Wonderful in all regards. Enjoyed superb Italian dishes in a fabulous setting, overlooking the picturesque Venetian houses and port of Hydra. Went twice during our stay, once on account of the Tripadvisor reviews and then back for our last night because we enjoyed the first dinner so much.

They provided warmed bread and green olive tapenade, which is the best we've had. Each pasta dish was superb. The 'shrimp' pasta does a disservice to the prawns, they were the size of a baby's arm(!) and of course not forgetting the staff, who were warm, friendly & attentive.

Easy to find and not that hard to reach from the harbour. Walk from the pirate bar (Votsi St..I think), Veranda is sign posted to turn right at Ostria, then 100m further, skip up 20 stairs and you're there.

We were looking forward to Greek food as advertised on Tripadviser, but instead had a menu of Italian/French food. They messed up our order even though there were very few people in restaurant.

We were going to eat there, they have a great menu, you have to walk up a number of stairs, but the view of the City is well worth the stair clime. We were just too tired from our mountain clime that day.

This restaurant came recommended and when we reached the top of the long staircase we saw why. The restaurant has a rooftop setting overlooking Hydra bay and the town and with the evening lights brightening the night the atmosphere is very romantic. It looked a far more expensive restaurant than the menu prices stated but the food was delicious. The service was also first class and as the evening we visited was quite quiet we were able to have a chat with the waiter and waitress about the local elections taking place that day. We were given a delicious icecream dessert to share on the house too. At the end of the meal the current mayor retained his seat and we left the Veranda with wonderful memories to add to our holiday.

Although the sign post to the Veranda can lead to an unlikely and difficult ascent and entrance, there is actually a very easy approach if you ask. Once settled in, we were delighted by the view of Hydra port and by the courtesy of the staff. There was no need for a starter because on entry small dips and nibbles were provided. Our main courses were a mussel risotto and a spaghetti bolognaise. Both helpings were enormously generous and very reasonably priced. Had we been less gluttonous, smaller portions would have been appreciated. My wife found her bolognaise excellent: fresh and meaty with the spaghetti finely cooked. My mussels were large and a little too salty. We drank a quarter litre of each of the red and the white house wine which were ideal with our food. This was our cheapest evening meal on Hydra and one of our best.
