We dined here for lunch and it was lovely sitting out on the verandah surrounded by beautiful scenery. The service was good and the staff friendly and helpful. We had four tapas dishes which was plenty for lunch as the servings are generous. The food was delicious, well presented and each dish left us looking forward to the next. Of... More

We had previously enjoyed The Verandah about four years ago, almost to the day. In the meantime I had read (and be concerned by) a couple of disgruntled reviews. On a warm Thursday evening which also included a storm we decided at late notice to revisit. And that's not always a wise choice as far as restaurants are concerned? We... More

Always a favourite in the Hunter Valley now there is an exciting new menu. If you have not tried the new menu I highly recommend that you visit Verandah for a truly excellent dining experience. The new menu successfully combines light fresh tasty dishes and those that are heavier with more depth. The service is as always excellent. keep up... More

This is the 2nd time in 6 months I have eaten at this restaurant, the first was a booked lunch, the most recent was a walk in, both times the food has been delicious! Really lovely food but the service is terrible! Notably rude staff, no customer service, and our table was not the only one that noticed, it makes... More

Had lunch at the Verandah today, great outlook over the vineyard, dined with wife and kids, staff were very pleasent. kids shared the burger with the pulled beef and enjoyed ,we had the tower wow it was massive. again if you get a table on the verandah you will get a great view.

Delicious tapas menu of modern Australian food. Not cheap but certainly affordable for a fine dining experience. We dined for Sunday lunch, enjoying the zucchini flowers, arancini balls, calamari, soft-shell crab and Harissa lamb. Each dish was high quality, well portioned and delicious. The five tapas meals were more than enough for the two of us - we left feeling... More
