Sublime Dining at Venus Garden


Seeing as Venus Garden is primarily based in my stunning hometown of Baguio, Philippines, this post tells the story a lot more of a culinary adventure than a travel adventure. With a weakness for five star luxury and a different international trip looming about the corner, I decided it was the great excuse to seek out a different Baguio gastronomic practical experience at Venus Garden prior to I leave my hometown when once again. Getting the second by reservations only private dining I know in Baguio, I was excited to uncover out what it had to supply.


Venus Garden is challenging to uncover on the map and when they told me that it is positioned overlooking a golf course, I have a feeling that it is positioned either at Camp John Hay or at Suello Village. But I never feel it really is in Camp John Hay, it had to be Suello Village. When I was hunting for this gem, I necessary to confirm the place. I had to ask directions straight from Venus Garden’s Facebook web page. I knew it! It really is in Suello Village. I straight away hailed a taxi cab from the gates of my apartment to it really is place, just in time for lunch time.


Situated in one particular of the most sought following true state in Baguio city, the Venus Garden is perched overlooking one particular of the most scenic golf courses in Baguio City. At 1st glance, you might feel it is just a different luxury property but ensconced inside this beautiful holiday property is a cozy restaurant in the basement, completely planned in style.

Regardless of it really is incredible views, this private dining can be genuinely difficult to uncover which indicates it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Upon getting into the enclosed home, I was straight away rewarded with vibrant floras in the garden.

Walking into the white, light, and vibrant finish of Venus Garden there is one particular issue that would strike you. The minimal and airy interiors of the property, the complete style of the property was straight of an interior magazine. I straight away felt a sense of calm and tranquility and this ambiance oozes all through the complete home. The modern but luxurious style and decor tends to make for a refreshing modify from the a lot more dining establishments in Baguio City.

THE Meals

While there was a sublime tasting buffet menu on supply, my meals buddies and I have decided to go a la carte so we could choose precisely what we wanted. Picking what you want to consume can be overwhelming as there is a lot to select from. I did not consume any breakfast or any light lunch prior, so I am a lot more than prepared for a feast.

Soup, Salad, and Sides

I completely adore beginning any meal with a excellent soup and getting a weakness for mushrooms, there is no doubt but to grab a bowl of “Cream of Mushroom” which came with a lot of bewildering flavours of pleasure and happiness, just great for the cold Baguio climate. I was intrigued by the potato and vegetable contif which complimented the succulent broccoli completely. The Baked Penne Bolognese was in all probability the least flavoursome but a good addition to any palate.

Getting obsessed with vegetable salads the previous couple of months, I decided to add assorted salad greens on my plate and topped it with my decision of dressing. The creamy balsamic dressing was beautiful and just adequate to leave you wanting a lot more.

Hot off the Grill

My primal senses was straight away drawn to the grill which was situated on the terrace. The Australian Angus Rib Eye Au Jus, Grilled Herb Garlic Chicken Fillet, Blackened Salmon Fillet, and Grilled Pork Belly is served appropriate in front of our eyes, hot off the grill by Chef Larry Lugo. We can not assist it, but we went for all 4 grubs – it is extremely tender and it is a melt in the mouth.

While the flavor that the charcoal fire provides to the meals is fabulous in and of itself, the volume was completely amp up with specific sauces on the side for each and every.


I would by no means commonly order dessert at a restaurant. Firstly, simply because I am generally far also complete and secondly simply because the dessert menu in your common restaurant is by no means all inspiring. Nevertheless, primarily based on the incredible high quality of platters, I figured it would be rude not to round off the complete feast with a thing sweet and I was not disappointed.

The very best way to describe the strawberries drowned with milky whipped cream was completely indulgent and amazingly scrumptious, that you could inform had been completely fresh. If you have overdone the grilled dishes, this dessert coupled with fresh fruits are best alternative to cool down your palate. I completely adore them particularly, the creme brulee cheesecake and the death by chocolate cake which was a small mouthful of pure heaven.


Venus Garden is a reservation only, private dining. They supply specific buffet lunches on weekends and specific occasions and reservations can be produced three days in advance with 50% deposit. You might request a customized menu you like with Venus Garden’s Chef Larry and Chef Joi – from Filipino, to Japanese, to Italian, to Carribean, to Chinese cuisines – you name it.

For now they only accept a minimum of 20 guests bookings. The restaurant basement can accommodate a maximum of 30 guests and 20 in an outside below the pine tress. For a substantially bigger group you can use the dining facilities of the primary property for some guests. You could possibly want to comply with Venus Garden on Facebook for updates.


The lunch buffet was actually a heavenly practical experience as you are amongst with the clouds from start out to finish. The tranquil atmosphere, charming golf course view, inventive savoury and impeccable desserts had been spot on. It was the appropriate way to kick off the middle of my busy week in style.

If your’re hunting for an off-the-beaten-path dining and a menu that adjustments with the season, then Venus Garden is for you – enabling hungry travelers with a taste for a thing specific to sneak away and take pleasure in genuine cuisine that most persons by no means get to practical experience.
