If you’re sick of the Rainforest Café at your local mall, you’re in luck. A more natural and much more beautiful version has been set up for all to enjoy. It’s called Labassin Waterfall Restaurant. Located in Tiaong, Philippines, Labassin is run by the Villa Escudero Resort.
The waterfall itself is man-made, but it’s actually powerful enough to provide hydroelectric power to a nearby coconut plantation.
As for the dining experience, well, just getting there is an adventure. Diners are brought in carts pulled by water buffalo. As for the attire, casual obviously. The bamboo tables at the base of the falls are placed right in the water, and diners can actually soak in the falls while waiting for their food to be served. And of course, the food, you can expect fresh seafood served on a bed of bamboo leaves, all locally sourced.
To top it all off, this unique experience won’t break the bank. A full-day experience at the La Escudero Resort, which includes pickup from central hotels in Manila, a tour of a family-owned museum of relics, and, of course, a meal at the Labassin Waterfall Restaurant, only costs $100. So you won’t feel guilty as you soak up this unforgettable experience.
