    Your article is very timely since people are on the lookout for alfresco restaurants in Tagaytay. I want to celebrate my mom’s birthday in Tagaytay because the scenery is refreshing and we need to somewhat unwind this lockdown. However, our only concern is if they would allow above 65 senior citizens.
