We were having the perfect birthday weekend until went to this place to "have lunch"! Was highly recommended by friends so we expected a great meal! Horrible and old dated place, the slowest service ever, just 4 tables in the restaurant and about 1 hour wait between each of the tapas to be served. Mushrooms were impossible to eat, spiciest...

We had not been to the Verandah prior to today and had heard great reviews and some okay, today we gave it a go with friends. New owners (chefs) took over Monday. The food was amazing, the venue is magnificent and they have a vegetarian menu - very happy - will return - highly recommend.

The food was awesome, views of the vineyard was great. While the portions are tapas style, they are pretty big. We were pleased that they had a kids menu as that helped a lot with our toddler. And service was impeccable, friendly and accommodating with our young toddler. Our toddler also loved the food.

End April Afternoon, Sydney and the surroundings are at the Sunday best. This felt like the jewel in the crown. Huge servings - so dont be fooled by the word "tapas" - but each to perfection. Lovely sangria too !

We loved this place! Relaxed, friendly, gorgeous view, attentive personal service, absolutely delicious food and simply gorgeous views. Be sure to ask for the verandah/ outside seating, this way you'll be guaranteed of a great view. The verandah is L shaped we sat on the long side which overlooked the drive before the stunning part of the view/ the vineyards... More

Duck and trout dishes were great. They also have a nice gluten free and veg only menu. The dishes are nicely portioned. The suggestion is 5-6 dishes per couple but 4 went nicely with a few glasses of the Estate Shiraz. Would certainly return again. Best to get seats on the open air balcony.

Thank Brandontonio
