Antonio's, Tagaytay -- Still the Best
We went back to Antonio's to check out their wedding package for my brother's wedding. As I posted a while back, I still think that nothing beats an Antonio's Dinner in Tagaytay. It is still the best if you want to hold a grand wedding for your closest friends. Antonio's beats any other places in Tagaytay in terms of great food and great ambiance. There is no set package in Antonio's for wedding and they leave it up to you to order from the menu and the beverages menu. You should budget a minimum of at least P2,000/ head and it doesn't make sense to go cheap on your guest if you decide to hold your wedding in Antonio's. There is a corkage fee of P500/ bottle so they highly discourage you to bring your own wine.
The Antonio's Garden.
This was the view taken from the well manicured garden of Antonio's. You can see the 3-level main house on the right and the huge door on the left is used for the grand entrance of the couple. You can use the garden for cocktails and this serves as the waiting area. Also, it is advisable to finish all the program in the garden and conduct the wedding reception in the main restaurant. It would definitely be a challenge to hold a program in the restaurant because of its 3-level structure so you will want to set up wide screens around the restaurant to stream the video of the program so as not to alienate your other guests.
Overall, Antonio's is the best ideal place for a wedding reception but be sure to willingly spend P2,000+/ head.
Check out the rest of the Antonio's ambiance....
I've always love this door ever since we discovered Antonio's when it opened in 2003.
As you enter the door, you will be greeted by this receiving area with an old leather sofa. (This is the first level)
Behind the receiving area is the bathroom above that usually everyone falls in love with. I love it then and even better now.
You can decide to eat in the "main" restaurant with blue chandeliers. For a group dinner, our favorite spot is the patio of this main level resto.
You can continue to descend down via the grand staircase to the third lower level.
To your right is this high ceiling reception area which may be good for 20-30 people. I could imagine doing the wedding program here but you need to stream the programs via a wide screen to other areas of the resto.
To your left, group of tables with their own unique table setting and ambiance.
This table has an interesting chef painting at the end of the wall. I've always wanted to ask Antonio's one of these days, the story about the painting.
As you go down further, this staircase now leads to the garden.
Here is a view of the garden from the staircase. This is the first time I've seen it . They have done a great job with creating and maintaining this garden.
So bro, what's your decision? Will you go for Antonio's?
