Whoever said it must know that you can double the fun if you share it with someone and triple if your dog tags along, too!

PetFriendlyPH recommends Chateau Hestia as an ideal date place after receiving several photos of pets from this garden restaurant near Tagaytay City. A guest (@sbperalta) once shared in Facebook how the staff at Chateau Hestia generously allowed their group to take their dog with them in the main restaurant even though they were ready to just dine outside.
Chateau Hestia also offers bed-and-breakfast accommodations. One reader confirmed that pets are allowed to stay for free in the guest rooms as long as they don't stay on the bed.
