The Ladera Golfer’s Lounge has a more relaxed atmosphere that is better suited for golfers winding down after a round of play. Even here, the Spanish-Mediterranean character of the clubhouse is apparent with its high wooden ceilings and wrought iron chandeliers. ‘Ladera’ or ‘hillside’ in Spanish is located atop a small hill from which its name was derived.
The door panels surrounding Ladera may be opened during good weather to allow the cool Tagaytay breeze to waft through the dining area. Patrons can take a stroll outside the restaurant to the adjoining veranda for dessert and coffee al fresco. The restaurant seats 120 persons inside its main dining area, and up to 150 persons should they also include seating in the veranda area.
The menu offerings at Ladera are more international in scope to better suit the varied tastes and preferences of golfers. At Ladera, one may partake of Tagaytay’s signature dish: ‘Bulalo’, which is a pot of braised bone-in beef shanks served with vegetables, or even some fusion dish such as ‘Peking Duck Mami’, ‘Chorizo Carbonara’ or ‘Philly Steak Pizza’.
Whether it is Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, Italian or a fusion between east and west, modern or traditional, dining at Ladera will surely be a delight to the senses.
