My Husband and I had lunch at Verandah recently and the food was amazing, so was the view! My husband very rarely eats seafood, but we had to "equally" halve the Barramundi dish and the soft shell crab haha. That's saying something!  Soo yummy. The...More

We went here after hearing good things and we were not disappointed at all. Food and service were amazing! I definitely suggest leaving room for dessert. If you are looking for a nice place to sit relax and indulge this is the place.

Service was horrible, my beef cheeks were firm and we never received our oysters. Didn't ask if we needed any drinks and got a dish every 45minutes. If your Prepared for a 3hr dinner not by choice then this is the place for you.

Service was fine but food was average at best and very small servings for the price. We tried this restaurant after seeing the great rating and reviews and were sorely disappointed. After 4 tapas (recommended we get 4 for two people) we are still hungry....More

We were in the mood for tapas and, hey, we're in the Hunter Valley, there's no bad restaurants right? Wrong... Each of the four dishes we ordered were bland and could have come out of the same pot. Nothing at all special about this food....More

Only guidedogs are allowed on the verandah. But they have grounds around where you could tie your dog to a tree
