This is a high end restaurant with fantastic food and great wine! It's romantic if your looking to impress. So book early to get a spot right by the fire place. The waitress we had was an older lady but was perfect in manner and in the amount she came to the table. It's easy to find and has some... More

Had a lovely meal at Verandah. The staff were very helpful; the waitress that seated us explained the menu perfectly and made some much appreciated suggestions. The tapas were brought out one at a time which was great, we could take our time eating and never felt rushed. The tapas are individual portions for each person so you aren't dividing... More

Sat in the winter sun on the verandah enjoying the views, wines and good range of tapas There were some standard offerings warm olives, chargrilled capsicum, baby calamari on the 'tapas tower' but we opted for more adventurous plates : Thai blue swimmer crab and prawn fish cakes, goats cheese stuffed zucchini flowers in a quinoa crust, pork, saffron arancini...

We were a large group, 17, out for an in-laws 50th birthday lunch. We had a ball there! The food was great (we did a set menu) and the setting beautiful. The icing on the cake was the staff - they were amazing! Coped wonderfully with us, laughed with (and at) us. Rob and Sharon were there names I think?... More

We stopped in for a late lunch on the way to a few days up the Hunter. Beautiful setting on the verandah and the service was excellent. We were recommended 5 dishes from their tapas menu and the servings were more than generous. 4 would have been plenty for the two of us. The food was tasty and creative with... More

We visited the Verandah Restaurant in June and we were welcomed to a intimate room with a huge fireplace. The food is tapas style, the plates of either vegetables or meat were really good sizes, a group of 4 adults, none of us left hungry. The wine list is very good, either by the glass or bottle. We also ordered... More

We visited here in December 2015 on an extremely hot day. We sat outside on the verandah but, even though we asked to have the fan directed near us, it was still extremely hot. The service and food were really good.

We loved the atmosphere and friendliness of this lovely restaurant. We were seated on the veranda with views over the gardens and vines. Hits Great variety of dishes with Spanish and popular Australian options. Dishes are quite generous with a selection of 4-5 plates recommended for 2 people Misses Very popular so booking in advance essential!

Beautiful food and wine magical setting. Had lunch on the balcony on a sunny day. Menu was seasonal, extensive and glorious. Only complaint was the batter on the fried zucchinis and goats cheese was too heavy and not tempura. everything else was cooked beautifully and the wine was amazing and local. Great service, great location, worth the drive out a... More

i dined here with my parents on the Sunday of the June long weekend in 2016. We booked fairly well in advance and as only a small group we were able to book a table on the balcony easily. Firstly I cannot recommend the tables on the balcony (or the verandah) enough. There was indoor seating which would be suitable... More
