My husband and I had lunch here at the weekend and it was fantastic. When we arrived I was a little worried it would be too 'posh' to feel comfortable but after our waitress introduced herself and went through the menu with us, I felt comfortable enough to ask about portion size - I usually feel bad asking but given I'm 8 months pregnant I need to know I'll be getting enough food and was keen not to get 'nouvelle cuisine' size portions!
She recommended that we just went with one vegetable side dish between us given the choices we'd made for a main course and she was absolutely spot on, we couldn't have eaten any more but finished off nearly everything that was there. The food was amazing - I had the baked fish which that day was snapper and it was a huge piece of fish perfectly cooked and served with such a variety of flavours (from baby radish to orange) that I couldn't even identify half of them! The whole dish had obviously been put together with skill and an attention to detail rarely seen, well by me anyway....
My husband had the steak and that was cooked to perfection, again served with a variety of accompaniments. We just had the almonds and bread to share as a starter, the mains and then a dessert each (the lemon/lime/ginger curd is amazing) but we were absolutely stuffed and regretted our decision to go with the Belgian hot chocolate and truffles at the end!
With 2 glasses of sparkling wine and a red wine 'flight' (three 60ml glasses of a selection of d'Arenberg wines) for my husband the whole thing came to about $160 which we thought was excellent for what we'd had - both in portion size and quality.
We left our toddler with friends on this occasion but they do cater for children and there was a menu for kids. There are beautiful gardens around the Verandah where you could take kids for a play if they get bored but I have to say I think I'd be tempted to save this one for a more couples-type occasion.
So overall an excellent lunch and one I plan to repeat on our next special occasion.
