“Makati Quality in Puerto Galera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Beautiful room overlooking the bay with lovely off-sea breezes. Excellent food - especially the steaks - and a very civilized wine list. Charming service, as you would expect. Australian owned and managed.

“try the chicken and mango dish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

I wanted to lick the plate when I was finished. The food was delicious, sadly we were alone in the restaurant. Go to the Veranda it is worth the climb up the steps, the view is lovely and the breeze is cooling.

“Climb-up and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

It's a narrow entry and a bit of a climb up to the restaurant where the ambiance is nice and the staff well trained. Prices are the same as the beach-front and there is a nice selection of modestly priced wines.

The menu has a selection of salads, pasta, fish, fowl and meat dishes. The Chef's free appetiser of seared tuna was a delicious and substantial surprise treat. All the dishes were beautifully presented with the salad fresh and the squash soup extremely tasty.

A very good restaurant, probably underutilised because of it's out of the way location.

The restaurant is within the main building of the Out of the Blue Resort in the middle of Small LaLaguna Beach, Sabang, Puerto Galera, Mindoro, Philippines.

“The Best Food and the Best Wine list in Puerto Galera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

I went to The Verandah restaurant just recently. You might have to search for it because it is tucked away in the Out Of The Blue Resort, halfway up a small hill and overlooking the Small Lalaguna Beach. It is sandwiched between Portofino Resort and the Full Moon restaurant. While it might seem a bit difficult to find, it is well worth the effort. They have a wonderful menu that changes three times a year and the food they serve is outstanding. It is very difficult to find a high quality restaurant anywhere in Puerto Galera, but if you really like your food you will not be disappointed with The Verandah. The Wagyu Steak has to be tried to be believed. It is the most tender, best tasting steak I've ever had. And there is a great wine list there as well. All the wines are properly stored in a controlled climate and there are wines available that are almost impossible to find anywhere else in the Philippines. Mostly from Australia, check out the red wines from Margaret River and the Barossa Valley. Simply superb. Ask for a table on the balcony to enjoy the view over their brand new swimming pool (the biggest pool in Puerto Galera) and over the ocean to Verde Island. The staff are really helpful and attentive to anything you might need. If you are looking for a great tasting meal instead of the usual hotel offerings, give The Verandah restaurant a try. I rate it the very best restaurant anywhere in Puerto Galera.
