Recently dined at the Verandah Restaurant Pokolbin, amazing tapas food! Been there on many occasions and it never disappoints. Soufflés are wonderful!

We were a group of 12 people staying in a guesthouse. Matt from Verandah organised for a chef to provide BBQ seafood cooked at our venue. The food was delicious and freshly cooked and the kitchen was left immaculate. You can bring your wine to the table. If you have big eaters in your group, you may prefer to choose... More

Verandah was recommended to us, we tasted the wines of Calais Estate in the cellar under the restaurant before dinner as we had booked a table for 1pm, under instruction from the staff when we rang to enquire about the restaurant. We walked up stairs to the restaurant at about 1.05pm and the table wasn't ready and the place was... More

Great mix of foods in the tapas style menu. The trio of oyster styles included 2 of my all time favourites, Bloody Mary and tempura. Enjoyed the pork belly but the lamb was the pick of the menu! Fantastic flavour and texture. Would recommend eating here for the lamb alone. :-)

7 people, 5 main dishes & a variety of desserts. Perfect in all respects. You will pay for the experience but you will be glad you did

Had a late lunch, busy day but staff were accommodating. Food was served in large quantities, well prepared but seemed like mass produced. Otherwise a fine visit with friendly staff.

4 of us had a very pleasant Sunday night here sampling the tappas. There was a good selection to choose from & everything we ordered was both visually pleasant & very tasty. The atmosphere was good & the staff very good. For the area the prices were good. We would definitly return, not pretentious, just pleasant.

I took some friends to lunch today and can't thank the staff at Verandah enough!!! One of my friends has a severe nut/seed allergy and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. She and her daughter are also vegetarian and the options were out of this world! Sharon made us more than welcome, we felt we became part of th... More

Had a wonderful long lunch with 7 friends at the veranda last week end. Had to pay a large $200 deposit to book which did not impress , however once we got settled in on the veranda with the lovely Spring sun beaming in I soon forgot about it, food is tapas style and very nice indeed accompanied with a...

We visited the verandah after a recommendation from a local. great choice, the food was beautiful and staff friendly. We had 5 dishes which was recommended for the 4 of us..... But 4 would have been plenty.

Thank Leigh C
