“A must when visiting Mildura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

On a recent trip to Mildura we were absolutely delighted by the lunch experience at 'Verdict'!
We have enjoyed great food at many of the tapas bars in Melbourne and this wonderful little restaurant is up there with the best of them! The chef, Sean, recommended dishes, which we tried and found to be so flavorsome and so wery well presented. We were also recommended appropriate wine to enjoy with the meal, these complimented the dishes nicely. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with the overall experience and have already recommended to friends and family that they make this restaurant a priority when visiting the area.

“Top class food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

After not being able to get in to the Spanish Bar and Grill or Mildura Brewery (Tues night, country Australia - where's the recession?!!), it was with some intrepidation we went to Verdict looking for a good meal, with 2 kids who needed to eat! Very fortunately we did not have the same experience as the previous reviewer. The restaurant was busy and the wait staff were running around, but despite that the service was still attentive, friendly, and the plates of food arrived without a long wait. We ordered mainly sharing plates and the servings were usually 3 to a plate (bit tricky dividing that between 4!) and not huge (another reviewer as noted) but amazing flavours and presentation. Really top class cooking you would be more used to having in a major city, not a country town! The dessert plate ($14.90) was just superb, and the visit would be worth it just for that. We had 2 local wines by the glass, generous pours and good price. Would recommend this restaurant to any - our kids felt they ate well even with a degustation type of experience (and fun to share the plates too) and food infinitely better than the usual kids nuggets and chips!

“Fantabulously delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I absolutely enjoyed my experience at the Verdict. Sean is an amazing Chef and ensures his dishes are decadant. Flavour, presentation, freshness and Passion for good food, The selection of Tapas gives you the option to try many dishes that you dont get with other venues. Each dish is a delight to the eyes and your taste buds. You can come in and have a few dishes with friends and not feel bloated before a night out on the town. The atmosphere is fun and staff are so friendly you just want to stay and have a few bottles of wine. An outstanding, vibrant, friendly establishment. The staff are knowledgeable in the menu, the wine and the local area. A must when visiting Mildura, glad I went. Will definately eat here again. xx

“Interesting - worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

On a recent trip to Mildura we decided to have lunch at The Verdict after reading an article in the Mildura Living Magazine.

We chose to have the special on offer which was 6 course "tapas style" share plates. A delicious selection of items
concluding with an interesting selection of dessert items. Great flavours, fabulous presentation and good value we thought at $35 pp.

The only negative we felt that we had to wait an inordinate amount of time for service (2hours) for lunch - given we were the only people in the restaurant. Waiter however was friendly and knowledgeable.

We note that the restaurant was full in the
Evening. Worth a visit
