We try to visit the Verandah Restaurant at least once a month with our friends from the Kelman Vineyard. The food and wine are always good with plenty of hors d'oevre followed by a sit down meal. A recent locals night saw chef Matt Dillow prepare a delicious Paella with the help of local volunteers. It was an unforgettable evening.... More

The Verandah restaurant was lovely. It has a great selection of tapas. The sizes were good and the food was amazing. We recommend the Moroccan Lamb Sliders!

We have eaten dinner here twice recently, once with the family and once as a couple. The restaurant is on the Calais Estate winery and has a tapas style menu. The menu selection is extensive and could be a little daunting if you are not used to the tapas style of dining but staff are very friendly and more than... More

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
