Restaurant Verbena

Notice to the public: Discovery Country Suites will remain closed indefinitely as the hotels’ emergency plan has been implemented due to the increase of eruptive activity from the Taal Volcano.

Home-cooked with love

Tagaytay is a celebrated foodie destination in the breezy countryside south of Manila. Restaurant Verbena, the multi-awarded gourmet gem of Discovery Country Suites, raises the bar to greater culinary heights with its contemporary country cuisine, paired with farm-fresh ingredients and herbs from the manor home’s garden. Food lovers craving for a heartwarming meal must try Executive Chef Celmar Ambida’s signature Brick Oven Chicken and his winning Chocolate Marquise, best served with a comforting cup of brewed coffee or tea. Enjoy the view of Taal Volcano as you savor the flavors of home in a cozy lakeside retreat.

The Verbena Country Breakfast is a highlight of every stay at Discovery Country Suites, as are the exquisite selections of wine and cheese served at sundown.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • FABULOUS LOCATION AND SUPERB STAFF. The suites themselves are excellent with modern self catering facilities, fabulous bathrooms, comfy beds and exceptionally clean. The location is great for the CBD and restaurants and malls are all close by.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
