Thoroughly enjoyable tapas experience

It was a lovely sunny winter's day and we shared 6 tapas dishes with another couple on the verandah. The fancy looking tapas tower tempted us but we carefully chose dishes we could all enjoy with the aid of the helpful gluten free menu. We had booked and it was a busy Sunday but after a bit of a... read more

There were 4 of us for Tapas. We chose 5 dishes and all were delicious. The service was very good with friendly, knowledgeable staff. The jug of Sangria we thought was a little expensive at $34 and while it was enjoyable not the best any of us had ever had. Luckily the great food made up for it.

We were recommended by our hotel and they didn't disappoint. I find Tapas are a hit or miss, but this was a hit. The Tapas Tower was amazing. Both the cold and hot food on there was beautiful and really well presented. highly recommend.

Service was very slow to non existent, had to wave the waitstaff down to order drinks/coffees etc. the restaurant was mildly busy, not full, but extra staff wouldn't... More

I went there with my Vegetarian friend for dinner. It gave us some lovely options. Whilst me mainly shared our tapas we also were able to order for 1 person. The food is absolutely AMAZING! Staff brought some toys for my toddler to keep her occupied and were lovely with her. There was only one older staff member who was... More

My husband and I went for Sunday lunch and were seated on the balcony which has a great view of the grounds. I loved this place! The service was prompt and friendly, the menu was reasonably priced and the dishes were mouth watering good. We will definitely be returning.

I visited Verandah on a saturday night with my friends, and it was a great experience. The fire place is very welcoming on a cold winters night. The menu is diverse and has a lot of offer diners. My favourite was the pork belly, highly recommended. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Partner and I enjoyed lunch at Verandah on a sunny winter afternoon. We chose to share the tapas tower as we had enjoyed the chorizo on a previous visit and it was now only available on the tower. The dishes were all cooked well and we had more than enough food and choice that we were unable to finish it.... More
