Tootsie’s Tagaytay – Review by Love. Eat. Wander.

Spread the love

Tagaytay, during weekends, is synonymous to ‘Traffic’ — we try to avoid it at all cost. One weekend, however, we found ourselves stuck amidst the bumper-to-bumper traffic in Aguinaldo Highway, tired and hungry. That day, Xaman Ek, the Mayan god of travelers, was against us. We have been staying at home for two weeks straight and we thought we deserve a breather thus we drove our way to Tagaytay. We expected to chill out but we experienced otherwise. It was as if most of the people in the Philippines have the same thinking of spending a weekend somewhere and we all ended up South. 

We tried calling the gods and goddesses of drinks and foods and they took us to the doorstep of Tootsies. We’ve been to several establishments in the area that day, they were all full. Imagine our relief when we found empty tables when we chanced upon Tootsies.


Tootsies offers and serves variety of yummy Filipino heirloom recipes. From the myriad of food choices, we got Roast Chicken Kawi (PhP305), Pesto Pasta (PhP188), Turon Halo-Halo (PhP125), and Halo-Halo Regular (PhP135).

We loved the Roast Chicken Kawi and Pesto Pasta. They were very rich in flavor that we deliciously savored them to last bites. We will surely go back and order them again! The Turon Halo-Halo was fine, KC Turon of Kanin Club was still far better. The Halo-Halo Regular was the downer. It lacked sugar and milk. We think it’s pretty expensive for its quality.

Value for Money

Serving is quite small and we think some of the food in Tootsie’s menu are a bit pricey. We are sure you can find some of their dishes (of same quality or even better) in other restos for more affordable prices. 


J. Abad Santos, cor. Aguinaldo Highway, 4120 Tagaytay City

Location was accessible. It’s situated on the main road along the ridge. The place had a good ambiance. It featured country-styled decorations that brought in very homey vibe. Their large French windows provided a great view of the National Highway. There’s also an option to dine al-fresco at their tree-covered outdoor lawn where one can enjoy the cool Tagaytay breeze.

Another great feature of this restaurant is their well-kept washroom that smelled so good. It came complete with alcohol and face powder!
