Was billeted at Discovery Country Suites. For hotel guests, they serve wine and cheese at 5 pm. The resto is good for romantic couples can watch the sunset or sunrise over-looking Taal Volcano. Maybe odd but I particularly liked the parsley, black pepper and paprika cheese and grapes. They are other cheeses that they served but have tasted them in... More

We're on our way to Batangas when we decided to eat here at Restaurant Verbena of Discovery Country Suites. I've been to other properties of Discovery and Country Suites is one of my favorite. Their food is so good! I love their breakfast selections though they only have limited choices. Staffs were attentive and the place is so cozy! Super... More

We had dinner here for our small company gathering. The food was great --- The salad was fresh and was sprinkled with edible flowers. The soup was creamy without being heavy. The fish was tasty and looked deceivingly small. The beef was tender. And the dessert -- it was the perfect ending to a long line of delicious courses. The... More

I dont really have much to say than : Bravo. Much like their food... It doesnt need much introduction, no need for hype nor much blah blahs. Had these three dishes (the portion is a bit conservative though, but then again... That could just be my appetite), and i will forever remember their smell, texture and taste. Fresh ingredients for... More

We were looking for a good breakfast place in Tagaytay other than what we've been usually having (e.g. Bag of Beans). I, then, checked out TripAdvisor and saw Verbena at Discovery Country Suites. Looked promising and so we choose this. Upon arrival, we got awed with its initial "country-side ambiance" feel. As I was going through the menu, I didn't... More

Dear Ms. Happy_WifeyandMommy, It is unfortunate to hear that our food offers were not to your liking. Our take was crunchy French toast which explains the crushed corn flakes crust. As for our Country Benedict, it is a little different from the usual as we are using duck fat biscuits instead of the traditional muffins to give it our own... More

'Twas our first time last Maundy Thursday to visit this restaurant, for our late family dinner, after their major hotel renovation. And what we can say - Verbena has kept its old ambiance of class, good music, excellent food details & best playing presentations, to the final coffee servings. Being a Holy Week, and right after the grueling almost 2-hour... More

Amazing food with a view of Taal Lake and Volcano. We really enjoyed the burgers, especially the one w/ foie gras; their corn chowder, both of the risotto, good salads using local tomatoes and greens; and most especially their "crazy rice".

We stayed at Discovery Country Suites last March 2015 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our breakfast was at Restaurant Verbana. My wife ordered the Country platter with bacon, pancakes and eggs.

I went here with clients and leadership team for lunch, food selection is awesome. Wine is quite expensive than usual, but the food is just amazing. Excellent food, breathtaking view and friendly staff.
