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

'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 ordered steak and eggs. Although it was plated, you have a buffet of bread, fruits and cereals. Yum. The staff was also courteous and friendly. The ambiance was... More

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.

couldn't ask for a better breakfast and service. Breakfast was included with a buffet of fresh tropical fruits,croissants, and fresh pineapple and melon juice. Had a great omelette with a roasted tomato, nicely presented . Coffee kept getting refilled by a very friendly waiter "Mark" who deserves high marks for his attentive service. Asked about the chef and I was... More

The place was dead quiet on a weeknight but we enjoyed it. Our server Mark was great and very attentive to us. He gave us complimentary appetizers as well. I had the mussels and lobster bisque which were great, and my husband has the tagliatelle with pigs head -- also delicious except for the smell that pork sometimes gives off.... More

Our group of 8 was in a celebratory mood and decided to dine here. Everything we ordered was top-notched: arugula salad, chilean seabass, ribeye steak, lucban chorizo risotto, even the plain rice tasted far from being plain. Ambiance was charming. Wheelchair accessible including restroom. No baby changing table. Resto has ample parking and is situated right beside Starbucks. Service by... More
