Since Tagaytay is our favorite go-to destination, we decided to spent our anniversary celebration here. We stayed and explore Tagaytay for 3 days and of course, our main target were restaurants. Hihi.
For our 1st night in Tagaytay, we had our dinner in a Spanish restaurant inside La Bella Residences.
ABOUT EL COCINERO
As I’ve said, this is a Spanish restaurant that is owned by Chef Arnaldo Limeta, born in Nasugbu, Batangas but trained his skills in Ibiza, Spain for 10 years. Wow! Imagine that?! So expect that the food that they will serve here are definitely awesome and good.
What I loved about their restaurant aside from its delicious food? IT’S ALSO INSTAGRAMMABLE!
This is what will welcome you upon entering the restaurant. Beautiful painting at the wall at the 1st floor…
Wait, until you get into their 2nd floor!
Yep! Their wall is Picasso-inspired murals and paintings. I really enjoyed staying here rather than in 1st floor.
But if you want to enjoy the cool breeze in Tagaytay, try their al-fresco dining area instead.
Now, let’s go to their food. Since we were still full fom our late lunch in Aozora Restaurant, we decided to order a pizza and an appetizer only.
El Cocinero Pizza (410 php)
We loved the pizza here. It’s also one of the best seller dish in El Cocinero. The crust is thin and crispy, just the way we liked it.
Croquetas de Pollo (115 php)
Thought the serving were huge but it isn’t. Hihi but overall, this one was good enough. Crispy on the outside and soft inside.
Also, we had Malunggay Juice (85 php) and Cucumber Juice (85 php) but we forgot to take some pictures because we want to eat already hehe. But the juice were refreshing!

Just a reminder, this restaurant is located inside La Bella Residences. So I suggest, if you’ll stay at La Bella for a night, please visit El Cocinero and try their authentic dishes as they are really good. Though the price is quite expensive, it will do justice because of the service and the quality of the food.
