head. Not a lot are hearty eaters in the family so we somehow panicked about this rule a bit. Thankfully, they were quite lenient seeing we got a number of senior citizens and kids with us so they allowed them to share. *phew* Wish they informed us beforehand though.
The ambiance was really beautiful and since it's surrounded with trees, we enjoyed the cool breeze all throughout the meal. The only challenge was the steep incline at the entrance which is not very accessible for the elderly. Marcia Adams' is indeed a great place to visit but do take note of all these limitations especially when visiting with young children and elder family members.
