We had a mezze plate - best mezze plate ever! The service was great even at 3.3opm on a Monday! We got extra bread and some hints on where to buy the amazing Labna.

We came here last night for our first wedding anniversary dinner and we're not disappointed. It was a Friday night but the restaurant itself was quite empty, with only four other parties. Food - great tapas. We had the blue swimmer crab ravioli (two big raviolis that were packed with flavour), cumin and cayenne baby calamari (a mixture of calamari... More

We had lunch at this café on a week end and it was really busy. You can sit out on a deck but it was a bit cool so we moved inside. There is a varied menu and the price is reasonable. The meal sizes were good and the food tasted really nice. I would eat here again if I'm... More

An institution in the Hunter Valley. A must visit. Great Tapas food and excellent service in a beautiful location. What more could you ask for. Get along to a Locals night even if you are a visitor to the area. What a great evening.

The Verandah Restaurant, I would have to say is the best restaurant in the Hunter Valley. The range and flavours of food is outstanding. The service was wonderful. Every time I visit the Hunter Valley I always go to the Verandah. :)

My colleagues and I recently visited the beautiful Verandah for their monthly locals night and had such a wonderful evening. We were treated to beautiful Tintilla Wines upon arrival with delicious canapés on the warm verandah. Canapes was soon followed by an incredible five course dinner which was divine. My favourite part of the meal was the desert shot created... More

Attended the locals night for the second time and once again had a fantastic meal which started with canapés on the verandah and lovely sparkling followed by an amazing 5 course meal. The smoked duck was truly amazing and I squeezed in the pudding with salted caramel which was Devine, and the atmosphere In the restaurant was warm and very... More

We regularly go to this amazing restaurant, particularly for the Locals Night. Matt, Sharon, Bree, Brodie, trainees and all kitchen staff are absolutely wonderful. The food is always plentiful and of the highest quality, as for value for money, it is second to none! I greatly admire the rapport that is evident between all staff members, both senior and junior.... More

Lunch here was divine - tapas menu was extensive and mouth-wateringly tempting. Full makrs for presentation and flavour. Wine list also showcased local wineries, which was great because you can just pop down the road and take a bottle home at cellar door prices! Service was friendly, helpful and attentive. Each dish came out a decent pace and we never... More

Before posting this review I read some of the other ones, and in particular the "terrible" reviews, because I am completely surprised anyone could say this restaurant deserves anything less than 5 stars. The food is absolutely stunning, and whilst the decor is a tad tired, you really are there for the food and I would say this is more... More
