Description: La Veranda is part of the Georges Michel Estate complex, where visitors can choose a selection of wine tasting ‘flights’, matched with French degustation plates. For example, enjoy four of our Golden Mile wines featuring Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose, with a plate of imported French cheeses or a selection of French ‘charcuterie’.Nestled amongst the vines and bathed in Marlborough’s prolific sunshine, La Veranda is the perfect venue to rest and relax in a very special ambiance, either indoors or outdoors.

“Simple food, stunning service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

Food is simple and unpretentious. Keenly priced and excellent value. Rudy is a host par excellence. Better for light snacks rather than a hearty repast.

“La Verandah is La Veranda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Apparently there are two names for one restaurant.
La Verandah and La Veranda are the same restaurant on Georges Michel Wine Estate, located on 56 Vintage lane, RD3 Blenheim

“a French touch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised with the food, not only platters but some old time favourite French dishes as well. We frequently spent our holidays in France and and were not disappointed with the quality and taste of the food of the Veranda.
We had the French onion soup and the cassoulet, greatly satisfying. The sausage in the cassoulet was home made as well the nice fresh and crusty bread. A lovely touch was the garnish of the plates with flowers and herbs. We had a small taste of the almond tart and next time will reserve some space for dessert.
Rudi the Chef/manager made us feel very welcome and when in Blenheim we certainly would like to repeat the experience of having lunch here again.
