Description: The Verandah is a celebrated restaurant that brings you a faultless combination of heavenly traditional Continental cuisine, blended with innovation, fine wines and discreet, attentive service, in a classic yet relaxing setting in true Peninsula style.The Verandah re-opened following a six-month-long extensive restoration and refurbishment of its interiors and kitchens in August 2009. It maintains the relaxed and spacious atmosphere of the original Repulse Bay Hotel but with a Grand Hall to create a more spacious and welcoming arrival experience and a revitalised interior. A new Grand Staircase provides stylish and convenient passage from the restaurant to the Palm Court and the retail arcade. Regulars can rest assured that The Verandah's celebrated signature dishes — and its traditional English Afternoon Tea and Sunday Brunch — remain on its bill of fare.Opening hours : Wednesday to Saturday, Public Holidays Lunch 12:00 noon to 2:30 pm Afternoon Tea 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm(3:30 pm to 5:30 pm onPublic Holidays) Dinner 7:00 pm to 10:30 pm Sunday Brunch 11:00 am to 2:30 pm Afternoon Tea 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm Dinner 7:00 pm to 10:30 pm Closed every Monday and Tuesday (except Public Holidays).Lunch and Afternoon TeaKindly note that our dress code is Smart Casual.We respectfully request that gentlemen refrain from wearing plastic footwear, beach flip-flops and sandals.

The good things first... The restaurant is just gorgeous - with an old world colonial charm, and lovely sea views. Perfect ambience for a brunch/ lunch/ afternoon tea.

We went on a public holiday... On those days, They serve a set lunch and there are no ala carte options. For HKD 498pp, this includes buffet spreads of appetizers (mostly salads and cold cuts) and desserts, one soup and one entree (from a choice of 4). Three of us ordered the pork sausage with mash, and one ordered the salmon. The salmon was okay, but the sausage was smelly and tasted almost raw (may be its supposed to be like that?)... All of us returned it after one bite. They kindly replaced our mains with the roast duck... We didn't like that either... But it was more edible than the sausage. The desserts were decent, especially the mango pudding, the raspberry tart and the bread and butter pudding. Overall, the food was a disappointment, especially given the price tag.

The service was okay. Appreciate the fact that they replaced our mains with no argument, and didn't try to hurry us, even as the place started filling up with the afternoon tea crowd.

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary. I'm glad I did. A very romantic atmosphere with great food. A bit pricey but about what I expected from a spot this nice. Candlelights on the table were nice. I tried the baby spring chicken. It arrived to the table flaming - very cool. I'd recommend this place for a special occasion dinner. I'm curious to try the brunch and will probably return to try it sometime.

Nice Sunday brunch with good food and atmosphere - we're not the only ones who think so - we have tried to get reservations several times and the place is booked. Alot of private functions. Plan in advance.

Few weeks ago I have re-visited this place for lunch again. Unfortunately although the dress code (long sleeve shirt + no plastic footwear) was mentioned during the booking process however it is not strictly enforced - few other diners wearing plastic clothing and footwear.

In terms of the quality of the food during my previous visit it was between fine and normal food. this time the quality of the food is just average.
