Located in the midst of the palatial Villa Escudero resort plantation in the Philippines, the Waterfalls Restaurant calls for a no-shoes policy since it’s located right at the foot of a small river and waterfall.
The bamboo tables and cook stations are up close and personal to the waterfall, allowing guests to lean under the rushing waters after finishing their barefoot meal. Dishes are generally local fare such as rice and, of course, fish. The small falls, known as Labasin Falls, is actually not a natural one, but the runoff from the Labasin Dam, the Philippines’ first hydroelectric plant. Despite being an artificial falls that runs beneath the tables at the Waterfalls Restaurant, the uniqueness of the experience is very real.
