I love the dressing of their salad. It’s fresh and you can even ask them to prepare another one just incase the first serving is not fit for your taste. Their steak is too die for. It’s moist and is cooked to perfection.

it had been a while since we last ate at Verbena and we decided to pay a visit again since it was included in the Miele Guide. Verbena is the restaurant of Discovery Suites in Tagaytay and it is statrting to show some wear and tear. We were seated at the terrace which was quite pleasant. While waiting for our order, bread was served and I immediately noticed that it was not fresh and pointed this out to the waiter. He was very apologetic and offered to replace it. After some time, he served us fresh, warm bread. While we appreciated this, we feel that a restaurant of this caliber should make sure everything it serves is top quality. That said, the rest of our orders were quite good. We had the bacalao and sea bass fritters, a penne al telefono and the roasted prawns and scallops all of which were superb! The waitstaff is very efficient and friendly and the prices are fairly reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber. Definitely worth the trip!

Irritating Sunday traffic in Tagaytay is easily forgotten upon settling by a window-side table in this boutique hotel's cafe -
after a long & winding drive on Ligaya Road from Laurel Batangas, we decided on this safe choice, & slumped by our table with a good brunch of Herb Risotto, the Sampler Plate, Mushroom Arugula Salad, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, downed with a variety of fresh fruit juices still tangy from fresh squeezing.
The drive back to Manila was henceforth relaxing & pleasant ...

I had dinner here last March with my family. Quite intrigued with it being included in the Miele Guide of top restaurants, as well as the Tatler listing, both known high entities in cuisine guidelines . First thing first , ambiance - quite nice, not many people dining here , and although walk-in are accepted , it would be better to make a reservation instead for the better seats. Small capacity for guests is also noted , it is also the main dining area of Discovery Country Suites. Second thing , the service, the staff are very polite, know the menu well , quite patient , not overly friendly and intrusive . Last thing , the food itself, they have good plating presentation , and tastes really good and exquisite . They already provide complimentary bread with 3 different spread as appetizers, which i liked. Then we had the salad , and the main courses : seafood risotto , the sampler menu consisting of different meat items , and their own verson of surf and turf ( angus steak and prawns ). The food items took about 15-20 mins to arrive, but it is alright , you should not be in a hurry when dining in this place . Highly suggested for special celebration and business meetings. I also had breakfast , and it was a nice experience as well. Antonio's and Verbena are the top 2 restaurants that should not be missed when visiting Tagaytay.

We ate supper here on a Tuesday and had the restaurant all to ourselves! The view of the lake and Taal volcano is beautiful. The best dish on the menu was the black truffle risotto. Yum! Our only disappointment is they didn't have the chianti wine we wanted. Come on! This is an Italian restaurant after all.
