This is a lovely setting - book early to ensure a verandah table. We found the service for lunch to be excellent - friendly and efficient staff - and the menu and wine choices very good. We ordered the Tapas Tower and although the variety and quantity of food was excellent, we felt that we could not really enjoy every... More

We went to this restaurant again to have dinner because we had very good experience before. They never fail to deliver to our expectations. Food was amazing. Even though Tapas were to share between two, they allowed us to have individual options and we were really impressed with their excellent service. Will definitely go there again.

Taking a weekend to enjoy company with friends, we booked this restaurant for its variety and general positive rating on TripAdvisor. Staff were fab, it was a lovely peaceful place on a Sunday evening and the food was just beautiful. Food that is a little fancy, not too clever but just enough to challenge your tastebuds. It was perfect for... More

This was our second visit to the Verandah and it was perfect. We went as a couple the first time and this time it was with friends. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Sharon looked after us very well and made the whole experience very special. The weather was perfect which just added to the experience

The location for the restaurant is very pretty overlooking the vineyards. But on a hot day we choose to sit inside with the aircon & the interior is a bit depressing. They try to push you into having the Tapas Tower ($90 for 2), but we had 3 plates; these are not Spanish Tapas size & that was plenty for... More

I noticed this place was attached to a winery, so rather than visit the huge gaudy overpriced eatery that is Hunter Valley Gardens, I checked out the menu online for this place which seemed interesting. I got there and they had so much variety I barely knew where to start. To be honest though, I'm sure whatever you order will... More
