NOTE: THIS PLACE HAS ALREADY CLOSED
You know a great place when you see it. That’s how it was like for me when I first got to Laya.
(To think I just saw it in a consumer report on the trend of personalizing things for consumers a week before my first visit.)
Now it’s one of my personal favorites. I love the ambience. I love the fresh air. And I like what you come up to after the drive to Antipolo in search of it.
The owners, Chef Ricci and Irene, have added their personal touch in everything especially the flavors, design and service at Laya. The house, that’s been converted to a restaurant, plays venue for their collections from their travels.
The different courses play up different tastes and you will need to pace yourself because you can get pretty full from their servings. Here are some photos of the items we’ve tried during our two visits. Of these, I would have to say that my favorites include the dessert with Chocnut Dip, the Norwegian Salmon, and the deconstructed Ceasar Salad.
Laya is located at the end of Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights Subdivision, Antipolo City.
From EDSA, take Ortigas heading towards Cainta. Along the way, you’ll pass Robinson’s Cainta and Ever Gotesco, both on your right. At the very end of Ortigas, follow the road when it veers to the right, heading towards Taytay. Then take the first immediate U-turn slot, almost across Chowking. Drive past Chowking then take the 2nd right turn. This winding and ascending road will take you up to Antipolo. When you reach a rotonda, stay on the right fork then you’ll pass the Capitolyo and Ynares Center both on your left. About 100 meters after the Capitolyo and Ynares Center, turn right on Grand Heights Road, which is right after Salon Style/ Lechon Manok ni Sr. Pedro. (If you see a Rapide or Unciano Hospital both on your right, turn back because you went too far). After taking a right turn at Grand Heights Road, just follow the road and drive past a pink and yellow guard house. Then turn right on Sierra Madre. You will see Pinto Art Gallery on your right. Keep going straight until you see the last house on your left before the dead end.

Take Marcos Highway and pass Robinson’s MetroEast and Sta. Lucia Mall, both on your right. When you reach the first major intersection, you’ll see a Masinag Wet and Dry Market, McDonald’s and 7-Eleven all on the left corner. Turn right on that intersection to Sumulong Highway. Along Sumulong, you’ll pass Padi’s Point on your right and shortly after that, Assumption on your left. About 5 minutes after passing Assumption, you will come across an intersection where you turn right (heading towards Hinulugang Taktak). The take the first left and follow the road until you see a USA88 Gas Station on your left. Turn left at USA 88/ P. Oliveros Street (heading towards the Antipolo Cathedral). Keep going straight until you see a Petron station on your right, turn right after the station. Follow that road until you hit the first major street, that’s J. Sumulong Extension. Turn right on that road. Keep going straight and turn right at the end, which is Sen. L. Sumulong Memorial Circle. Immediately after making the right turn, look for Rapide and the Grand Homes sign on your left. Turn left on the street right after that, which is Grand Heights Road.
