Azalea Restaurant - Most Romantic Place in Dumaguete City

Azalea Restaurant may not be a popular bistro in Dumaguete City, but with the ambiance and panoramic view, you'll definitely have a gratifying meal. Though the foods are not that gastronomic, still, I found the place the most romantic restaurant in Dumaguete City.

Why? Lemme tell you. But please, bear with me, 'coz I am not going to be particular of the food they served. We only ordered two dishes, and I honestly didn't like them, because it was early afternoon, and we're not that hungry. I was just fascinated with the restaurant hanging off the side of a deep valley. I'll show you some photos of course.

It was a date with Max, my special someone. I knew about the place during my visit in Twin Lakes. CLICK HERE. Though I’ve already seen it, I didn't know it was in business, until a colleague told me to try Azalea Restaurant. 

Since then, I was itching to visit and check out the place, but no one would have wanted to go with me. Why? First, it really looked expensive. Second, it’s really far from the city. And finally, they’re only open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, thus, they didn’t serve dinner.

I convinced Max to go with me one Wednesday afternoon. I even asked him to visit Twin Lakes, but hmmm… he’s not that adventurous type of guy, so I didn’t press on it. 

Fortunately, we’re the only customers when we arrived. We ordered braised pork and chicken adobo.

When we’re about to finish, a group of old and matured people arrived. I heard them admiring the place, but when they had the menu, they found the price expensive. They ordered salads and cold drinks, which were really apt for that hot breezy afternoon. I didn’t know why on earth we ordered a meal! Perhaps, we missed the salads and snacks at the back of the menu. I swear I could have ordered those things if I’ve seen one.

Anyway, we had a wonderful time. We barely have moments together, because we have to keep up with our schedules. Though we’re not that busy, but we really have different schedules, and our free time are not always parallel with each other. And  I don’t think that’s going to be a problem with us. We enjoy how things work, and we still miss each other every now and then.  Charots!

That’s it! This post is for the sake of Azalea Restaurant. This bistro is still in business, and they’re at Cambaloctot, San Jose, Negros Oriental, Philippines. It’s 19 kilometers North of Dumaguete City, and this is the same route going to Twin Lakes. Please read my Twin Lake post to know more about the direction.
happy anniversary!

  16. The more I see posts of Dumaguete City, the more I want to go there. Very scenic indeed, love the view and the place looks really romantic and tranquil.

  17. I love the panoramic restaurant! We have one in my city too (unfortunately expensive) and besides to having the panoramic view, it slowly spins to give a wiew all over the city (that made my father in law feel sick, tho :D)
