scrumptiously delicious tapas style food

We had one of the best dining experiences ever when dish after dish of delicious, faultless food was served by a delightful waiting staff. Heaps of options, even for people like us, who don't eat meat. Can't wait to be back!

We dined at the Verandah on Mothers day which was a big mistake as it was overcrowded and neither the kitchen or service staff could cope resulting in unacceptable long delays. The location is great, the food was good and I may be tempted to try again on another day but this was a rather bruising experience.

Following a recommendation, we stopped at The Verandah for lunch and was so impressed. We spent a wonderful afternoon blissed out on Sangria, arancini balls, snapper and pork belly! The staff were welcoming, food had great flavour and the prices were reasonable for what was on the plate. It was the perfect way to break up wine tasting, and with... More

a table on the verandah is lovely - the food is great but be careful you will love the tapas so much you will order too much

We went to The Verandah Restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. Upon arrival, the Maitre 'd (Sharon) asked for my husband by name and led him to our table. They had decorated his place with tiny stars and tiny "happy birthday images". Behind his seat on the verandah were 2 banners - "Happy Birthday" - what a welcoming and fantastic... More

We had a wonderfully friendly and interactive experience at the cellar door and were keen to take a bottle from our new Calais collection upstairs for the tapas tower. I love tapas and eat it regularly so I've had some excellent dishes and this didn't quite make the grade. Not bad by any means, just not great. So 3 for... More

My parents are locals who introduced me to the Verandah Restaurant and it is true gem! So many restaurants to choose from in Pokolbin, it is great to find one that stands out from the rest! The Tapas here is unique and delicious. The staff are very friendly and attentive. My parents attend a Locals night nearly every month so... More

This restaurant offers tapas style meals . There were a group of 8 of us and we ordered 5 items from the tapas menu. They stagger the food in a degustation style. The arancini balls were the best we tried in any restaurant in the Hunter. Eating here was similar to eating in someone's home. It was great to be... More

Visited Verandah over the Easter School holidays for a midweek lunch. Arrived to find just about every table on the verandah occupied, and the laughter and general chat indicating that people were having a good time. We went for 5 dishes between the 2 of us, togeteher with wine and beer. Special mention for the zucchini flowers together with a... More
