A Restaurant Beside a Waterfall

 

Located at the Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort in the Philippines is the Labassin Waterfall Restaurant. The restaurant is only open for lunch and guests dine from a buffet-style menu and eat at bamboo dining tables.

As you can see from the pictures it’s not a natural waterfall but a spillway from the Labasin Dam. Back in the early 1900s, Don Arsenio Escudero built the country’s first hydroelectric plant to supply his dessicated coconut factory and Villa, which he and his wife Dona Rosario Adap built in 1929.

The dam’s resevoir has been turned into a lake where visitors can go rafting in traditional bamboo rafts and explore the Filipino culture at shows, facilities and additional restaurants on the sprawling property. Visit Villa Escudero’s official site for more information.
