Verbena Restaurant, Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay


Delightful dining at its best, Restaurant Verbena offers contemporary fusion cuisine with the comforting ingredients of farm-fresh country food. It made the hour and a half trip to Tagaytay absolutely worthwhile!


To start off this gastronomic journey, here's some complimentary freshly baked bread with an assortment of dips and spreads: tomato, herbed butter and humus.



Organic Mozarella Cheese Pot Php395. Served "fondue style" with spiced tomato sugo, fresh herbs and warm focaccia. 

I have this love affair with tomatoes! I love anything and everything tomato-ish be it sun-dried or just plain fresh ones with olive oil. I can still vividly recall its freshness and it was perfectly spiked with fresh herbs. See the mozarella cheese oozing right from the pot. H-e-a-v-e-n-l-y! 



Pan-Roasted Seafood Php895. Composed of Chilean Sea Bass, Snapper, Prawns served with gingered pumpkin puree, brown butter sauce and pilaf rice.









Verbena's Sampler Plate Php895. BBQ Lamb Baby Back Ribs. Grilled Norwegian Salmon with Arugula-Mushrooms Salad and U.S. Beef Short Ribs "Coulash"



Verbena radiates such cozy and warm log cabin interiors . One may also opt to dine alfresco to gaze at the gorgeous Taal Lake scenery. It ranked 2nd among Top 5 Restaurants in the Philippines by the Miele Guide 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 editions. It has also earned the distinction as one of the recommended restaurants in the Philippines by Asia Tatler Dining. 



In celebration of its 8th anniversary, Restaurant Verbena is offering 50% discount on all food items ( excludes beverages) for breakfast, lunch, dinner and wine & cheese buffet every wednesday. 





300 Calamba Road, 
San Jose, Tagaytay City 4120
