We went for breakfast here this morning. Welcomed like long lost friends with genuine warmth and hospitality. We're served fast, free water delivered promptly, great coffee. Great attention to detail, I'm diabetic and was just looking on some other tables for a sweetener when they noticed and came over with some for me. Thank you, that impressed me. The breakfast...

Another good breakfast from the people at UTRV! Food always comes out promptly and great quality. Only slight disappointment was that our coffees, which are normally excellent, were not quite up to the usual standard. As always, booking a table is recommended and if you need a highchair this is especially important!

The kids (supposedly) brought me here for Fathers Day. I think it was more to feed their own faces, but either way who's complaining? It's not a cheap feed, but the waiters are great, and so was the food. It's a bummer when you can't find anything to complain about.. Oh yes, there was one thing. I had to pay...

My brother, sister and I were in the area and looking for somewhere to have morning tea. We stumbled upon Under The Red Veranda. It was very busy inside so we sat outside under a shade sail. The service was exceptional and the Black Doris Plum cake was absolutely mouth watering. Would definitely recommend to others and we will be... More

Staff were friendly, food was fine. It is nice in the summer when they can open all of the windows and you can sit outside.

Under the Red Verandah is a cafe that would be hard to miss and you wouldn't want that. In the middle of a hard hit earthquake area this cafe is like a beacon of light. It screams stop and come inside and you won't be disappointed. Friendly staff, great coffee, quirky places to sit and good food. What more could... More
