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.

order the "Fish of the day" , it was very yammy, and I had a nice coffee after that, enjoyed so much. Kiwi House Receptionist recommended this cafe, it was a good choice.

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

We decided to have breakfast here after a recommendation from a friend. We ordered the creamy mushrooms on toast and the breakfast scramble, both were delicious! The coffee was perfect, and sitting outside in the gardens was delightful! The staff are very nice and accommodating. Highly recommend having breakfast here. Lunch menu sounds just as good too!

We flew into Christchurch early on a cold winter morning, picked up the hire car and decided we were hungry. We had no idea of where to go, but after a little reconnaissance this name came up with very good reviews. We were not disappointed! It is a quirky little place, warm and cosy with smiling efficient staff. The food... More

We four friends met for breakfast - three were from out of town and one of the three from Australia. They asked me to recommend somewhere a little different, so I suggested Under the New Red Verandah. We were seated in the covered verandah under a gas heater, which was much appreciated by my thin blooded friends! ( It was... More

Visited at Easter, friendly attentive service. Quickly served coffees which were amazing as usual. Ordered the bruschetta $23, eggs perfectly poached & mushrooms delicious. Will definitely be back!
