Are you getting tired of the Tagaytay crowd, the Tagaytay traffic? If it’s delicious food with a view of Taal, sans the crowd, is what you’re looking for, you can go to Prism Restaurant Cafe in Lipa, Batangas.
Before we get into the beautiful interiors and the mouthwatering food of this restaurant cafe, here’s some interesting trivia: Prism Restaurant Cafe is the younger sister company of Prism Cafe, the cloud cafe behind the gorgeous Harry Potter-inspired drinks.
From managing a cafe, the owners decided to open this gorgeous restaurant in the south.
At first glance, Prism Restaurant Cafe does give off a strong summerhouse vibe, but once you enter the establishment, you’ll notice a sophistication to its interiors. The high ceiling, the chandelier, marble floors, and the creams and whites contrast the deeper colors of emerald, wood, and black.
They have an al fresco dining area if you want some fresh air. It also offers a better view of Taal, especially during sunset, which makes for a picture-perfect happy hour with your friends. Don’t worry; they offer red, white, rose, and sparkling wine to maintain that level of sophistication that the ambiance calls for.
