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

Beautiful tapas with a breathtaking view.. We were on the grape mobile track and this was a fantastic place to stop and take in the scenery. Gorgeous food with wine to match and a service that was very welcoming. Service was very friendly, especially Brodie.

I am a regular of this amazing restaurant. It is my absolute favourite. I eat all over newcastle and the hunter valley vineyards and nothing compares. The view is amazing. The food and cocktails are perfection. And the staff are so welcoming and friendly, happy to help and have a laugh. A very special place for me.

Awesome array of tapas and besides being a bit windy so they had the screens down it was a nice place to enjoy lunch.

We visited the Verandah primarily because it was ranked highly here on Trip Advisor. Perhaps they were having an off weekend, because it was not busy but the service was close to terrible. Comically bad in fact. There were 5 different wait staff that annoyed us in the first 15 minutes until we placed an order despite telling 3 of... More

As Lovers of Pokolbin in the beautiful Hunter Valley NSW we have had the good fortune to dine at The Verandah on many occasions, every time as good if not better than the time before. Just back off another brilliant weekend where once again we experienced all of what the Verandah has to offer, including the incredible Tapas Tower along... More

We unfortunately did not make a reservation hence was not able to avail of their lunch. However, the wait staff said that she can prepare a tower of hors d'oeuvres that she can have set up in their garden in front of their vineyard and we gladly chose this and we were glad that we did. The amount and quality... More

To say that the Verandah is "a modern tapas style menu showcasing the best local produce" is an understatement. The food here was really excellent - quite the best tapas meal I have ever had (and that includes meals in Spain and elsewhere in Europe). The tastes, combinations and textures of all five tapas we had were exceedingly pleasant. From... More

Some might call us regulars to The Verandah, just a day trip from Sydney to our favourite winery and tapas in the Hunter Valley. We enjoyed lunch on the verandah at The Verandah today. The pork belly and the spatchcock are SO GOOD! Needless to say we will be back....
