Fantastic service from the staff, food was wonderful and the pricing was very reasonable. My partner and I have now tried a significant number of restaurants in the Hunter Valley and this was definately an experience would would gladly have again and thats not something one can say about all of the places we have visited.

Wasn't quite the experience we were expecting. Food was expensive and the quality was ok but not amazing. The service was robotic no personality. Wouldn't dine here again.

Myself and my dear mother treated ourselves to a lovely lunch at The Verandah Restaurant this past week and despite it being rather warm we still had one of our best dining experiences. The staff were well informed and I found it very pleasing to see that they had a separate menu to cater for our needs (dairy) . And... More

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely dinner here - service was pleasant (though perhaps a little awkward) and the view was gorgeous. Definitely book a table on the verandah. We got 5 dishes between us and it was probably a little too much so stick with 4! The kangaroo fillet was beautifully cooked and the baby calamari with lime... More

Absolutely beautiful location, friendly staff and the food speaks for itself. We were 2 families consisting of 4 adults and 5 children and were accommodated wonderfully. Simple, beautiful and incredibly tasty! We will be back!!

Lovely views, great food but beware the table service. We thoroughly enjoyed the tapas meals. Hoorah to the Chef! Unfortunately we had to be seated indoors where the ambience is somewhat lacking and yearned for a verandah table with the stunning views. We feel that the wait staff tried to provide good service but lacked appropriate training in engaging with... More

Our table of 8 enjoyed a lovely long lunch today at Verandah. We did order too much! 7 dishes was one or two too many. But... they were all so enjoyable! I think my favourite was the kangaroo - possibly the best cooked kangaroo I have had and so good with the figs. Another outstanding dish was the duck liver... More

After me wanting to visit Verandah Restaurant and my husband saying he does not like tapas, he finally agreed. Well it turned out to be his favourite on the trip. It is very different to the normal tapas, it is modern Australian. The dishes are served in portions of 2 or 4 for the appropriate number of people and priced... More
