A Not-so-secret Garden

Marcia Adams' little Tuscany hideaway in Tagaytay has always been on our radar but we've never had the chance to visit her garden restaurant until recently.

On our way there, we decided to take a short cut to avoid the traffic (which turned out to be a long cut) and unintentionally passed by the charming San Antonio de Padua church in Silang, Cavite.

For couples who want an intimate wedding near Tagaytay, this church is a good option. The parking area can accommodate 30 vehicles, multiply by 5 people per car or 10 people per van, a guest list of 150 to 300 would still fit. :-)

After visiting the church, off we went to knock on Marcia's door. :-)

A not-so-little garden welcomed us.

The garden wasn't as immense as Sonya's, but still charming, nonetheless.

Rustic tables, chairs, a little Italian country villa.

Our family ordered different things from the menu so we can sample most of the specialties.

Most of the guests felt that their orders were taking very long and it did seem like the staff was undermanned during our visit. But since we weren't in a hurry or insanely hungry, we were more patient.

I liked the lavender creme brulee.

The place was filled with vases overflowing with flowers. :-)

The place was relaxing, and so many areas were so picture-perfect.
